you never get involved in domestic fights.
this guy had really no idea exactly what was going on. he isn’t a police officer and has no immunity if someone lies to him or he decides to make a decision based on really knowing nothing about the situation.
assumptions will get you thrown in jail for felony assault and possibly manslaughter or murder-2.
I think you are kidding.
Unless he was killing his girlfriend, and needed to be shot, mind your own business or call the police.
At the time, was living in an apartment with girlfriend. Late in the evening, heard one heck of a ruckus from what seemed down in the parking lot (we were 2nd floor). We looked out....saw this car up on the main street between two medians....quite the quarrel going on. He was getting physical (obviously two blacks). I wasn’t going to let that pass. I walked down.....approached the car. Remember, this was the dead of night. I approached the driver side of the car and inquired of the young black lady (who was in the driver’s seat) if she was ok. That is all I wanted to know, period.....not looking for a fight.
Let’s just say home boy called me everything but white from the passenger seat....started to get out of the car to “kick my white ass”....and his girlfriend had the presence of mind to gun the car and pull him back in as she sped away to avoid what she knew was going to get ugly. I wasn’t packing......then; my girlfriend was. Know that what brought me out wasn’t the noise of her/him alone....he was getting physical. I don’t stand by and let that happen, no matter what.
Four cop cars arrived (girlfriend called 911). I told them what happened. They thanked me, scattered to the four winds to find this black a**hole quicker than you can say “...fresh batch of Dunkin’ Donuts on the shelf!”. God bless ‘em.
Got my ass chewed by girlfriend afterward. She knew she would cover my six, with a Glock 23 .40 cal....and was on her way when they sped off.
Emotions run high in lover’s quarrels, so you always have to be very, very careful. I just wanted to ensure the young lady was ok......that’s all. No hero, etc......but no Kitty Genovese in my neighborhood.
Proverbs 26:17 Like one who takes a dog by the ears Is he who passes by and meddles with strife not belonging to him.
never shot a guy roughing up a woman. did give one a pretty good dose of pepper spray though. he was too big for me to tangle with.
