mynameist: Rwa2play: stir22: mynameist: Nice, because upping the ante to violence is always amusing.seriously? some guy comes at a woman while jerking off and says,"hey, watch me jack off", and you're NOT okay with her pulling a gun on him?seriously?wow. enjoy being a victim.This. Some people in the world just need a swift kick in the ass to tell them to stop doing something stupid, either figuratively or literally.I can't get over how all of you Farkers think flashers and rapists are the same thing or are even remotely connected. If she wanted to protect herself against rape, she would have been better off pointing that thing at any random guy walking close to her.
mynameist: Just to clear things up. There is a huge gap between flashing and rape. Has there even been a case where someone was flashed and then raped moments later? There may be absolutely no connection at all.There is not a huge gap between pulling a gun on someone and shooting them. Most defense classes will teach you never to pull one out unless you plan on firing it.
clyph: The use of deadly force (or credible threat thereof) is only justifiable if there is an imminent threat of death or grievous bodily harm.Doesn't seem to be the case here.
Vegan Meat Popsicle: OnlyM3: You're french, aren't you. Your advice to her would be what? Drop and spread next time?I know you don't have the capacity to understand, but some of us are actually capable of coming to solutions that don't start and end with "KILL IT!"

SkunkWerks: elsuavio: Are you not sure what forensic psychology isI'm sure what it's not. Pretty much all I needed to know there.
you have pee hands: She should have pepper sprayed his balls. I guarantee you he'd never forget that one, and it's totally legal.
Ghengis_Socrates: Headso: apparently all the farkers saying this was no big deal were, they knew exactly what this guy was thinking too and based on their knowledge of the situation they have deuced that this woman should have just waited it out.No, I was not there. On the other hand, none of the articles that I read about this incident stated whether or not she actually pointed the gun at him. That would be the line between credible and not credible threat of use of deadly force. There is a huge difference between pointing at him and not. As far as I know, none of us know. Also, none of us know what the guy was or was not thinking. I conjecture that she, too, had no idea what he was thinking. Perhaps that entered into her thought process, but we will probably never know.
Headso: what were her other options?
SkunkWerks: Headso: I can't believe all the farkers who think this lady should have just chilled while this guy jerked off for her and her kid.I can't believe all the farkers who believe there were only two options, and this was one of them.

demaL-demaL-yeH: Jae0o0: Except that is nothing like what happened to the woman in the news story."Watch me masturbate!" *BANG* Yeah, that's a proportional response. Pointing and laughing would have failed because????
Vegan Meat Popsicle: Headso: shouldn't have felt threatenedI guess that's a good point. I forgot to include the fact that people like you and OnlyM3, beyond being complete rockheads, are also incredible cowards who feel compelled to pull a gun every time you "feel threatened" at any level.
demaL-demaL-yeH: CSB time:When I was stationed in Germany, I often took the streetcar.One fine morning, I noticed an obvious American soldier wearing a trench coat.At one of the stops, he went to the front of the streetcar and flashed the rest of the passengers.The Germans started laughing - little old ladies and men, teenagers who went to the trade school, business people in suits, and blue collar types in overalls. Even little kids. Every single one of them busted out laughing (quite a few of them were pointing*) as the flasher dashed off the streetcar and ran away.It was a cultural lesson for me and for the flasher. (Oh, and it's common for men to pull over their cars and piss on the nearest wall/tree.)Maybe we ought to adopt this attitude: Point (fingers, not firearms) and laugh.*Circumcision is rare in Germany.

strapp3r: is Lake Sacajawea near Lake Shotizcokov?

LowbrowDeluxe: That seems like an appropriate and sane escalation.
