Killing over stuff

Good advice:

As a general rule unless its some snot-nosed Ritalin-kid mouthing off, Iím going to assume they do indeed mean to kill me over something as trivial as my wallet.

Once someone presents a weapon and threatens you, there is disparity of force. Act accordingly. Attack brutally and unrelentingly until the threat stops or runs away.

Jay points out that gambling with a thug is a mostly losing proposition.

Putting a price on it.

    I have heard police for YEARS telling people “A DVD Player is not worth a life”. A few years ago, an officer told me that and I told him, loudly and to his face, that he was LYING! I told him that if he truly believed that a DVD Player or a wallet was not worth someone’s life, he would be spreading that message in every high school and jr. high school and youth detention center he could find; rather than lecturing law-abiding citizens who were tired of having their stuff ripped off.

    Well said, Colonel Cooper.

    The immorality of thievery is what justifies killing the thief, not the value of the item being stolen. Unfortunately, that is not the way that the left wants the law to be for their Marxist/warrior/hero/criminals, and they have had an undue influence on the law.

    In a strong arm situation (no weapons) there is a golden second or two where you could effectively pull off a sneak attack. This isn’t true if you are 6’2″ 220 lbs, 30 years old and look like you can handle yourself. But it is true if you are middle to old age and look uncapable (and that is exactly who the bad guy is looking for). It helps if you can see it coming and be able to make a decision ahead of time and even put a little acting into your game. If your assailant is over-confident and you appear under-confident you will have a second or two when they are within easy reach and have not yet knocked you to the ground. My favorite unarmed defense is a stiff open hand into the adams apple with as much speed and strength as you have. My second choice is my 3 1/2 inch pocket knife already open and concealed in my hand with the sharp edge facing away from me. Use it like a punch with a follow through across the face/body. If you do that expect that the police will possibly arrest you but given your choices that may be the best one.
