How to handle implied threat situations?

Hi /k/ I just came back from a late outing where I got into an altercation. Some young idiot, a mexican machismo type, threatening to assault me because I said his GF was an idiot. We had a little standoff, he said something gay like, "Did you just call my girlfriend an idiot?" And started bearing down in me like he was going to hit me. The female is screaming in the background, "punch him, punch him! wreck that motherfricker!" Etc.

We were in a fairly isolated location. It was a familiar area but some new people acting out. I never brandished my weapon, I didn't even reach for it. I never said I was armed. After a few moments of staring each other down, I said "If you try, you will die. It's not worth it." Luckily he backed off. He might have assumed I was armed or he might have just backed down in prudence I'm not really sure.

I'm uncertain if I handled that correctly or what the ideal response was supposed to be. My conviction at the time was 100%. If he attacked, I was ready to use deadly force. Sincerely curious to hear other experiences that are similar where you were armed but didn't brandish.

I know this will probably get a lot of troll responses but I'm very sincere, I would like to hear your stories and constructive criticism even if harsh.

    Stop doing stupid shit. Stop calling random people idiots. Stop harassing the partners of random men. Stop doing all of this, especially, if you're armed.

      I don't think it's particularly relevant but she was completely out of control screaming at everybody, likely high. It's honestly the least relevant factor in the situation because the exact same situation could arise without the screaming woman. Many of these guys are just looking for an excuse to get in a fight and many of their women are encouraging it because they get off on it.

                my comment was more about the guy punching you for saying mean words. while there definitely are people who would be fine getting cuffed if it meant he defended m'lady's honor, most people would not find it a good trade, and thus, wouldn't punch you just for words if there was a cop around. without a cop around, he could punch you and run off and wouldn't face any consequences

                I mean, the consequences are that he could get shot to death. He might have made that calculation just the same way he would have if a cop was there. What's the point of carrying if you can't prevent your face from being bashed in? What's the point of stand-your-ground laws if you can't defend yourself from some violent beaner?

                Christ teaches us to forgive and turn the other cheek. If apology causes him to then escalate you have an easier time stating how you tried deescalation but it was not enough. Your goal should always be to deescalate as much as possible, not find reasons to shoot degens when you can. If you fit in the latter please do us all a favor and sell your guns.

              If the other guy is going around assaulting random people who call his idiot gf an idiot, and de-escalation means he DOESN'T get shot, then I don't see a need to de-escalate. It's not about self-defense at that point (tho you're better off arguing that one in court) - it's pest control.

Your entire complaint about the little guy getting up in your business was him being machismo, but atleast he was defending his woman (even if she didn't deserve it). And you think it's weak to "lose face" when you put yourself in that situation?

You'd expect people living in such a place to be smart enough to keep their head down until they can improve their lot, not get into chest-thumping face-saving nonsense encounters that you then expect people online to congratulate you for.

        Do you have a source or any kind of background for this claim? Because as far as I know, if somebody attacks you it's basically game over. Assaults are considered to be deadly force and you can defend with proportional force.

          Look up "fighting words and self defense". Other states might use a different phrase than "fighting words". Generally you can't bait someone in to assaulting you so you can shoot them.

          If you were to say, call a black person the N word and then they assaulted you, you can't just shoot them. You started the encounter, so you're expected to leave in that circumstance, or at least try to leave. If you've disengaged from the fight but are pursued and assaulted, you may have reclaimed the right to claim self defense. Some places require you to state to the attacker that you don't want the fight you initiated and you are backing down.

          Also things will swing in your favor again if you say, called a black person the N word and then that black person pulls at a gun and points it at you. Yeah you started the encounter, but they went to deadly force and did not respond proportionally.

          Again there is a lot of "may" and "ifs" in this kind of thing. It's messy and will never look good for you if you baited someone in to attacking you. The moment you are the initiator in an encounter, your right to claim self defense becomes a massive grey area and you're likely going to get charged and have to go through a lengthy and expensive court battle even if you do ultimately get off.

            I hear you. Not sure if this is relevant but I'm in a stand your ground state.

            I don't think calling someone, especially a third party, an idiot would rise to the level of fighting words or instigation. Fighting words have to be unambiguously violent and threatening. If I'm saying it's not worth it, and he starts attacking me, if you don't allow for self-defense the legal standard would be sitting there and letting somebody pummel you to death. that doesn't make any sense especially in a stand your ground state.

