Cops Are Calling It Self-defense

But they don’t get to make the final determination. Police: Fatal shooting of woman was self-defense.

An initial investigation, Williams says, has determined the woman was shot in self-defense. The case is expected to be presented to a grand jury as a possible justifiable homicide.

No arrests have been made.

Don’t Bring a Box-cutter to a Gunfight

And reporters need to learn who is, and who is not, a victim. Man injured in apparent self-defense shooting after woman attacked.

He pulled a box-cutter and slashed a woman half-a-dozen times. Then he turned on her boyfriend.

The boyfriend pulled out his gun and shot the victim three times.

Fulton said the shooting victim was taken by helicopter to Baptist South. The victim who was cut also went to a hospital and required about a hundred stitches.

It doesn’t say in the article, but it has the earmarks of a disgruntled ex-boyfriend being mad that she decided to live without him.

JusticeEven if prosecutors hate that. Augusta man acquitted of murder.

There was a “scuffle” at a basketball game. After the game, there was a confrontation.

Quarterman hit Burton so hard he broke and cracked bones that required surgery, defense attorney Ashanti Lilley told the jury. Burton was backing up but Quarterman kept advancing, kept punching and Burton fired two shots in self defense, Lilley said. Burton testified in his own defense this week, telling the jury that he was in fear for his life because of Quarterman’s friends, particularly Anthony Butler.

But despite all that, the prosecutor charged him, and had him held pending trial, for 2 years. It took the jury “several hours” to acquit.

And in more proof that the process is the punishment, he is still held, for charges from his time being incarcerated.

He Suffered a Failure of the Victim-selection Process

I guess he didn’t expect to be resisted. LaPlace store clerk shoots armed robber in neck.

The robbery occurred just before 9 a.m. on June 13 at a convenience store in the 400 block of Belle Terre Boulevard, according to the St. John the Baptist Parish Sheriff’s Office.

The guy who got shot was taken to a local hospital.

JusticeAnd they made this determination very quickly. Police: Homeowner will not be charged in intruder’s death.

The shooting happened on Friday. The homeowner woke to the sound of someone pounding on his door, and armed himself. When the intruder succeeded in breaking in, the homeowner defended himself.

Police said the homeowner will not be facing charges.

Self-defense in The People’s Republic of Chicago

I know this is late. I probably need to update my news feeds. Concealed carry holder kills man with gun.

A concealed-carry holder shot and killed someone who approached him with a gun May 27 in Little Village on the Southwest Side.

He shot the guy in the head, and it took him 3 days to die.

Self-defense is a human-right, and even in Chicago, it might be your legal right. (Though when this article was published, the investigation was still underway.)
