I apologize if another article contained this info. I only saw the OPs post, which did not mention this.
I really can kick myself for even getting involved in these threads. They're put up to solicit a knee-jerk reaction from folks and, I think, are a
disservice to the ATS community. Instead of debating or discussing, the threads are usually designed to be lopsided towards one position. In this
case, the majority believe the victim was right to plow the attacker over.
And a lot of you are so quick to point out how it is where you live. But, in legal terms, this does not matter. It only matters what the law is where
the incident occurred. And, to think that by simply discussing the law, someone can actually say what kind of person I am and whether I would help
someone in an emergency?
ATS, in my opinion, has really fallen. There was a time many, many years ago where a MOD wouldn't put up a thread in a knee-jerk fashion as this and
when members could actually debate based on the facts....not invent their own details to fit their agenda.
At least Intrepid took a step back and tried to look at this critically as well.
Makes me wonder what some of you would do, if ever assigned to a jury.
