Can a moderator preview this for acceptable content? Knife Attack [ll]f3b_1286227189[/ll] The guy with his back to the doorway gets cut. The clerk has a gun nearby. Assuming everything is in real time this act of violence happens in seconds. Are you a good witness? Can you describe the perpetrator? How many people were involved? How many shots were fired? These are just a few ideas to think about. There are many times I am unaware of my environment (studying in the library, grocery shopping, the church parking lot, etc). I also do not carry a weapon on me all the time and may take 10 seconds or more to get an improvised weapon ready (which is way too late).
