I am The Shield.
You see me and see that I am an easier target than most. Why then do I carry no shield?
I am The Shield. I Shield the poor, the weak, the oppressed. You may aim your vicious cruel blows at the unfortunate but you shall not strike your target, you shall instead strike The Shield. You will try to strike again and you shall find your weapon sundered upon The Shield.
Then, you will find that The Shield will sunder you.
Run then, you torturers and cruel punishers. Run, you oppressing lawmakers and lawbreakers. Run, lest the wickedness you wield be splintered by The Shield.