            If people feel like they can assault others because somebody made fun of their girlfriend, we are in really bad shape.

              Your prosecutor might not care what you think and make the decision himself that it is fighting words. He may be wrong about that, but you're going to have to settle that in court and have a jury decide.

              The bottom line is if that you started a negative encounter someone, you should not invoke stand your ground even if you're in a stand your ground state. You should be de-escalating and even retreating, and if you are pursued and have no choice then you should defend yourself.

              people 100% do feel that way, but more because they think they're justified (at least in the eyes of the woman, who is what matters to them at that time) and because they don't think anything will happen to them because there are no authority figures around to do something about it. if a cop was around, they sure as frick wouldn't come anywhere near actually throwing a punch no matter what was said.

                Frankly, I don't care about being in jail I care about being in prison. If someone starts punching you in the face and you shoot them and kill them, it would be kind of absurd not to expect to spend some time in jail. But being convicted of murder and sent to prison is a different story.

              No moron. If you insult someone’s father, that’s fighting words. If you call a hetero man a homosexual, those are fighting words.

              Did you not have a dad? Did you never get in any fights? How sheltered and pathetic are you?

            Being called a Black person is not a legal justification for violence. There is no state in the Union where someone legally obliged to take a beating because they called someone else a mean word. There would need to be a lot more evidence of intent to prove they baited someone into a fight to kill them, which probably isn't going to exist from a random encounter like OPs.
            Still, the best thing to do when you see people acting trashy is to avoid them. These encounters are the same thing as finding poop on the sidewalk; it's easier to walk around it than deal with stepping in it.

              This is easy enough to say but I'm not sure if you really processed it as you typed it. Obviously most people would avoid Black person behavior by whatever name you want to call it. Do you not realize how much time and effort we spend every day trying to avoid the shit. It's fricking everywhere. It's literally unavoidable. You're trying to say the most obvious answer is this impossible fantasy that we're all dreaming about and trying hard to accomplish.

              Sure it's easy enough to avoid stepping in shit but what if that one pile of shit is actually a thousand piles of shit and they're all following you around wherever you go?

                My man, in the OP it was as easy as not being the guy who called out the girlfriends behavior. In an already charged situation you don't call attention to yourself like that. I've been around lots of situations like that, this isn't theoretical for me. There is a difference between a person targeting you specifically, and an out of control person waiting for someone to take up their challenge. Most of the time when you find yourself around drunks, druggies, or crazy people you can see what narrative they're trying to create and all you have to do is not play the part they're looking for.

      moronic post, if you're still here OP this is total bullshit. Calling someone an idiot is not fricking fighting words, not instigation, and doesn't justify someone committing assault. That said

      https://i.imgur.com/LAfg9V9.jpg

      Hi /k/ I just came back from a late outing where I got into an altercation. Some young idiot, a mexican machismo type, threatening to assault me because I said his GF was an idiot. We had a little standoff, he said something gay like, "Did you just call my girlfriend an idiot?" And started bearing down in me like he was going to hit me. The female is screaming in the background, "punch him, punch him! wreck that motherfricker!" Etc.

      We were in a fairly isolated location. It was a familiar area but some new people acting out. I never brandished my weapon, I didn't even reach for it. I never said I was armed. After a few moments of staring each other down, I said "If you try, you will die. It's not worth it." Luckily he backed off. He might have assumed I was armed or he might have just backed down in prudence I'm not really sure.

      I'm uncertain if I handled that correctly or what the ideal response was supposed to be. My conviction at the time was 100%. If he attacked, I was ready to use deadly force. Sincerely curious to hear other experiences that are similar where you were armed but didn't brandish.

      I know this will probably get a lot of troll responses but I'm very sincere, I would like to hear your stories and constructive criticism even if harsh.

      For something like that if you're out in public it doesn't hurt to back away, facing him, being calm and try to defuse it. If he comes after you though yeah at that point you defend yourself. But don't get swallowed in your own pride either. tl;dr:
      >act to start as if you DON'T have a gun
      Like, if being armed is making you do something you wouldn't otherwise, then you should reassess. If you were unarmed and would have retreated, you should do that armed as step 1 too. Being armed just gives you a fallback if that doesn't work you wouldn't have had otherwise.

      This is all different if it's your own property, you have family there, or you don't have a retreat path. But if it's just you alone out in public and someone starts acting up deescalation should always be the first effort.

