“A Minnesota bill that could be sent to the governor next week would sharply expand the circumstances under which people can use deadly force when they feel threatened, a measure that law enforcement groups call a recipe for getting away with murder.”
“Under the proposal, ‘If you are anywhere you can legally be, you can defend yourself against a criminal,’ said Republican Senator Gretchen Hoffman, the Senate sponsor. ‘If I am on the street … and I feel imminent danger of physical harm, I should be able to act with equal or greater force.’ ”
Caedite eos. Novit enim Dominus qui sunt eius. — Kill them all. For the Lord knows them that are His. (attributed to Arnaud Amalric, 13th cent.) [A fitting comment, I think, because Senator Hoffman is Catholic.]
