That's why I'm posting about it.
Two teens try to rob a 52 year old man of his moped by threatening him with a knife. He's former a former golden gloves boxer and convinces them otherwise. I didn't do a word count, but about half the article is why victims should never do this from the police and a "self-defense teacher" and something about spending resources to improve victim education to make sure they don't fight back.
It isn't a direct quote, but this is still the prize winning line from the journalist, if not the cop:
The University of Minnesota Police Department recommends compliance in situations like these, but that self defense is allowed, Sgt. Erik Stenemann said, even though fighting back can be dangerous. [emphasis added]
Nice of them to allow such things.
