    Angry Assault Victim Gets 18 months in Jail for Defending Self

    From the People's Republic of Connecticut: https://fxn.ws/2MTCAt7.
    Sumpter was working at a Dunkin’ Donuts in Norwalk last October when he was jumped by three males. During the assault, Sumpter stabbed one of them in the leg.
    “I was defending myself,” Sumpter said during the hearing.
    Judge John Blawie told Sumpter that he believed his version of events, but had to follow the letter of the law.

    Glad we don't have to worry about this bravo sierra in Indiana - it's a shame that other states do not recognize an individual's right to life (ergo, right to defend).

    Juror printcraft votes to acquit.

    I don't care about the timing. Sumpter would not have been in that situation had they not attacked him.

    There's always more to the story...

    After being assaulted inside the coffee shop, Sumpter ran outside and stabbed one of the men.
    Victim of Norwalk assault gets 18 months for not retreating

    Felony first-degree assault does seem harsh though.
    Necessity is the argument of tyrants; it is the creed of slaves.

    I should have dug in farther...the Fox News article links to the Connecticut Post article:
    After being assaulted inside the coffee shop, Sumpter ran outside and stabbed one of the men.

    Play stupid games, win stupid prizes. Once the dirtbags walk away, it's over; be a good witness and help the police solve the crime; don't dig yourself a hole.

    I still have a difficult time believing that the judge couldn't have sentenced with a little more leniency (Or that he wasn't able to plead down to a misdemeanor). It's a shame that he will now have a felony following him around.

    Don't bet the farm, hoss.

    When not in danger, hard sell on self-defense when one must run out to meet the "threat".

    KNEW there had to be more than this. No different than the pharmacist in Oklahoma that put two more into the robber he'd already shot after he came back in the store after chasing one of the other robbers down the street.

    I agree with the sentiment but unfortunately they both went too far.
    Yes I am for gun control!! A firm grip, steady aim, and a gentle squeeze!!

    What comes after your first "infraction"? Double Secret Probation perhaps???

    More of what? People being attacked or victims chasing down their attackers after the threat is over?

    More of what? Less than optimal claims of self-defense.

    Remember what Uncle Kirk says, kids, just because you claim self-defense does not mean that it is.
