VIOLENCE BLOG #2 ROAD RAGE

Updated: Jun 11, 2019


VIOLENCE BLOG IS OF A SERIES OF STORIES THAT I WILL WRITE DESCRIBING PERSONAL EXPERIENCES AND FICTIONAL STORIES OF VIOLENCE AND AGGRESSIVE BEHAVIOR. THE OBJECTIVE IS TO PROVIDE SCENARIOS FOR INDIVIDUALS TO CONSIDER AND APPLY TO THEIR RESPECTIVE TRAINING REGIMES.


READER BEWARE: THESE SITUATIONS ARE DESCRIBED IN FULL DETAIL AND CONTAIN PROFANITY AND DESCRIPTIONS OF SEVERE VIOLENCE. THIS CONTENT IS FOR EDUCATIONAL PURPOSES ONLY.

I CAN NEITHER CONFIRM NOR DENY THAT THIS ACTUALLY HAPPENED. PLEASE READ ON FOR YOU ENTERTAINMENT AND TAKE FROM THE STORY WHAT YOU WILL. IT COULD BE COMPLETE FICTION.

A FEW YEARS AGO, I WAS PARKED IN A GAS STATION. I HAD PULLED IN AND FILLED UP MY GAS TANK AND WAS SITTING IN A PARKING SPACE, CHECKING MY EMAIL. AS ALWAYS, I WAS CAUTIOUS TO NOT ALLOW MY SMART PHONE TO COMPLETELY ROB ME OF MY SITUATIONAL AWARENESS. IT IS MY HABIT THAT WHILE PARKED AND SITTING IN THE DRIVER SEAT OF MY VEHICLE, I REMOVE THE SEAT BELT SO IF I NEED TO MOVE, GET OUT, ETC, IT IS NOT A HINDRANCE.


IN THIS INSTANCE, A VEHICLE PULLED UP VERY CLOSE TO MY 12 O'CLOCK AND THEN PROCEEDED TO BACK INTO THE ADJACENT PARKING SPACE. THERE WERE TWO OCCUPANTS OF THE VEHICLE, A WHITE MALE DRIVER AND A WHITE FEMALE FRONT PASSENGER. IT WAS SUMMER AND ALL OF US HAD OUR WINDOWS DOWN. I WAS WEARING A WHITE TANK TOP, TATTOOS AND MUSCLES EXPOSED. FOR NO APPARENT REASON, THE DRIVER OF THE VEHICLE, A SKINNY, TALL, AND ANXIOUS LOOKING WHITE MALE, PROCEEDED TO EXIT THE VEHICLE AND APPROACHED ME SITTING ON MY DRIVER SIDE.


HE WAS BEARDED AND DISHEVELED LOOKING. I NEW THAT THIS LOCATION WAS A REGULAR STOP FOR PATIENTS RELEASED FROM A NEARBY DRUG REHABILITATION "HOSPITAL" AND FOR INDIVIDUALS THAT ARE RELEASED FROM THE COUNTY CORRECTIONAL FACILITY. BOTH WERE WITHIN 0.4 MILES OF THIS LOCATION. (AS A PARAMEDIC, I HAD ACTUALLY RESUSCITATED WITH NARCAN A FEW INDIVIDUALS IN THE BATHROOM OF THIS GAS STATION). MY INITIAL THOUGHTS WERE THAT THIS GUY LOOKED LIKE A JUNKIE AND MAY HAVE JUST GOT RELEASED FROM EITHER ONE OF THESE TWO NEARBY LOCATIONS (HIS PRESUMED GIRLFRIEND COULD HAVE JUST PICKED HIM UP OR WHATEVER).


THIS GUY IS UP ON MY WINDOW FAST AND BECOMES IRATE, CURSING AND YELLING AT ME. I WAS SURPRISED AS I KNEW THAT I HAD DONE NOTHING TO PROVOKE HIM. NOW I KNOW THAT MANY EXPERTS AND PEOPLE WILL SAY TO NEVER GET OUT OF A CAR DURING A ROAD RAGE INCIDENT. I COMPLETELY DISAGREE. EVEN WITH MY SEAT BELT ON, IN MY SEDAN MODEL VEHICLE, I AM LITERALLY SITTING IN PERFECT POSITION FOR THIS GUY TO HIT ME. MY MOBILITY IS SEVERELY REDUCED UNLESS I THROW IT IN DRIVE AND FUCK OF. AND IF HE PULLS A WEAPON, I DO NOT HAVE THE ABILITY (DUE TO THE LACK OF MOBILITY) TO FOUL HIS DRAW OR COUNTER BEFORE HE CAN DEPLOY THE WEAPON.

