If you intend to do harm to someone, like attack them with a crowbar, why hesitate and act as if you really dont intend to do harm. Its really a bitch move. Then they get shot and act as if they did not just try to do harm to the person that shot them. Its almost as if they are pretending, like a cry for help or some bs. I've always been all or nothing, if im going after someone with a weapon, Im not stopping till I fuck you up or you kill me.
Perhaps they have never suffered the consequences of their stupidity. I imagine people like this got away with stupid shit when they were children, like acted out violently and never reprimanded. Or puffed out their chest and barked at people but never got beat down.
