I don’t know, I betting the Marine was just getting warmed up. Too bad he didn’t have a squad with him.
At what point is a 27-year old man permitted to use military force hand to hand combat techniques against a 15-year old boy?
These kids were out for blood. Under such circumstances, could he still be charged with attacking children with possibly lethal response if he’d punched their heads and kicked their kidneys?
Yeah, I'm wondering just how many of those little fockers a combat experienced marine was able to drop hand to hand before the armed citizen risked his ccw to brandish the crowd back.... Me, I'm less likely to draw because of the risk to my ccw and more likely to wade in from behind as a dirty trickster because if you ain't cheating you ain't winning as Clint Smith of Thunder Ranch likes to say. It's amazing how much damage you can inflict when the subject is unaware of the threat because he's interested in his own fight. Knees, arms, even necks can be broken very easily and rapidly. Especially if you blend with the crowd, before they can become aware of your presence. Blend, defend the primary target of the attack (the marine & his lady) and then fade away into the night...
