This situation is based off of a video I saw on Active Self Protection. I won’t post it here since it would probably get taken down due to language.
Situation: you’re on a busy street, walking with another person. There’s a crowd of people slinging curses at a lone man, african American. As you watch you can see this man is not quite right, whether it’s drugs or alcohol you’re not sure. He’s taunting the crowd as he walks and if someone who seems timid gets within arms reach he will hit them, hard. You see it happen to two separate people. You also realize that the nearest exit yo get off this street has become blocked by a crowd of onlookers. As they draw closer the man has now hit two women and one man.
What do you do?