ALTHOUGH I INITIALLY ALLOWED THIS DUDE TO RUN HIS MOUTH, I DID IN FACT DECIDE TO EXIT MY VEHICLE AND CONFRONT HIM. I CAN REMEMBER THAT I COULD HEAR HIS GIRLFRIEND YELLING AT HIM FROM WITHIN THEIR VEHICLE TO "STOP" AND "FORGET ABOUT HIM", ETC. WHEN I GOT OUT OF THE VEHICLE THE GUY BACKED UP TO APPROX 5 YARDS AND CONTINUED TO JAW AT ME. HIS HANDS WERE AT HIS SIDE AND HE WAS HIGHLY AGITATED. NOW AT EYE LEVEL WITH THIS CLOWN AND GIVEN MY BACKGROUND, TRAINING, AND EXPERIENCE, IT WAS MY OPINION THAT HE WAS HIGH AS A KITE, LIKELY ON SOME FORM OF STIMULANT. HE DID NOT IMPRESS ME PHYSICALLY BUT I KNEW FROM EXPERIENCE THAT SKINNY JUNKIES CAN THROW HANDS. HE WAS COVERED IN SHITTY TATTOOS AND HIS CLOTHING LOOKING SOILED. I ALSO CONSIDERED THE FACT THAT HE COULD HAVE HEPATITIS C OR HIV IF IN FACT HE WAS A USER. I HAVE HAD BLOOD SPIT IN MY FACE BEFORE AND IT IS NOT PLEASANT.


WE STOOD THERE IN THE PARKING LOT FOR A MINUTE OR SO AND WE JAWED BACK AND FORTH, AT THIS POINT, THE THE GIRLFRIEND WAS STILL IN THE VEHICLE, SHRIEKING LIKE A BUFFOON AT MY APPROX 6 O'CLOCK. I CONSCIOUSLY MOVED TO A POSITION WHERE I COULD HAVE BOTH OF THEM IN SIGHT WHILE STILL REMAINING CLOSE TO MY VEHICLE. I ALSO OBSERVED MY BACKSTOP AND WITNESSES IN THE AREA. MANY PEOPLE AT THE GAS STATION WERE BEGINNING TO TAKE NOTICE OF THE COMMOTION AND I ALSO NOTICED MULTIPLE CCTV CAMERAS LOCATED NEAR THE GAS PUMPS AND THE STORE ITSELF. MY JUDGMENT WERE THAT THE CAMERAS LIKELY DID NOT COVER OR IF AT ALL, COVERED POORLY, THE AREA OF THE FAR PARKING LOT THAT I WAS CURRENTLY IN.


ANOTHER THOUGHT THAT CAME TO MIND WAS THAT THE LOCAL POLICE STATION WAS NEARLY ACROSS THE STREET. THEIR RESPONSE WOULD BE FAST AND I DID NOT FEEL LIKE GETTING DETAINED.


SUDDENLY, THE GUY YELLED AT HIS GIRLFRIEND TO "CALL THE COPS" AND THEN HE MADE A FURTIVE MOVEMENT TOWARDS ME WHICH I THOUGHT WAS STRANGE. HE ABRUPTLY STOPPED A FEW FEET AWAY FROM ME. I HAD ENOUGH OF HIS BULLSHIT. HIS MOVEMENT TOWARDS ME WAS QUICK AND AGGRESSIVE WHICH GOT MY BLOOD UP. INSTINCTIVELY, I HIT HIM SQUARE IN THE FACE WITH A JAB AND CROSS THAT CAME FROM MY HIP LEVEL. I THEM SAT HIM DOWN SHARPLY WITH A FORWARD DRIVE LEFT AND RIGHT HOOK. HE WAS NOT UNCONSCIOUS BUT WAS STUNNED TO SAY THE LEAST AS I SAY BLOOD FROM HIS NOSE AND MOUTH.


HE DID NOT ATTEMPT TO GET UP, HE JUST SAT THERE IN THE PARKING LOT. AT THIS POINT HIS GIRLFRIEND WAS SCREAMING AND I WAS CONCERNED SHE WAS GOING TO GET OUT OF THE VEHICLE. I ALSO WAS CONCERNED THAT SHE MAY HAVE A WEAPON IN THE VEHICLE. AGAIN, CHECKING MY "BACKSTOP", I COULD SEE EVEN MORE PEOPLE TAKING NOTICE OF THE RUCKUS AND MY THOUGHTS RETURNED TO POLICE INVOLVEMENT.


I GOT IN MY VEHICLE AND LEFT.
