    Or it could of been because he was pissed that the same guy he shew'd off before dinner is back as I'm about to eat. Etc.

    Least it didn't turn violent and nobody was harmed. I personally wouldnt of involved myself, in any way, unless the guy got violent.?

    Now that's how RESPONSIBLE carrying citizens handle uncomfortable situations.

    Well played, I hope others reading this will follow your directive of how to handle something like that, by doing the right thing, and not react inappropriately.

    When carrying we all need to act responsibly, think before we overreact, and don't think that just because we're armed and licensed we can use it at our discretion.

    You saw a situation, assessed it as a possible issue that could turn bad, you were going to call 911 because at this point YOU DID NOT NEED to interpose...yet, but saw a LEO, made him aware of what was going on, and let HIM do his job!!

    Again.....Kudos to you

    Thats the best way to handle it,any other way if it escalates you will look like you provoked it,only way I would have interjected myself was if he actually assaulted a female,then it's on

    I don't mean to argue. But, this was an "emergency" situation!

    This pan-handler was obviously aggressive, belligerent and most likely under the influence. He was was trying to intimidate & menace the public. This situation could have went REAL bad; real FAST and the officer new that.

    Who's to say the next step from this aggressive & belligerent man may have been "pulling" a knife or some other weapon? This man was most likely committing the crime of menacing & simple assault; (if the officer chose to pursue it). No, this situation could have turned deadly in a skinny minute! (Kudos to the officer for recognizing the danger & acting promptly.)

    BTW;
    The officer most likely knew who the guy was; he just needed you to ID him so he could act to remove him.

    Several months ago in downtown Cincinnati a guy like this attacked a woman at a bus stop stabbing her over 20 times until subdued by other people waiting for the bus. I suspect the police are hyper sensitive to this type of behavior after that. The mayor is really pushing to make downtown an attractive destination so I also suspect the directive is to keep these kinds of people under control.

    Well handled.

    I'm more surprised by the fact an LEO was on scene over how quickly he repsonded.

    Ya done good, and handled it like a pro
    A real man loves his wife, and places his family as the most important thing in life. Nothing has brought me more peace and content in life than simply being a good husband and father.

    Textbook! A perfect response using the proper tools near to hand.... A great example of avoidance deterrence and good citizenship all in one...

    Kudos to you and the LEO.
