two stories that you can learn from.
driving down Bardstown road going through a green light, aside a bus stop i witnessed a boy @19/20 yrs old come up from leaning against and behind the stop and pushed a man whom was passing by. he then began to swing wildly landing only twice before receaving a punch and kick in the groin.
as the boy decided to run a squad car lit lights and followed him. the man startled pick his guitar case out of the road. i had stopped and begun to exit the car at this point and offered him a ride down the street. he accepted. he had never been in a fight and was goint work.
more recently as i was walking down the same street new years a boy the same age stepped of his car and did that sholder bump thing and turned to push me .
i said back up, and led his hands a way.
at the same a second unseen person punched me in the back of the head twice. i turned with a press, and kick to the stomach. turning back the first grabbed me. i kneed him in the s/plexus, he went down and came up with a knife. he stabbed at my belly, i caught his hand with both hands. he pulled away sharply and pulled some fat out of my pinky finger. the second thrust was caught in a "kimura". during the struggle a hole was cut in my pants next to my groin, i was kicked and punched in the head and ribs by his partner. i held on to his arm and pressed until he dropped the knife and sank to the ground screaming that i broke his arm, his friend had grabbed some cash out my pocket and ran. i got to my friends house quickly to get a ride to the e.r. for four stitches.
i have never been ask politely for my cash it has been at the point of action. hit or run
