"I used to roll the dice; see the fear in my enemies' eyes... listen as the crowd would sing, 'now the old king is dead, Long Live the King.'.."

Legally, "homicide" is any death of another person caused by one's actions. It includes "negligent homicide" which is not intentional and "justifiable homicide" which is not illegal.
That's the trouble with using dictionaries to find legal definitions of words.
Its not like an assailant negotiates a contract with you and you know to what level you are about to be assaulted. If someone sets out to cause me bodily harm of any nature, in the words of Marian Cobretti...Im going to "use everything I have" to bring about a quick fast and in a hurry resolution in my favor. If my family or a woman or children is at risk? Forget about it. Lethal force would be the least of the assailants concern. And no...thats not meant to sound all 'internet tough guy' like. Im just sayin...
Deadly force is justified any time you find your life in a condition of immediate, clear, and present, danger.
Rape? Only a true moron would argue that it isn't such a condition.
At one time in this country, rape was punishable by death. And it should be.

Rape is very serious, and I agree that it should have the Death Penalty attached to it for clear cut "Attacker Rape" or whatever you want to call it. Date rape or rape where they started and then she wants to stop and he doesn't stop, as bad as that is, no DP. Just a long prison sentence where they get to be the raped.
