The bearer was from Louisiana, and visiting Texas. The cynic/realist in me assumes that carrying this thing would’ve been a bigger crime than the actual violence from which one would defend one’s self (in spite of both states being open-carry).
Seems to me attempted rape and possibly murder was intended.
Georgia doesn’t have a hate crime law though.
Sounds like legislation is in the works:
He seems n… well, I’m gonna have to go with nuts
To bad she wasn’t able to poke a swastika into his forehead, Inglorious Bastards style.
“Here’s your lunch from meals on wheels Mr”
(struggle ensues, right makes might and the lady wins)
“Hang on, (pokey poke) stop whining, (jab, rip tear) almost done. Just one more arm here on the bottom… whoops… huh it looks like a 45 now”
“stfu asshole before I scratch the universal no symbol on top”

Well, it’s not me! I was thinking it might be some sort of carnival game, like Whack-a-Mole…Is it already a video game, like Candy Crush? Would you pay extra to get to use a ring of keys?
This! When I was in karate we were continuously reminded that:
If you see a blade, assume you will get cut
Every fight will end up on the ground, so you better be comfortable grappling
Never hit them once; three times at a minimum and then GTFO (looks like this lady got the memo)
If someone draws a weapon of any kind you must first control the weapon, then incapacitate them fully (ie. break something that will not allow them to wield the weapon again)
and, perhaps most importantly
Even on your best day, there is someone out there that will kick your ass on their worst day
This is the fallacy of the logic of self-defensive gun ownership. The likelihood of things working out in your favor are extremely slim, but the likelihood of the weapon being discharged accidentally or with collateral damage is high (assuming a toddler doesn’t find it and shoot your loved ones while you’re waiting to act out your Dirty Harry fantasy).
ETA: But above all: Avoid a fight at all costs in the first place! You’re not a Shaolin monk, fool!
JMHO: I don’t think the law (even in Georgia), as far as the sentencing process, should take into account the outcome (even if good and right) of a “good guy” versus “bad guy” fight.
It depends on the state, i know for sure they’re illegal in Nevada but i haven’t looked it up in TX.
One has to assume, with any weapon, that the opponent could get hold of it (previously on BB). This goes for kitty-knuckles, pepper spray etc. as well as guns, but I guess the thinking is: “better they get hold of the pepper spray than the gun.”
He was naked to be ready for “action” I suppose. He’s got some action all right.
Look at those shiners. She didn’t just key him. She pounded him. Good for her.
But would we be surprised if we found out those were from some earlier altercation?
Hesitating will often give an opponent enough of a window to act. When defending yourself you have to make the choice to either go for it or get out and 100% commit to it.
Yeah, that’s a common tactic used by both sexes: Answer the door to the delivery driver stark naked, because that’s what works in porn.
When I used to drive a big furniture delivery truck, I had a short, ugly, old dude as my ‘loader’. We would both stand on the porch, dressed in the company uniform, waiting for suspiciously long periods of time for the homeowner to open the door to two small people scheduled for that exact time. The dude/loader always stood back from the door a few feet, so that he would be the first thing visible through the peephole. Thank da Lord…
Nope (he being a known, neighborhood racist). It’s possible (others beating the snot out of him), but those shiners look kind of fresh (per my schoolyard touch football experience).
I, too, am a connoisseur of shiners, both on the giving and receiving end*. Those are just as old as the attack, because by the time he got his mugshot, they had time to ‘bloom’.
*No malice involved, I just had lots of cousins and lots of classmates playing rough. “Hey, Danny! Watch this!”
I got the impression that he was not naked when she delivered the food, only when the police entered his home. The report didn’t mention anything about him exposing himself to the driver, anyway. I would think that would have been enough evidence to show motive beyond just being a hateful creep and added something beyond battery to his charges.
Yeah, how he magically got fully naked wasn’t covered in the post. Being a warm-weather state, he may have just been wearing elastic-waist pants/shorts, so as not to give her the warning to turn and leave.
