|man saved a woman life who was being beaten to death|
The night in the city I had just arrive in town on a business trip for the company I suppose to work for a sales rep, the ride here on bus had give me out , I had been up to long on the night before , and then having to take a late bus into Ohio never help my situation, most cities that I arrived at this late has few people on the main streets, tonight was no different. I was to meet a man early the next morning at a given address and location, getting a cab this late to take me to the nearest hotel location had become difficult , so I decided to walk and find the nearest hotel on foot, I knew the danger in cites of walking late at night , but to despite this I thought I would chance it anyway it being almost three am surely all the gangs or robbers were asleep , I had gotten maybe four or five blocks and I heard a woman scream from a vacant parking lot, looking off to my left I see four men and it seems the four are beating up a woman she is screaming bloody murder and here I watching these brutish men taking turns beating her, so with being and x marine I would take it upon my self to stop this if I could, but what chance would I have with four quiet large men, but what the heck I could not pass by and her being beat to death, she was trying to get away from them , and one kept running and dragging her back for more beating, I hurried down into the parking lot hoping someone had passed in a car and seen what was happing and maybe called the police, upon getting close they four acknowledge me coming and the quiet beating for a moment , and the biggest one was well tattooed , what are you men doing ?beating this woman to death I said, listen Mr the biggest one said you better be on your way or you will get some of what she is getting , he pulls out a bright switch blade knife and open the blade, while he is staring at me the others are still beating on the woman, I shouted stop now real loud and I told the big tattooed man that if they never stopped now that I would be forced to take action. He looks at me and said your no threat to us mr get gone he said and looked at me with anger in his eyes, I pulled my bright thirty eight special from the back of my belt and shot near where the men were standing , that got their attention fast , let her up and let her come to me, or I will shoot and cripple all four of you, I will shoot your all not to kill you but to cripple you I swear I will , then one of them pulled a gun from his front belt line, and was about to point it at me, dude you point that gun at me and just give me a reason to kill you in self defense , drop the gun I told him and he seen something in my eyes that told him I meant business, the bleeding woman is allowed to come to me and I told them that I was going to count to ten and if they was still here I was going to cripple ever last one of them, I told the one that had laid the gun down to pick it up and empty the shell from it and to turn all his pockets inside out that I knew he was carrying not shells but what was in the gun, he did as I requested, and told him to take the pistol with him but not to think about the bullets, they left and the biggest of them told me that this isn't over we will get you before you leave this town , we know that face and we will get you he promised, get out of here I tell them before I lose my temper, and they all ran away and vanished in the city, the bleeding woman was barely able to talk and I new if I never got her help she would bleed to death they had not only beat her but she was cut shallow like and was bleeding bad, I took my undershirt off and bound her worse wounds and told her to set on the curb while I flagged someone down to call for and ambulance, I managed to flag a late night motorist down and it was hard to get anyone to stop this late and it dark, but one good lady stopped , when I showed her my badge she rolled down the window, so you're a federal Marshall what on earth is wrong how can I help , she asked, a woman has been beaten almost to her death just down a little way in that parking lot and she laying down beside the curb and she bleeding bad please go find a phone and give this street and get her and ambulance fast, ok the woman said and speed away, I went back and stayed with the poor beaten woman and tried to keep her calm, I tell her that medical help is on the way, and she said bye the way who are you, well lady I am a special agent a federal Marshall on special assignment in this city , posing as a business man , and I just got into town and could not hail a taxi and decided to walk to locate a place to sleep tonight, then the woman said thank God for the lousy taxi service in this town or I would be dead , lady I don't know why those men was trying to kill you and I want ask you that question, , but what ever your doing to cause that to happen to you I believe I stop before you are killed, I am going to do that for sure she said as the local police and ambulance arrived, just before they put her on a stretcher I whispered to her I think God has been looking out for you tonight , she said yes I believe that is true, thank so much Mr she repeated and I never got your name she asked ?. It George Frazier , your going to be alright honey I tell the wounded woman take it easy and get better I tell her as they are pushing her into the back of the ambulance, I will try she said low like and wave me a good bye, we should all respect the men and woman that wear the uniform of police agencies , that tries hard to keep our cities and street safe and a lot of time understaffed , sometimes I think we all forget the sacrifice that they make and the dangers they face is all the name of peace and safely , many have give the supreme sacrifice their lives ....the end Tweet
