  • What are Corbier's Commandos?

    I just arrived in these parts and see that Mod N.A. Corbier lists himself as "Some kind of Commando Leader" and that a few claim to be apart of his group. What is all that about? Also what is a Super Ninja? I feel like a total dork for asking all this and pray I don't get flammed for asking, but I've just never seen things like this at other places. Is it a running joke about something? A secret forum clique within a forum only those people can access? And I can't say I've come across any Ninjas or people dressed like them on any job site I've worked in the last 5 years. Don't tell me there are people who try this?

    I apologize in advance if I've ruffled any feathers with this question, I'd just like to know more about the community at large. So far, aside from what training I do have as a PSO, I have learned quite a bit just from the various threads that I'm reading (back log reading anyhow), and you all seem like "good people" as the old saying goes. I appreciate the diversified backgrounds from which all of you others in the Security Field are working and how interesting it all is to see the differences. Anyhow, if anyone can fill me in on my questions it would be much appreciated.

    welll... it started when a certian poster.. got upset and fummy and posted a threat about how he was leaving because nathan and his so called commandos would edit or delete posts that got out of hand... this certian poster did not like that so he posted a resignation thread.. and blantaly called nathan out as having a super commando squad... i would post more... but just search the fourm for david marchetti
    Its not how we die that counts.....
    Its not how we lived that counts....
    all that matters is how we saved that one life that one time by being in the right place at the right time....

      Thanks for the response. Sounds really childish of someone to do that though. And this person was a PSO? God I hope he didn't whine when using the verbal end of Command Presense. On a forum moderators "should" be policing threads for idiotic stuff that serves no purpose. I have been to too many forums in the past where things get out of hand and stay out of hand, and so far N.A. Corbier's posts and a few others have really made me feel small in compairson to the knowledge I simply don't have in this field. I've been doing a damn good job, (better than most sadly, but not all) the last few years with what knowledge and minimal training we recieved on this end, with utitlizing a few things learned from friends who served in the USAF Security Police/Air Police, but beyond carrying myself with that level of professionality (military bearing and such for Command Presense), security without "true" police powers is a grey area.

      Here in Texas it's just the 38hrs of required LV III training, showing one can be accurate and safe with a firearm and "out you go". I've never agreed with this way of doing things and honestly am stressed out half the time, because it's like me and around 10 others I know of (and sometimes worked with) that try to do things in a rigid no BS manner, usually using the Military/Security Police as a template for how we should look, carry ourselves and use verbal authority. The majority however, just kind of show up to work with an attitude or couldn't care less about absorbing more knowledge to make them better PSOs. On the Security Police stint, It's part of where I (and a few others, strangely enough none of us knew eachother previously) got my understanding on the usage of SPD or Suggestive Psychological Deterrency, where the average person might not understand all the military rigidness of the PSO/SO before them, but when those said Security personnel are polite but direct, always look sharper than the others, and they quickly realize they're there to get the job done with full understanding of whatever is to be had information wise to carry out the job... well, they feel safe. Because we get involved but only to the maximum point that we're allowed of within our operational jurisdiction. The flip side to SPD within the Command Presense side of it is that (something that isn't taught btw) the same thing the good guys see and come to accept and respect, the would be trouble makers second and even triple guess themselves. They don't know what to make of it and generally won't push their luck. The one's that do learn that we're quick to try and de-escalate the situation at hand verbally and with proper respect but that compliancy isn't an option. Regs are for everyone to follow or get written up and/or removed by LEOs, who around my areas, take the harassment of a PSO be it verbal or physical to be no different than someone acting out with them, and they will be removed. But the I see all this other information that just hasn't been accessible to me and I'm like:

      "Man I'm holding it down and representing with respect and authority for others, but some of these guys here have a whole encylopedia worth of information that SHOULD BE known to all in the field."

      Almost so I don't want to really post, because what can I contribute? I don't have any cool stories to tell because I do my job professionally and do what I must; and I'm not the type to make stuff up. Made (2) arrests [if they can be called that] in 5 years and that's it. Everything else was verbally de-escalated to where the parties involved, be them angry housewives or gang members getting stupid... they realize I'm there for everyone and all I care is that whatever the regulations are, are followed by all. And since I get compliant behavior out of 95% of them [at government housing places]... well there can't really be any stories to tell.

      OH YEAH, what's a Super Ninja?

        A 'super ninja' is a nick-name that the above-mentioned poster kinda gained for himself... He would sometimes tell stories about disarming suspects with his bare hands, and silly stuff like that... So he gained the title of super ninja as a joke.. He didn't think it was too funny, but ya know...

            We all start out with a certain amount of inate knowledge based on edcuational knowledge and perhaps a thrist to learn more. With time spent in the trenches, acquired knowledge adds to our store of total knowledge.
            I thank God every day for my initial Air/Security Police education/training upon which I believe lead to the achievement of a successful federal government career. Subsequently in retirement the security consulting arena beckoned.
            Then through the kind intervention of Steve Lasky of ST&D, the sponsor of this forum, I met this crowd. Many of its members are some of the sharpest pencils in the security box. I am amazed at the measureless knowledge demonstrated here.
            If after reading all the various posts, you have a question or comment about a certain aspect of what you've read, do not be afraid to ask a question. You may see a side we all failed to grasp for which we are all be grateful.
            There is no such thing as a stupid question when asked in a sincere manner. To a greater or lesser degree, we all have a ignorance veil. Do not let timidness prevent you from raising that veil.
            Enjoy the day and welcome to the security knowledge "pit."

              Please don't lump me in with that crowd. To hear any number of criminals and/or ex-girlfriends describe me, I am far from that.

                Boy, ain't that the truth! Course, my fiance calls me an a-hole all the time too, so I guess it's not just the ex's, eh?

                Don't worry about having no exciting stories to tell. They'll come with time.
                In the meantime, bask in the knowledge of the users here, and feel free to ask any questions you feel like. There's a veritable fountain of knowledge here, and we're always willing to help out. Welcome to the family!

                    While I "cannot" post in that thread, after all, it would just be bad manners, I did read it, and did note that there are multiple forum users who have pledged their very souls to me in infernal service...

                    I mean, um, something about a commando force?

                    Anyway... I once got to quote Sgt. Hartman, USMC, from Full Metal Jacket on these boards. It was cool.
