This is why law abiding citizens must carry loaded concealed firearms. However these ‘Knockout victims’ would have never had a chance to use their firearm. Walking in ‘groups’ with a ‘designated shooter,’ will detour this crime. Self-defense is Biblical.
The Lord Jesus was not a pacifist. He even admonished them to buy a weapon. “He said to them, ‘But now let the one who has a moneybag take it, and likewise a knapsack. And let the one who has no sword sell his cloak and buy one.” Luke 22:36
It’s perplexing to me, as to how so many professed Christians cannot understand the doctrine of the ‘total depravity’ of man. For “the heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked; Who can know it?” Jeremiah 17:9
Pastor Jesse Lee Peterson (a wonderful black man that I’ve met) said the following.
“America is the midst of an epidemic of racial mob violence and the media refuses to report it. In my book, “White Girl Bleed a Lot,” I documented hundreds of examples of black mob violence in more than 70 cities big and small throughout the country. Many of the episodes are on YouTube. I also documented how the media and public officials ignore, condone, excuse and even lie about this wave of lawlessness. Despite a growing mountain of evidence, some still deny this problem exists. (Curiously, the same people who deny the problem are always the first to explain it away.) So here are the links to racial mob violence throughout the country, following the organization of the chapters in my book: Some by city, some by theme, i.e. racial violence against Asians, gays, Jews, women and others. I followed up many of the links with phone calls or emails to confirm the racial nature of the attacks and lawlessness. Many of the individual links are definitive. Treat the others as clues that are part of an investigative package that help us determine the racial quality of the mayhem. And how public officials and media react to it.”

Side note: There is another concept that I learned while doing some advanced ‘building search’ training at the SureFire Institute. It’s called the ‘50/50 rule.’ This can also be applied to minimizing yourself as the potential target of a would-be knock-out victim. That 50/50 rule is ‘when searching for the suspect, spend 50% of your time looking for the suspect, and the other 50% of your time keeping the suspect from seeing you.’ The element of surprise works well for you.
