I got jumped by 10 guys at the mall yestirday. One guy punched me in the back of my head then all the others jumped in and started beating me up. I was scared for my life. They wernt stopping they kept punching and kicking me so i pulled my knife and they finally stopped but i didnt notice one of the girls they wefe with recorded everyrhing. They went and showed the secrity the videp of juat me pulling my knife. So the security was gonna call the cops. I explained what happeded but they just banned me from the mall. Im on probation so i was too acared to call the police. Now my dad is asking for the security footage and they qont coapperate with us. What should i do? Call the poilice? Will i get introble?
Any time you "pull a knife," you are risking arrest and prosecution for brandishing or, even worse, assault with a deadly weapon. Once the police get involved, you lose control of the outcome... and it could go very badly for you because you are on probation.
Tell Dad to stop arguing with the mall security people. It sounds like the mall is a dangerous place for you, anyway.
