You said this:
Your proof clearly states there must be the threat of force, so your claim that Texas law justifies self defense "absent a direct threat to your life" is incorrect, unless you have further evidence from Texas law.Sec. 9.33. DEFENSE OF THIRD PERSON. A person is justified in using force or deadly force against another to protect a third person if:
(1) under the circumstances as the actor reasonably believes them to be, the actor would be justified under Section 9.31 or 9.32 in using force or deadly force to protect himself against the unlawful force or unlawful deadly force he reasonably believes to be threatening the third person he seeks to protect; and
(2) the actor reasonably believes that his intervention is immediately necessary to protect the third person.
Now you're trying to move goal posts or otherwise claim you were posting utter irrelevancies with absolutely no bearing on the case at hand.
"Unlawful force" would be unlawful force which is NOT "unlawful DEADLY force"....unlawful force or unlawful deadly force...
Thus, you can use deadly force to protect you, your property, or that of a third party from "unlawful force" which differs from "unlawful deadly force".
And so, my statement stands. I'll take that Thanks now.
(PS: Still waiting for that appearance on the other thread)
