    Exactly. Those are the details that matter.

    This particular scenario was a dumpster fire. But change one little detail and it’s a whole different ball game.

    One problem - people want simple, one size fits all answers. Answers that absolve them from having to think. But life doesn’t often present problems with easy answers.

    We can’t abdicate our responsibility to THINK.

    There may also be situations where:
    1) You do not YET have a clear enough perception of events to jump right in head-first
    2) You do not morally feel right in minding your own business and leaving
    3) The pace of the situation allows you enough time to:

    Take up a position of cover/advantage, keep yourself safe, don't draw your weapon and TAKE THE TIME TO ASSESS THE SITUATION AND GET A MORE CLEAR PERCEPTION OF THE EVENTS BEFORE ACTING.

    One thing my work has taught me:

    Everybody lies.

    There are exceptions. The exceptions are not germane to this discussion. In a world of liars, don't stake your life on what you're told. Pay attention and "take your time in a hurry." Details are important, and you need time to observe and process. Preparation of mind and body buy you that time.

    Someone should forward this to the CCW in the story...


    Absolutely necessary to be able to physically and mentally shift gears effortlessly.


    Might add going over scenarios like the ones already posted and deciding your actions ahead of time. Doing so can get rid of a great deal of hesitation and let you focus on the problem at hand.
