Police Science and Invincible Defense Technology
With: David Leffler, Ph.D.
"...One of the most common reports was an increase in their shooting scores. Others reported feeling more aware, especially in life-threatening situations. This is important because in an effort to protect and save lives, law enforcement officers may sometimes resort to using deadly force.
For example, there was a story of an officer and his partner who were called to a situation in a very dangerous part of New York City. Walking in an alley, they were ambushed. A shot rang out, and his partner fell wounded to the ground. This officer drew his revolver and quickly shot five assassins, killing four and disabling the fifth. He later reported if it were not for his regular TM practice, he would have been killed. Despite the overwhelming odds against him, the policeman said he was able to maintain his composure under fire. He skillfully and accurately shot his weapon during this dangerous and highly stressful situation. (The revolvers used by New York area police at that time could only fire six rounds, so the situation was much more critical than it would be in modern times where weapons can fire fifteen or more rounds.)..."

Transcendental Meditation in Criminal Rehabilitation and Crime Prevention -- Transcendental Meditation, the principle component of Invincible Defense Technology, was the subject of an issue of the Journal of Offender Rehabilitation in 2003. There are several studies in this peer-reviewed journal related to crime and rehabilitation involving Invincible Defense Technology. One landmark study entitled "Preventing Terrorism and International Conflict: Effects of Large Assemblies of Participants in the Transcendental Meditation and TM-Sidhi Programs" shows a 72% reduction in deaths due to international terrorism (p<.025) when the proper threshold of people practicing Invincible Defence Technology was reached.
