Know Your Adversary

found on Ted Rall's blog

It's always important to know who your adversaries are and what their capabilities are so that you can formulate strategies for dealing with them.

I imagine there are those who think it's a bad idea to think of the police as adversaries, but I also imagine those people are privileged in some manner.

(And yes, I know that the Sun Tsu quote is normally "Know your enemy" but I'm not comfortable painting police with that particular brush because the consequences of that militaristic frame of reference are particularly undesirable.)
