Agreed and Agreed. 100% and all the way around. I hope anyone here, if there IS anyone, who plays this "game" reads your words and mine, very well.
It may help them live longer.
Like you...If I see someone unable to defend themselves being beaten down, whether it be an elderly person, a housewife or a small child vs. multiple
very big ones? Well... The kid situation may be different..but maybe not, too.
Missouri law is very clear. Lethal force is covered as legitimate force if it's in defense of life *OR* belief that great bodily harm or injury will
be the outcome of what is happening. I'll leave out the other conditions that don't relate to this except for one that does. The laws here..as in
other states...do *NOT* limit that use of deadly force to SELF protection. It applies equally for justified action to defense of another person unable
to defend themselves. The standard doesn't change....still imminent threat of death or great bodily injury....but our law makes absolutely NO
requirement to so much as say "Hey...would you kindly stop killing him please"?
I don't know how a Jury might see it...but I'm not shouting a warning if multiple people are beating an old man to death. I'm NEXT to go down if
they get the advantage in any way. So....without being too cold about how I put this...the first one to fall won't even go out knowing I'd arrived
to see it. The next ones to fall won't have the time to react ....
...and they'll have committed suicide. Suicide by CCW carrier instead of suicide by cop, but it's suicide just the same. The moment they started
beating someone far beyond defending themselves? They chose suicide if cops don't get to them to arrest them first. That's as simple as life ever
