Q&A - Flipping the Bird
Maybe it,s just me,but if I was walking somewhere,and someone came up behind me with a wepon (gun,knife,ect).and beiing trained in martial arts,It is my right to defend myself,,,as my life is at risk..I would be concidered somewhat of a hero,if I sucseeded to aprehend this criminal. If I did,nt sucseed,,Yes I could be dead or injured,,but at the time,,the choices beiing???????
Now I am in a motor vehical,driving on a windy 100km/h double solid line hwy,with no passing lane for km,s,and another motor vehical(2500kg,s),,or worse,a semi trailer truck (15,000kg,s empty) Approches me to within a few feet, Now putting my life at risk,,LITERALLY,,
I as the vehical in front,that was following the law,am concider by the police to have Inapproprate actions,for simply flipping the driver behind the bird(display middle finger) as now I am causing roadrage.
The thing to do,is pull over,let him by,and take note of thier plate#.Beiing on the road 88hrs a week minimum,this list could get extramlly long by the end of the day,,Now making me look like a whiner,and at the same time,not beiing able to pull over safely for kms,leaving my life at jepordy the whole time,until safe to do so.
Now if we both stop,and a confrontation occurs,and I so much as deck this guy(as they were putting my life at risk) I now get charged with assult.
Beiing both wepons,weather gun knife motor vehical and having my life in just as much risk Either way.
Is this not a double standard,,,Or is it just me????
