    Rowdy teens

    I was driving home with dinner when an older model Dodge Ram hops a curb and almost broadsides me.....I swerved to miss them and luckily no one was in the other lane

    ......I kept on driving glad to not have gotten hit.....but I hear them gaining on me in the other lane....I slow down and their rowdy crew pass.....there where two in the cab and one in the bed giving his best rebel yell.

    Anyhows some guy is chasing them in a sadan and chases them to a corner store where the guy in the back yells for the driver to stop so he can deal with the pursuer (I'm now at a red light watching this go down).
    The guy in the bed jumps out and starts yelling at the pursuer to get out so he could kick his but and that he should be minding his own business.

    So I'm thinking this guy needs some help because these kids are way out of line......I'm armed with a 5 shot 38 special.

    I decided the persuer got himeslf into the situation and he could get himself out of it and when the light turns I drive on.

    I could have helped.

    I could have put my emergency flashers on and walked on over there.

    I saw no weapons so there was no warrant for me to draw mine.

    If I had walked over there I would have been involved in a fight with kids that where looking for trouble..........I fugure fighting is for kids.

    Maybe next time.

    Good call on staying out of it....I might have called the cops, depending on the situation....
    Agreed, the guy got himself into it...Not my responsibility to throw down on his behalf against a bunch of kids....
    If the kids had attacked some random person, who had not been chasing them, I would most likely intervene

    No real good could come of this one. Call 911 and advise them there seems to be a problem at .............!

    Nope...911 is the correct course of action. You are inserting yourself into a situation you know nothing about....nor do you know if there are other weapons present. You are outnumbered and have a means of escape. Use it. You have a firearm to protect yourself...not others...you are not a LEO (regardless if you stayed at a Holiday Inn Express)

    For many, trouble will eventually find you, there is little need to seek it out.

    I think that calling 911, and letting them know you have done so, is the best course of action.

    911 and observe..if it becomes a situation inform from a safe distance that cops are on their way...if it doesnt the cops will sort it out when they arrive...if you inform immediately they are liable to take it somewhere else...keep it where you can observe and let the cops take care of it...

    you dont have any business in that situation and you are taking sides with a fool who is chasing down 3 guys in a truck...hes not playing it very smart and you are considering jumping into that...think about it...

    What were you thinking? You were already on a mission, you had dinner in the front seat and a hungry family to feed.

    Call the cops and let them do their job. If you can see plate numers, other useful details, etc from where you are, without involving yourself, by all means pass that on to the cops.
    Situation might be different if it was some old woman, or someone clearly not responsible for the agression and unable to do anything to help themselves. But even then, intervention should be an absolute last resort.

    My hope would be that it would encourage them to disperse before any injuries or damage.
