What is going on in this area? Wow, the violence is escalating at a pace that's going to start scaring not only the tourists from Orlando, but all the decent people as well. Time to start getting tough and keep the criminals in jail!

What is this city and our country in general coming to? Better yet, how do we protect our people? The death penalty has never crossed this deranged man's mind. It is a reactive solution, not a proactive one.

How can one relatively short man stab a woman to death with a pocket knife while a dozen people watch and do nothing, other than one person chasing the guy out of the restaurant? Someone couldn't have picked up a steak knife or hurled a plate at the man? Or were all the people who witnessed this tourists, shocked by Orlando's lawless behavior? Fight back, people!!

The crime probably happened so fast that most of the witnesses were too shocked to react faster. The man was probably in the lobby area waiting for the right moment...Pray for the womans family and pray for Orlando's deteriorating future....by building the big venues, funded mostly by property tax payers, "our leaders" are disguising governments real duty to its citizens....protection!!! Just wait until we see the criminal background of this idiot published....they'll be plenty of it!!!

The T.V. web sites really will describe the assailant...the Orlando Sentinel hardly ever describes the assailant. Thats why I go to the T.V. web sites for criminal descriptions. The Sentinel is losing its "web base" because of this
forcing its readers to go to other web sites.

Ain't that the truth, now? A bunch of whimps in there eating. Geeeeez. All of them could of clobbered that little dude. I think people are just too afraid to do anything, or perhaps too shocked. What a shame. A lot of women that have restraining orders on their idiot, end up getting killed..... by their idiot.

maybe those in Law Enforcement can answer this question... I have a gun permit and carry nearly everywhere---if I was a witness to something like this would I get in trouble for shooting the guy who was stabbing the woman? would I get arrested on the spot? what would be the worst and best case scenarios someone who rose to defend this poor woman could expect to face?

No you can protect yourself or anyone else from bodily harm. You just can't "out gun" them too badly.

Knife vs Gun I suspect you would be fine - both deadly weapons.

IANAL so your results may vary...

No, given the facts that are listed here you would not be arrested as long as you had the gun legally.(since you said you had a permit, as do I, you SHOULD not be legally insane or a convicted felon).

My case was sent to a grand jury and I was "no billed". Because of my background, I did not bother to even get a lawyer. I was out some time filling out reports/statements and that was all.

To you "Supermen" I would like to see you assess the situation and react within seconds.
