I was not there and it is easy for me behind the screen to comment. I don't know the laws in Ohio, or if this victim may be proscribed from having a weapon. That said, what was he thinking? Seems even an untrained person would get to cover, have someone call 911, and prepare mentally for lethal force. I mean if you live where kids with guns walk up in broad daylight to steal a motorbike while you and four friends are present... By definition, that is a 'pay attention to your surroundings' zone. Must have been under the influence of prescription or other substances.
I just hope I never get to the point in life that I am so poorly functioning that a single thug feels he can walk up to me and four friends at noon and steal anything. That kid must have known something about these victims.
