Why should HER safety be his first priority, even though SHE IS ATTACKING HIM? Why shouldn't he be allowed to do WHATEVER most easily neutralizes the threat to him?
It's law to use the same amount of force of the attack on you to stop the attack. So if she's slapping you, you can't punch her and knock her out. That is using more force than necessary to stop the attack. If she's punching you in the face you can do it back. But to be honest if say now a girl punches you in the arm and it doesn't affect you in the slightest, why knock her out?
This sounds like an unexpected attack by a girlfriend on her boyfriend.. To me that would not justify 6'2, 200 lb. me dealing with some belligerent 5'4, 140 lb. lady by knocking her unconscious. I wouldn't do that to a smaller guy, either, unless the person was wielding a weapon.
Because muh wamen and muh misogyny. He should knock her out but he's probably being smart since we know the law won't be fair.
If someone is genuinely attacking you, like with raw power or a weapon, knock their asses out.
Lots of violence questions from you?
