    Disabled man fends off attacker

    He wasn't armed, but he fought back and won.

    Of course the local LE response was telling folks to be sheep:

    "Police said that as a general rule, people should not fight armed robbers."

    "My God David, We're a Civilized society."

    "Sure, As long as the machines are workin' and you can call 911. But you take those things away, you throw people in the dark, and you scare the crap out of them; no more rules...You'll see how primitive they can get."

    It's good the man came out of it alive, and I don't blame him for having the urge to fight back. "Police said that as a general rule, people should not fight armed robbers." So what is someone supposed to do, let the robber beat them to death, and then take what they worked so hard to earn? I'm not gonna sit there and let a robber beat me senseless, I'm going to give him what he deserves if he assaults me, and causes me to bleed.

    Police say don't fight back? I wonder if the person who wrote this article is adding their own thoughts? I can understand run away if you can,but to allow someone to hurt you and not fight back is a foreign concept to me.

    This is exactly what they invented those little lead pellets for...
    The last Blood Moon Tetrad for this millennium starts in April 2014 and ends in September 2015...according to NASA.

    To those that paid for my freedom,
    I WILL NEVER FORGET.

    As with all statements I've made and All that I will make, please check your local laws to verify accuracy. (and if i'm wrong let me know as I like to be right in the future) After all I'm just some goofball posting on an internet forum.
