We had a kid killed this way--over the fence
We had a kid killed this way about 3 weeks ago. He ran into a neighbor's yard to escape attackers and got trapped between a fence and the attackers. Sometimes it will work, sometimes it won't.

I still think this fellow's luck just ran out except that he survived somehow.

and somehow its worse than the situation he was in when he decided to run?...if it was his only choice he had to take the chance...the threat exists....you can stay and endure or run and try to outdistance or take away interest...i doubt staying would have changed the outcome....

If it were me, the second I saw the knife in his hand I would have made a jab with my knife to his neck as fast as I could doing by best not to telegraph... If I landed it, the BG is on the ground bleeding out. Then I run, call 911 when I can doing my best to hide from his buddies. Question is will they stay back to tend to their buddy, or will they say screw him and chase you? In lots of cases, knives can do more damage than a gun. I wouldn't take my chances to see if he'll just take my wallet and leave...
It's better to have a gun and not need it, than to need a gun and not have it.
