Let the Threat Come to You: A Winning Strategy, Tactically and Legally :: 10/02/2021
In evaluating literally thousands of lethal force incidents involving armed citizens, I have concluded that one of the gravest mistakes made by otherwise well-meaning self-defenders is the pursuit of the threat. There is an innate human tendency to give chase to an adversary. This phenomenon is consistently witnessed in incidents of theft, where armed citizens will give chase to retrieve, or simply retaliate for, the theft of property, and such action is fraught with both tactical and legal peril. Beyond this, however, is a tendency among many to simply insert themselves into a potentially dangerous situation when there is absolutely no reason to do so.