      You will get responses from two types of people here. The 'civilized' and the 'law of the jungle' types.
      The former will think you are in the wrong for calling her an idiot, even if she was being one and the BF is in the wrong for defending her honor.

      The latter would have called you a cuck for having your day/hour disturbed/ruined by some high degen and shutting up and taking it without so much as a word. They would also have called the BF a cuck for letting some random guy insult his woman.
      The solution:
      Pic related, no matter where you lie between these two.
      Pull out the can the moment he shows aggression and spray him when he steps towards you and end the situation, don't have it on your conscience forever or waste time in court.
      >threat escalated
      You sprayed him, told him to stop, he didn't stop, clearly very pissed, looks much better to a jury, on video, in the headlines, everywhere.
      I reccomend carrying 2-3 of the smallest bottles because you can encounter packs and 12 secs of total spraytime (with dropping pressure towwards the end) is not enough to spray liberally/comfortably. Maybe have 1 spray and 1 stream bottle specifically for outdoor situations. Frick, put one (well, at least one- maybe a couple for your friends) in your car.

        a bit autistic, but yes, pepper spray is very underrated by gun people. I think I already said it ITT, but if you’re carrying a gun, you should 100% also have pepper spray for situations exactly like this. Pepper spray is perfectly legal in a situation like this and if was used and ended the confrontation, the cops probably wouldn’t even need to be called.

      This is fair, and it's kind of the inverse of the more normal complaint where it's revealing how many people think of things purely in city terms. But by the same token yeah I've heard there are places where if you look like a weak easy mark it will invite more trouble then non-escalatory SYG. So I guess ultimately there is no formula vs knowing how to think and assessing your local environment.

      >because I said his GF was an idiot
      Well that's because you're a moron. Don't engage with crazy people. Don't interact with crazy people.

      >but she was completely out of control screaming at everybody
      And this is the person you're stupid enough to think you can change the behavior of? By insulting them openly? I know you're feeling a little bit of brass confidence with that little pea shooter on your hip, stop trying to act tough. Break the habit, you're going to get killed.
      [...]
      >Saying "don't get into that situation to begin with" is a cop out answer from people who don't ever leave their house.
      No it's an answer from people who get back to their house. What do you think the survival rate is on every moron who says "I'm gonna go out and interact with every crazy person I see, especially if they're screaming at strangers, and then insult them"
      [...]
      >Are there actual grown men left on this board
      Oh I get it, you've never felt tough in your entire life until you got a gun. Now, you feel the power oozing from your very voice, and feel like the world should bend to your version of order because you're the Gun Guy now, most powerful human in the entire room. Get the frick over your power fantasies, OP. Don't let your pistol get you killed, stop insulting strangers just because you have what you think is the mother of all safety nets. That's literal Black person behavior.

      >Well that's because you're a moron. Don't engage with crazy people. Don't interact with crazy people.
      People are human though anon, and do in fact have the right to expect others to be adults as well. If someone loses their temper briefly and says a loud irritating person is being a bother, that's 100% protected A-OK and that person is expected to fricking deal with it. If they escalate sure try to avoid further conflict, but that doesn't make them justified in doing so.
      >Break the habit, you're going to get killed.
      No you fricking edgelord. It's probably not. Very few people get killed out of something like that or some simple mistake unless you live in an absolute shithole.

          But they don't live in the real world and just brush it all off, I think something is broken for a lot of people, they've genuinely lost the capability to actually fully recognize physical reality. They all think it can't happen to them if they think about it at all. They all will blame anything but themselves and then sink right back into the social media skinner box. Nothing but death will stop them, and nothing at all will stop the rest since if one dies there are 1000 more rushing to fill in their place instantly and their feeds promptly get subsumed under new algorithmic engagement.

              I mean of course, but normally if you survive, directly or indirectly (like you see a comrade in the same position catch it), you learn from it and that's part of growing up. Accumulate near misses.

              What's broken/weird is people directly seeing, on video or even in person, this stuff, and then still continuing right on completely and perfectly unchanged. And continuing long after they're young, late 20s, 30s or 40s all doing mindblowingly dumb shit. Like, just not stopping and thinking. Ever. I saw this working in mountain rescue all the time, people just going out to hike 6000 ft+ without more than water and a power bar and some light clothes without so much as checking the weather forecast for that nasty storm coming in. Not teens, adults, or "adults" anyway, coming from the city. In perfectly good shape but just so stupid, and then it can put others at risk too.

