    Saw this video of a guy and what I'm assuming is his daughter being chased through the streets of Portland with zero police in sight. Reading the situation only as you see it, how would you have reacted?

    Is your life and that of your daughter in danger? Do you run until you can't run any longer then succumb to the crowd? Do you stop and confront the crowd?

    Bear Mace would be helpful in the Fire Extinguisher size and if I was surrounded, I'd shoot the biggest guys nearest me first (in the head) and then it's who pisses me off the most. I'd like to see these basement dwellers 'convictions' as they are sprayed with blood & brain.

    as grey said - avoid the area is the first, best and smartest idea. If you get caught in a pop up riot - don't become Reginald Denny without a fight.

    In the case in the video, it looks like dummy went looking for trouble and found it.

    It would appear that these folks have removed any doubt that they are nothing more than rabid animals

    First reason that guy was asking for an ass kicking: Subjecting his daughter to such danger.
    Second reason: Putting himself in known danger, without proper means of defense nor backup.

    What would I do? None of the above. Going to Portland, OR would be essentially jumping into a giant, turd filled toilet in order to experience the 'rush' of being flushed along with the turds once somebody decides to pull the handle.

    For the record, ANTIFA dorks are arming themselves and learning to shoot. They may look like and act like dorks, but they are dorks that can kill you and eventually may if you upset their easily triggered little egos and sense of entitlement. There have always been 'homes' for the fringe extremists to gather and stir sh!t. ANTIFA is gaining numbers because it appeals to all the little socialist [email protected] who are continually triggered by anyone who doesn't agree with their group think. That, and they have a common enemy in Orange-Man-Bad. It's a home for leftist sh!tbirds.

    I wouldn't have attended the festivities let alone bring my kid, but in the event of spillover, with an innocent person enveloped by the crowd, would that guy have been justified (again based only on what we see in the video) to draw a weapon?

    I would not put my daughter into a dangerous situation in the first place. The choice between making a protest and my daughters safety is very lopsided to me.

    Morally justified or legally justified? Morally- probably no. Legally- definitely no. He'd get silver bracelets for threatening a peaceful demonstration. I'm being a bit sarcastic, but I only saw cameras, phone cameras, a rolled up newspaper, and a balloon sculpture being carried by the crowd.

    He's a complete moron for putting himself, and even more of an idiot for putting his daughter in that situation.
    That being said , When I watch a video like this. I wouldn't mind kicking some antifa ass.

    I watched the video a little more closely. what exactly was that? some kind of autistic slap fight? really no reason to feel one way or another for either "side". retards producing retards doing retard things. that's a really good use of personal time too. what are they demanding again? more confusing than anything. especially the costumes

    That's a no-win situation. Sometimes, being able to do something doesn't mean you SHOULD do it. He has every right to BE there, but it ain't smart. I've got every right to use an open bear trap as a rest for my testicles. But I probably shouldn't.

    I wouldn't be there. If I ended up there, I'd probably NOT have a firearm with me. If I HAD a firearm with me, I'd probably not draw it. It's got LOSE written all over it.



    Besides - with no victims they light cars and ATM's on fire - great for gaining support to crush their panty-waist movement. Shoot a few? They get sympathy.

    IIRC the 'girl' was the man's adult daughter and what we don't see is before this, she was standing on the wall & pepper spraying the group (the video was altered by cutting that part out).

    Ok...first off...are we talking about the dude dressed up with a Roman type helmet with the girl in the stars and stripes?

    if so, epic fail on his part for taking her to any type of ANTIFA infected rally. Dude should know that the place is a shit show waiting to happen. He clearly does as he's dressed for "battle". If he wants to go himself, go nuts...but DO NOT take your young child with you.

    As for the idea if you are being chased, do you turn and fight or run until you can't run any further? If I had my daughter, I'd take the latter option but would insure HER safety first. IF that means I push her into a building and then stand in front guarding the door...that's what I'd do. #1 job as a parent...protect your kids and family.

    Just how I see it.

    He clearly dressed up to get attention and went looking for trouble, and found it. Unfortunately for the young lady, she was along for the ride. He deserves an ass kicking for putting her in that situation.

    Note I did not watch the video.

    But, remember the three S's. Don't go to Stupid places with Stupid people and do Stupid things. I use that as a test for whether I should do something. If the thing I am considering fails all 3, nope. Maybe I could tolerate failure of one test, but not all three.

    Three "S's" stand for three very different things where I'm from......

    Captain Sparta should have asked Howard Stark for a larger shield.

    That also works, if the first three S's fail and you need to remove the evidence.

    What state? But here in MA……….

    He is in retreat. When it gets to the point that I have nowhere left to retreat, (backed up against a wall or fence for example) then I am going to draw my weapon and as only a last resort use deadly force because I feel my life is in danger. Don’t bother telling me that my gun will be confiscated, I am going to end up in court, and how much the legal fees are going to be, I get it. But I am not going to let my kid or myself get beaten by an angry mob.

    But I go out of my way to avoid getting anywhere’s near those sorts of demonstrations. So I figure the chance of finding myself in that sort of situation are somewhere between slim and none.
