WARNING: EXTREMELY GRAPHIC. NSFW Language as well. This one made me cringe, and is not for the faint of heart. This shows us the realities of an argument that escalates into attempted murder. There were many indicators that this was about to go bad, so pay attention to the lessons.
1. Alcohol can lead to terrible problems, so drink only in moderation. Drunk people are unpredictable and can be dangerous.
2. There was a major warning that this man missed, and it almost cost him his life. Watch the assailant and you can see that he has that hammer hidden behind his right leg. He keeps his right arm pinned to his side, which is a huge indicator that he is hiding some kind of weapon. Pay attention to any aggressor because they will often give off signs of aggression!
3. Despite all this, the victim lived. He took NINE hits to the head with a hammer and survived it. Details here: http://goo.gl/EglwwI. The human body is remarkably resilient. Even though he lived, he of course had serious injuries and as soon as he was hit the first time he was out of the fight and at the mercy of the attacker.
4. Once again, the Bystander Effect rears its ugly head. I am tired of talking about it. Help is NOT coming. Protect yourself.
Attitude. Skills. Plan.
