Di Atribe: What's with the "Amusing" tag?


I dunno, the dry way the article was written did actually cause me to giggle a bit.

T.M.S.: Keep that useless piece of metal in your pants.


Brandishing a weapon is already illegal, bud. And, depending on your state, considered a form of assault. You're complaining about something that's already not allowed.

You people and your intolerance are almost humorous if it weren't so sad. I don't suppose any of you brainiacs could possibly imagine a scenario where this gentleman might have gotten mugged by someone posing as an individual needing directions? You know absolutely nothing about him or about the person asking for directions. You simply assume that the guy is mental because he drew a pistol. Showing a gun is not brandishing. Did the article say he pointed the gun? Nope, he merely pulled it from the holster and probably held it down to his side. He acted properly and the guy calling the police was acting like a puzzy.

Smoke wagon = gun
Skinned = unholstering the gun
Asker = guy asking directions.

Meanwhile in AZ, open carrying seems to be a sure sign that you're a local and gets you asked for directions more. Especially by German and Japanese tourists.

Open carry means law abiding citizen, or at least a citizen not hindered by a felony. Most people will trust a person with an open carry weapon before they trust a person who may be hiding something.Laws allowing open carry are much better than concealed.

See where it says "Rib Tip"... naw Fark that, you don't wanna go that way. You gonna go all the way down about half a block and you'll see a Torino with no wheels on it. Now inside that Torino is my cousin Jackie, now you tell him you're my boy and you're lost and he'll make sure you get to where your goin' cause you don't want to know from me man, this ain't even my neighborhood, I'm from the West side of Chicago here on vacation...

I also would have accepted "FARK yo' mama!"

Returning library books late is not allowed. Cutting into the line at Starbucks is not allowed. Pointing a gun at a human being doing you no harm is not allowed.

I think only one of these three activities deserves instant death to the lawbreaker.

Seems a legitimate assumption, given I'm from two states over and the fact that AZ has permissive open carry is a complete surprise to me. Given that they're essentially run by white-supremacist fascists at this point, I would not have guessed they were that lax on firearms.

Too little information.

Asking for directions/the time/change for a dollar is a time honored "interview" used by thugs before initiating a robbery. The criminal will use the opportunity offered by someone answering the question to close distance and assault the person... otherwise you are on your guard to somebody invading your personal space. I can believe that the person doing the asking may have appeared to be troublesome, or even was actually planning something and called the police to get back at somebody who wouldn't have the kindness to let himself be robbed.

Still, even as one licensed to carry a concealed weapon I know there's folks out there who are looking for trouble and inventing it when they don't find any. I can also believe that the person doing the asking was innocent and the person who pulled the gun was overreacting.

Too little information to be sure.

I came out of a shop and there was a guy standing there looking around at the street signs. He saw me and asked if I knew how to get to some place. So I told him to walk down the street eight blocks, take a left on Smith, walk three blocks, take a right on Washington, and it would be two blocks down from there. He smiled and thanked me enthusiastically and I wished him a good day and told him goodbye and we went on our way.

The only thing was now we were walking down the street right next to each other going the same direction. It might not have been so awkward, but for three blocks we didn't say a word to each other. I started wondering if I should say something or if he should be saying something. Finally after five blocks I just sort of slowed way down and let him get 100 yards or so in front of me. Then I yelled ahead to him, "Don't worry, if you get lost I'll be right here behind you!"

Well that didn't exactly comfort him and he started walking a little faster. And for some reason I was also walking a little faster. We walked like that for almost a full block before he started running.

Now I'm kind of pissed off. I gave this guy good directions and he was acting like a creep. So I started running after him. I didn't know what I was gonna say when I caught him. He was running and I wasn't gaining any ground so I stopped right as he was about to make that left.

I yelled out, "Oh yeah?!?! Running away from me?!?! Well don't forget, I KNOW WHERE YOU ARE GOING!"

Hi I'm a black American. My people's culture glorifies "gangsta" culture and strives to appear bad-ass, threatening, and super-duper hardcore at all times. I get very angry and hurt on a personal level when I approach white people who have been conditioned to unfairly fear me based on their repeatedly being victimized by people who look just like me.

