This happened in Florida. What does Florida law and common sense say about shooting this guy?
This. . .Personally, he’d have never gotten the chance to get close enough for a swipe like that. He’d get painted soon as he exited the truck with a knife in his hand. More than a step or two my direction wouldn’t end well for him.
What a mess. This is why I try really hard to check my ego and temper before getting in my car. Idiots are going to cut you off. They are stupid. It ain’t worth it.
. . .and this!I concur. If he's exiting his vehicle with a knife and is advancing on me, I'm drawing. What he does after that will determine what I do.
You can hear them arguing over ‘right on red’ and ‘you cut me off’.Once the trucker gets out of the truck with a knife, it's game on. I wonder, however, what happened just before that. Perhaps some words that should have been left unsaid?
Theres a 3 minute video in top of article that shows the answers to all your questions? It IS the actual incident recorded.Was the motor rider still sitting on the bike when the turd attempted to slash him and he drew? Or did he alight from same putting stand down, drawing at that time? Or did he drop the motor and alight and draw?
The article really doesn't give enough detail which I'd personally like to know even if not important to this discussion.
In that situation, I'm off the bike the second he appears with a blade. On the opposite side of his advance. I've had instances where there may be an issue when coming to a stop with another, I've put the kickstand down in case I needed to bail on the motor for mobility.
Come out with a knife after a road rage incident? Game on. Does that person know how the game is played when he exits the cage? If not, he's about to be schooled on the games rules.
Arguing with the guy with a knife like that? Nah, he could have popped him and still been maimed or killed before the turd succumbed to the shot/s. That motor rider is an idiot to stand there being threatened with a knife, the turd with the knife is an idiot to even produce a deadly weapon into an argument escalating the potential for grave bodily harm or death.Theres a 3 minute video in top of article that shows the answers to all your questions? It IS the actual incident recorded.
Yup, dipsticks the whole lot of them.There’s a whole lot of stupid going on in that video.
Who ‘tries’ to use a knife on someone like that? That was the weakest ‘attack’ I’ve seen? Dudes a dipstick.
Biker guy stands there wayyyy too close and challenges said dipstick? He’s a dipstick.
Woman recording? Did she really threaten to steal the guys truck in the middle of all that? She’s a dipstick too.
Kinda seems like the ‘attack’ was over when the guy drew his gun. Dipstick #1 was already backing up after the swipe
Dipstick #2 then drew and threatened the guy
All while Dipstick #3 was blabbering and saying she was gonna ‘take his truck’.
I’m amazed only one person wound up arrested after all that.
I'm betting that is almost always the case.Once the trucker gets out of the truck with a knife, it's game on. I wonder, however, what happened just before that. Perhaps some words that should have been left unsaid?
100% if you can stow your ego and NOT STOP.As previously said, "There’s a whole lot of stupid going on in that video."
It seems like, in an awful lot of these cases, there is a whole lot of stupid on both sides. Follow the rule, "just don't be stupid," and it seems like you avoid about 90% of these incidents!
