Screw people who think it's bull#. Protect yourself so next time you can keep your sanity and wallet. I am all for violence as a last resort but I'm not above using said violence. Passive resistance gets you hurt and robbed. I can't stand a thief who can't get his or it's own stuff because they are too lazy to get a friggin job. If the police only beat them daily, I wouldn't have a problem with police brutality.

I'm beginning to like sharia law. At least they won't have hands to steal again. Just joking.

So by clean up the streets you mean kill all that don't agree with your line of thinking?
I actually agree with most of what your saying, just think your solution kinda sounds like a final one.

To the OP, glad that all you lost was the 15 dollars.
I doubt you will be seeing that pair again. You were hardly the soft target they probably thought they were going to get.

Hope you have some better days!

I'm glad nothing bad happened. It sounds like it could have been worse than it was. No one should have to get shot in his home for not giving up a wallet.

Word of advice listen to LOSTinAMERICA, they only respect force.
Answer the door next time with a .44 mag with a 8 inch barrel and they won't bother you ever again.

True, there is no actual thing called stopping power. It's a myth generated by armchair commandoes and ADD afflicted teenagers. However, it has been my personal experience that a .44 magnum will put down just about anyone.

And you'll look like a badass in doing so, thus guaranteeing rumors of a guy with a big gun going around, and that nobody should try to screw with him. Just saying

No, I mean the true criminals. You know, the one's who make it so your grandmother can't walk down the street. We need a final solution. Want to know why we do? Because it's not safe on the streets. Call it what you want but I see you wanting to live in a combat zone. Stand your ground down here works for me. I'm wise to the ways of the world. I don't cater to criminals. I will not. It's not my way, it's the natural progression of things. I'll stand up for myself. I'll stand up for anyone who is being victimized.

Nice trying to twist my words but the fact is it's not my way. It's the right way.

Well those are the guys and gals in the expensive suits in our nations capital.

But hey you have your ideas how to fix what is wrong and I have mine, guess they are far apart.

I didn't think it was about the "tranny" thing, though after your reply, now a little voice says "Is this a transgender hate thread of some weird kind?"

But I'm being totally serious with you. Your story just sounds messed up so I called out some of the details that sounded off to me and made me think you were lying. Your explanation of the left out details more or less adds up so I'll end at the conclusion of, "Idk, sounds messed up man. Probably shouldn't have opened the door."


My bad it was the


The transsexual individual

That made me think you were purposefully missing obvious details that don't really need to be stated




He immediately tried pushing the door in, so he ended up coming face to face with my knife and backed up a step.

Do you think someone could hold a door closed with one hand against the entire weight of someone pushing in and hold a knife out defensively through the door? Door opens on the left so it would be impossible to do such a thing.


Maybe I should write it in a way that is descriptive enough for you to understand.
Using my right hand that had my knife in it I twisted the knob while planting my left hand on the wall. Keeping my knife hand on the knob and hidden i pulled the door open approximately 2.5/3 inches. The man outside pushed the door immediately after he saw it open slightly. As the man pushed, I leaned back slightly and slid the knife out from behind the door quickly so as to have it in the mans face as he forced his way through. the Door at this point was approximately 3/4 of the way open. Having seen the knife the man quickly stepped back trying to remove himself from striking range. Having only 3ft to go before being stopped by the guardrail I easily kept him in a controlled range.

Happy?

It is not the individual I was worried most about though. It is more a matter of who his people are and how would they react to his getting stabbed/killed. For all I knew he could have had three or four friends waiting as back up. For all I knew his people might want to follow me after I thought I was safe and attack my family.

90% of the people in this area you look at and can tell they cant afford a gun and their crack too. The dangerous ones keep the idiots in line but don't cause people trouble unless people cause them trouble. Almost all the crimes here are petty and I've never even had anyone break into my car. I had a couple of local drunks make threats. Warning shots can be heard sometimes but actual gunshot victims are always shot in a different part of town.

This guy looked like he spent a lot of money on his wardrobe and he didn't have addict eyes. He was well groomed as well. So my thoughts was more concerned with who he ran with. If I would have just stabbed him I could have had a small army on my hands. Wasn't worth the risk.