As a cop and CPL holder I am of two minds of this. Though to be clear the man who drew the pistol was wrong, acted criminally, and should be arrested./b>

That being said, asking for directions is VERY often part of what is called the "interview". An robber selects and victim who appears to be weak, the approach them with something innocuous in order to close the distance, and to gauge how aware the victim is. Typically this will be asking for a ride, bus fare, help carrying something, and yes, directions. How the victim responds lets the robber know how easy this will be and helps distract them. When the victime looks at their phone to see what time it is, reaches in their pockets for change, etc, that's when the strike happens. Either the robber working alone, or often with a partner out of sight, What happens next can very very brutal and often fatal. This isn't like movies or tv. It's not Joe Chill nervously pointing a gun at Bruce Wayne's parents, or Marshal in "How I Met Your Mother" getting held up in the park. More often than not, the first clue that the victim is being held up is the massive blunt force trauma to the head.

It is VERY smart to be wary of any stranger approaching you on the street and asking you for something. "Don't talk to strangers" isn't just for kids. If you look and act like a soft target, you'll probably lose your phone, money, keys, watch and anything else of value. And maybe your life.

So, reacting with a degree of alarm, wariness, and even aggression to someone asking for directions is actually a very purudent thing to do. As is carrying a conceal pistol.
BUT that should always stop short of drawing your pistol when there is no actual threat yet. Go head and reach under your coat or shirt, give them a stare and say "I can't help you sir, good bye". Let them know that you know what is up. Show them that it's not going to be easy. Make them aware that they might not win this one. But don't break the law yourself. And brandishing a firearm is a crime.

Yep.

What you say is true; but as a single woman who's never carried a gun in my life, I can tell you it's fairly easy to be polite and non-paranoid and also protect yourself. I've been approached for directions, spare change, the time of day, quite often, and I never even made a "reach" movement for my non-existent gun. If they're too close, I will take a step back, if they're asking for money I tell them I don't have any ("sorry" or "not today" works well), and I never approach anyone in a car closer than the curb (I won't step into the street because they "can't hear me").

You don't need to come off like Dirty Harry's calmer brother to just say "Sorry, I can't help you," and keep walking. Now, if they persist, then you probably should get more assertive; but if someone asks you "How do I get to the bus stop?" they probably just want directions to the bus stop.

I'm guessing you're not going to shoot the local IDPA champion, who's open carrying that day because it's hot, he's in his own neighborhood and the kids want to play on the playground.

And the reason you're not going to shoot him is that he's been watching you act like an idiot for the preceding couple minutes, eyeballing him, and as soon as he saw you trying to clear your Jennings or Lorcin or Hi-Point (or whatever the hell it is you got from Ray-Ray 'round back of the 7-11) from under your clothes, he's already drawn and put five rounds through your X-ring.

Gyrfalcon: Now, if they persist, then you probably should get more assertive


And you propose to do that HOW?

You state that with proper mindset and awareness a person does not need weapons for defense. Now, I don't doubt you've never been accosted... neither have I. But there's those who have (note the information from the police officer earlier in the thread). This is indeed a common tactic.

If the person asking the question begins to close the distance and you see that little gleam of hatred in his eye, "being assertive" will do bugger-all. Why? Because you're about to get knocked upside the head, and hopefully he'll only take your purse. Your soon to be assailant has not seen any cues that you are anything but the easy pickings you appear to be.

It is cues such as reaching under a shirt/into a pocket/etc. that will give a possible attacker pause- he's watching your hands to see if you might be going for a weapon. He doesn't know what you actually have a gun/knife/etc., but the uncertainty will give him pause.

T'were I approached by a suspicious person asking questions out of the blue, I darn well would put my hand near my weapon. Innocent people wouldn't notice the movement or think it bizarre. People working on being guilty would VERY rapidly find someplace else to be.

