    But he is arguing self-defense, to which your points apply about equally.

    See my reply to your other comment above. The prosecution will appeal to the jury's gut; the defense will appeal to the jury's brain. Usually, gut trumps brain. But not always. And sometimes surprising things happen in trial, shifting the equation one way or the other.
