I'll call 911 after the immediate threat is over . Wasting a couple minutes to call 911 could have caused that man his life. You might yell to neighbors to call 911 while you shoot the BG's. Think about what you want neighbors to do if 3 guys are tap dancing on your head as it can happen to any of us. I can hear it know, NO I'll wait for the cops , don't shoot the damd bad guys !!

Many states also do not allow any law suits in a justified shooting from any family members.

I live in a small neighborhood that everyone is a hunter/gun person and anyone that does not belong here and will confront a stranger in a friendly manner but will be armed . All good .

Some 30 years ago I had to take a 4 foot sands level after 3 surf bumbs that were giving a old man crap as he tried walked away from them. Surprising how quickly they were suddenly all so sorry and gona go back to the beach.

If no one does anything the BG's will take over.

Thanks Hardluck. As many have discovered, most of these thugs are cowards who have to travel in packs. When opposed by even similar force, they generally back down pretty quickly.

Sheep, Wolves and Sheepdogs. Wolves travel in packs. They rarely attack sheepdogs unless they have vastly superior numbers. Keep your sheep dog mentality and the wilves are kept at bay.

Default Robocop...

Thank you for your service and being "on the job"...I don't envy the job of a LEO ..I am sure you don't always see the best side of people...But I am grateful for what you do...

Thanks. I don't like the NYPD "on the job" thing. To me, it is a calling, not a job. People ask me if I like working where I do. My reply is that I would be a fool to do it for 30 years if I did not like it.

The guy was right for intervening. In some places it could take 45 minutes for an officer to arrive on the scene. In such a case, all there would be left to do would be to call the coroner and write up a report. That wouldn't have done the old man much good.

Law enforcement and military . To jobs that if you make it for a couple years , get in some tight spots and can sleep with how you reacted you had better plan on retiring there or you probably wasted a number years of your life. . When I left Florida for NC 17 years ago I sold my house to my riding buddy , a city leo then. He retired with the city after 28 years and then went to work as a community serve officer and should have another 15 years in . Now he is not jumping into as many tight spot any more but he loves his job . I will bet they will have to retired him when he needs a walker to get to his car or can't see the targets to qualify . Meanwhile the BGs are still out there . Officers and good guys stay smart ,stay safe.
