Homeless man was just “defending himself” when he threw liquid at woman taking his picture

Keep in mind the legal definition of self defense when you read the story below:

“Self-defense is a defense to certain criminal charges as well as to some civil claims. Under both Criminal Law and Tort Law, self-defense is commonly asserted in cases of Homicide, Assault and Battery, and other crimes involving the attempted use of violence against an individual. Statutory and case law governing self-defense is generally the same in tort and criminal law.

A person claiming self-defense must prove at trial that the self-defense was justified. Generally a person may use reasonable force when it appears reasonably necessary to prevent an impending injury. A person using force in self-defense should use only so much force as is required to repel the attack. Nondeadly force can be used to repel either a nondeadly attack or a deadly attack. Deadly Force may be used to fend off an attacker who is using deadly force but may not be used to repel an attacker who is not using deadly force.

Up in Monroe, Washington (just north of Seattle), a woman took at picture of a homeless man. According to MyNorthwest.com, while the woman was in her car the man proceeded to throw a “reddish liquid” from a bottle all over her. She had no idea what the liquid was yet said it was “putrid-smelling.”

She rolled up her car window, called 911 and the homeless man came back at her with “a grapefruit-sized rock” above his head. A rock that big can be considered a deadly weapon.

Monroe Police told the assault victim – who was just taking a picture – that the homeless man had the right to defend himself [from her photography].

UNBELIEVABLE.

Read all the details about the story at MyNorthwest.com (including the illegal activities the perp had committed days prior to his attack on this woman).

Sad what has become of progressive-run (and voter-approved) areas of Washington State wherein the homeless criminals have more rights than law-abiding citizens.

Well, she offended his feels, and having ones feels offended justifies the use of potentially deadly force. Even I know that. I assume this (minority) voter-approved insanity is confined to the cities. Regardless, I’ll avoid the Northwest at all costs

putrid reddish liquid… yummm! {Homer Simpson}
But the rock? Assault. She was already in her car, no threat. Maybe demand her camera or that she delete his photo? Call 911? With *his* record?

In public places you have no right to assumed privacy. She wasn’t even slightly breaking the law his liquid could have been acid. she therefore has every right to self defence deadly force if the liquid touches her whatso ever.

How ironic that the police told the victim that the criminal had the right to protect himself from her photography, yet the rest of Americans don’t seem to have that right as we are under constant surveillance from millions of cameras everytime we step out in public. How would police and municipalities react if we went around destroying all their cameras that are constantly spying on us and after our arrest used that defense in court? “Your honor, I was just protecting myself from your photography of me.” For some crazy reason I don’t think the court would agree with… Read more »

Life unworthy of living. The scum should be remanded to a labor camp. Anything less proves that the political and judicial classes value have weaponized the criminals as agents of fear. Government that fails to protects its subject has lost it’s moral authority and passed over the the realm of empire

Monroe Police have just put the cross-hairs on professional photographers taking photos at public events. Considering the unstable minds of the left, in general, rallies by their presidential candidates should become quite entertaining.
