    The criminal doesn't care if he kills you, shouldn't you care about protecting yoir life?

    The individual you are questioning believes the murderer deserves more rights than the victim. He believes that someone trying to kill you deserves the right to kill you and live.

    Actually, he is saying both should live, only he doesn't understand that when faced with the attack police can't run like he would. Is that the world he wants to live in? One where police run from criminals rather than one where police stop criminals?

    Is death an acceptable response to extreme threats to you then?

    Someone in THE COMMISSION of a MURDER is not "accused". They are subject to ZERO constitutional rights when IN THE COMMISSION of a murder. I've cited the section code of federal law for you like 3 times. Either you start reading THE LAW, or learn it when you get to college.

    There's a reason people can defend themselves with lethal force. There's a REASON Wilson is not EVEN indicted. You have no idea what you're talking about.
    Constitutional rights are the foundation of legal rights. I don't find any support for how the two conflicting rights can exist based on the Constitution.

    Yes. I encourage everyone to try and protect their lives. Killing other people is not the best means for protecting your own life. It's the best means for killing other people.

    Police have technology, numbers, strength, and experience on their side. I expect the police to be able to use these to supplement them when engaging potential criminals in place of simply shooting them.

    We need to dissuade lethal answers and increase prevention.
    And, what is your detailed prevention plan...............

    Death should be avoided. Extreme threats should be prevented.

    I cited law, you are just babbling and making up lies.

    Thanks for showing your ignorance on the subject and I really do hope you get educated on it. Law is a very interesting topic especially when you know it. :-)

    As an individual.... I cannot change the desire of another to murder me.

    I CAN change my response to that.... and despite your ideals that Murderers deserve more rights than victims.... my response is still to defend myself with the use of lethal force (if necessary).
