Self-Defense. Saad Alaiyadhi . First rls. Second rls. Knowledge issue . To what extent can killing someone for self defense be justified?. WOK. WOK-language. Definition
“Incriminal law, an affirmative defense (e.g., to a murder charge) alleging that the defendant used serious force necessarily for self-protection. The claim of self-defense must normally rely on a reasonable belief that the other party intended to inflict great bodily harm or death and that avoidance by retreating was impossible.” (merriam-webster)
This comes back to the fight or flight response, when the victim is being threatened they feel fear and according to the “fight or flight” response the victim would either run away or fight, and when a person does decide to fight he uses “self defense” as an excuse to harm the person threatening him.
