Happy Ending
Shimmer1

Posted on 09/11/2011 8:06:29 AM PDT by Shimmer1

A close friend of mine faced an incident on Friday, in Macon, GA. At a gas station, a young black man accosted my friend (former Marine sniper and recon) with a knife and demanded his wallet. He'd been robbed before and didn't shoot the robber, this time he didn't have his weapon, but still declined to turn over his wallet. The man said he'd cut him if he didn't turn it over, and Greg told him to go for it. The man swung the knife and it got caught up in Greg's shirt tail. Greg punched the guy in the throat, broke his arm, separated his shoulder, face lacerations...and sent him to the hospital.

Agreed, a most happy ending. Not familiar with GA law to a great degree, but would think if your friend had his weapon, he would have been justified in shooting the perp.

No complications. The police arrived, a witness told them what happened (Greg didn’t remember the fight after he started whaling on the guy, he just went full auto on him) and they took care of everything without hassling him about it.
;D

My guess is he will lose the civil suit when the perp sues him.

This reminded me of an apropos comment given by a serious karate expert, after just wailing on some drunk meatball who had tried to sexually assault the karate expert’s girlfriend, outside a bar.

Multiple broken bones, etc., curled up in a fetal position and groaning, the karateka looked down at him and said, “Oh, I bet you got you some ouchy places, huh?”

Added "banglist" to your keywords, for the benefit of all the law and order/gun rights/self-defense types here on the forum.

Good job by your friend!

My favorite karate story is the time my sensei’s wife, a 105-lb wisp of a woman but a 3rd-dan black belt, was accosted as she was putting her groceries in the car. Within a couple of seconds after grabbing her from behind, he had a fractured larynx, a hyperextended knee, and was hospitalized for a week and crippled for life.

Am familiar with GA law and when accosted on the street with a knife you can feel free to fire away with great abandonment. If you have a CCL.

I knew one like that. Amazingly strong for her size, and fists and feet like bullets. She joined the USMC as an officer, and was just running circles around those guys. She later complained that they didn’t work her hard enough, and their food was too rich, so she was gaining weight.

Obviously, the perp had never seen this basic USMC instructional. The thug got off lucky.

Hit in the throat? I’m surprised that did not kill the guy.
