Did this woman have the right to pull the trigger?
At what point does the need to "retreat" or "stand your ground" take place.
We can all think of situation that are appropriate for either. Sometimes people could retreat, and instead get aggressive. Other times, people have the right to defend themselves, dont, and then become a victim.
So who really gets affected by SYG? We have all seen the stats on it.
Who does it affect? At what point are YOU willing to stand up for yourself? At what point does a situation that you could walk away from change from walking away to realizing that walking away is not going to stop that person?
When do you call the police? Do you have a phone at all?
What do you do if someone has put their hands on you? How do you konw who is who? Who is the MMA guy? And who is the guy with just a big mouth?
Who is the one that makes it out? Whose word counts? Who has the best lawyers? Who gets the money? What is the charge, and who is prosecuting the case?
Lots of questions.
And yet the overhwelming, overarching trait is STILL not being discussed.....
Why are we so FUCKING VIOLENT?
Why do major cities like NYC, Chicago and Detriot turn into such dangerous areas? What is causing this? Now and before? What happened? Did it always look like this? If not, what changed?
