    That simply isn't true.
    Lethal force can usually be used to protect against and stop forcible felonies (like rape), and immanent great bodily harm.
    And then we have different standards under castle doctrines.
    So no, it isn't only justified in defense of lethal force.
    OK perhaps I was being a little too simplistic. In any event, I think it's hard to claim that justification for lethal force existed based on that video. You don't get to kill someone for grabbing your shirt and shoving you. And the point that you don't get to impose lethal force to prevent somebody for making off with your cigars is a valid one.

    Trayvon used to be a child. Yes, we know.

    All people start out as children. How old was he when he attacked Zimmerman ?

    And this was a young Jeffrey Dahmer.



    Was there a point to the Martin picture?

    Yes, I was listening to the show as it was happening. Reports are now that a dozen people say that IS the officer's story.

    What about for beating your eye socket in? Lethal?

    You're right, you wouldn't use lethal force if those are the sole actions during this incident. However, there is plenty of other specifics out there that are alleged to have taken place that you are leaving out.

    Could you elaborate? I'm open to that.
