Doesn't matter if the old guy started it. Self defense with threat of lethal force only works if you are acting in response to an immediate danger of serious bodily harm or death. You can't bring a gun to a shouting match. Force must match force. Else the defender becomes the aggressor in the eyes of the law. The young fella is likely in for some trouble.
Would that be “force must match force” like with Martin/Zimmerman?
I understand, on a certain level, what you are saying. It is possible to kill someone with only bare hands. Basically, what the old guy did was stop the argument.
I would love to sit on this jury.
“Force must match force.”
So your saying that a 90 year old granny cant pull her colt
python on an unarmed 200 pound obama supporter if she is
being threatened by him?
Unless you're a white hispanic being pummeled by an even more protected minority.
