    And I would do it again and again. If I had to stab dear brother then so be it. I pulled a knife on  my own father one night to protect my Mother. It's called being a human being.

    •  That might be what you would do, but you cannot (0+ / 0-)

      predict what other people will do when directly faced with violence.

      Some rise to the occasion and some do not. Decisions to do so depend upon the situation as much as the people themselves.

      It looks bad, but I need more data before I sling blame at anyone but the attacker at this point.
