    I was wondering, if you encountered that and he aimed that toy at you, are you within your rights to respond with force?

    the weapon looks real enough to considered a threat and dressed as he was, pointed in my direction I'd have to shoot. and then I'd go looking for the uncle

    Since it was Phoenix, I'm surprised he wasn't shot. I can see a person driving a car not stopping to shoot, but a pedistrian would have time and opportunity.

    Ignorant people. I can't believe the cop that showed up didn't have his gun out and a bead drawn on him.

    I can safely say he would not be successful with a stunt like that here. even guys with knives get shot.

    If I were the first responding cop, that man would be dead. Also, there is no guarantee that the cops will arrive with any kind of time frame. That is why citizens should be carrying and that is why that fool should have been dead long before the cops showed up.