              I don't know. Just I can't help but feel like a lot of humans have gotten so ensconced in virtual and manufactured worlds that something has gotten lost, some basic instinct of there not being any do-overs and safety systems in some situations, no fence, no instant emergency services, whatever.

          If we’re talking shot the YouTube prankster who got shot in the shopping mall a while back, that’s entirely different.
          So iirc, the moron was the one doing the harassing while the delivery driver(?) was minding his business and one the situation started constantly tried to leave and tell the guy to leave him alone before he resorted to defending himself as the much bigger YouTuber kept closing in on him with his friends.
          OP on the other hand arguably started the situation, even if the spicette was in fact being obnoxious and moronic. Could he have gotten off with self defense if the Hispanic decided to keep escalating? With a good lawyer, yeah. But you’re gambling with years of your life behind bars so try to minimize the amount of dumb situations you get yourself into and then try to get out of the ones you do find yourself in without resorting to violence unless you need to

      Hi /k/ I just came back from a late outing where I got into an altercation. Some young idiot, a mexican machismo type, threatening to assault me because I said his GF was an idiot. We had a little standoff, he said something gay like, "Did you just call my girlfriend an idiot?" And started bearing down in me like he was going to hit me. The female is screaming in the background, "punch him, punch him! wreck that motherfricker!" Etc.

      We were in a fairly isolated location. It was a familiar area but some new people acting out. I never brandished my weapon, I didn't even reach for it. I never said I was armed. After a few moments of staring each other down, I said "If you try, you will die. It's not worth it." Luckily he backed off. He might have assumed I was armed or he might have just backed down in prudence I'm not really sure.

      I'm uncertain if I handled that correctly or what the ideal response was supposed to be. My conviction at the time was 100%. If he attacked, I was ready to use deadly force. Sincerely curious to hear other experiences that are similar where you were armed but didn't brandish.

      I know this will probably get a lot of troll responses but I'm very sincere, I would like to hear your stories and constructive criticism even if harsh.

      Just mind your own business.

    >instigating

    If the woman was screaming for the man to attack, and the man is bearing down on someone, it's much more likely that the mexicans would be considered to have used fighting words. It's pretty ridiculous that so many people here think calling somebody an idiot would rise to the level of fighting words while ignoring literal textbook example of fighting words.
    >retreating vs stand your ground
    >deescalate
    You should be really careful before giving advice to retreat or cower, it can encourage more of the aggressive behavior by emboldening the would be attacker, in many cases it practically guarantees that you'll get jumped later or get a brick to the back of the head when you're not looking. You've basically painted a target on your back.
    >acting differently when armed
    This sounds good on paper, it feels like the right thing to say, but ultimately it's a hollow platitude. If you're going to behave the exact same armed or unarmed, then what's the point of arming yourself? I think a better mindset is to assume everybody is armed at all times, that is after all the origin of the idea of a "polite society". People are not kind and respectful to each other out of some kind of cosmic benevolence, but out of the visceral understanding that any of these men have the capacity to end you.

      To add to this, when police ask me if I’ve brandished my firearm, I tell them “no, however I did make that individual aware that I do have a concealed carry permit, and would advise them on using any physical force against me, for if I am in fear of my life I will defend it with any means necessary and at-hand”

      I mean, you make a good point. In one scenario you wake up dead, in another scenario you get into some vague, minor legal trouble for brandishing.

      Lately I have found myself wondering why people consider concealed carry to be the default in places that allow open carry. It seems like a safe assumption that open carry would be much more effective at preventing people from fricking with you. I live in a constitutional carry state and I've started to see a lot more people open carry in the last few years. I kind of like this trend.

          I get what you're saying, but you have to acknowledge that those situations are extreme outliers that would be rapidly weeded out if open carry was the norm.

          Forest from the trees. Thinking not from a single independent scenario, but from an overall effect over the long term. Anybody who behaved this way in an open carry society would have a very short lifespan and after a few years they wouldn't exist anymore.

    I don't see anything wrong there in this isolated situation.
    No one could ever prove you had a weapon. The threat was conditional upon the other party's actions, which would have been assault, and they can't prove you had any way to carry it out.
    My recommendation is that you avoid the situation to begin with because if you did brandish in the face of a non-deadly force threat that both you and he instigated then you'd be turbofricked.

