  •  I thought of doing something like this (0+ / 0-)

    Ranging from peaceful intervention to something more aggressive but with the purpose of directing the man away from his targets and on down the street.

    It all happened really quickly to think of calling the police. And to be honest, he seemed just nuts, not a true threat, and not something to waste the LAPD's time with, although if something a lot worse went down, I'd beat myself up for thinking that.

    I agree about freezing in place. That lingered with me for awhile that I just pretty much stood there doing nothing, feeling some pride that I didn't run away in fear/social denial, but embarrassed that I didn't do squat to make the situation better in any way.  

    Life looks aflame from afar; but close up it's just fireflies in a jar. Visit me daily at artofstarving
