    Of course he’s trying to make money as well, but this type of shit is what MUST happen if you want true police reform. Enough of these weak, panicky cops killing people because they don’t know how to handle themselves in a physical confrontation. Train cops to grapple and train them to calm the fuck down. People want reform right? Spend the money to train police properly.
    There's no shortage of good training offered to law enforcement. Almost anyone I follow through martial arts/fight stuff, that knows what they are doing, trains them through at least seminars and workshops..

    Doing the training is the problem. And that doesn't even touch on the bunch of women and fat fucks who are physically incapable of applying any of it anyway. Weed them out and you'd have a lot less issues with overcompensation during physical confrontations. Then figure out how to make regular training mandatory.

    It's amazing to hear the rationale of folks who have decided that what usually takes a decade and gets pulled off the market within 5 years afterwards for issues anyway is going to somehow be safe after less than a year.

    Someone I know from Special Olympics stopped by on their way back from getting the shot for their 21 year old daughter. The girl is mentally retarded (the diagnosed version, not just your average American version), so she has no desire or understanding of it. She's strong as a bull, no health issues, and is under lockdown because mom is going through cancer treatment.

    Nothing whatsoever to be gained for her, even IF the damned thing was safe and does what they claim, which is virtually nothing anyway.

    Poor girl doesn't realize that they she is part of the human trials.

    "Enemy of the People" was never hyperbole. If anything, it was an understatement. "Imminent existential threat to the American People" is more like it.
    Too lazy to look up the list, but many of the heads of the biggest "news" outlets and their chief "reporters" are literally all married to politicians.

    Here's the thing. Cops who also happened to be well versed in martial arts had been writing and teaching LE this stuff decades before the Gracies became fashionable. The late Robert Koga, for example had a couple of excellent books on this. Written in the late 60's and I've had both of them on my bookshelf since then. Koga was a black belt in Judo, Aikido, Jodo (stick fighting), and a 5th degree black belt in (Japanese) Jujitsu. He was head trainer for this stuff at the LAPD Academy, and I had the opportunity to train with a couple of cops he taught when I still lived in California. Very tough guy they said, but he knew where the lines and limits were for application of force. Of course the chokes he taught got overcome by community organizer activism in the 90's. Also, in general Koga assumed the cop involved would be solo.

    The problem with more than a few teachers, adapted martial arts, and general approaches to LE training is trying to adapt techniques that intended for sport or the battlefield that weren't even a good fit for earlier more LE-tolerant times than we see now. Combatives involve techniques that would land cops in the shit in a heartbeat, especially these days. They were intended for something other than domestic custodial control situations when arresting someone. While sports based arts have some crossover and transfer to what is needed for cops, too often the approach to teaching them to LE can't seem to overcome the rules imposed by refereed match play.

The NCBI is a branch of the National Institute for Health, so one would think such a study would be widely reported by mainstream media and embraced by the “science-loving” folks in Big Tech.

    Instead, a DuckDuckGo search reveals it was picked up by ZERO mainstream media outlets and Big Tech tyrants will suspend people who post it, as political strategist Steve Cortes learned the hard way when he posted a Tweet that went against the face mask narrative. The Tweet itself featured a quote and a link that prompted Twitter to suspend his account, potentially indefinitely.
    Are you still using Twitter? A peer-reviewed paper in a journal violates their policies on spreading misleading and potentially harmful misinformation. Last half of the paper:

    Psychological effects of wearing facemasks
    Psychologically, wearing facemask fundamentally has negative effects on the wearer and the nearby person. Basic human-to-human connectivity through face expression is compromised and self-identity is somewhat eliminated [47], [48], [49]. These dehumanizing movements partially delete the uniqueness and individuality of person who wearing the facemask as well as the connected person [49]. Social connections and relationships are basic human needs, which innately inherited in all people, whereas reduced human-to-human connections are associated with poor mental and physical health [50], [51]. Despite escalation in technology and globalization that would presumably foster social connections, scientific findings show that people are becoming increasingly more socially isolated, and the prevalence of loneliness is increasing in last few decades [50], [52]. Poor social connections are closely related to isolation and loneliness, considered significant health related risk factors [50], [51], [52], [53].

    A meta-analysis of 91 studies of about 400,000 people showed a 13% increased morality risk among people with low compare to high contact frequency [53]. Another meta-analysis of 148 prospective studies (308,849 participants) found that poor social relationships was associated with 50% increased mortality risk. People who were socially isolated or fell lonely had 45% and 40% increased mortality risk, respectively. These findings were consistent across ages, sex, initial health status, cause of death and follow-up periods [52]. Importantly, the increased risk for mortality was found comparable to smoking and exceeding well-established risk factors such as obesity and physical inactivity [52]. An umbrella review of 40 systematic reviews including 10 meta-analyses demonstrated that compromised social relationships were associated with increased risk of all-cause mortality, depression, anxiety suicide, cancer and overall physical illness [51].