          You are absolutely 100% wrong in this. If somebody assaults you there is no universe where you couldn't claim self-defense as a legal defense. I don't know where you guys get this shit from. In fact, you don't even have to be under attack, merely threatening posturing is enough to qualify for self-defense.

          Remember this guy? Ended up being concluded as justified self-defense even though it was only words. Stop talking out of your ass.

                This is sophistry. Anyway my point was, and remains, that a single punch is more than enough to justify use of deadly force. Many people have died or been crippled from getting punched just one time. And maybe it was only one punch because he got shot before he had the chance for the second.

                Attorneys like to imagine themselves as people who deal in objective facts, but the truth is everything about legal interactions from the police officers decision to arrest to the DA's decision to prosecute to the judge's decision to allow self-defense as a legal defense down to the juries conclusions are completely subjective. The law is just a sloppy, often vague, inconsistent set of rules that some humans made up for other humans.

                If somebody's punching a man in the face are you expecting him to do some kind of deep legal analysis on proportionality and eminence before he decides to shoot the guy? I mean give me a fricking break here.

                Good luck with that theory. A punch is only deadly force sometimes and it will be up to a jury as to whether they believe your interpretation of events.
                A fist fight is considered non-deadly force in the absence of verbal deadly threats or large size and capability differences. Not hard to convince a jury that a single punch to an elderly woman is deadly force, but a healthy 6' 200lbs man can likely take a punch.
                You're trying to apply an absolute to all cases which does not fit and is EXTREMELY legally hazardous. A punch is not deadly force until it is.

                First,
                >should you lose ALL your rights
                Everybody has rights in the US, even and especially people in prisons
                >should someone lose all their rights because they called a beaner's gf an idiot?
                No, that's just banter. Nothing wrong there. Depending on the state your in, and depending on what exactly you said, it could possibly be verbal assault, but that's unlikely.
                >if you start a verbal altercation with someone by calling their girlfriend an idiot should you lose all your rights?
                No, shouldn't lose your rights. But you've now instigated an altercation that can reasonably be expected to become physical. Instigators cannot claim self defense; that's widely accepted and deeply entrenched common law often encoded in statute as well.
                You're now at the point where you've instigated, and the Hispanic has started responding by threatening and posturing. If you engage and provoke then he swings, you're both liable. If you try to disengage and he swings, he's liable and you can swing back. If you swing first obviously you're liable.
                But here's the thing - you are armed with deadly force, you instigated the altercation. If the Hispanic swings on you, he is not using deadly force as defined in the vast manority of US jurisdictions. And in that vast majority, deadly force can only be used in a justified manner when it is in response to deadly force (unless you're a cop but hats a different thread). So now he real question, as a court would see it, is:
                >Should you face criminal penalty, likely a felony charge and jail time, for provoking an altercation and then using disproportionate deadly force in response to a non deadly threat?
                Most courts, basically all courts, would rule that yes, you should face criminal penalty.
                Not sure why I wasted my time writing this out. I know that ignorant stubborn halfwits like you never change your opinion, because you have some sense of moral high ground that you feel supercedes all real authority

Think of it like a campground type setting where people hang out with owners permission, except nobody is camping. Large open area maybe 1 to 1.5 acres, people wondering back and forth from their cars to the fire, people dropping off firewood, etc. Some people drinking, mostly beer, usually very chill. Mexican groups have started showing up there more and more often over last year or so. I really don't see what any of this matters.

                If punched you can defend yourself by punching and grappling in response. Or carry pepper spray. Everybody should carry pepper spray or a taser in addition to their gun

              Yes, a singular instance that is not necessarily representative of a trend.
              The legal system is extremely messy and if you'd spent more time observing it you'd know. Some shoots get indictmentd that should not, some don't get indictments that should. There are humans in control.

              The guy being replied to was trying to claim being punched just one time wasn't enough to qualify for self defense which is obviously bullshit.

                Being punched once is enough to claim self defense, but it is more than likely insufficient to successfully claim use of deadly force. In most jurisdictions you need to be threatened with deadly force OR have reasonable imminent fear for your life to use deadly force

                It's up to the jury whether they believe what you did was reasonable. You have to justify why you resorted to deadly force if you find yourself in court while the shitty prosecutor argues that the 5'5" 120lbs POC was incapable of projecting a deadly force threat through his tiny stature.
                There isn't a statute that says "verily a punch is deadly force", in fact nearly all of self-defense is case law and precedence rather than statute. This means that every case is isolated, while there are trends, no two cases are the same and it's entirely circumstantial whether a punch is actually deadly force or not.

