Why disarming does NOT calm a situation

According to the probable cause statement, Campos pulled his SUV in front of Serbeck's vehicle and "slammed on [his] breaks." Campos then pointed a gun at Serbeck and told him to "put his hands up." But Serbeck was also armed.

"The fact that both parties had guns was not a particularly difficult aspect of the case," Cook said.

That's because the statement says Serbeck "exited his vehicle with his own firearm, holding it upside down by the barrel. He then placed the gun on the ground and kicked it away, disarming himself."

:fire::fire:

This situation definitely did not end well. The antis will claim that we should comply with an aggressor. Serbeck "complied" with the attacker and is now paralyzed.

I think Serbeck should have stayed in his vehicle, drawn and stayed as low as possible. Any better ideas?

Campos was probably going to fire on Serbeck regardless of what Serbeck did.

Campos was probably going to fire on Serbeck regardless of what Serbeck did. I think so too.

Serbeck was formally charged yesterday and the new information that he disarmed himself just makes it bizarre.
