This thread is all about justifying your actions legally, morally and ethically in regard to defending yourself. One of us will post a video and you'll be asked to take on the role of one of the people in the clip. You will need to explain your actions, as if you are being questioned by the police. We will try to act as the other party's lawyer and find loopholes in your argument. In addition it may be a situation where one person's actions either escalated the situation, or settled the issue without a physical confrontation. We will look at how and why those actions, or body language had such an effect. Given the subject matter there will be some bad language, in addition to fighting, possibly with weapons and possibly bloodshed. That said if you do post a video please do try and find one that is suitable for MAP and do also post a warning. There are some horrendous clips on You Tube and they aren't really suitable. What we want from this thread is a greater understanding of how one's actions and words have such an effect. Up to this point we have people posting links to legal sites regarding what you can and can't do. This thread is about physically and verbally putting it into action.
