Most Deadly Weapon!

Shod feet, the most deadly weapon!
From a friend close to this story:
"A teenage boy was beaten to death, in public, by a gang of thugs in Chicago last week. Much of the attack was recorded on video. The murder took less than a minute.
Once again, we see how absolutely lethal are kicks to the head of a downed victim, particularly in the context of multiple assailants.
Although the initial impact that sent the victim to the ground was inflicted via a board or club or some kind, fatal damage was subsequently inflicted by the shod feet of the assailants.
This format of attack is common, and is far more dangerous than is realized by most. Fatal head-injury can be easily inflicted within seconds. Head trauma is extremely dangerous, and, due to the enclosed nature of the cranium, swelling of the brain will likely exacerbate injury."
Comment: From our perspective, it is imperative that, during such an attack, we avoid being rendered unconscious. Once on the ground, we must protect our head from multiple kicks and other blows, employing lethal force when necessary, and regain upright footing as rapidly as possible.
When your head is in contact with a solid object, blows directed at it are infinitely more injurious than when you are upright,, and your head is free to move with the blow.
Protect you head. It's the only one you have!
