In a situation like this I would NOT want to escalate but something had to be done and I'm not a physical guy. I can yell and--as a teacher--I'm much more authoritative than my physique would let on. A kick to the head is deadly force on the part of the attackers against this victim and a good samaritan would have the right to use deadly force to end the incident. At least in my state.

The liberal media would roast me, but if I dotted my i's and crossed my t's, I think I would be safe from prosecution. Som states even hold the good samaritan immune from repercussions legally if acting in good faith.

I would announce myself first, though. What to yell? Where to stand?

WOC, we all have to make those choices. And I'm glad I can tell in your tone that you are unapologetic about your readiness vis a vis carrying. I can tell you know justice, though, so you really should consider it more strongly.

And perhaps an SP101 to match your GP100? Maybe a 1-7/8" barrel in a holster is in your future?

I have not seen the vid because I have download issues. Therefor it's not easy to say what I would do. In the past I have intervened in situations like this. Sometimes I have regretted it. If life was easy, no one would ever die.

there black... tribal is what they do, I was actually talking to my brother in law he pointed out that most people have actaully gotten to a tribe mentality, gangs and what not but some people have taken so far that they have gotten 40% less brain activity when there angry I know it doesen't seem like that much but humans only use about 60% of there brain on average.

Me personally I would have blind sided them, I'm not a small guy by any means. I think fights are great to solve some problems, but they should at least be fare.

no offense, but a lot of younger african american males and females have this type of mental attitude.

I have a bit of a history of sticking my nose in. I would most likely put myself in between the "woman" and the attackers and wait for the police. Nothing drawn unless they decide to get really stupid with me.

I would step in and if I needed to would draw. In my state it is legal to use lethal force to protect another person.

Thank you for your vote of confidence. In all reality, I live in Illinois and I can't CC anyway. That decision has been made for me by my government.
I'm not sure I'm ready to kill another human being and if I think I'll hesitate then I think I'm not ready to carry yet.

I do not think he meant it as an insult. Its a sad fact, but still a fact, that younger minorities do commit more crimes then whites. I am not racist at all but how many videos do you see of two white girls beating a black girl?

Table 43 - Crime in the United States 2009
in 2009 there were 10,690,561 arrests made 3,027,153 or 28% of those arrests are classified as black. According to the 2010 census 12.3% of the population is classified as blacks.

Once again I am not racist and not trying to insult African Americans but the facts are clear.
