I was walking, like i do most night, through a dark and dangerous neighborhood which i live near. Whilst walking down a wooded curve in the road, i hear a struggle in the woods. Well, being the curious person that i am, i ha to look. I waded into the growth, useing the hunting kills i know so that i wouldnt be heard, i come upon 2 guys, maybe 18-24 or so, holding a girl of 16 as i later find out. Their goal, rape! So, i pull my knife that i always carry, a 5 inch fixed blade. I tell them to stop and leave calmly. One guy gets up, the other holding the girl. The standing guy pulls a knife, a 6' butterfly knife. He saunters up and ready(not visibly) and he tunges with a off balance thrust to my gut. I quickly side step, left hand catching hi sknife hand, and y knife slicing up his forearm, tearing a few tendons loose. He screas, drops the knife and runs off. I walk to the other, and about 5 feet away he pulls a gun, a snub nosed revolver. I threw y knife before he got it out. it stabed into his chest, a little under the shoulder. I ran and tackled him, knocking the gun out of his hand. The girl ran and called cops as i held the man down. I no longer walk there, seeing that i was looking for an excuse to use what i learn. But, i cant help to wonder, why learn if im not going to learn? if i have the ability, doesnt that give me the responsiblity to use it if i can? should i walk along, helping when i see? or seek it out to help? Wheres the line between guardian and murderer?

No offense man, but you sound more like a 14 year old kid who has been watching too many movies. Its somewhat hard to believe you were able to throw a knife at someone's chest with perfect accuracy before the guy could pull the gun out, and secondly, if what you're saying is by any stretch of the imagination true, you could be responsible for murder.

I am assuming that since the girl ran for the police and you held the guy down till they arrived that you were able to learn her age that there is a news article about it. Could you post a link for more information.

I live in South Carolina, and that kind of incident would have been all over the newspapers (which I read daily)... not a word...

'nuff said...



p.s. Just for information... unless you're hunting (and licensed), any knife over 2 inches in S.C. is considered a "concealed weapon" if any portion of it is concealed, so if you're walking around with a 5" fixed blade knife on your side, you're more liable to get booked for a felony than praised as a hero...

In case you arent getting it, these folks are doubting the validity of your story.

With good reason. Personally I dont believe it any further than I can throw my car.

Wait...not that far.

You are going to find that if you post such stories, you are going to have to provide more than you own good word if you expect folks to believe you.

Welcome to the boards.

Ippon me mae,

You're being called out on this mate.

Provide some evidence as to the validity of your story or it gets locked.

Except for some of the weapons stuff and other situational bits and bobs, I don't really think it's all that suspicious.

In my area a dead body was found, it only reached as far as local news.
According to the released details of the autopsy, the guy wasn't hit with a weapon, but a fist, 'once'.
Police are obviously looking for an extremly powerful guy, probably big.

That only hit local news, you would think a story like that would spread out a bit wider but hey, it didn't.

And as for the original poster's story, if nobody reported anything then it is very unlikely that it would get anywhere near the press.
The girl may not have reported anything, and it is a known fact that people, especially women who undergo the trauma of rape or attempted rape very rarley report it to the police due to fear of vengence by their attackers or just feeling completly ashamed of themselves (I hate sick c**ts, and to think they actually take pride in what they do).

The world is not as caring as people like to think and the press will only print a story if it is profitable, so give the guy some slack, whether it happened or not it shows that his values are in the right place, regardless of the possibilty of an attempted ego trip.
