POTD: Self-Defense Requires Reasonable, Not Perfect Decisions

Ever wonder how to get yourself shot and killed by police? It’s not as difficult as you might think. Step 1: Present yourself as a reasonably perceived imminent deadly force threat. Step 2: Wait for loud noises, flashes. And let’s not forget the post-mortem Step 3: Family files multi-million dollar §1983 Federal civil suit against the police department, hoping that political pressure from the usual racial grievance industrial complex will induce the local pols to …

POTD: More Politically-motivated Attacks on Self-Defense Law

It’s become a standard propaganda technique of the modern racial grievance industrial complex to target self-defense law for particularly intense hate-based attacks. This is most notable in their attacks on “Stand-Your-Ground,” a term that they’ve sought to make, and with some success, synonymous with “RACIST!!11!!” These efforts are not limited to “Stand-Your-Ground,” however, but rather are broadly applied to generally constrain the scope of conduct that qualifies as lawful self-defense, and thus deemed free of …

COTW: Beating An Unconscious “Aggressor” Is Not Self-Defense

In this Case of the Week we take a look at a bar fight out of Oshkosh WI that left one of the combatants dead and the other charged with first-degree murder and arguing desperately for self-defense immunity in order to avoid prosecution. The facts here are as reported in the Des Moines Register. [UPDATE:  On Monday, February 4, 2019, a jury found the defendant in this case, Rodney Henricksen, guilty of second-degree murder.] [NOTE:  …

POTD: 7th Anniversary of Trayvon Martin’s Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day

Hey folks, This week’s Post of the Day notes that today is the 7th Anniversary of Trayvon Martin’s terrible, horrible, no good, very bad day:  the day that Trayvon failed in his effort to murder or maim George Zimmerman, the day that would prove to be Trayvon’s last because of extremely poor victim selection skills and a 9mm round to the heart. But mostly the 9mm round to the heart. Having been deeply involved in this case …

POTD: When Felony Murder Isn’t Felony Murder

Today’s Post of the Day involves a use-of-force case out of Indianapolis (hosting the NRA Annual Meeting in just a couple of months, say hello if you see me there!). The “journalist” who wrote this post appears confounded by the relatively straightforward application of Indiana self-defense law, which is, of course, the norm. Unfortunately, Chief Trial Deputy at the relevant prosecutor’s office also grossly misunderstands Indiana self-defense law, according to his quote in the news …
