Exceptions to Justifiable Use of Deadly Force
We've written about when it is justifiable to use deadly force.
To quote from our own previous article:
While specific laws vary, it is generally accepted in every state in the U.S. that you have a right to defend yourself with lethal force. Whether you exercise this right legally is based on the "reasonable man" doctrine. In other words, would a reasonable person in the same situation be likely to use deadly force in self defense? What is considered reasonable?
