    I do not believe in proportional force. If someone is attacking you, you should be allowed to do whatever it takes to make them stop.

    IIrc, it's already such that if you have a reasonable fear that your life is in danger then you can commit homicide to save yourself.
    I may be wrong.

    Re: Assult and Rape, does it justify deadly force?

    I voted other, since to me it depends on the circumstances. But under some circumstances, then yes, I believe that the use of deadly force is justified to prevent or stop an assault or rape.

    Re: Assult and Rape, does it justify deadly force?

    No one has the right to force him or herself on you. As such, you have every right to defend yourself especially against a rapist or someone who is attempting to sexually assaults you. Now, if in the process of defending yourself your assailant happens to fall and bump his/her head and dies...

    Oh, well... It's call "self-defense".

    Re: Assult and Rape, does it justify deadly force?

    I didn't see this thread, and started a new one with a bit of a dissertation on the use of deadly force in self-defense, both in general and against rape. If I'd known this thread was here, I would have posted it here.... well here's a link to it.

    Re: Assult and Rape, does it justify deadly force?

    Rape certainly justifies deadly force. As for assault...it depends on what kind of assault, how severe it is, and what the circumstances are.

    Thanks Goshin and like it was said in the other thread I find it extremely odd that anybody would water down rape in such away thats its merely a minor bruise???? Psychologically that seems unfit, cant imagine anybody looking at rape the same way they do as a drunken bar scuffle???

    Its mind blowing, like I said before IMO those people either have no female family members, are different psychologically wise or are sexual predators themselves??
