In SA, most of the victims of violent crime, given the opportunity, would gladly give the criminals what they came for. They would choose to give everything they own to the criminals instead of loosing their loved one or the use of their own legs. The question being asked most of the time… They took his cellphone, but why did they have to kill him?
I would prefer to live with people that are peaceful and resolve their problems in a respectful manner.
But for some reason I am, as a woman, attracted to men that can stay calm and attack/ defend in the most effective and sufficient way possible. You need to have the mindset to protect yourself and your family. Hurt the attacker really bad – and if he is still a threat Kill him before he kills you.
