    Some people are thugs. As a practicing criminal defense attorney, I sometimes get to meet and talk with thugs.[1] Most of the thugs I represent know they are thugs, and some of them are even proud to be thugs. Most people don’t think of themselves as “thugs.” This is because most thugs don’t realize they are thugs. As with most things, the first step to change is an acknowledgment of the facts. I encourage you to honestly consider whether you are truly a thug.

    All human interactions can be boiled down and assigned to one of two possible categories, “voluntary” or “coercive.” The “voluntary” interaction category includes things like charitable acts, all contractual relations, and most interactions among friends. A truly “voluntary” interaction is one that is knowingly entered into by competent and consenting adults. The “coercive” interaction category includes things like theft, assault, fraud, and other old fashioned concepts of criminal activity. The hallmark of this category is the concept of one person forcing his or her will upon another..

    Thuggee or tuggee (Hindi: Nepali ठग्गी ṭhaggī; Urdu: ٹھگ‎; Sanskrit: sthaga; Marathi: ठक; Sindhi: ٺوڳي، ٺڳ‎; Kannada: ಠಕ್ಕ thakka) refers to the acts of Thugs, an organised gang of professional robbers and murderers. Thugs travelled in groups across the Indian sub-continent for six hundred years.
    Although the Thugs traced their origin to seven Muslim tribes, Hindus appear to have been associated with them at an early period. The earliest authenticated mention of thugs appears in Ziyā-ud-Dīn Baranī's History of Fīrūz Shāh, dated around 1356.
    Thuggee was a secret cult whose members, both Muslims and Hindus, worshipped Kali, the goddess of destruction. They operated as gangs of highway robbers, tricking and later strangling their victims.

    I duuno - is this Kali dude part of KALIfornia when all the thugs seem to live???

    Nah - I don't belong to any cult or that.

    Only Issue with this is a Muslim does not worship Kali by definition....

    I think that some people have a remarkable capacity for self deception....from ordinary bully yokels, to presidents, kings and queens.

    Is this supposed to be some sort of sick joke? Why isn't that a Glock? You know, like when Snoop Doggy Dog came to town many moons ago and popped off a few down town "for a joke"? Of course he held his like that so none of his "white" fans were hurt, ha-ha, what a joker he is.

    Well, I got the necklace (the one depicted is less the UDT Pendent) & I might sport the Jolly Rodgers Ink. I've been considering a 5 shot .44 Mag L-Frame S&W Revolver. I've been known to wear camo to blend in with the darkness, Am I Turning THUG????

    Does this mean I need to get a gold grill? LOL

    Old Marine Corps fitness report had a mark called force.

    Best way I heard it defined was "The ability to get a bunch of strangers to do what you tell them and make them feel it was their idea."

    Even if men you'd never met called you Sir when you were walking to the showers in a towel you might still lack this kind of force. It had nothing to do with physical threats or coercion.

    Thuggery won't lead men far. Force will.
