A letter from the Spain branch was sent to elders informing them about what to do if anyone is assaulted on the carts/trolleys during public witnessing.
The letter is dated 10th July 2019 and includes a sheet with instructions that must be included with each cart. This means that we now have a legitimate document to be able to reason with active JWs.
The document is entitled "What to do in the case of aggression during public witnessing activity?"
First point it mentions is to call the police IMMEDIATELY, not the branch, hence highlighting that Watchtower value preaching carts more than the lives of abused children (where the Bethel branch must be called first).
But the real point of this post is this: Look at point 3. "If you file a complaint at the police station, what should you say?" Amongst other things, it clearly states that "carts must be reported as the property of the brothers involved in this incident" and they've even underlined it. They stress that JWs "should not say that the carts are the property of the religious denomination or congregation."
With me so far? Maybe you don't see anything wrong with this so let me refer you to the Elder's manual (Shepherd ver 2019, Chapter 23, point 9: Public Witnessing Equipment).
There it clearly states that "The equipment will remain the property of the congregation."
So why are Watchtower clearly asking their members to lie to the police in an official report? Go back to point 3 in the instructions to get the answer:
"The police will probably ask who owns them in order to facilitate the option of asking for compensation." Ah good old money... at the root of most things that motivates Watchtower.
So next time you see the JWs on the carts, ask them if their conscience permits them to lie to the police, not for "theocratic warfare" but for monetary compensation? What would Jesus think about that?

I'm just a cart Made up of bits and pieces A frame, a handle and some wheels But I'm a cart That helps to give a witness (spoken) What is that like? (sung) Let me tell you how it feels!
If you could see What I see, If you could visit all the places that I go. If you could see the people there And get a glimpse of all the faces that I get to know.
If you could hear What I hear, When they see things they've never had a chance to see. That's when you'll see How it can be That forever they'll remember me!
I've got wheels I've got racks I've got books and I've got tracts. I take the Kingdom message everywhere!
When the crowds Pass me by I'm designed to catch their eye. Wherever people gather count on me 'cause I'll be there!
If you could do What I do You'd know the happiness that always fills my heart!
What a feeling To go wheeling I'm so glad to be a Public Witness Cart!
