    By the defense attorney's logic; I trained kickboxing years before, and post on Bullshido, therefore I pulled him into the apartment rather than him forcing his way in (even though he was unhurt).

    I wasn't in trouble. Never been arrested, or even ticketed. So anyway, guy beat the case. He still threatens me, from time to time, When he sees me around, but makes no move.

    Situational awareness: It's well important innit?

    My original thought for the day: Lawyers really suck ass sometimes.

    Before anyone else says it: Yeah, I get that it's the lawyer's job -- adversarial system of justice, yada, yada. Fine. Sometimes the system sucks ass, then.
