    account, I never was particularly concerned with Z's injuries. If I was 17 years old, and a creepy cracker was following me, and then tried to prevent me from proceeding, there is no doubt in my mind that I would have fought to get away. Additionally, the pictures taken a short while later indicated little damage. Certainly nowhere near enough to constitute fear of death.

      a punch or two in, if anything.

      I also completely believed Rachel.

      In this case, which stealthily became SYG in the jury instructions, all that was sufficient to justify deadly force was fear of the fear of potential acts that might possibly approach something close enough to great bodily harm or death.

      What do we want? Evidence-based change! When do we want it? After peer review!
