!!BREAKING NEWS!! – NOWRA

Local junkie evades Nowra LAC/Highway Patrol officers on a Mountain bike then tries making a run for it but didn’t realise I was about to send the cunt for 10!!

NGL never in a million years did I think the Good ol Stop/Slow Stick through the Front spokes was actually going to work and was going to either throw a Cone at him or just slap the cunt off his bike with the Stop/Slow sign on the other end of the stick so I gave it a go not expecting a great outcome and here was the outcome! 🤣🤣🤣

Jewellery story stabbing, attempted defense with eye gouges and groin strikes

The victim is stabbed repeatedly. He used everything he had to defend himself: punches, kicks and throws, and attempted two eye gouges and two groin strikes.

None were effective -the assailant moved his head away when eye gouges attempted and blocked kicks to groin.

It should also be noted that although the victim was stabbed many times, he was still capable of fighting and managed to escape – neither person was incapacitated, and both were capable of continuing the fight.

Groin kick attempt 1. The offender lifts his knee and blocks the kick.
Eye gouge attempt 1. Unclear if defender was able to cause any harm. No apparent effect.
Groin kick attempt 2, seems to connect in some way but no effect
Eye gouge attempt 2. From this shot it looks like a finger may be completely embedded in the eye, though it is impossible to know for certain. No effect.

Leg lock used to control fight at basketball court

The black male leans forward, revealing his intention to attack as his posture has shifted to load up the punch. The white male immediately clinches and falls to the ground, pulling the other with him. He is obviously very confident on the ground and does not mind which position he initially ends up in, as long as it is on the ground.

The black male grabs the other in a head lock, which is a terrible idea against an experienced grappler as it allows them to take the back.

Others intervene for a second but the fight eventually ends with the white male threatening to destroy the leg of the black male, which is not a hollow threat as he is holding a heel hook.

Man threatens another with baton, gets knocked out

The man holding the baton made some errors:

  • Allowed his opponent to close the distance when he had a tool which needs more range.
  • Range can be managed by movement – he’s completely stationary.
  • Flat posture, straight back, very likely standing with knees locked straight, does not appear to be in any kind of stance which would prepare him to respond in the split second required to move, defend or attack. His opponent constantly adjusts.
  • Allowed opponent to grip his wrist. Difficult to swing baton effectively when grappling starts. The grip even from this position may allow opponent to stay off-centre when the baton swing comes.
  • Furtive glance made by opponent is a huge warning sign. He has already decided to attack at this point and is looking for witnesses, other enemies or allies which may factor in to his decision to go ahead.
  • Even if he decided to use the baton, it’s a poor weapon. Law enforcement use this as a method of pain compliance, and often need to move to other methods when it fails. Striking the legs is unlikely to instantly shatter kneecaps unless you’re very lucky/unlucky to hit that spot. You’re only starting the fight, not ending it. Swinging to the head would be a different matter.
  • Compare the above (pain compliance) to the punches thrown to the head (incapacitation).

Baton man seems to think intimidation is enough to keep him safe. The baton is like some kind of force field, everything else can be ignored.

From this position, when would he decide to use it? Once the fighting starts? Too late, too close. When the man fails to step back? This may be considered unjustified assault. Baton man then made a threat to seriously harm, which prompted an aggressive response. He put himself in a situation which is very difficult to win.

Knife disarm via punch to head and control on ground

Rather than reaching for the knife when it is drawn as many people tend to do, this security guard punches the man, and as they go to the ground he and controls the hand holding the knife. He extends the hand away from the body which prevents the man from reaching for it with the other hand. Bystanders step in and assist. Excellent instincts.