            That was 100% small town corruption though, the shooter's girlfriend, the victim's ex-wife was a judge and had sufficient influence to get it thrown out. She was far too young to have become a judge on merit (early 30s) so there was some serious corruption involved in her even being a judge in the first place.

      He's right. Why are we living in a society where low IQ belligerent people can not be confronted to calm the frick down, without us having to worry about being either physically attacked by them or put in prison defending ourselves from them? This atomized society is fricking disgusting. The savages all act in cohesion, not on purpose but by nature of their savage and low IQ impulsive ways, and the smart people just have to sit back and take it in the ass. Everytime one steps outside of their home nowadays in a big city it's just filled to the brim with degenerates and people like you protect their way of life by being the type of bozo to try to put guys like Kyle Rittenhouse in prison. You should be forced to live with the filth you protect. Usually people who share your views are sheltered little queers who OCCASIONALLY interact with "inner city cultural enrichment" and think yourselves as men of the world.

    Here is a sincere answer, know the fricking law. Every state has different laws on self defense with a firearm. If you are carrying a gun you should know the fricking law inside and out. You should play the what if game in your head. Do not just go walking out the house with a gun, with some vague notion in your head of when you are going to use it.

      Every state in the US requires innocence, imminence, proportionality, reasonableness, and few still require avoidance.
      Innocence, you can't be the criminal party or inciter. Imminence, you can't be responding to a speculative or future threat. Proportionality, unless the guy is bigger or a professional boxer, a single punch is not deadly force. Reasonableness, you must have a subjectively reasonable explanation for your actions which will be tested objectively by a jury who asks whether they would have done the same. Avoidance, an antiquated idea that you have a duty to leave and avoid a deadly conflict until there is no other safe option.

        Every single thing on your list is completely subjective and as it's already been shown proportionality by itself isn't even being enforced when mere words can give you justifiable self-defense for killing a man. It's not like the Chad Read shooting was the only one that's ever happened like this, it's just a high profile example. People get shot all the time just for walking across somebody's property, they get shot for breaking into a house even though they were never assaulted and there wasn't an imminent threat. It's not "proportional" because somebody wanted to steal your TV and they lose their life.

        The part that you're missing is that sometimes the deadly threat is IMPLIED. This is why trespassing and burglary and mere words can and often do result in justifiable self-defense.

          Reasonableness and proportionality go hand in hand. If you believed that a deadly-force threat was IMPLIED, then you will get to have that tested by a jury. They'll decide if it was reasonable.
          You better have facts that support your reasonable belief because you can't just speculate that there was a deadly threat.

        No, the "attorneys" are lying to you though half truths, which is basically their MO. They would have to prove that you provoked the attack in order to retaliate which is probably not going to happen unless you basically sit down and confess to it. Just like homosexuals here fantasize about blasting a home intruder with their expensive guns, lawyers like to fantasize about these legal scenarios where they convince a jury that you said Black person as a set up to murder someone.

        The actual legal standard primarily exists in the mind of the shooter, that is if he had a genuine and reasonable fear for his life, even if he was mistaken, and it ultimately comes down to the jury.

        Whenever you hear a lawyer start talking about some shit they think they know from law school, stop listening. These are either law students or freshly minted lawyers who have no experience. Experienced lawyers are so painfully aware of the differences between law school theory and real life that they would be embarrassed to even bring it up.

                Their job isn’t just to win. As prosecutors they also have a duty to gatekeep cases that shouldn’t be filed. That’s what a DA reject is. But sometimes they see fame or higher office as an outcome and don’t faithfully execute that role. Other times, they have a loyalty to local law enforcement that makes them railroad defendants. By the way, I’m yet another “attorney” who knows you’re full of shit, and I haven’t seen the inside of a law school in 20-plus years.

        No, but if you try to claim self-defense after shooting the guy you just called Black person, the prosecutor is going to get a jury instruction that you can be convicted of manslaughter for having provoked the attack.

