Self-Defense…the consequence can be years

Massad Ayoob blogged about the appellate court overturning Harold Fish’s murder conviction. (A very good thing for those not familiar with the case.)  Harold Fish defending himself on a hike using a 10mm. Which the prosecutor used to demonize Mr. Fish and sway the jurors to convict.

Massad does a better job of explaining the case than I can. But I wanted to point out to my readers that Mr. Fish has suffered 5 yrs of woes for defending himself.  Granted, it’s better to be alive than dead. But it’s a good reminder that the act of protecting ourselves may very well condemn us as well – sadly
