I remember running the 30 inch sprint in High School.

State Champion.

I could never manage endurance running. I also wimped out around the twenty inch mark. ;-)

Action is faster than reaction. On average, from a standing start, you can close a seven yard distance and attack faster than you can react to someone closing a seven yard distance and attacking. This will be an ugly lawsuit.

I've seen some of those close combat training videos where they pit a guy with a pistol against an unarmed attacker, or an attacker with a knife. If the guy with the gun doesn't start shooting early enough he gets torn up almost every time.

The question here should not be "why did Rankin shoot Chapman" but rather "why did Chapman feel the need to physically assault Rankin"
