Re: techniquies in street fights

How about if you can justify your actions, and you didn't for example, start beating the guy to a pulp in a rage. If the guy had a knife and you broke his arm, and you could justify this, even if you only thought he had a knife then you would probably be alright. I'm not advocating murdering the poor sod, but use your common sense, reasonable force is what you consider nessecary to save your life. You would be arrested and interviewed, to make sure the loose ends ie. You and your attacker, are available , but as long as your actions were 'honourable' then you wouldn't be seen as the guilty party. After this it goes into the hands of soliciters and way over my head. I'm not an average bobby on the beat, but would Military Police suffice?
