Two women wave a man down for help, with one of them appearing to have some sort of medical issue. Watch what happened:

This is why I don’t help people, especially when I’m alone. It’s an easy way to lure someone into an ambush.

What did she hit him with?

    Divemedic · February 21, 2024 at 8:34 am

    Looks like she either stabbed or drugged him with a syringe.

This is one of the harder conversations I’ve had with my wife over the years. She is a fricking magnet for people in distress. Random people will stop her in parking lots and ask for help all the time, and she’ll try to help them! I’ve warned her repeatedly and she still feels like she needs to help others. Unbelievable that a woman who generally has a lot of common sense will throw it all out the window the minute some sketchy stranger asks for help.

Also gotten me some stares at church when discussing how Jesus wants you to help random people on the street and I’m like “what, Jesus wants me beaten up and mugged? Potentially murdered for the $5 in my pocket?” Yeah, that didn’t play out well. We no longer live in a high trust society and it’ll be long after my lifetime before we ever get back to that, if we ever do.

Years ago, I took a force on force training class. One of the scenarios was the damsel in distress with car trouble. I was the attempted victim, but I repeatedly refused to have a look at the car. Instead I stayed at distance and offered to call 911 for her. The instructor said that as long as that is what I would really do, it was the correct move. In the scenario, looking at the car would get you shanked.

There are a couple of other ones I really remember. One, sitting on a bus, a guy gets on, walks down the isle, reaches with both hands into his coat, draws two knives, and stabs two people sitting in their seat, in about 1 second. Also learned how difficult it was to try to draw a gun from a waistband holster in such a situation.

The other, is where I walked up behind the guy using the Redbox and had a gun at his head without him even noticing my approach. Don’t use a Redbox.

It depends on where you are. Walking down main street where I live? No problem. Walking down main street in New York or San Francisco or Oakland? No way.

    So “It can’t happen here” is your statement?

Currently I’m willing to help people (i.e. change a tire), but I make sure they don’t go out of my sight, don’t stand behind me, keep their distance, etc…if they don’t, I just stop helping, tell them I’ll call a cop to give them a hand, and leave.

I should probably revise my stance and just not waste my time…of course if it’s a woman (unless she looks 70), I already don’t stop. She doesn’t need me to help her. She should already be on the phone with her boyfriend/husband to deal with it.

Without context, calling b.s. on the video.
It zooms in, like no camera does except when it’s being shot for effect.

Total number of meds you could hit someone with that would have that effect, without killing someone: damned near nothing.
Any drug that’d do what was portrayed would probably also have resulted in his death in short order.
Change my mind.

This appears totally staged for clicks, not real.

If we could take psych patients down like this with an IM injection, we would. It doesn’t happen like this. Ever.

    Agree this looks fake. That looks like two red neck skanks assaulting a poor noble Wakandan Prince. It would be on the evening news if it were real. This enforces the narrative.

One thing that’s always bugged me, to the point of refusing to do business with some outfits, is how it is laid out – to transact business you have to stand at the counter with your back to the door. There was a PM dealer locally that I would not visit alone because he didn’t want to put a mirror on the wall behind him so whomever was standing at the counter could also see the front of the store, so unless I had someone to cover my back I wouldn’t walk into the place.

Banks are laid out the same way; it’s useful to consider that not only could a threat enter via the door, you have no idea who the person standing behind you in line actually is. And, do they have friends out in the parking lot….

Stop to help someone? Not gonna happen. I’ll call 911 as I drive by…..maybe. Answer a question from a walk-up stranger in a parking lot? NFW. That’s the default script for distraction crimes.

Do a search for Randy Greenawalt and Gary Tison. Also Gary’s sons Rick & Raymond.
They murdered a family that stopped to help them during a prison escape, (Marine Sargent Lyons family) which included blasting an infant into the mother’s abdomen and sticking a 12 gauge shotgun into the pussy of a 15 year old niece and pulling the trigger – blowing out one of her hips. She crawled to the shade of a bush and bled out.
(That bit of detail was provided to me from AZDPS officers I worked with)
This was in 1978.
I haven’t stopped to help ANYONE since. I’ll call the police if I see someone stranded but that’s about it.

Few years ago going down the hiway yes I pulled over but kept my distance and never left the vehicle while still running because my spidey sense went on alert. During short conversation I only let one get past the hood to a window and eyed my side mirrors for no sneaks. Got the hell outta there and wil never stop again.

I like to help people but that ruined it and the young lady with kids in the car looking a little destitute on the road who ran outta gas years before with lots of snow around that I went back for my gas can, well I hope her and people like her plan just a little better next time

    I learned that lesson myself, but only after trying to be the White Knight one time too many.
    Carry everywhere, don’t mix in crowds, don’t put your back to the entrance, and be prepared to defend yourself.