I can't speak to everyone else. I spent a certain amount of time developing the mindset needed to spot someone with that hateful gleam in his eye and respond before he ever gets that close. I haven't been accosted because I worked very hard not to look like easy pickings, as you say, BEFORE said assailant ever decides to make me a victim.

Predators don't attack prey that looks like it will be difficult to take down--if you don't look like prey from the outset, you'll never (well, almost never--there's always some fool on bath salts) be approached in the first place.

I'm assuming you're trolling, but if not...

Bullshiat.

If I said 999,999 times out of a million when someone is asking for directions they want directions, I'd probably be wrong, because it's probably closer to 999,999,999 times out of a billion.

And people posting ridiculous crap like this and other people believing it is what makes our society suck just that much more. So trolling or not, stop it.

Oh, and that handgun you're carrying? It's much more likely to kill you than any robber you're afraid you'll run into. So be careful.

Are we talking American girls or European girls?
The American ones are usually pretty chunky so they can hit hard abd take a few hits but they have no endurance.
The European girls are faster with good endurance but since they're so small one good hit is all it should take (British girls don't count) .

I went to High School in a town twice that size and with actual contingents of Crips and Bloods that had moved to Az from LA. We had gang-based brawls in high school, and still nobody needed to pull out a gun when someone else asked for directions in front of the friggin' Health Dept.


Well in my high school the lunch lady was really mean to us.

What high school stories have to do with crime in Winder is lost on me

Fissile: plausdeny: Fissile: Nothing says I'm a scared ass punk like open carry of a firearm. To boot I've never seen anyone open carry who wasn't a complete moron. If decide to become a criminal, guess who I'm going to shoot first?

I'm guessing you're not going to shoot the local IDPA champion, who's open carrying that day because it's hot, he's in his own neighborhood and the kids want to play on the playground.

And the reason you're not going to shoot him is that he's been watching you act like an idiot for the preceding couple minutes, eyeballing him, and as soon as he saw you trying to clear your Jennings or Lorcin or Hi-Point (or whatever the hell it is you got from Ray-Ray 'round back of the 7-11) from under your clothes, he's already drawn and put five rounds through your X-ring.

================

Where I live, the police are prohibited from open carry while off duty. There is a reason for that. The local Po-Po have more than a couple of brain cells, unlike the tiny brained hominids that infest your "free" red state that proves how well freedom works by sucking up more federal aid than it provides in tax dollars.

You can spare me your tough guy shiat-talk. I used to belong to the NRA, and I've spent more time than I care to admit at gun ranges. I've seen what the majority of you George Zimmerman type, CCW, tough-guy wannabes are like. Fat morons who wouldn't last one round in the boxing ring with a 12 year old girl.


I don't OC to be a badass, I do it because there's rarely any reason to bother with concealment.

Considering that crime against open carriers is so rare as to be virtually nonexistent, there's no particular social stigma about it here, and it's legal - just why should I give your ranting any credence whatsoever?

WTF? Now we are mandating how people are supposed to react when bumbling idiots walk up to them and think they can just waste anyone's time for any good god damned reason? How about people grow a thicker skin. But as stupid as some people are, they need kevlar strength.

Obviously because they didn't work with math very much in your high school. Our city was twice as big as the "crime capitol of the world"(At least according to you), we had actual real gangbangers in our little town in the middle of the desert, and real gang violence, yet nobody, even to this day, has had a gun pulled on them in front of any county buildings merely for asking directions.

In other words, your full of shiat, the crime rate in a town of 14,000 can't be high enough to simulate inner city Detroit or Chicago, no matter how much you want to be "admired" for having survived it.

If you don't know where you are or where you're going you should be shot.

Asking for the time/directions is a common tactic of the armed mugger. Maybe that guy had been mugged before and was paranoid about it.

Amusing in what way, subby?

Good lord. You're just nuts. And angry. And potentially drunk.

I said Winder has a crime rate higher than average for the US. Did your math teachers not teach the difference between average and highest?

Not sure where you get the "survived it" part. Unless you meant the mean lunch lady from high school. She put me through 7 years of hell but I finally graduated and forgot all about her. I've never lived in Winder.
