Sister of man murdered in Love Field area of Dallas says brother was devoted father, son:
The sister of a 46-year-old man found stabbed to death Friday morning outside a Love Field area apartment complex said their family is in shock over the violent loss of the devoted father.
"Martin did not have any enemies," said his sister, Rosemary Segura. "It is still like this is a nightmare. We need to wake up."
Coronado was stabbed multiple times in the chest about 5:40 a.m. at an apartment complex in the 1800 block of West Mockingbird Lane near Harry Hines Boulevard. Coronado was at the complex to pick up his 17-year-old daughter and take her to school.
He had just gotten off of work at Con-way freight, where he was a trucker for the past 18 years, Segura said. As of Friday, police had not ruled out robbery as a possible motive.
Coronado was a big man and his sister said she believes it would have taken more than one person to take her brother down so violently.
"Martin would have fought," she said. "I know he would have. We think it was probably more than one [killer]."
Coronado is married to a niece of Dallas Mayor Pro Tem Pauline Medrano, who is also the chair of the Dallas City Council Public Safety Committee. But Segura said her brother has been separated from the mayor pro tem's niece for six years and they want him remembered for more than his connection to the politically powerful family.
Coronado was a lifelong Dallas resident who loved riding his Harley motorcycle and was dedicated to his daughter and 21-year-old son, Segura said.
In addition to his sister and and children, Coronado is also survived by his mother and five brothers. Funeral arrangements are pending.

Dallas County constable won't release names of those he fired:
Dallas County Constable Derick Evans refuses to release the names of 11 deputies he fired for allegedly falsifying official documents.
Evans fired the deputies after launching his own investigation into deputies in his Precinct 1 office who serve civil court papers.
In June, I requested the names under Texas' open records law.
I recently got a response from the district attorney's office civil division, which handles open records requests for county elected officials.
"Please be advised that the constable has no responsive documents to your request," Michele Tapia, of the DA's Office, wrote in her letter.
A total of 16 deputies were fired after the auditor expanded the investigation to all five constable offices.
Evans is being accused of retaliating against deputies who came forward to report allegations of wrongdoing against him that led to his indictment in December on a number of felony charges.
Precinct 3 Constable Ben Adamcik did supply information about the deputy he fired.
Precinct 2 Constable Michael Gothard provided details about the three deputies he fired.
Precinct 4 Constable Roy Williams said he did not have anything that was responsive to my request.
The county initially tried to withhold the names of those fired, but the Texas Attorney General ruled that it was public information that should be released.

Bank robber apparently not a big Kenny Rogers fan:
Yesterday afternoon, a man -- unmasked, apparently -- robbed a downtown Beaumont bank. It was less than a mile from the police department, so police weren't long in getting there. And if they had left their CSI kit at the station, it probably wouldn't have mattered much. According to the Beaumont Enterprise:
Officers who were dispatched to the scene found a man counting money on a sidewalk a few blocks away with "bulging" pockets.
A gambler, indeed.

WFAA-TV (Channel 8) talked to the man, who asked that his name not be used, about a sale on Craigslist that didn't go as planned.
The robbers showed up at the man's Ovilla house, presumably to buy his MacBook, which he'd listed for sale on the auction website.
It soon became clear that they had no intention of paying for the computer, and they also demanded his iPad, at gunpoint.
Fortunately for the victim, he'd downloaded a "find my iPhone" application that allowed police to track the robbers.
They were arrested on the Dallas North Tollway 45 minutes after the robbery.

Recently, about every day this last week, I have been demonstrating the tools for police, military and civilians. The most amazing thing was the hand gun disarm from a sheriff. I give him an air-soft gun and told to shoot me as soon as I move. I stood with my hands up then made my move, the gun dam near flew out his hands and into mine. He experienced such great pain that his mind just opened his hand! I'm not saying this to act like a big man or bragging but the techniques just plainly work and work very well.
What did I do? I simply controlled the muzzle of the weapon with a cupped hand, and moved the edge of the defender onto his thumb and pressed against the thumb bone and the handle. The handle is a "non compressible surface" and so is the edge of the defender. The thumb bone, on the other hand isn't. So, the pain felt in the thumb is massive and you just want to let go and get away from the pain. He can't turn the weapon back on you as you control where its pointing, all they can do is let go! It happens so fast your mind doesn't have time to get around what is happening. Kind of like when you are getting burned you just instinctively react, well, this is the same thing. Your mind goes into a survival mode and you drop the gun, which I then rotate out of the hand and presto.
Now, I'm not suggesting you run around and weapons disarms for fun but if you have to do one, it's good to know what to do. A self defense weapon is an excellent tool to perform such and save your life or the life of your loved ones. The self defense weapon is also a very good tool to counter home invasion attempts. Also, of course, a self defense weapon is one one personal defence item you have in your mix of self defense tools.
Lastly you should get some capability to do and understand the physical mechanics of weapons disarms. It is better to know how to disarm someone if you really need it rather then becoming a victim or a statistic. Home invasion doesn't usually end to well and you need any chance to fight your way back to safety.