    As described earlier, wearing facemasks causing hypoxic and hypercapnic state that constantly challenges the normal homeostasis, and activates “fight or flight” stress response, an important survival mechanism in the human body [11], [12], [13]. The acute stress response includes activation of nervous, endocrine, cardiovascular, and the immune systems [47], [54], [55], [56]. These include activation of the limbic part of the brain, release stress hormones (adrenalin, neuro-adrenalin and cortisol), changes in blood flow distribution (vasodilation of peripheral blood vessels and vasoconstriction of visceral blood vessels) and activation of the immune system response (secretion of macrophages and natural killer cells) [47], [48]. Encountering people who wearing facemasks activates innate stress-fear emotion, which is fundamental to all humans in danger or life threating situations, such as death or unknown, unpredictable outcome. While acute stress response (seconds to minutes) is adaptive reaction to challenges and part of the survival mechanism, chronic and prolonged state of stress-fear is maladaptive and has detrimental effects on physical and mental health. The repeatedly or continuously activated stress-fear response causes the body to operate on survival mode, having sustain increase in blood pressure, pro-inflammatory state and immunosuppression [47], [48].

    Long-Term health consequences of wearing facemasks
    Long-term practice of wearing facemasks has strong potential for devastating health consequences. Prolonged hypoxic-hypercapnic state compromises normal physiological and psychological balance, deteriorating health and promotes the developing and progression of existing chronic diseases [23], [38], [39], [43], [47], [48], [57], [11], [12], [13]. For instance, ischemic heart disease caused by hypoxic damage to the myocardium is the most common form of cardiovascular disease and is a number one cause of death worldwide (44% of all non-communicable diseases) with 17.9 million deaths occurred in 2016 [57]. Hypoxia also playing an important role in cancer burden [58]. Cellular hypoxia has strong mechanistic feature in promoting cancer initiation, progression, metastasis, predicting clinical outcomes and usually presents a poorer survival in patients with cancer. Most solid tumors present some degree of hypoxia, which is independent predictor of more aggressive disease, resistance to cancer therapies and poorer clinical outcomes [59], [60]. Worth note, cancer is one of the leading causes of death worldwide, with an estimate of more than 18 million new diagnosed cases and 9.6 million cancer-related deaths occurred in 2018 [61].

    With respect to mental health, global estimates showing that COVID-19 will cause a catastrophe due to collateral psychological damage such as quarantine, lockdowns, unemployment, economic collapse, social isolation, violence and suicides [62], [63], [64]. Chronic stress along with hypoxic and hypercapnic conditions knocks the body out of balance, and can cause headaches, fatigue, stomach issues, muscle tension, mood disturbances, insomnia and accelerated aging [47], [48], [65], [66], [67]. This state suppressing the immune system to protect the body from viruses and bacteria, decreasing cognitive function, promoting the developing and exacerbating the major health issues including hypertension, cardiovascular disease, diabetes, cancer, Alzheimer disease, rising anxiety and depression states, causes social isolation and loneliness and increasing the risk for prematurely mortality [47], [48], [51], [56], [66].

    Conclusion
    The existing scientific evidences challenge the safety and efficacy of wearing facemask as preventive intervention for COVID-19. The data suggest that both medical and non-medical facemasks are ineffective to block human-to-human transmission of viral and infectious disease such SARS-CoV-2 and COVID-19, supporting against the usage of facemasks. Wearing facemasks has been demonstrated to have substantial adverse physiological and psychological effects. These include hypoxia, hypercapnia, shortness of breath, increased acidity and toxicity, activation of fear and stress response, rise in stress hormones, immunosuppression, fatigue, headaches, decline in cognitive performance, predisposition for viral and infectious illnesses, chronic stress, anxiety and depression. Long-term consequences of wearing facemask can cause health deterioration, developing and progression of chronic diseases and premature death. Governments, policy makers and health organizations should utilize prosper and scientific evidence-based approach with respect to wearing facemasks, when the latter is considered as preventive intervention for public health.

    BLM is the new KKK. Intimidating jurors and witnesses is back to the Democrat Jim Crow era.

    Hard and open techniques are still taught. For the sheriff's boys they are especially useful. Brawls still happen everywhere, everyday and it still holds true that you can get better at it only by doing it often.

    Training issue. Which is to say a money issue.
