In real life, after Castor killed Michael, Archer wouldn't have been allowed anywhere near the case. Lyle could've communicated properly by singing sentences. Matilda should've demanded a few more things when she wrote on the chalkboard. Is the audience supposed to think Sam did the right thing by hiding the evidence? Shouldn’t the army have been angry with Mulan after the avalanche? I wonder if Shang would’ve killed Mulan if she didn’t save his life Lots of people seem to forget Andy arguably is a murderer Anyone else feel Carl marrying his childhood best friend feels a little too "fairytale"? They should've shown Ferdinand being given laxatives and having vaseline rubbed in his eyes and cotton put in his nose Ferdinand isn't a bull View all posts >

Interesting reply, I haven't seen the original, I didn't know that. We don't know much about the rape case, and obviously being promiscuous doesn't mean you deserve to be raped, but the victim's sexual history can sometimes be relevant. For example, if Cady tied her up, and the report on her sexual history said she enjoyed being tied up, Sam could've used that to argue that it was consensual sex. Him trying to drown him in a well should be enough to not want him to raise him. OK, you're right about those ones. I think it probably would be, but I'm not a lawyer, so I could be wrong. But he wasn't trespassing, he was outdoors on public property. It doesn't matter what his intentions were, his actions would've been legally justified even if he didn't have a license to kill. If he shot her non-fatally, and she called it off, Renard may have been able to tell she was in pain from her voice, and it could've made him suspicious. The radio was in front of her face. If he shot it, he still would've killed her. And he would've been taught to always aim for the center mass. It doesn't matter how close the target is, and how good of a shot he is, there's still a higher chance he'll miss, it's not worth the risk. He killed her right as she was ordering the strike, the gunshot cut her sentence short, so it could've at least made the order more confusing. The one in TSWLM could be argued as self defence, the man was trying to kill him, and grabbed onto his tie. He could've argued he had to prevent him from dragging him off the roof. He could've argued helping him up was too dangerous, since they were at the edge of the roof, the man was bigger than him, and likely would've kept trying to kill him. You're right, there's no defence for the one in FYEO. I think his license to kill means he can kill whoever he wants wherever he wants, but it's only recognised in the UK. He could be arrested in other countries, but the UK wouldn't extradite him. People do have the right to kill intruders, or detain them at gunpoint and turn them over to the police. But they don't have the right to hold them against their will for the rest of their life. If they do, the intruder becomes a kidnapping victim, and they have the right to kill their kidnappers. I think this is what happens when Bond enters the villains' lairs. It's always clear that they intend to kill Bond while he's detained and no longer a threat, which is illegal, and Bond would have the right to defend himself from that even if he didn't have a license to kill. I can't think of any other examples of that. View all replies >
