Only SWAT and Law Enforcers have the go to use rubber bullets, sand bags, and other non-leathal projectiles to subdue enraged peoples. He should have just talked to the manager and walked away from it, or got another ref to help take him down hand to hand and then call some cops in for support.
If i have to defend myself with a gun I would rather use a rubber bullet and be 'judged by nine than carried by six'. People are crazy and once you mix adrenaline, tesosterone, and markers firing projectiles at 200mph then it sounds like it could get awefully sticky before it takes the average response time of about 10-15min to save your butt when it only takes moment. Non and less lethal munitions are a much more practical alternative to self defense than a knife or real bullets.
The guys who wait for somone else to pull the trigger end up dead or severly hurt. Ask the guys in the body bags. If somone pulls a knife on me I wont want for them to stab me to disarm them, somone pulls a gun on me I wont wait for the bullet to leave the barrel before I pull a 'Matrix' and shoot them back. Somone aims thier marker at me with an intent to hurt me, then I wont wait for the wind to be knocked out of me to retaliate with minimal effciency.
If you are being attacked than i dont think you have much time to go get somone to hold your hand, not to mention to think straight.
Do I totally agree with his decision? Heck no. I think his animal instincts of 'the will to survive' are a bit stronger than a few bills.
Of course, to me it sounds like the guy was acting in self-defense but if he did it out of anger or somthing stupid then I dont condone it but I'm all for surviving.
