Gas Station Beat Down

To preface this, I am not a person who shares links and stories online.
I figure most of you can do that on your own and I’m not a news aggregate.

But, in this case I feel it’s important to share the video that is in the Foxnews link below.

As part of my Defensive Shooting Fundamentals course I make the student absolutely aware that the gas station is the modern day watering hole. This is where the gazelle comes for water and the lion waits to pounce.

The woman in the video appears to be living in Condition White. Totally unaware of her surroundings. If after she started pumping, backed up from here car about 6-8 feet and watched her surroundings in Condition Yellow she 100% could have avoided this. “Stop! Don’t Come Any Closer!” She could have retreated, taken cover, or found another way to stop the threat.

This will never happen to you if you live in Condition Yellow at every gas station.

Gas stations are a good location for an attack because if you are gassing up your vehicle you are not paying attention. I have been gassing up my vehicle and what I do is look around and check my surroundings. I put the nozzle pin on lock so I don’t have to watch or keep my hand on it. I wish that woman would have been armed because that was a vicious attack. That man was three times her size and could’ve killed her. Even though this man wasn’t armed she would have had the right to defend herself with a firearm if she had it. The fear of being beaten to death or knocked unconscious and have your weapon taken from you becomes very real in this situation.
Shame on those people there that didn’t even help. Another case of mental illness unfolded.
I mean that man was so out of shape those guys could’ve pounced on him and held him until law enforcement arrived. They just let him climb into his car and leave. What’s the world coming to. VERY SAD.

I don’t need to tell you this, but it seems like Nobody wants to help a person in trouble anymore. Your right @Johnnyq60 it’s VERY SAD.

But you know why… Don’t you?
Every witness who wants to help, needs to have a good attorney or a lot of money…or be crazy enough (like me) to don’t think about it and just help.

Sounds like me @Jerzy I’m still crazy enough to jump in and help. Runs in the family I guess. :+1: :us: :us:

Unprovoked assaults are commonplace in this society, now finding itself trying to function in a climate of violence. For some reason, these assaults have targeted ASIANS.

It’s unfortunate that she was never exposed to any situational awareness training whatsoever. I am one of the lucky ones who had a father who was wise to the ways of the world & instilled these skills in me at a young age. 24 years of military service & three years in law enforcement furthered my training and self defense skills. I still read constantly and train to stay sharp. i have passed down this way of living to my sons and daughters. There are people who just do not know because they have never been shown how to do any of these things. My heart goes out to this lady but it should be a wake up call to start living as an informed individual and put in the work and effort to learn how to not be a victim waiting for a place to happen. I can’t hold her accountable for ignorance but moving forward, she must take responsiblilty for her own safety and the safety of her loved ones

My daughter is naturally clueless. I try, along with my sons, go teach her. It’s like she’s ADHD. She still has time. I’m forcing her through drivers education. She doesn’t want to drive. She’d be the first to die in a horror flick, just like her mother. :flushed::rofl:
