Book Review: Violence of Mind, Varg Freeborn


Varg Freeborn is a firearms and defensive tactics instructor with a petigree rarley seen in the industry. Varg grew up in the inner city, raised by drug dealers amd users. His childhood is was surrounded with violence, and it eventually led to his own conviction after a self defense use of force. After spending 5 years in prison, Varg was released with a very different perspective on violent criminals and the justice system. He was able to have his record corrected to reflect the evidence shown that his conviction had been, in fact, self defense.

The book, Violence of Mind, focuses on how the high level predator thinks and selects their victims. It also seeks to ahow people how concealment can be misunderstood. His contention is that concealment is not just hiding a gun, but also your intentions amd abilities. His takeaway from the criminal justice aystem is that "you only have the rights that you can afford to pay an attorney to defend".

Freeborns view is unique and will give many a unique view on what violence is really about.
