How do you feel about the quote by the Stanislaus County Sheriff’s Department’s spokesman at the very end of the piece?
“It sounds like there was nothing anyone could have done.”
I’m reminded of eleven-year-old Xochil Garcia, a brave little girl who rejected the idea that there was nothing she could have done to stop a 6’2″ attacker. If more of the adult witnesses who outnumbered the monstrous Sergio Casian Aguiar had adopted Xochil’s attitude, an innocent two-year-old boy might still be alive today.
First rule for instilling a culture of self-defense: Be prepared.
