    Pariah, you gotta let it go. You're letting "them" win by letting it take up so much psychic energy.

    I know it's tough, been there before.

    He probably ignored the request for a loan, has not stopped advising yet.

    What stops them from going to the police and getting you in jail? Then you give them more money over a tort claim?

    Just because someone steals from you does not give you the right to assault and batter them. Theft is a property crime and your life or physical well being were not placed in imminent danger as a result, leaving you with zero legal justification for using physical force with a weapon, let alone physical force.

    What if you had miscalculated and ended up hitting him in the head with the bat? That would have been using leathal force; you could have been charged with attempted homicide instead of A&B.

    You are lucky you were not arrested. If you were, and your case went to trial and I was on your jury, I would have voted to convict you. If you were not convicted, how much more than $3K do you think your legal expenses would have been?

    This was NOT an advantage play, you got lucky.

    People, youngsters, have a need to boast, act tough, act macho. It’s unlikely any adult AP would actually lose his cool. The ones who do, go on tilt and lose.
