Two things. One, the object can be seen as the extension of the person and an act upon them, and two, laws vary wildly between states and there is such a thing as reasonable force and reasonable use of said force.Fieldy409 said:What counts as assault and battery over there is pretty surprising, if you touch an object a person is holding, not even the person you can be considered guilty of assault and battery, then they get to defend themselves with a gun
Which is a major part of why warning shots are effectively illegal basically everywhere. Because you're intentionally using lethal force and sending a shot flying where it can just as easily hit someone else, and it is seen as evidence that lethal force was not actually required for the situation. Laws are strange.and theres no place you can really shoot a person reliably where they arent at risk of bleeding to death.
You can, but only in a handful of areas. It's sad, because people being able to just beat the shit out of each other in a more moderated fashion can really solve a lot of the crap caused by letting shit just build up. Give two people some gloves and let them beat the shit out of each other.Too bad people can't just punch each other when theres a dispute like they used to.
To what I can gather, the other person was actually in a car. The problem with this entire case is that there is so little actual fact as to what happened, and too much opinion regarding the aftermath.This case in particular, also she was 5 months pregnant which makes me wonder, did they really need to shoot her to defend theirselves, or could they just have jogged away at a light pace?
