So I live in a rough neighborhood. As a result I have the police on speed dial. I have accepted this as part of life living in New Orleans. I have a concealed carry license and carry everywhere except for school. I hopefully will be capable of carry at school one day with recent proposed legislation. House committee says OK to guns on campus - Louisiana Politics | State Legislature News - NOLA.com I was walking down the street and I look to my right because I hear commotion. Across the street is a man in a car who was being pulled out of his vehicle while the car is moving. Next thing you know four guys have this guy out of his car. The car is still in drive and almost rolls over him and comes to rest hitting another car on the street. They are kicking and punching him while he is down on the ground. So first instinct is call the police. I do and explain where I am and what is going on. The police officer responds with one of the most unbelievable statements ever "What do you want me to do about it?" I don't know if this is because I am a calm guy who doesn't get flustered and never has little to no urgency in his voice. I respond with how about you send someone out here to help this guy. I am at the point extremely angry and instead of asking for his name and badge number because he should have been reported I restate the intersection and hang up the phone. My wife is hiding behind my vehicle and I am just about to head over there and go shoot these idiots when the guy gets up crawls to his car while being berated with kicks and punches gets in and speeds off bouncing off another 2 vehicles in the street. I happen to be in school with a retired cop who I ran the scenario by him and he said he would have shot a round as a warning and shot them next. He also said that is NOLA PD for you. I have always been taught that if you take your gun out and confront someone you should be shooting them. Don't give them the opportunity to shoot you first. I didn't see anyone with a weapon. I was afraid for the guys life. I was told that is justification in itself to defend him. Thank God I didn't have to shoot anyone and the situation resolved itself. I just thought I would run that by everyone to see what they thought the appropriate response would be.
