Yeah, teens do a lot of dumb stuff and hope their parents never find out about. it Can't watch them 24/7 and no matter what you teach them at home, when they get together with some of their moron friends, anything can happen. I've got a 16 yr old, at home who is amazed everytime I catch him doing something dumb. How could I know about it ? Because I was a teenager myself once upon a time. BUT I never pulled any crap like this.
I suspect this was not a game, but a car jacking attempt and they got the surprise of dumb lives when their intended victim turned the table on them. I'm not so sure I would have acted as calmly and wisely as this man did. That gun toter might have been shot as soon as I had a shot at him. Considering he and his gang have halted my car and now one of them is now coming at me with a drawn weapon, or at least what he is presenting to be a weapon ??
What am I to think?? Time to defend myself, these folks obviously mean me harm and appear to have the means and the will to so. I'm not waiting to see how well this guy can shoot before I try to take him out. This stupid kids are VERY lucky indeed.
Wow. What a nightmare. And no one even got hurt!
The victim exhibited a great deal of restraint. I could see shooting the kid with the (airsoft) gun. Maybe even the others.....my head would (I think) be like "...that one's pulled his piece....", and I wouldn't want to just hope the others didn't have guns. I mean, they knew they were doing a carjacking and that one of their number had a gun.....
Man, oh, man, and that would make it oh, so much worse.