Whoa, whoa, whoa. While I implied to take care of the guy and his trash, you also need to be aware of repercussions. Usually, just flashing a big ol chromed out .44 mag will get people jumpy. Nobody would eff with a gun that big.

If nothing happens in the next few weeks, whatevs. But if they come on your porch again, you pop them without a second thought. You would be well within your right to self defense to dispose of them. If you show weakness to petty criminals, they will smell it out like sharks. And then they will try and make you their prey.

Nay. They came onto your porch, they meant serious business. That meant they weren't threatened by you or what you could do. Next time, flashing a kitchen knife might get a gun pulled on you, breaking the 4th rule of gun fights, never bring a knife to a gunfight.

It's your right to own a firearm. I advise every person to own one. You keep it in a place that has a door and is away from any outside windows. Or you cut out a piece of drywall next to your door and put in really thin plaster so you only have to punch through plaster and you have a firearm.

Yep, I'm absolutely happy with your story and undestand now that you're a moron.

You let your door open, nice job. At least put on a pair of shoes and put your foot down behind the door a couple inches open.

Ever try to push open a door that a guy had his foot behind? You lost "control" of this situation when you willfully gave up the "fortification" of your own front door. Sweet job dude! We all feel reaallllllllly bad for you!

I am still pretty amazed at how clear my head was as compared to say a fist fight. Like two completely different kinds of adrenaline there.


Competition vs survival.

It could be worse. You could be a broke hooker in the cold

I hate to be the internet badass but as soon as he said about a gun I would have cut him lol. Absolutely no way I'm messing around if my life is on the line.

Glad you're ok though, try and enjoy the rest of your Christmas

Ahh never mind, the true internet badass arrived before me. This guy is trained for any situation, as you can see, and always keeps a calm, calculating head on his shoulders when unexpected, life-threatening situations arise. You won't catch this guy opening doors with no shoes on.

Dude I could give you examples from my life or tell you about a fellow ranger who was smashed with a tire iron recently but none of these stories will help you as this is the dangers of life mate. and besides its not about us its about what U went through.... consider a larger peep hole for said door....

HUG er ah that was a manly hug dude... not lol a sick one....

Listen up please as many have suggested you need to report this.... NOT for justice as there is none... But as Night suggested you have ID in that wallet and ID actual paperwork is the worse thing for ID theft...

Also the more LEO's here about "The Trannie" the smaller her / his /its circle becomes...

Don't hate them please do not waste your energy - forgive them n do not give them a second thought. Move on..... YOU sir are alive and do not have a gun shot, knife in ribs just a bit pissed off and angry that you lost your wallet..... It could be worse waking up either in heaven or hospital....... so in a way this is a good story one that has sharpen your spidy senses.....

Merry Christmas fellow ATSer may 2015 be your year!!!!




PS if you see either at another day gloves off.....



edit on 12/25/2014 by IceHappy because: cause we are not all gifted ATS star writers some of us have to try harder and correct spelling and lol grammar - now toss the grammar brick at me ATSers LOL

thank you. Wow losing that much money would send me off the deep end, luckily I'm too paranoid to walk around with more than $50 in my pocket at any given time.


I normally don't carry around that much cash...it was an unusual circumstance at the time.

What is really interesting is what happened to me about a week after I was mugged. I took a bus ride to one of my favorite parks in the city...and I got to talking to a woman who was volunteering in the park trimming shrubbery. I told her what had happened to me. She was a good listener and very kind. About 15 minutes into our conversation she said.."wait here a minute; I live close by; I will be right back." I said ok...and I waited. In about 10 minutes she was back and she handed to me $200.00 dollars in cash...saying she was sorry for my loss and she hoped the money would help. I deeply thanked her and then she went home; and I went home...because of her I was able to buy groceries that month. The kindness of strangers...sometimes it is just mind blowing!.

And your way gets people shot as well, but that doesn't matter to you cause in your eyes you are 'cleaning up the streets'
This isn't judge dredd and you can't deal with crime that way.
Violence begets violence.
And that is all I have to say to you at this point.
