If that is the rule I must be the exception.
I don't think anyone with over 1,000 posts should be considered a lurker.
Tactica1supris3's forum posts
Honestly, if I think really hard the only thing I remember from "the old OT" are the account suicides. Those were funny. Users that "suicided" seemed genuinely pissed off at GameSpot, and made a number of threads (eventually posting porn), like Chang3. Now people request the mods to ban their accounts so they can see a thread made about them and go post on some obscure forum about what goes on here at GameSpot. As far as activity, it was a lot more active to say the least. I wouldn't complain though.
You aren't getting it. The first response according to the law is to leave the environment. Only when that is not possible...which it clearly was here as he got away....are you allowed to use ONLY the force necessary to stop the attack. Ie...push the girl away...not punch here. Punching someone doesn't mean you're going too hurt them anymore than the person did you. If you punch someone in the mouth after they bite you and attack you the way the man claims, provided all of their teeth don't fall out, that isn't excessive force in the slightest.
Getting bitten is not assault; it's battery, and it is perfectly legal to defend yourself with force in the case of battery as long as it is reasonable (i.e. if you think somebody will spit on you, you can push them out of the way; you can not hit them with a baseball bat).
[QUOTE="Tactica1supris3"]Are you kidding me? When you hit someone that's attacking you, unless they're out of their minds, they're going to stop. As the man said, (let's pretend this is 100% true) they kept coming...following him to his car. If he laid one of them out, it would've been over. Self-defense is self-defense is self-defense. Come on now. Taylor_BThat's ridiculous. From what the article said, nothing they did warranted a punch. They took some of his cds. So what? Call the cops. Where are they going to go? "Self-defense is self-defense..." Are you serious? I'm very serious, because I'll be damned if two women think they're going to jump me, bite me, cause whatever physical harm they want and I'm simply going to take it. What do you think this is? When you're being attacked you don't gamble to the extent the person is trying to cause harm. You put an end too it A.S.A.P. Now I'm not surprised this guy didn't haul off and deck one these girls, because I don't believe his story for one second, however, when that is the situation there's only one way to guarantee your safety.
[QUOTE="Taylor_B"] Dude, you'd be in trouble for using excessive force. Why couldn't you just take your burger and leave?Taylor_B
Normally I'd agree, but did yous ee that guys back? They dug their teeth into his chest and back. Would you loose some blood and just walk away with your burger? lol: / I could barely see the "bite" on his chest, and his back was just covered with gauze. I don't know how strong the girls were, but it seems he should have been able to run away. What good would hitting them do you, even if they had bitten you? It would just make things worse for you when the cops showed up. Are you kidding me? When you hit someone that's attacking you, unless they're out of their minds, they're going to stop.

I don't know about racist...that's a little extreme. Sexist on the other hand, I can't help but get nervous when I see a young female behind the wheel. And when I see them under the hood of car, I fear for my life and keep my distance. I feel bad about it, but in most cases I can't help it.
