I love how the news and the police tell the story of a man that attempted murder. They never say anything that led up to this incident. They didn'tn say that Anthony had just went through a full day of cancer treatment. They didn't mention that the reason they were fighting is because they other people involved in this incident had robbed him of the drugs he was taking for CANCER. They hit him over the head with something. HE WAS DEFENDING HIMSELF. But because he's an ex-con......he gets arrested and charged. I pray that the truth comes out.

It doesn't matter what leads up to something, all that stuff is just excuses. If he's an ex con then he's already made bad choices. How come I can go through my entire life without being put in a situation where I have to defend myself from being hit over the head? These people put themselves into these situations with the choices they make in their lives.

You obviously are concerned enough to leave a comment. The truth is there is no such thing as self defense anymore. Violence is bad, yes, I think we all learned that before we entered kindergarten, but unfortunately the current trend is to criminalize any activity possible. The private prison industry is booming. If you'd like to know where your tax dollars are going take a look at how much they say it costs to feed ONE INMATE. The amount they come up with alone is enough to make you scratch your head, but like a good citizen I'm sure you have no problem with paying for it in all of your blind faith. Anyone that believes the system is fine is blithely unaware at how quickly it could turn on them. What a sad ordeal when someone has to learn this lesson. If you really believe this is all for your safety and freedom, then you are living in a bubble.

I'm sure my friend's 60 year old mother really deserved to be hit over the head with a hammer by a robber at work. By your logic, she did. They say there is no such thing as a stupid question, but pondering over why you have not been a victim of assault (as if the situation would always be in your control) disproves that old adage! You must be some new age junkie believing "like attracts like" or some crap with barely one foot in reality.

But keep on keepin on, I'm sure you're doin juuuuust fiiiiiiiine lol
