I am watching a show on MSNBC as I worked out tonight about the abduction of a 17 year old girl in Nebraska named Ann Sluti. A career criminal, who was 6 foot one and 200 pounds, grabbed her from a mall parking lot while she was walking to her car. Several people witnessed the abduction and called police with good descriptions of the abductor and the vehicle but, he still gets away. She was liberated several days later, alive but abused.
Now to the scenario. You are in a mall parking lot, or walking on your street and you witness a similar situation. A woman / girl is being dragged toward a car by a large man. The female is screaming and yelling that she does not know who this guy is and that she is being kidnapped.
What do you do. Just be a good witness or do you draw and try to stop the scum bag? What does the la of your state allow you to do?
Can you overcome the urge to draw and double tap this scum before he makes good his getaway with the young girl?
Would your actions be different if you knew the female being abducted? Or if it was your own daughter?
I know that if it was my daughter the scum would get 2 165 grain golden sabers to the torso as fast as I could pull the trigger. If it was not my daughter, I am not 100% sure what I would do to be honest.
All I know is this: if my daughter was being abducted and I was not there to stop it but one or two of you guys were there. I would want you to intervene with deadly force if necessary to save her. And I'm sure that thought would go through my mind if I witnessed someone else's daughter being abducted in front of me.
Your thoughts please.