    To be clear, being punched many times especially in the head is different than a singular punch being thrown at you. A single punch is considered non-deadly force, but many is easily deadly.
    You don't have to take a blackout beating/brain damage to resort to deadly force. It's very reasonable to disengage from the conflict, not be allowed to while graying out, and use your firearm.

    I was reading about all of this shit that can happen from a single punch and I came across a documentary called one punch homicide where they cover a lot of different cases where somebody was killed from a single punch. the premise is that it happens so much more frequently than people expect but the law generally seems to treat it as a very unusual outcome even though there are thousands of cases of it.

    https://m.imdb.com/title/tt2073046/

    This is an interesting article about it in the context of homicide as an unintentional outcome of punching someone.

    https://www.mountfordchambers.com/blog-one-punch-manslaughter-one-size-does-not-fit-all/

    I also read a couple of laws that were either being proposed or passed in several States about the ability to upgrade or downgrade assault by punching into a homicide or preventing it from becoming homicide depending on the state.

    All that is debatable but what's not debatable is the fact that a punch can kill you. The legal classification probably doesn't matter much if you're the one being punched.

              I'm very skeptical that actual licensed attorneys would be dumb enough to be on this board posting legal advice to random people about using deadly force. Sounds like the world's most obvious liability.

                It's not legal advice, it's a discussion about legal topics on a public forum. There is no ability to form a client-attorney relationship on a forum such as this due to the anonymity; therefore there's no liability. You'd know this if you took legal ethics when you were a 2L or 3L, but you didn't because you never were.
                Additionally, there are plenty of attorneys on /k/. I've bumped into a few who clearly weren't larping, and one of my colleagues is on here occasionally when he gets bored on PrepHole

                Yeah... We're so scared of being caught giving legal advice on an anonymous website! You caught us. We're lying. We must be nolife losers like you.

                >Calling someone an idiot is not fricking fighting words, not instigation, and doesn't justify someone committing assault. That said
                Lots of shit that doesn't justify getting your ass kicked will get your ass kicked anyway. Mind your own business and move on. Some screaming beaner chick having a tantrum in public isn't your problem, its the employees and police's peoblem. Stop acting like having a CCW makes you some fricking hall monitor moron I fricking hate people like you

                That's where you're wrong chief. It's your problem. It's the entire problem of the USA and your future children (if you aren't a troon or hook noser).

              Self defense is primarily case law. For the most part statutory law will only determine whether the prosecutor can argue that a person should have made an effort to avoid the conflict.

                This is word soup to a legally trained person.

                Which statutes are you going to cite in a pre-trial motion to dismiss on a self defense case that you believe would actually work? The judge won't grant it because it's a fact question.
                The individual facts of a case and whether the use of deadly force comports with the loose mold of permissible homicide is going to determine the legal outcome. The loose mold is defined better in case law, not a plain reading of statute. Plenty of "instructors" are intimately familiar with plain text statutory readings which appear deceptively permissive, but are actually narrow when the courts apply them.

                You make it sound so gray area when many things in law are black and white. It would be per state statutes a person wouldn't even be arrested following a justified use of lethal force. My state is Arizona, this is another thing that's making me lol at you morons, you don't realize there's jurisdictional law. You state something as if it applies to all 50 states and US Code all at the same time.

                This is how laws read:

                https://www.azleg.gov/ars/13/00405.htm
                https://www.azleg.gov/ars/13/00411.htm

                Case law is another animal where you actually have to know the cases but there are reference lists of notable cases available. A big federal one for use of force is Graham v Connor, this is one that state legislators have to consider when making their laws regarding the justification of use of force in law enforcement. This is also spelled out clearly, but this law itself is influenced by Graham v Connor and if it went against it would be challenged. That's how case law plays a role, it overturns legislative law in some cases.

                https://www.azleg.gov/ars/13/00410.htm

                This is what I would reference, actual laws pertaining to my jurisdiction. What you morons are referencing is bullshit you read online and your own schizophrenic voices.

                Here's another one pertaining to self defense justification.

                https://www.azleg.gov/ars/13/00404.htm

                So all that shit you're claiming a prosecutor and jury just make up on a whim, this is the type of law they're actually going off of. Every state has laws spelled out similar to this one, and when you see cases playing out they're hitting those elements and showing whether the defendant did or did not meet those elements. It's not subjective, it's very objective. Except when juries come into play but they're used to con people out of justice at this point by using morons with no understanding of law, who think with their feelings, to interpret law. Please do not discuss law if you don't actually understand it, you only create more morons.

