years ago now back when I was like 20 years old.. 8 years ago... I was in Humboldt Tennessee, near the Arkansas border with west Memphis, not a long way from Memphis Tennessee.. I didn't realize just how high crime of an area that really is... It really is a fucking war zone. Anyway... I was walking across the field, to go to the walmart because it was nearby, to go pick up some food. All of a sudden, I seen 6 black males also in their early 20s.. approaching me from afar. I didn't think anything of it... so I kept on walking. Its a good thing that I decided a few seconds later, to take a little bit of a gallop... I turn around... now they're running... towards me. I happen to have an M4A1 carbine on me in my jacket. So I started walking again... I turn around, and they're walking again.... I Take a little bit of gallop again, and there they are... running towards me again. So at that point I knew they were coming at me... So I pull out the carbine, and get down one knee, and aim the carbine at the lead runner's chest... and I fire. I shot him in the chest, and then I shot another in the knee, stomach and chest. These are 5.56mm military bullets from General Dynamics. The remaining 4 run off. I called the police... It turns out, they were part of a Memphis gang, and they have a long criminal record, and they were wanted for murder. I got off on self defense.
