lol, i agree NATIVE... however, read the story the courts are not considering his stupid defense. they are considering when a lower court can reject such a pathetic defense. from what I understand the person killed was attempting to do just what you posted. trust me he will get his. but the fact that this killer is attempting to get off by using such a defense is in itself a crime.
