I'm real consistent. I don't buy the claim of self defense. As far as I'm concerned, he started the altercation then ran for his gun. By your definition, I should be able to head out to the bar, strapped, start pounding on someone, and when he gets the upper hand on me, I can claim self defense and shoot his ass. Doesn't work that way.<quoted text>
So it's alright for a dude to punch a woman, but it's not alright for a man to shoot another man in self-defense?(Zimmerman) Gotta love your consistency!
In both cases I side with the one who did not start the altercation.
