Right to Self-Defense and Defense of Others
An individual can, when presented with a credible and immediate threat
that another individual or set of individuals will commit a biological
crime against himself or another individual, legally defend himself
and/or other would-be victims, through any and all means available to
him, with the corollary that his actions must not exceed in injury to
the perpetrators that which, under the circumstances, can have
resulted from a good-faith effort to use minimal force. Nonetheless,
the defender is not guilty of any wrongdoing even if despite his best
effort to use the minimum force likely to bring the crisis to
abatement, the perpetrator(s) are seriously injured or killed.
Robbery is a violent, and therefore biological, crime.
