Worse legally if BG survives?
I'm curious. If you have to shoot a home invader or whatever, might you be in a worse place legally if he survives? A BG that survives, sitting in a wheelchair preying on a jury's sympathy, might get you in more hot water than one who can't plead his case, even though the charges you face would be lesser.
I AM NOT ADVOCATING administering a coup de grace or any other sick crap. I'm not suggesting executing wounded attackers to save legal hassle. I'm merely curious what outcome is preferable in the courtroom, silent BG or wounded and sympathetic? OK? Purely hypothetical curiosity.
