I smiled and I told him this is what I do to people
So this is all a joke to you. You knew the individual was not a threat. I iterate my opinion you were LOOKING to escalate the situation. What you did
is not only criminal, but harmful to yourself as well. As you explained, you threatened him with a knife, and that's when he tried to allegedly "set
you on fire". Do you think he would have "attempted to set you on fire" if you had not pulled the knife? What if the man had a gun and not a
Didn't your parents tell you never to bring a knife to a gun fight? There is a reason why you will never know what law-abiding citizen is
carrying or not carrying. They will not tell you. They do not flash it. That is the last thing they want, because when the bad guy knows you are the
one armed, you're their first and main target. Your weapon is ONLY deployed when you plan on using it, not scaring someone away, this is not
Afghanistan. Are you really ready to use it? Is this what you really do to people? Any court of law would find you guilty.
Isn't "tried to set me on fire" a little over-exaggerated? I thought while reading I was gonna hear, "This guy walked up doused me in gas and tried to
light his match. Fortunately for me, the match box was wet.." You know, something like that.... All I heard was a drunk retarded individual harassing
another drunk individual, that is armed, and that latter individual pulling a deadly weapon and saying "i do this for a living". Considering you were
drinking, because I don't know many people that go to the bar and not drink as you sit there, on your devils throne, writing these self-help pieces
to get off your chest a horrible deed you've done at the expense of the ATS pity community. I also don't know many people that go to the bar with good
intentions. Usually their intention is to get intoxicated...Which we can argue, is not a good thing.
And wouldn't a "Get the f* away from me" be a better first attempt at de-escalation of a bad situation? Or going back into the bar and calling the
police. We have and pay for a police force for these exact types of situations. AND furthermore, your failure to call the police even after the
situation shows you are a bully and took advantage of the situation to portray your sexist nature by over-amplifying a peaceful situation into "ill
kill you right where you stand because i have a vagina and even though I want to be considered your equal, im still weaker than you and you can
overpower me, so this is justified". Can we now agree from all this on a off-note that men and women are if fact different and that reflects on a lot
of the way society is...or was?

Damn right dude shouldn't have touched her and he damn well knew it! So do you. And I seriously doubt that she didn't tell him to stop. Do you need
a verbatim transcript? Obviously, if a fricking knife doesn't tell him to "Back off!," if he ESCALATES it with a stupid ass lighter, then her saying
it sure as hell wasn't going to.
Stop making piss poor excuses for a violent sex offender and expecting her to take his abuse.
Agreed, no one should touch another person that doesn't want to be touched by that person. But that does not justify this story. There's more than 1
way to de-escalate a situation, and all but 1 doesn't require the use of a deadly weapon where someone can die or the situation can easily turn on its
head for the victim and the man pulls a loaded gun. And I never heard the OP mention he was a registered sex offender or that he attempted to sexually
touch her, just that he was "touchy feely and laying on her", assuming he essentially put his arm around her and was leaning all over her like the
drunk tard he was alleged to be.
My advice to the OP:
Don't fraternize with strangers, and don't pull knives on people unless you feel your life is in danger and you're 100% certain they don't have
something that can beat your knife. You never mentioned in your OP that you felt that your life was in danger, just that you smiled and said you stick
people up often. Usually in a self-defense case, the victim is required to feel their lives are at stake and cannot flee without great harm done to
them. I'm not sure what state you live in but we have laws called "Duty to Retreat", "Castle Doctrine" and "Stand-your-Ground".
