This video shows various improvised weapons I have found over the past year on my daily walk. Don’t assume vagrants are unarmed or harmless. As my colleague Chuck Haggard commented:
Every single “homeless” person I’ve ever arrested or had to pat down was carrying a knife, or knives. At minimum.
Someone who completely missed the point, no pun intended, was this YouTube common tater.
Or or [sic] just maybe Cary a knife / a gun if you are that worried you need a weapon and not use some random rusty screwdriver that probably won’t do shit
The slender 4″ shaft can easily penetrate a ribcage. While a pneumothorax https://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/pneumothorax/symptoms-causes/syc-20350367 is not an instantly fatal wound, it can definitely become one if not treated promptly.
Just because someone is a disgraceful vagabond doesn’t mean they can’t do something to you. You never know what will set them off.
They are not you.–the late William T. Aprill
And what they do might involve more than just a cream pie.
