How do i handle the threat of an upcoming attack?
Here is the situation. A man who works for/represents a group of weathy men here in town came to me night before last to tell me "If I don't drop my problem with his employers I'm going to get hurt" Now I'm not one to cause problems, but I'm also not the kind of guy who will stay silent when I see someone I care for being mistreated. What has happened is I've seen these men being horribly inappropriate several times with someone I care for, so I step up and shut these guys down. I've never threatened them nor even taken a posture like I planned to be violent. As is usually the case with bullies, if someone speaks up they generally will back down. But now they have either paid or convinced some people to come after me. I don't have anything I can go to the police with and I don't want to shoot a couple of guys just because they are trying to throw me a beat-down. I also know that a few guys attacking me with just their fists could easily result in my death. Any suggestions?
