So how do you handle a veiled threat? Men, how would you handle a veiled threat to your significant other? Do you spout off at the mouth with threats that have no force behind them, and that cannot be acted upon? Do you go after the person wherever they may be and preemptively pound the “IIITard” out of them? Do you go further than that? When given a situation such as this you can do one of two things. You can react badly, acting out of an emotionally juvenile need to “Show you’re a man.”, or you can be an adult, and assess the situation to determine what, if any, response should be acted upon.
Fairy K of III Cosmetics decided to try and step up the rhetoric by making comments about the upcoming wedding of Mason Dixon Vixen and myself. I guess he felt that it would show to all the world (primarily just the “III Person Society”) that his “Blue Collar Intel” network was “The” information powerhouse to be reckoned with, but all it actually showed was that he could do a google search using my Fiancee’s name (yup, he’s a CONversation piece that one is).
Then he decided to cross a line, and make a comment that tells me he wants me to know he knows where my Fiancee works. When Whitney found out, she said she wanted to address it, since it was about her directly, and my response was “Go for it.” She commented over at IIIPooPoo, and the below screenshots shows the conversation.
“Experient” is the name of the company that my Fiancee works for, and is listed on her main FB page because she felt no need to hide her employers name, and still doesn’t.
She commented only to let him know she knew the type of BS he was playing and didn’t appreciate it. She didn’t say anything derogatory, and her response was apropos. notice how this IIITard starts off acting (story of his life, right?) like he’s friendly, even after he asserted that Whitney and Lisa Lane were “Fat and Fugly” two months ago.
But didn’t he say this a while back about attacking the women folk?
Obviously, what he said about our upcoming wedding and him “Checking into that properly” (What, like he checked into my status in LE as Courtland Grojean the “Reporter” and tried to get me fired?), was an veiled threat towards screwing with our wedding plans and the venue. More important to me is the veiled threat towards my Fiancee by saying basically “Hey, I know where she works.” Should I worry about his brother stopping by and messing with her (I don’t know him, he might be a perfectly likable fellow)? So how do I address it? Well I’ve listed below what is considered to be the “Gold Standard” when determining what type and amount of force is justified in a confrontation.
Ability- Does the attacker have the ability to physically harm you? Example: 90 pound, 4’9″, untrained female hitting a 300 pound 6’5, overtly muscular MMA trained male. Can she hurt the big guy? Yes, but the level of damage, and the ability of the trained individual to respond with “Less Than Lethal” (it generally will not kill if properly applied, example: pepper spray or a strike to a joint) combatives precludes the use of deadly or even “Less Lethal” (less likely to kill if properly applied, example: bean bag round or a palm strike to the chest instead of a bean bag round or fist to the throat) force. Does Fairy K have the Ability to attack my Fiancee? Sure, but what adult sized (even if small) male doesn’t if they can get hold of a bat or a gun? Does his talk about his skills and feats of “Daring do” worry me? Uh….No. So we’ve determined that there is Ability present, even if it’s amateur hour.
Opportunity-Is the person in the position to Attack you? Example: Someone 100 yards away is not a physical threat with their personal combatives/weapons (hands, feet, elbows, etc.). Does Scambo have the Opportunity to personally go after my Fiancee? Sure, if he took a road trip, but I’m thinkin’ he doesn’t have the funding for that right now. Does he have the ability to call someone to “Take care of that.”? Sure, but who really is gonna take the chance of catchin’ a charge for him, especially with his Convict background and penchant for “Conning” people into things? So we’ve determined that even if it’s a stretch, he does have the Opportunity to be in a position to hurt my Fiancee, or have her hurt.
Jeopardy-The difference between a situation that could be dangerous, and one that actually is. Example: A patron in a convenience store notices off to one side a group of older male teenagers staring at them with a look of open hostility, but staying where they are.As opposed to the same group getting into positions that surround the patron, and making overtly threatening remarks to that patron. So does the IIITard’s veiled internet threat rise to the level of imminent Jeopardy? As much as I’d like to say yes, objectively, I have to say no. He has said so many things over the years that were veiled or implied threats to others, so to take this seriously, it would require something to show he ever followed through on anything in his life (threats or otherwise), and there is no proof whatsoever of that being the case. So we’ve determined that imminent Jeopardy is not present.
Preclusion- Was the “Force” you applied the last resort, or did you have other options you did not take advantage of? Example: The above 90 pound, 4’9″ untrained female pulls a knife on the 300 pound, 6’5″, muscular, UNTRAINED, muscular male. Obviously, we can’t determine anything about Preclusion right now, because there was nothing of substance to to react with force to. You have to have completed the act of “Force response” before an assessment can be made of the “Use of Force”.
So according to the above criteria, I guess a preventative “Use of Force” in this situation is not warranted huh? Am I supposed to rebut with my own internet threats? Nope, not my style for the same reason I always carry concealed as opposed to open carry. A bad guy will see my gun when they’re lookin’ down the barrel. So let’s look at some statements that have been made for educational purposes.
OK, so let’s say he shows up at my front door with his hands empty, how could I respond? Obviously, I could not shoot him in the face, because even though he has said a number of things on his blog about me, he’s always been smart enough not to make an actual threat. What are my options? Tell him to leave? Yes. What if he doesn’t want to leave? Call the PD to remove him for trespassing? Yup, that’s how it works in our “civilized” society. What if he decides to put his hands on me? Can I shoot him in the face? Nope. In that situation, I’d have to place him in a position to no longer be a physical threat, but unless he is stupid enough to pull out a weapon, my verifiable background, dictates that I use empty hand combatives against his talk of “experiencing wetness”, unless he escalates it to weapons (maybe he’ll whip out a garrote). You can’t kill or attempt to kill a man in a fight because you heard him talk shit about being a bad ass to anyone, it’s that simple.
I have been in life threatening situations, and can articulate in court why I feared for my life (if so), and why I used the level of force that I did. Even though I cannot respond to him showing up empty handed at my door with deadly force, that does not prevent my Fiancee from responding that way. She does not have the training and background that I do, and her force escalation against a man who has said he’s a bad ass and has tried to make people believe he has killed others would be straight to deadly force (a firearm) because she has no other options when confronted by someone who has no reason to be in that location, on private property, other than to attack them. Of course I know he would agree with her being able to do that, considering what he’s said about his own wife’s “Self Defense Doctrine”, and of course it’s to the extreme,
“My wife is under no moral obligation to let a known Bad Guy with known bad intent to get within handgun range or buckle-to-buckle range. I believe she maintains the Moral High Ground of Self Defense to proactively defend herself, if needed against a known threat, at rifle range.”
He has foolishly said numerous times that those (wives, etc.) who are with people who “Take the kings coin” are just as responsible for what he calls “treason”, and should be dealt with accordingly.
So here’s the next point. Could this be considered stalking when using the “Scared Holly” definition? I don’t know, you tell me.
Let’s see. He’s posted my full name on his blog. He’s posted images of me that were taken from a “secure” FB page (we know who grabbed that for him). He’s post my employment info. He called my employer and tried to get me fired. He’s talked about our upcoming wedding plans, and sayin’ he’s gonna “Check into that properly.”. Now he’s posting my Fiancee’s place of employment. Unlike the Kerodin’s assertions against Kenny, all my facts can be substantiated in court. By the “Scared Holly” definition, I assess that Ol’ “Fairy K” is stalkin’ me and my Fiancee, am I wrong?
So concludes another episode of “The IIITard Kronicles”.
And yes, the portable reloading kit post will be out this weekend.
