Scanning youtube today I came accross two videos in quick succession where the attacker fake surrendered when the defender got the upper hand, then just re-attacked when the defender let up.
In this video the kid who was defending himself ended up getting stiches in his ear because the attacker bit him when he re-attacked.
In this one at the 18 second mark the attacker backs up then pulls a gun and re-attacks when the defender lets up
Perhaps I noticed it because I saw these videos by chance one after the other. Is this a common tactic?
Should we actually let up on an attacker if they appear to give up or just keep going to completely eliminate the threat?
