Remaining Silent as a Defensive Tactic?
We were talkiing about eyeballing in one of the threads here, and just now were talking elsewhere about the guy who came out and saw a BG in the owner's vehicle and when the GG told him time and again to get out of it, the BG did not even look around but kept his back to GG and this unnerved the GG to the point where he shot BG in the buttocks. Was not charged.
I was thinking of what would happen if GG adopted same tactic as BG in that scenario in Memphis.
Criminal types are used to posturing and going back and forth verbally with their intended victims.
What if a GG is approached by a BG and the GG just stares back at BG without a word. Nothing. And the BG is still talking and talking the typical BG BS.
Do you think this would be unnerving to the BG?
Just curious as to what we all think about this, as a tactic.
Has anyone ever done this in a real life situation. There is no doubt that it is very unnerving for the person on the other end to get no reaction from you.
I think they would wonder if you are crazy, and perhaps change their mind about you. They are not used to people not saying one word to them. It probably never happened to them before.
But I don't know if it would be effective. What do you folks think?
