Look im all for peace, But these punks have NO regard for human life. The thug got off easy not having his head furnished to the cement. And any judge with half a brain and experience would laugh a lawsuit out of court in this case.
Personally, I would have destroyed the evidence. My word against a dead man (with a criminal record and a gun) who tried to kill me. What compassion this MMA fighter had for this scumbag. He surely could have snapped this dude in half in mere seconds. The fact that he didn't kill him is probably the smartest thing he did though.

Yeah, this whole thing is impossible since there is a gun ban in Chicago.

Just like you can't possibly buy illegal drugs in the US.

In fairness, I'd be worried that the mugger would have a buddy watching that would come over and put a slug in me once they saw me disarm the guy.

Some sort of crippling injury and then looking for further attack would be completely warranted.
