I also will not flame you or judge. You have admitted what you did was wrong of your own conscience. You have represented situation, as you saw it, throughly. You made us understand what was said and what was done. IT TAKES A VERY UPSTANDING, GOOD MAN TO ADMIT THEY ARE WRONG AND ACCEPT THE CONSEQUENCES. You did what you felt was right, no matter how wrong it may have been in the legal sense. You diffused a potentially dangerous situation with out using direct violence on someone. Congrats on being a man able to admit his mistakes and point out to "Monday Morning QB's" where you screwed up without them having to tell you.
