There have been some threads on violence here and always looking for tips to prevent it as I hit the streets often. The last troublemaker I showed him no fear and got the police and he took a ride to jail in a police car. Others I have showed no fear. I only walk on the streets around many people and only in daylight. Always have my phone as well. I try not to antagonize homosexuals or others as all sins lead to hell and the false teacher will have a hotter hell than the homosexual. What other tips to prevent violence and my safety? Once I spoke to a person in self defense the way Jack Reacher did to a thug in that movie and he backed off. Tried to intimidate me and it did not work. Jesus did say to have a sword and did encourage self-defense. I am not looking for trouble but people on the streets do not always like evangelists.
