Surviving an Ambush

Constant vigilance is the key: on the home front, on patrol!

Ambush. Perhaps planned well ahead, perhaps the “hasty ambush” that occurs in a moment of panic when the malefactor realizes he is about to be unexpectedly arrested. In all its forms, ambush is a deadly threat to the good guys and gals, and even to their loved ones. Recent tragic headlines prove the point.

In February 2007, some person or persons opened fire with a 9mm at the residence of a Jacksonville, Florida, police officer. Bullets shattered the front window of the home, but fortunately, neither the officer nor his loved ones were harmed. Half a dozen shell casings were recovered from a nearby yard. In the wake of highly publicized officer-involved shootings in that city, a group calling itself The New Black Panther Party had called on people to “fight police in the street.”
