    You can simply hold up your cell phone and take his picture or actually record the event. You may have to fight off new attacks from other thuggies but you can record those too, including the point where you come up with your concealed carry 40 cal Glock 27 loaded with 9 rounds of Buffalo Bore Heavy S&W+P 155gr Gold Dot ammo and watch him accelerate into the viaduct as you reload. What?
