Morgan Reynolds Quote

“In the early and mid-1970’s, public advice was to cooperate with robbers and rapists in order to minimize personal injury. Appeasement, in other words. While this may be good advice in some circumstances, as general behavior it makes crime more rewarding. A nation of sheep is nice for wolves.”

~ Morgan Reynolds

Crime by Choice, p. 84.

Criminals tend to strike their easiest targets. If they know you have the means to resists and that you will resists-they will move on to an easier target.

And when sheep lie down with wolves, the sheep don't get much rest. Just read Restons comments and you will know that we have become a nation of sheep.

Cooperate with have GOT to be kidding! How about we just drop them in their tracks? Wouldn't that clean up the crime rate in record time?

"Make yourselves sheep and the wolves will eat you." (Benjamin Franklin)

E Archer, NYC

We in New York City are prohibited from defending ourselves against common criminals, thus the high rate of crime. We are constantly told to just give the criminal whatever he asks for, that it is not worth the risk to defend oneself. It is a philosophy I find reprehensible, and it merely conditions us to bend over whenever a government authority tells us to. "It's for your own safety that we must pat you down and feel you up." Who will protect us from the criminals in positions of power?

Do asses run in herds? It seems so.

That advice was given because it would have been politically incorrect to give the best advice- just shoot the bastard!
