I do not usually believe in using deadly force against someone, but in this situation it seemed hard to avoid. According to the police, the kidnapper was actively stabbing the victim so I think in the heat of the moment a natural reaction may have been to stop the person from hurting the victim by any means possible. My main argument against the use of deadly force is that is can be used unnecessarily, but this situation is one in which I think that was probably the only way to stop the assault.

This is awesome and so encouraging to see. I think it’s so rare that we see how much a victim can do in self-defense. It’s nice to see a victim not be so much of a victim.

This is a list that's crying to be read out loud, with mellifluous beauties including Amata, Tullia, and Galathea.
