Hon Mike Sonko blames Garissa dead students for ‘waiting’ for their deaths
In a rather bizarre post on social media, Nairobi Senator Mike Sonko has called on University students to be ‘jack bauer’, saying in terrorist attack, distance i the number one enemy.
In wake of â€ª#â€ŽGarissaAttackâ€¬ civilians must change their attitude
When dealing with robbery.. the rule is to cooperate and chances are you’ll leave out of the situation alive though having lost your belongings..
so in a robbery situation lifting your hands up and begging for mercy might work
with Terrorism its different!
there is no amount of begging, pleading, or bribing that will convince the attacker to let you go.
The attacker is there to massacre, and not just you but en-mass with as much casualties and lives lost as possible.
A thief is stealing to better his life alive, so the thief is not ready to die or go to jail. On the other hand a terrorist is ready to die and has come for the mission prepared to lay their life.
147 lives lost at Garissa University by the hand of only 4 gunmen
The picture I have in mind is: the university has many rooms from lecture halls, to hostels, to dining hall and so on.
given it was early in the morning, this means most of the students were in their cubicles..
Imagine being in the 10th cubicle and you hear screams in cubicle 1, shootings and your fellow comrades lose their lives, then the gun man goes to cubicle 2, 3, 4, 5..
Isn’t there any defense mechanism the persons in cubicle 6,7,8,9, 10 could have used to at least take down one of the gun men?
Even by using crude weapons like hot iron box, a stove, a burner, hot water.. such that when the gun mans storms in on the latter cubicle(s) they can indiscriminately attack the gun man, some may lose their life.. some may survive.
Choosing how to die..
When a terrorist attacks with a gun you can choose to die fleeing to nowhere in a four walled room or you can choose to use whatever crude method to stop the gun man.. whether it involves hugging him, throwing water at him, running towards him, knocking him down.. or whatever.. when your attacker has a gun.. distance is your enemy.. the closer you get to a person with a long range shooting gun.. the less useful his weapon is..
its the high time we wake up and raise the little “jack bauer ” within us and as such, we can choose to die fighting or we can flee to nowhere and still get shot anyway with seven bullets lodged on our back.
When caught in a terrorist situation: it’s not time to beg the maggots for mercy. It’s time to attack them and do whatever it takes to stop them!
Lets start telling a different story, as of now the terrorist only threat is the state security.. but if the civilians are equally a threat.. the terrorists will think twice before they attack.
