    diagraming that sentence finds a subject "you" missing in action

    Mayhaps:

    If a mugger orders, "Empty your Pockets"

    So we're just to assume that the mugger is somehow justifying the use of deadly force?

    Great photo composition, Oleg!

    But the wording, well...

    :confused:

    Yes, since muggings are normally done under threat of deadly force.

    I guess I'm just a little leery, as use of deadly force solely to protect property is very rarely acceptable in the eyes of the law. If your mugger ends up armed with nothing more than a pointy finger in his pocket, you're going to have some 'splaining to do :)

    :banghead: :banghead:

    A mugging is an act of violence. It's no longer about property at that point. What, do I have to wait until he shoots or stabs me before I can protect myself and my family? Do I have to ask, "mister mugger, is that your finger or a gun?".

    Great poster Oleg. If horizontal space is a problem for the wording you might try this:

    If a mugger says "Empty Your Pockets"

    Those grips are stunning. What kind of wood is that?

    That particular photo deserves to be in an ad campaign for the pistol.

    Oleg,

    It could be read as subornation of homicide. Which could land you in a whole heap of trouble in a couple of ways I can think of.

    Which we wouldn't want! ;)

    The muzzle blast alone would probably set the mugger on fire. :p

    Nice pocket gun photo, Oleg.

    reminds me of...

    Someone else did a cute Photoshop pic at one point of some sweet young thing stuck in a broken down car in the 'hood. As the gang members were closing in to presumably rob/rape/kill her, tire irons and chains in hand, the caption says: "Got Glock?"

    Of course with the stylized G's.

    It was great. Wish I had a copy handy to post. Gaston and crew should use this as ad-copy.

    I like it. Of course, the idea of killing someone (even in self defense) will always offend some people. That doesn't mean that I (or you) should care about those people's opinions...

    Get a clue, people!!! MUGGING is slang for and by definition ARMED robbery. Whether or not he is actually armed is COMPLETELY immaterial. If he has convinced you that he is armed, then in the eyes of the law - HE IS ARMED and an armed response is entirely appropriate. Takin' out the trash. Happy trails.

    The english imperative (i.e., 'give') carries an implied second person subject.

    You gaurantee that I won't get killed, and reimburse me, and I'll bend over for the mugger. If not, he should be met with heavy resistance. :)

    Mugging = robbery. Robbery = theft accomplished through the actual use of or threat of force.

    I like the pic.

    Mugging involves threatening force in order to coerce valuables from a person(s).

    The act of mugging justifies using whatever response is necessary to eliminate the threat.

    Some muggers are out for property. Others will kill you to avoid jail. All threaten violence or murder in order to achieve victim compliance.

    Act accordingly.