                Every statute you cited requires a jury find that the person in question is "reasonable" which is a fact question. How do we know what reasonable people look like? case law. A judge would never dismiss or grant summary judgement because you cited statutes that require a jury to find your client is reasonable.

                That's the primary element in the statutes you cited dude, I don't know why you bothered with them. The other five elements aren't necessarily enshrined in statutory law and regardless of whether someone comports with a plain text reading of the statute, they will still need to meet at least 4 of the 5 elements.

                It's not a primary element and not even really that important a piece of the law. It's a singular element on its own and one that rarely gets challenged. The law is putting forth that if you see someone raping someone, killing someone, about to burn down an occupier structure, committing burglary in the first degree, etc then you have the right to use immediate deadly force. The WHY you did it is the most important part. The reasonable person clause just states why did you believe this thing was happening, and was your belief reasonable. You'd be surprised how objective that portion is too, very little is left up to subjectivity but there is indeed a human element of all law. The law itself it written so objectively as to remove most of it and only allow for small things like the spirit of the law vs the letter of the law, or the dude waiting in his garage for some kids to trespass as an excuse to kill them, areas where human reasoning should override the letter because some butthole need to go to jail.

                To put the reasonable standard into an example, if OP had clocked that beaner and the cops showed up, they'd ask him why he did it and if he responds:

                >cuz I got bugs under my skin and he turned into a frickin dragon and was trying to steal muh pot o gold! *meth twitch*

                vs

                >he approached me yelling that he was going to hit me, he had his fists balled, I could tell by his expression he was angry, his gf was egging him on and he closed the distance, I knew I was going to be hit.

                Option two covers that a reasonable person would believe an assault/battery was about to take place. Option one has not really articulated the why, he hasn't covered any of the elements for justification and would rely on witness statements to cover them if they're even there.

          Acting like law is some kind of noble profession, but the curtain has been pulled back and we see how the sausage is made. Corrupt judges and prosecutors and DAs, sweetheart plea deals for the wealthy and politically connected, for profit prison systems with bonuses going to judge us for their conviction rate, family courts tearing people apart, divorce courts financially raping men into suicide, all the while talking about the sanctity of the justice system. It's pathetic.

    What you're talking about are pre-attack indicators. Stance, posture, standing close, balled fists, facial expressions, things being said. You have little clue what those are and zero clue what a force continuum is. You're not justified in using deadly force against someone who is not using or indicating deadly force. You should not be carrying a gun, it's a bigger liability to you than it is protection. Learn to fight and talk to some cops to sort your shit out little pussy boy. These monkeys posture and bluff all the time. They're nothing to be worried about. If you felt like it you can crack his jaw or burst his liver for the pre-attack indicators, and yes you can hit first with no warning. There's no such thing as a sucker punch especially when someone is indicating attack.

    Your first mistake was insulting someone else in public, especially a woman. Your second mistake was not making it right when confronted. Your third mistake was assuming you were free to use deadly force in that situation.

    You probably did/said the right thing to make him back off, which is what you are fishing for here. Never put anyone else in that situation ever again. Watch your mouth when you're out and about. You never know what kind of crazy is going to respond to your bad attitude.

    The threat was ill advised, even from a non legal stand point (where it’s OH SHIT Black person WYD tier ill advised) all it encourages is for him to loop around armed and ready.
    Either shoot or don’t but don’t threaten. Lucky he was unarmed, a b***h, and or smart enough not to escalate.

    If you think someone is acting dumb and you have the need to inform them that's about the time I've found it's better to just tell someone I'm gonna dip this isn't my scene or try to gather up my squad and see if they're up to go or if they want to stick around and can find another way home.

    If you put yourself in his shoes his girl sounds like a dumb and probably isn't very difficult. He probably thought you were negging, or if she's actually not that bad looking it's not that uncommon for guys to try and muscle in on your squeeze. I like to try to take it as more of a litmus test if I can't trust them when I'm around I definitely don't trust them when I'm not there and would rather just call it quits and try to block them to avoid their drama and 1000 missed calls and them asking everyone they know about me and trying to follow me around in public and talking shit. Otherwise guys think a fist fight is going to settle things. I mean if she's dumb, let them be dumb how does it effect you? They're going to stay dumb whether you say they're dumb or not. I mean if you really thought a fight was going to happen there you should have punched her and ran for it.
