    loud or rude language with an assault on themselves.

    Although sound movies typically announce an attack with a roar, in real life attackers don't need to steel themselves with a lot of noise. Speaking is not a prelude to action. More often, speaking is an alternative to action. Which is why public servants are counseled not to inhibit or interfere.
    Really bad people plan and execute their attacks in secret.
    Of course, being able to hide in plain sight because our agents of government are clueless gives them an advantage.

    If Bush/Cheney weren't malevolent, they were clueless. Certainly Condi was and is clueless.

    We react to strange noises instinctively. The OPD need to be trained in distinguishing significant noises and insignificant ones. OWS is helping with that.
