#1 The lesson: never fight your captors. Christopher Leggett of Tennessee will be remembered as an idiot who didn't value his own life, instead of a man who refused to surrender his liberty and instead preferred resistance. These are the forbidden tropes, those which must not be spoken.

#2 That's certainly one lesson, gromky. But given the percentage of captives tortured and/or killed by their Muslim kidnappers around the Ummah, how much better is it to surrender immediately instead of attempting escape?

Rantburg was assembled from recycled algorithms in the United States of America. No trees were destroyed in the production of this weblog. We did hurt some, though. Sorry.
