Most of the damage was when he was on the ground and the kids stomped him. Four days in hospital, enough internal injuries that they had to put a tube in his stomach to drain the blood.
This scenario is the one that troubles me the most. Plenty of potential and desire to do serious bodily harm or kill, but at what point is the line crossed to make deadly force justifiable.
EDC had it right.... this guy was 'out cold' when the first hit was delivered. Even if the victim was armed it'd done him no good. I'd like to think my SA would be a little more 'fine-tuned' to my enviroment as to not allow a pack of bored, wild animilistic teens get the jump on me..........
This 'kinda shifts' my line of 'what-if' thinking as to what would I do if a saw a situation like this unfold within my LOS?
Hope the victim recovers fully AND that real justice is served to these animial-kid-thugs.

Well before I was in such a condition to need four days in the hospital.

Who knows if it would have worked, had I even seen it coming, but I carry a couple other things (besides a handgun) for self-defense. Kimber pepper blaster and one nasty baton/blade combo on a chain. Disparity of force, IMO, was there. But as has already been stated, the media would kill you on shooting innocent teens who were just turning their lives around.

Zero Situational awareness. I'm guessing too, that he has serious depression stemming from long-term unemployment. Regardless, I hope he takes this as a wake-up call to get some hand-to-hand training. Shoot, I'd bet just the SA would have prevented this! Six bored young teens aren't looking to have the tables turned on them. I think they'd scatter like cockroaches after the first one or two hit the ground and didn't get up.
Good that the community gave up these miscreants. It may be the thing that saves them from perdition.
These little roaches are about to have their lives turned around. May it do them good, and may they each recognize it for what it is. Failing that, may their next victims teach them the meaning of the pursuit of life and defense of it.
.......The juvenile suspects face charges of felonious assault and aggravated rioting........
My opinion is that the juveniles be tried as adults for attempted murder. Again that is just my opinion. God Bless the victim and praying for a speedy and complete recovery and justice !!! Smile:
