Justified Homicide in Marital Affair?
After joking around with a buddy of mine about his sex life I got to thinking about this after reading Ayoob's books on justifiable homicide. Say you are having an affair with a married woman, her husband bursts in the room and attacks you with his fists, you raise your gun as he reaches in his jacket to grab "something" you shoot him. Later in court how do you look? was it justified? um...sure but this wasn't on the streets it was on the sheets. What were you doing there in the first place??? sounds like a tough call and a legal battle between prosecution and defense. Edit: oh and you (shooter) are also married.
