Is a chair cause for lethal force?
Here is an excerpt from a newsletter I got from my local sheriff:
Say you were in that restuarant and you were trying to escape just like everyone else. While waiting for an exit, someone approaches you and is about to hit you over the head with a chair. What to do?
Seven Arrested During Bar Fight Outside Beaverton
On May 3, Deputies responded to a bar fight at Azteca Mexican Restaurant on Beaverton Hillsdale Highway. Security had used pepper spray on the patrons who were fighting, and more than 100 people were attempting to exit the bar. Just like a Wild West movie scene, patrons were throwing beer bottles and using chairs as weapons. Deputies and Beaverton Police were quickly able to break up the fight and control the crowd. Deputies arrested and took five adults to jail, cited two who had been sent to the hospital, and cited a third person for Minor in Possession. The Oregon Liquor Control Commission is investigating the restaurant for serving underage patrons.
