Maybe yell: hey dude chill out. Then grab my OC spray incase he comes my way.
Am I the victim being attacked and legally armed? Or am I a legally armed witness? The aggressor threw the victim to the ground. Also the victim was apologetic about something we didn’t see before the attack. According to what I see in the video, deadly force is not necessary. Get up off the floor and call 911. Once the aggressor walks away the attack has ended.
You know as much as I do. I agree outsource to the cops.
First a few basic Close Quarter Self Defense Skills could have changed the way this occurred, that said. At on point the attacker looked like he may have been choking the guy on the ground, that could very well be lethal. Depending on a lot of things, I would think “HEY MFer, Get Away From That Man”, followed by a roundhouse to the side of the head if he continues to choke the guy… after that, it’s chaos, the fog of war if you will.
These video links don’t seem to work for me anymore. I keep getting a message to type in some unreadable characters. Is this a new Facebook, instagram or Twitter thing?
Use deadly force because unknown guy #1 is holding down unknown guy #2 to yell at him?
0% chance I even consider it.
If I am suppose to be in that situation and answering the question, I need a whole lot more information on what I did and said and what he did and said to even begin
I agree because there aren’t enough details in the scenario. There was a confrontation that we didn’t see before the attack.
There isn’t enough info
and sounds like there is a history between them.
At this point in my life I don’t need another sh-- sandwich
GOOD GUY’S are on the menu for sh–ty things can happen to
you when you intervene in something that’s NOMB!
Everybody gets their ass handed to them every once in a while.
The guy on the ground will live (probably) to be an A-hole another day.
It’s NOT my job to save EVERYBODY.
I need to be there for my Family. I will go down defending MY FAMILY.
Some people have to take care of their own business.
I am NOT the worlds Policeman. Not anymore.
Agreed, however, the guy on the street could see that there was clearly an obvious attacker and an unquestionable victim. SO, with the info presented and a second to decide, what would one do? (I’m asking you this one because I’m certain, with your background, you’ve had to make the one second decision a time or two.)
Unless the other guy has more skills than your “few.”
In that case it ends up like it shows on the video. In the words of a dear friend of mine “You might just kick my a$$, but it will be an event you will not soon forget.”.
Call 911 and be a good witness. Stay on the scene in case things get out of hand. Thats just me. You Know, I have been retired 19 years and still think like an LEO. I guess that is what has kept me alive all these years. But the grace of God comes first.
It didn’t seem like there was enough time for anyone to do anything. It was over before it started. If I was close I could get between them and try to talk sense into the aggressor.
Very adorable of you. Also by doing this you become the object of the angry guy’s ire. Are you capable of handling what will be coming your way?
It is what I have always done. If one truly cares about people they will know what to do.
I agree but you didn’t answer the question. Could you handle the ire coming your way? A man that pissed doesn’t care who he takes his ire out on. The closest I would get is the max effective range of my OC then only with 911 on the phone too.
As William191 says, The attacker didn’t really look like he was one that truly cares about people, at least the person he body slammed…
It was difficult to tell from the video but it seemed he truly cared about his daughter. Why not himself. For the sake of argument; if he winds up in jail he isn’t doing anybody any good.
Except for the guy he attacked or the next guy he decides to attack.
I like my way because it seems more compassionate and sustainable; if what I think happened really did happen.
