Have you ever felt that your life was in danger or has someone threatened you?
Quite a few times actually. >=|
MS-13 "green lighted" me in 2002 after I arrested a member with some pull. The gang unit put a full court press on them and they withdrew it.
Wow thank God you were okay. You can always message me anywhere on here and I will be keeping you in prayer.
Yeah, someone in an SUV wafted across the center line on my drive home from work tonight. With their high beams on. In the pouring rain. I had to guess how wide the shoulder was and use it all to dodge.
Thank God you're okay
Well those are kind of two different things. When my car went in the ditch last year, I felt like my life was in danger. But I've never felt threatened by someone else.
I had a gun stuck in my ribs & fired over my head point blank.
It was 50 years ago but it's as vivid in my mind as yesterday.
What a horrific experience. I'm thankful you're okay too.
It made a lasting memory.
I also learned a valuable lesson about who to hang with.
It's good you learned from experience some people don't
Ex Navy....thought I was going to die several times.
You guys are tough. My sons were in the Navy and my son-in-law was a Marine. My other son who is also the duck fan was in the army.
Yes, all of it was while I was young and in California. Once I moved to Michigan things got a lot more normal.
We had a lot of people move up here to get away from LA
Many many times.
I have been shot at, stabbed, robbed, arrested and have been in more than my fair share of brawls with weapons and no weapons; just to name a few.
I look back on my past life and thank God that I have made it where I am today.
Well I think for your still like to did you turn your life around?
Sitting on a ledge over my guess, a 150 foot drop. Wind was blowing all around me and my friends as our feet dangled over the edge. My mind kept thinking about slipping off over the edge freaked me out a bit almost making me think I was. Mt. Climbing
Yes, but I've never had justification. I'm a really paranoid person, so to me, a car driving by me at night automatically equals a drive by shooting.
Yes more then once by the teachers aid who molested and by a friend who I told about it.
Successfully resisted a mugging when I was 14.
How did you do it?
Was riding my bike thru an alley behind a pub. Guy had a few plastic bags tied together into a choker-thing. He got it around my neck as I was going by & pulled me off backwards.
When I came up there was some slack in the choker & I managed to get out. I was a big 8th grader. 6'2" & athletic. Shoved him & bolted. Bike kept going after I was pulled off, so it was like 20 ft away. Grabbed it, carried it, hopped on & was gone.
Good for you!
Was in Morgan hill, California btw.
I had a student who told me he was going to kill me. I know the kid and I know he in no way meant it.
yep but luckily I had a gun
First gulf war...
Yes,Yes probably my personality.
Back In early 90s when aol first started, someone in a chatroom threatened to kill me. I was scared.
Yes. Not a good experience at all. :(
Yes, my 5th grade teacher. Also molested me. Sick freak.
I hope this person was appropriately prosecuted.
Sadly, no. He's still teaching, 7th grade now. I went to the vice principal, but I was told he was a good teacher and they wouldn't get rid of him. Emailed his new boss, too, but he's still there. :/
Ever thought about going to the authorities? Someone else could be suffering now.
Usually abusers, especially child molesters, brainwash their victims. It would be a good thing to come forward and say what this monster did to you. Nothing, I repeat absolutely nothing was your fault.
Unfortunately I know that. But, apparently nicjmartin already talk to some people about it. That is why I was encouraging her to take legal action. I know it can be hard and painful but some other girl could be in the same situation right now.
So sorry to hear that nicj. I think it would be wise to take legal action. I spoke up about my sexual abuse two weeks ago. PM me if you ever need any help.
Yes. Several times. Too painful to talk about. Glad it's all many years in my past.
Every person I've assisted in putting in prison,
While I was crazy. Seemed real enough.
One of the benefits of being a tall male that I try not to take for granted, I can't imagine how scary it must be to know somebody could overpower me and harm me in some way and I wouldn't be able to defend myself.
Abducted in Mexico at gunpoint when I was 18. Happy I'm here and lived to tell the tale.
I am too thank God you came out alive.
As weird as this sounds... thank alcohol. It's a long story, but youthful exuberance where ridiculously excessive drinking was concerned is what got us out alive.
That sounds like a very intriguing story. Again I say thank God.
Once in Mexico they tried to kidnap me. It was horrible.
Yeah, it can certainly be very dangerous that's for sure.
Where were you?
At the time of the abduction, we were outside of a bar/club in Cancun...within the tourist areas. In the end, they left us on the side of some dark road that definitely wasn't a part of the tourist area. How about you?
I was living in Mexico City. 3 guys tried to get me but I managed to get into my car an escape. I crashed against 2 parked cars and a garage door. They also shot a guard that as there. Fortunately, it was in his leg.
Wow! My story isn't nearly so glamorous. I think the plan was to rape us & who knows what after that. But, I got sick in the overcrowded car & they had no choice but to pull over. Curbside, I became violently ill & very unattractive I'm sure.
Meanwhile,my friend who was a drama queen to begin w/had already lost her freakin' mind. I think it was all way more than they could handle & they were worried about us drawing attention & them getting caught. So they left us on the side of the road.
Yes. Someone threatened to kill me one time I think they were dead serious.
Yes and it really is scary.
Yes, it is, very much so.
Me too. Once by a group of guys on a dark street and once by someone I knew. Both times were more than by just words.
I'm sorry both of you went through that. The threat to me was with a gun and it was someone I knew. I've never been threatened by a random stranger. I'm so sorry pirate. That had to be terrifying.
TY, was really bad. I'm here though.
I'm sorry for both your's too. Long stories, one I knew..kitchen knife, dragging me around,enraged,drunk. Said horrific things. Don't think on it much. Years ago.
I'm very glad you're here. :)
I'm glad you both are here, too! I had a gun pulled on me by a stranger, but gladly I came through.
