similar circumstance, yes.

that is why use of force training is CRITICAL. a good shoot is a good shoot. its that oh so short span of time you have to determine what the situation is and determine if its a good shoot or not. the liberal democratic pro-crime DA's have months and months and months to second guess and monday morning QB your actions in order to determine what outcome he needs to get the most votes in the next election. you have prolly less than a second or two to make the same decision...

One other thing. You have no more duty to save anyone than the police do. Police have absolutely zero duty to save or rescue anyone. The reason they do so is that the types of people who are inclined to save folks tend to find work as police fire emt etc.

I understand well the way so many people, including LEO's, feel about stopping to help. One day I was driving in the east end of Indianapolis, and saw 2 cars stopped beside the curb of a busy street near a shopping mall. There was a woman flat on her back on the ground and some low-life jerk punching and kicking her. I stopped and got out of my car, and as I was running up to them, he turned and yelled, "She's my wi---". Before he finished the word "wife" I cold-cocked him and laid him out. Then a lady who was a friend of the "wife" helped her get into her car and left to take the battered lady to a hospital. The man's friend got him into a car and they left. There was a big crowd, probably over a hundred people standing and watching the whole thing, and nobody made any effort to help her. Soon a couple of county mounties showed up. When they questioned me about it and I told them what happened, they proceeded to laugh it up and ridicule me for being so stupid as to get involved. They said I could have been shot, etc, etc. So I was duly punished for doing what I thought was my duty. If I came upon the same situation today I'd still do the same thing, but expect to be appropriately punished for doing it.

WOW....our society continues to spiral downward while each new generation fuels it. Can't understand the morals and ethics (or lack) of humans these days.

What is really sad is last year i was walking through my highschool after class and saw some guy smacking his "gf" for an unknown reason.

I asked him to leave the lady alone, he then decided he was going to slap around this freshy who dared to talk to a senior.

I hit him once in the solar plexus and he crumpled. I absolutely hate that this problem has spread to our schools. If i ever see it again i might do more than i did.

Thank you btw.

i appreciate that you had the balls to step up and stop it.

Giving credit where credit is due! This was TEXAS! God Bless Texas. If the S ever hits the fan and I need to leave the mountains! I will be on my way to Texas! Where citizens are not afraid to stand up to anyone including the present Government.
I also seen where Sheriff Joe Arpaio has been cleared of most all of the charges to this point. "That is Great!" And American with some ba--s! Kind of a rarity these days!
