3). A terrorist event is not a self- defense shooting. I cannot understand why so many who should know better insist of treating an event like this…like the Charly Ebdo, the Paris Attack, the Mali Attack, the Jakarta Attack, the San Bernardino Attack…and now Belgium like it was a mugger in a parking lot. Once the bad guys open the game, in an event like this you are permitted to take it to any level of violence you wish without any concerns of legality or liability. Say nothing at all…make no announcements…keep calm and shoot them in the face. If you don’t think you can do that, then please get on the ground and out of the way of those who will at least try.
Go read the whole thing.
Take heed of this advice. There are events that will set you in a position where the standard rules of living in society simply do not apply. Preservation of Life is the main goal and the niceties of a civilized society disappear during this time-frame. It does not only have to be a terrorist attack, but also a major collapse of social services and the rule of the law such as full-fledged riots that Law Enforcement cannot simply control.
Shit… charging a man with murder in this place was like handing out speeding tickets in the Indy 500.
