ok first of all alot of you have horror stories about muggings and knives... and also you all carry knives. WHAT THE HELL?!?! Is it you don't feel safe walking down the street? I could walk anywhere at any time of day or night in my city with $1000 bills taped all over my body and I wouldn't be afraid. No I don't carry a knife or any kind of weapon. I say these about the Knives because if someone has one on them and they get in a fist fight they are more likely to bring out the knife if they start losing. Not to mention its just asking for trouble.

Now if it were me and I had witnessed this happening first of all I'm confident with my running speed if it came down to that 2nd a knife is a clumsy weapon. Informing the police first is the smart thing then just yell at the guy "hey!" His attention is off the victim giving them time to escape or kick the guys shins and run or what ever. If the guys going to come at me and the victim is safe I'd be gone. If the victim stayed the guy would probably either tell me to F off or come at my if he comes at me I back away slowly and try and get him to follow me as far away from the victim as possible hopefully to a well populated area. Now lets say hypothetically none of that is plausible then I don't get his attention and I put my head down and football tackle him. He'd be down and as I got up I would kick him in the head or knee him as I'm getting up. He would have dropped the knife which I kick out of reach and if hes not out cold I'd kick him again untill he was. Wait for the police to arrive.

Bear in mind thats a well thought out plan. If it really happened who knows how it would really go down. there are to many varibles.. maybe hes got a gun hidden somewhere maybe he wasnt being mugged but he had just subdued the mugger and you misinterpeted the whole situation. I'm tired of typing now so thats it.

Cowardly but effective? Helping someone like that is bravery in its own. How many people do you think would do that, honestly? I think you did the right thing.

There is a 5 foot 11 12 year old girl at my school. I think she takes the roids though cuz her arms are hairier than mine. :p. I don’t doubt his height, its his supposed strength, speed, and courage that make me a skeptic. But, stranger things have happened.

Acer….I don’t think you’ve ever seen, been in, or around a knife fight before. Knives are -not- clumsy, and people don’t just drop them when they get tackled. It’s not a movie. Baseball bats, pipes, bottles, chains, ext are clumsy weapons. A knife is a quick, close range weapon. It’s light and short, able to slash as well as stab. It’s not easy to disarm somebody of a knife without training, where as a bat or chain is something that -I- could take away from someone.

Also, the way this guy is supposedly built I doubt he could be easily tackled. Maybe if he hit his knees, but if you’ve ever done that while somebody is coming at you then you’d know they would fall on top of you.

As far as not having to carry a knife, you’re lucky. I wish I lived where you did. Naturally I don’t usually need to use a knife, and in fact I’ve only once pulled it out in my life. It’s not -that- bad out here. However, safety comes first. I also refuse to jaywalk down a busy street, and wont go to parties where people are drinking. I also run from fights. I think it’s stupid to go out looking for confrontation. I think it’s a tool to be used as a last resort. That’s just me.

All in all, I personally think (though I don’t know you.) that you would be slaughtered in such a situation. Remember all, this is life, not a movie or game. Also, Kage no bunshin is always a great way to go! :p.

I think your brave. But anything could have happened, so you're really lucky. As for the cowardly part, I don't really care cause there's nothing cowardly about trying to save someone. It's the mugger who's the coward. And hmmm.... ur 13 (or 14 now?) so i don't think knifes are for u? Like what Acer2110 said, my city is very safe too, so I'm a bit shocked at all this "must carry a knife when u go out" thing.
