Don’t bring a hatchet to a gunfight? Maybe. Lucas County prosecutors talk self-defense rights after man stops hatchet attack
“I heard this lady screaming,” said one man who didn’t want to be identified. “She was saying, ‘Help me! He’s killing me! He’s killing me!'”
Benjamin Hand grabbed a gun and ran to investigate.
He found a man hitting a woman with a hatchet. She was bleeding from her arms and face.
The prosecutor they interview goes on at length, because the .gov HATES the idea of legal self-defense. (You mean you are NOT dependent on the government for every little thing? We can’t have that!) The neighbor they interview has no doubts that Mr. Hand’s actions were justified.
So what should he have done? Nothing, and watched the woman die? Call 911 and watch the woman die? Or take action and save a life from vicious attack?
