Marcus Tullius Cicero, the Great Roman General said this:
'There exists a law, not written down anywhere, but inborn in our hearts; a law which comes to us not by training or custom or reading' a law which
has come to us not by theory but from practice, not by instruction but by natural instuition. I refer to the law which lays it down that, if our
lives are endangered by plots or violence or armed robbers or enemies, any and every method of protecting ourselves is morally right.'
This Law should already be written in your heart even if you are not aware of it. We should never take the right to use this law away from anyone.
Unfortunately, we are seeing in the world this right being questioned in many ways small and large. In schools, the victims of bullying are punished.
In the streets, people who successfully defend themselves are prosecuted by the Law of Hammurabi, which is a law based on the profit motive rather
than natural justice.
We need to ask ourselves, in OP, what would we have preferred to see happen if the woman was one of us? Would we have preferred to see her assaulted,
killed, whatever the perpetrator had in mind, or would we prefer the whole sorry mess ended as it did?
