    Stabbing downtown

    I think that the "victim" showed a lot of restrain in this incident by not using his folding knife immediately after the first choke hold. Or, maybe "forgot it was there" (the knife).

    Amazed of the use of the word "victim" in this story. Considfering the location.

    Re read, at first I thought it was a news story.

    I kinda want to know what kind of knife it was. And was that a justifiable use of a knife? I carry a knife as a secondary line of defense (can't reach the gun, out of ammo, etc.) Mainly for utility use. But I've often wondered, when is a knife justifiable? It's not commonly used in self defense like a firearm. Especially against and unarmed BG. Unless disparity of force comes into play.

    I think the victim was more than justified in using his knife in this situation, just to bad he wasn`t able to take the bad guy out.

    I think that a knife is justifiable in the same light as a gun. As both are deadly weapons.
