Very positively....the first responding officer was quite surprised that someone got involved and did not just cower inside.



Nice job!

So, did they get away, or were you able to detain them until the cops showed up?

Well done, Wiggy.

Too bad you couldn't get the perp.

Dumb luck…

They have a knife or gun and there is a good chance you would be rotting in the morgue right now.

you are luck you are in NM. many commie states would have charged you with assult for not dialing 911 and letting an inept barney fife handle it.

Seems to me he was carrying a pistol of his own. I would assume he would have used it if the perp pulled a weapon.

DID YOU EVEN READ THE FREAKING POST?

I would suggest re-reading it...paying close attention to my keeping cover, the 21 ft rule, and keeping the perp (driver's) body between me and the passenger.

Are you one of those types that would only 'get involved' after the scene has been sanitized and pronounced clear by LEO's? I admit that my reaction could have been risky...but as I already stated, I had mitigated the threats until a point where I was comfortable to act.

A person could what-if themselves into complete inaction in a situation like this...sometimes strong, quick, decisive action is exactly what is needed.

To each his own...it is after all your own ass.

Instead of considering myself lucky (dumb or otherwise), I am proud of my assessment of the situation and of my considered reaction to it. While I was scared of the possible outcomes, I was more 'scared' of my not acting, of having to live with the knowledge that when this moment came, I was unwilling or unable to act.

Your sheeple ID is ready now.



Yep, you did exactly right. The part in red is essentially the same thing my brother told me. He is in the AF and his job requires very quick thinking and decisive action. While in training he said that by FAR the worst students were the ones who constantly second guessed themselves into inaction.

He told me that when he's in the air he'd MUCH rather be with a person who can make a decision and stick with it, right or wrong, than be with a person who can't make up their mind, or just doesn't do anything because they aren't sure what to do.

It sounds to me like you knew exactly what to do, knew the situation very well, and made a decisive action.

Good job Wiggy.

Alright, nice job! Sounds like those are "guest workers" here to do jobs Americans refuse to do.
So, are you married/single? You can't turn this to your advantage! I'm always looking at the bright side.

Shouldn't the thread title have a BOTD warning in it now?

Good to go. Sounds sweet to me.

Go ahead and research any other incidents similar in your area. If you management still refuses to pull their head out of their ass, you can go to the press and scream that they "don't care" about their employees, and would rather they be beaten down and murdered than allow the ability to defend themselves.

Good job on your fight, and good luck in the upcoming one.

You lucky bastard.

Good to see you put some hurt on the asshole, to bad you didn't snap his neck.

Stay safe and keep up the ass kicking.

Good work man, sorry to hear your GPS is broken. too bad the turd didn't get caught. Don't listen to the Nay-sayers. you did it right.
Link Posted: 9/14/2005 11:33:15 AM EDT
Well done!

I have been in similar situations not once, not twice, but...three times!!!

I made it out unscathed all three times...1st WAS dumb luck, but my quick response was what saved the day and put a massive hurt on the perps [attempted carjacking, reacted purely on instinct...a vehicle makes for an awesome weapon] the other two times I was older, wiser, better armed and completely aware [another attempted carjacking, and a driveway robbery]. Needless to say, the last two ended the same...with scumbags dropping steamy loads in their britches and begging not to be shot.

Good on ya!
