I carefully ease my way around the corner of an abandoned building, my 44 magnum ready to fire
I see my partner in a choke-hold with a gun pointed to his head
“Drop your gun” the criminal demands
“No” I say
The criminal says, “I’m not kidding”
I look at him and sternly say, “neither am I”
The criminal says “I mean it…I’ll shoot him”
I say, “okay, shoot him. He’s nothing to me…but while your bullet is going all the way through his brain, my bullet will be going all the way through yours…so, the way I see it, you have two choices. Die today or walk out of here and live to see tomorrow.”
The criminal asks me if I really expect him to believe that I will let him walk away
“We’ll meet again”, I tell him
He slowly points his gun at me.
So, what do you think happened?
