Yellowstone Volcano Eruption in 2014? Are Animals Are Fleeing Park As ‘An Alert’?Read More "“Biologists aren’t sure if there’s been a stunning decline in the herd or if other factors have skewed the tally,” he said. “Current Helium releases at 1000 times above normal. Complete media blackout. Herds of bison running for their lives on the public roadways and they were not being chased or rounded up, the bison were running down the mountain slopes onto roadways running right past a filming crew. They detect something vast and deadly. The Yellowstone Supervolcano is the only thing there that would fit the bill.” ( http://www.theepochtimes.com/n3/593833-yellowstone-volcano-eruption-in-2014-some-believe-animals-are-fleeing-park-see-it-as-an-alert/ )

lol. Patch needs to be ignored. If the content is so irrelevant, and you know that there is nobodyRead More there actually working to make local headlines possible, why do people keep reading and complaining?

A sad instance indeed, but explain to me how swinging a hammer menacingly at officers does notRead More constitute shooting in self-defense. I am sure if I swung a hammer in defiance to police they would shoot me too. If the officers followed protocol, explain to me why the County has to pay the woman's family anything. Yes, I read the article, did I miss something?

In order to claim self defense, the defendant needs to reasonably believe lethal force is necessaryRead More to avoid death or great bodily injury. This standard typically is met when the assailant has 1) means, 2) intent , and 3) opportunity. Since the assailant here was a tiny woman, a jury could conclude that she lacked the means to inflict great bodily injury on a much larger, stronger and armored male. The county settled to avoid the possibility of an adverse verdict.
