Have you seen this video:
Bottom line, the guy was probably unarmed, it is after all New York. He is being attacked by multiple assailants on motorcycles, who are chasing him. He has his wife and child in the car. He probably did not know what to do. If armed, start killing them. Either way, the vehicle is the first weapon, which he uses initially to get away. Once he gets stopped in traffic, he essentially does not want to let that happen. Find a way out, keep the vehicle moving (and the doors locked!), if that means reversing over them then so be it. That is life and death right there. Start killing them, with the vehicle or a firearm if you have one (which you should) until the threat goes away. In fact, just start killing them, get your family to safety, and keep killing them until they are all dead. Maybe kneecap a few of them, just to teach them a lesson. That’s how I feel about that.
Oh yea: where are the f#@king cops?
OK, for you pacifists out there, who disagree with my response of extreme violence, take a look at this video. This is how it can go down. In this case, the first mistake was driving into the funeral procession and then not getting away. Even though they were armed with limited ammunition they probably would not have gotten out on foot. The vital thing here would have been to try and keep the car moving. Once it was surrounded, with a magazine or two of 9mm, it would probably have not been enough even if they had aggressively fired into the crowd. Note: these are off duty soldiers, not special ops undercover guys. They are just in the wrong place at the wrong time, carrying issued self protection sidearms.
Why was the crowd so riled up? Because this (video below) had happened a few days before. A handgun and hand grenades failed to really keep this mob at bay. Watch as they chase him , while he fires a handgun and throws grenades. They eventually catch him (Loyalist Michael Stone) and the RUC show up and take him into custody before he would have been most likely killed. How about that for your SHTF planning?!
