      Don’t be ignorant. Are you saying somebody acting in self defence should get the same penalties as someone who murder out of rage?

    Murders do not all fall into one category. Self-defense and premeditated are completely opposite.

    666 you are one jka
    i honestly hope you don’t have children or don’t intend on having children because people like you should not be allowed to procreate
    ridiculous so a woman being raped by an individual and kills him in self defense should get the same penalty as a an individual who robs and kills someone
    you are truly a genius

    666 explain yourself
    so provable self defense should be equated to unwarranted murder?

    The law has outlined circumstances in which one is allowed is kill. Self defense is one of those. There is no need to charge the young man if the evidence suggests that he acted in defense of himself. I that instance, if a decision is finally made that he not be charged the matter would be sent to a inquest and a jury will determine whether his actions were justified or not. If his actions are ruled as unlawful then he could be charged at that point.

    The DPP also has the option of recommending that chargers be laid after careful review of the evidence presented by the police.

    We are too hasty sometimes. This is why many of the police cases go down the drain. Allow them time to gather the required evidence to make the correct decisions.
