Ha, ha. Calling the police would be on those trying to take over not on the person not moving. Duhhh.

Letting someone complete their mission is a principle in Aikido but alas some like you think it means what you see it as and thus lack the reality of what it means. Unfortunate.

Comparing extreme killing situations with leading a group of idiots from one place is not comparable. lol.

Right...because the methods of the police would differ in that situation (nice one with the insulting language, too: it really helps to defuse hostile situations, that - just like aikido!).

Haha. Well, I think you'll find that in aikido, there is no mission - if you already have a mission, then you've failed to do aikido. [/pseudo-enlightened, egotistical voice]

...so you prattle on about the universal applicability of aikido principles to every possible situation...but I can't compare two different situations?
Right...
