Have you ever felt that your life was in danger or has someone threatened you?
Abducted in Mexico at gunpoint when I was 18. Happy I'm here and lived to tell the tale.
Once in Mexico they tried to kidnap me. It was horrible.
First gulf war...
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.
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.
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.
Every person I've assisted in putting in prison,
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.
I am too thank God you came out alive.
Yes and it really is scary.
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.
Ex Navy....thought I was going to die several times.
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.
Yes, it is, very much so.
yep but luckily I had a gun
I'm glad you both are here, too! I had a gun pulled on me by a stranger, but gladly I came through.
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.
That sounds like a very intriguing story. Again I say thank God.
I'm very glad you're here. :)
Yes. Several times. Too painful to talk about. Glad it's all many years in my past.
I hope this person was appropriately prosecuted.
Yes, all of it was while I was young and in California. Once I moved to Michigan things got a lot more normal.
It made a lasting memory.
I also learned a valuable lesson about who to hang with.
Back In early 90s when aol first started, someone in a chatroom threatened to kill me. I was scared.
Yes. Someone threatened to kill me one time I think they were dead serious.
Yes,Yes probably my personality.
It's good you learned from experience some people don't
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.
TY, was really bad. I'm here though.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Yes more then once by the teachers aid who molested and by a friend who I told about it.
While I was crazy. Seemed real enough.
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
Wow thank God you were okay. You can always message me anywhere on here and I will be keeping you in prayer.
What a horrific experience. I'm thankful you're okay too.
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.
We had a lot of people move up here to get away from LA
Yes. Not a good experience at all. :(
Was in Morgan hill, California btw.
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.
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. :/
Where were you?
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.