Self defence is not a challenging factor
Most people invest years understanding self defence and I believe the public thinks that this is necessary to become proficient enough to defend yourself. It is the furthest factor from the truth.
Is your self defense simple or extremely difficult to accomplish with out a life time of practice?
Master Peter Brusso says "yes its very easy". Master Peter Brusso has studied martial arts for over 50 years. With the downward spiral of the economy there are more violent attacks, home invasion, and robberies than ever before. And with this huge threat against innocent civilians is it impossible that your self-defense could be created straightforward? The following are the straightforward things you can do to improve your level of self-defense.
Significantly of the murder, violent attacks, rapes, and residence invasions come from the fact that you're not conscious of your surroundings. By becoming aware of exactly where you travel, and observing the individuals around you, you can go a lengthy way to not getting a victim. You want to notice whether any improvised weapons or tools you might be able to use. In addition you need to notice the individuals who are watching you and generating positive you are conscious of their presence. This will go a long way into creating certain you will not be a target.
So when Master Brusso is asked "okay what you do if you are in the wrong place at the correct time?"
He responded with what we already know, and that is take a look at your surroundings and grow to be conscious of your escape options, the folks looking at you, and make certain that they understand you're conscious of who they are. Awareness of your surroundings once again is something you don't get the martial arts school but rather an awareness on the street. If you appear like a person who is really conscious of what is going on probabilities are the bad guys will pick some a lot more unaware person to attack. Awareness can save your life.
So I ask about "well what takes place if they do attack you"?
Master Brusso responded with "well if you determine your options you should run for it now. Nevertheless, if you can't than the attack will take 4 stages just before the criminals are "successful". He continued to explain that the bad guys must close the distance and get close to you and then you are at stage one. If you can frustrate that in any fashion, for example going into a store, that stops the attack right there.
Stage II will then occur which is when they pick a dialogue with you. You can control the dialogue by saying "I'm an off-duty policeman how might aid you". Master Brusso explains that Japan's greatest swordsman (Musashi) once said "paint the picture you want your opponent to see". It was true then, and it is accurate now.
I continued to query Master Brusso about the attack sequence. Once they decide to grab you there are some really simple issues you can do, the martial artist can teach you to escape from the grab or cause some great damage, which will enable you to get away. They're also excellent DVDs exactly where you can discover this sort of training in the comfort of your own house. There will be links at the bottom of this press release to show you the sorts of points that a person can discover, swiftly, easily, and affordably.
There are a quantity of private self-defense weapons that you can obtain from the Web and get proficient enough to make use of in a violent attack. These tools are straightforward and very inexpensely effective. These private defense weapons, or self-defense weapons can also be employed in a residence invasion or residence robbery.
So in summary, in hard times like this, with the economy going down and down, and violent crime going up and up, your self-defense can be easier than you believe. By following easy steps, procedures, and a small bit of training you can have the confidence to defend yourself and your loved ones. So you can comprehend that your personal self protection is actually a mixture of your mind, your confidence, your ability to dialogue with the bad guys, and a little bit of training.

I wanted to share this article with the defender group. I posted a similar article over on the home self defence blog. But thought all of you might find this a good read too..
Second, with your “rules of engagement” defined, you next have to look at your house self protection as a layered methodology. What I'm pointing out here is that you must choose implements of self defense that span across the range of attack. Specifically, you should have some long distance kit, medium range implements of self defense, and up close range tools in your mix of tools.
The third thing you should do is form a plan of attack, so to speak. Run by means of numerous scenarios of your response to the criminals. By working with these scenarios you are able to location your kit where you can access them. This will give you a fighting opportunity.
It's very essential to contemplate your tools and then also the many scenarios that go along with house self defense. That is, if the home invasion morons show up at the door and activate the doorbell, what will you do? Or if they break through the back door and enter into your residence, what are you going to do? Where will you be, in the living room? So, you see it is extremely essential to think about, not only the weapons for your self protection, but also the different scenarios of a achievable home invasion or house robbery. I would commence to think about each scenario and figure out what gear you have within ones own reach. If you know about improvised weapons at all, you will rapidly notice that several household items can function, really properly, as a self defense tool. If you study pressure points then you can also use widespread residence items to exploit these pressure points and thus stopping or at least, make the home invasion morons contemplate twice about attacking you or your loved ones.
In closing, it’s each essential to contemplate your self defense weapons by stand off range and have a great layered mix of them in your residence self defense plan. Also, by exploring your different home invasion scenarios you can best determine where you may spot your tools and have a strategy to utilize them. Get a self defense weapon as a minimum... one for every room so you are always close to it!

Man fires bottle rocket at police in southeast Dallas apartment complex: "
A man shot a bottle rocket at a Dallas police squad car Monday night, hitting an officer who was trying to break up an illegal fireworks celebration at a southeast Dallas apartment complex.
Officers arrived at the Creekside Villas in the 300 block of North Jim Miller Road around 9:30 p.m. after receiving a tip from a neighboring complex that fireworks were being shot off to celebrate Independence Day.
Police found a crowd of about 100 people in the complex's southern portion. When several people began shooting fireworks into the air, officers tried to disperse the group by driving toward them.
Then an unidentified man fired a bottle rocket at a squad car, hitting an officer in the arm, police said.
Police briefly chased the man on foot before losing sight of him. By that time, the crowd had broken up, so officers were unable to take additional action.
The officer didn't need medical attention, police said.--Tom Benning / Reporter"

We have a new defender out! I was always looking for a smaller defender, credit card size, and on of our fans came up with one, independently. We call it the RP defender, after the inventor or mashup artist, Robert Pearson. He send me a picture of one, and I sent it to Jon Jenkins Sensei... and he prototyped several up for examination. He, I liked it. So I moved it forward into production will all the rights and presto, we have a new pocket size defender. It's selling well too I might add. So, keep this a quick post, go take a look and let me know what you think. I do believe it will be great for womens self defense, personal self defense, personal safety, and martial arts.
