0272 - Threat Responses

It is important to understand that your response to any given situation will be a personal choice based on your assessment of the circumstances. Just like anything in life, our response to violence must be balanced. We must consider the totality of the circumstances that we are immersed in at the time and choose a response that is appropriate for the particular circumstances. We must take into account the legal, ethical and moral consequences to our actions. Although these considerations are important, there will be little or no time to consider the consequences in the heat of the moment. Therefore it is important to consider these areas well in advance of your need to use force so that you can make some determinations of what is appropriate and justified. As long as innocent life is preserved and any use of force is justified, you made the right choice.
