“Being Suspicious” is OK. Acting Suspicious is Not.

by Ryu

This is a bit of a koan or paradox.

What gets many criminals caught is their obvious precautions. They act guilty. They look around and pivot their heads to look for witnesses. They rush away from the crime scene (which is the natural reaction.)

They look suspicious, which makes them look out of place. The average Murkan, which is the baseline everyone uses, is oblivious. The only people who know what’s going on in the streets is cops and cons.

The mark of a truly proficient criminal is a “cold-blooded” demeanor. Nothing should shake him, nothing should make him panic or lose his cool. More than the acts he performs, it is the resulting panic which gets him caught.

Thus, one has to take precautions and be on guard, without appearing to do so.

That’s why the police haul out that “cold-blooded” thing as if it is bad. Do you think SWAT cries after they shoot someone? No way. They go get pizza and a beer; another bad guy dead.

  1. Innocent bystanders( shitmonkies chimping out doesn’t count) rush away from the crime scene (which is the natural reaction.). Do you think SWAT cries after they shoot someone? No way. If they get blood on mr. swatti they’ll cry moan and groan bitch and complain have a hissy fit and shoot some more

  2. “Thus, one has to take precautions and be on guard, without appearing to do so.”

    “A reasonably prudent person is an individual who uses good judgment or common sense in handling practical matters. The actions of a person exercising common sense in a similar situation are the guide in determining whether an individual’s actions were reasonable.”

    • The PUA is allowed to peacock.

      Serious WNs will develop new abilities, which they must hide and appear not to have. This is a difficult thing.

      So you know that the police are often publishing their SOPs now. That is very good, Akuma. There is gold in those documents.
