High Joshua..You dont have to "retract" your statement. Youre entitled to it. My point only relates to being a victim...or being fortunate enough to
either get out of it, run away...or just give it up. And that last one is what L.E. recommends. Just give them what they want (unless its rape in
which case, claw, scream, scratch, punch, shoot)...anything to stop and negate the attack. Stuff is just stuff.
I know the terror and helplessness a victim can feel. A couple things are important to remember: If there is a knife or gun right in your face? Give
them your stuff. My wife's incident was f'd up too. They pulled "something that LOOKED like guns" but couldve been anything: remote tv control, cell
phone...whatever It was dark.
Having this happen to the OP or any of us friends...and I think of all of us ATS members as friends...is terrifying...and your whole life passesby you
in an instant...let alone flashbacks which can last a lifetime.
One bit of advice I can give is from our training. In emergency response, 1st responding, search and resc., and Life Support...we all since thing we
wish we could forget. Injuries, death, children. TALK to someone when you get home or a chance to. Don't keep being robbed like in the O.P.'s instance
consume you. And it will if you dont get it out to a friend, family member or counselor.
When in trouble? DONT YELL "HELP"! Yell "FIRE!" People tend to respond faster looking outside when someone yells theres a fire. Be proactive, learn
how to defend...and when not to. No matter what...
Thanks for the replies
