still wondering why this was even considered?
The following is my opinion as a member participating in this discussion.
There are lots and lots of reasons to review something like this. This is just my opinion as a member, but consider all the pitfalls:
Is this advice even real? Does it really work? Is it dangerous and can someone get hurt?
Is it legal? Do we want to be showing people how to escape custody?
My biggest concern was the validity of the video. The one where he snaps it behind his back looks fake to me. I'm going to go home and try it, but
I do not think there is enough force behind the back to do that, and I suspect those zip ties were modified to break easily. He also tightens it down
in the front with his teeth and no warning to not try this alone. Suppose someone cuts off the circulation to their hands and then can't break
The good news is, the thread was re-opened. I'm surprised to see the criticism over just reviewing the thread?
As an ATS Staff Member, I will not moderate in threads such as this where I have participated as a member.
In My Humble Opinion, the best way to determine if something like this is fake or not is to review, and discuss it.
we are here, or so I thought to discuss topics, not to "teach people "stuff.
The discussion alone leads to education, all of which is good.
again, just my humble thoughts... not meant to criticise.
I even stated I was just curious as to the midset that would close a topic that was niether illegal, immoral, or harmful to ATS or it's members in
I pay close attention.. one of my "faults."
and without searching, is the Moderator that suggested closing the thread actually a real LEO?
If so that explains both midset and kneejerk reaction to suppress any information from the masses, that may expose a weakness in any LEO action or
No disrespect intended.
again, this is ATS's house, and I am but a humble guest here.
I mean no discontent or disruption.
