I think my friend was justified in pulling her gun: very late at night, with 6 aggresive males trying to encircle her and making demands for her to come to them, etc.
The only thing I think she did wrong is that she did not call the cops.
She realizes the risk she took but said that it was late; she had a long day; was very tired and just wanted to go home. She was just glad she didn't have to shoot anyone.
I agree that the safest thing would be to call the cops to make sure they got the information correctly instead of second hand from a clerk or even worse, the bad guys.
Lesson for future reference.
fortiter in re, suaviter in modo (resolutely in action, gently in manner).
I'd drive extra miles to avoid a place like that, I'm sure the local police though are hard at work getting scum like that off the street. ( I hope )
You need to listen to your "Spidey Senses" a little better. You should have never gone into that store. You gang-bang profiled correctly and still got yourself into a mess. Hopefully you'll listen more next time.
Glad you're alright.
Speak softly, and carry a big stick.
