It is surprising that the 19 year old was able to find an attorney who would take a case against a 17 year old. When you sue someone, you sue for something, and most 17 year olds don't own enough to make it worthwhile.So unless the 19 year old is merely threatening to sue, then the 19 year old is...

If things have got that serious, why wait? You know where they are at. To grab, pull or twist them, that puts you to close to him. A good solid hit with your foot, fist, fore arm will do about as much as pulling and twisting. Thumbs in the eye socket works well also. You can't be squeamish about...

So, in that...
Sure, you can be arrested for murder, if the stabbed person dies. You can also be tried for murder. "Self Defense" is a legal defense to a criminal charge of murder. Self Defense is a defense to a criminal charge and in a criminal trial. It has nothing to do with being arrested.
  squids emit an ink-like substance to escape from predators!!
Three types of non resistant self defense are Japanese Jujitsu, Judo, and Aikido. These arts do not utilize power against power. They use your opponent's own force and momentum against him, but it takes years to really master them.   Addendum:Actually, the only means of non-resistant self...

Japanese is always better because you maintain your standing position and never give it up. This means that you always are upright and can fight more opponents at the same time or back to back quicker. Also it is a lot deadlier and far more effective.

The best martial art to take for immediate self defense is Judo; far as "tools" the truth is its best to trip someone and then just run, assuming they are not using a firearm. It also depends on your age and where you are; usually, modern day bullies are protected by the teachers, so its not wise to...
The best women's self defense teacher I know goes by the name Raziq Shaikh and he is from Hyderabad.

A...

Murder isn't considered self defense. They are two different things, two different words with different definitions. If you mean "killing," killing and murder aren't always the same thing. Murder is killing unjustly. Killing another person can sometimes be justified by law.  If someone runs at you...
KARATE, cause it is more easily to kick someone, than throwing him on the ground.
In one on one unarmed situations JUDO In multiple opponents or if your attacker has a weapon, KARATE But, just for your information, there is no better martial art than others, it really depends on the skill.
It would of course depend on what you mean by "successful", and from whose perspective. I can't answer your question because of these and other reasons, but perhaps I can help you focus on what you are interested in. If for example you had a concealed carry permit and were carrying a gun when...

A blue whale cannot fight back because it is not in it's nature to fight. The blue whale's shape allows it to swim away from any predators. A mother whales travel in groups with thier young. If an enemy attacks the baby whale. The mother whales will protect it.
They don't need it. Blue whales are, by far, the largest animal to have ever existed, and can get up to about 100 feet long. The only predators that even come close are great white sharks and killer whales, which are about a fifth to a quarter of that length, at most.

Switchblades are illegal. If you're caught carrying on you could be charged. Get an assisted opening folder instead.
More than likely it is perfectly legal to do so. To carry concealed you would undoubtedly need a license of some sort, however the last timed I checked open carry was legal. Check with local law enforcement for up-to-date information before doing so.
It's always better to avoid injuring another, but defending yourself, even with deadly force, is appropriate.
Only as much force as is necessary to stop the assailant. In defending yourself or another you cannot use excessive force against an attacker. For example, you cannot take an attacker's life unless it is clear he will, by his actions, take yours or another's And you must be able to prove in a court...

Silly. Spitting could not reasonably be called 'self-defense'.
The workplace injury must have happened in the normal course of employment while performing assigned duties. So workplace fights and crimes are excluded.
Concealed weapons are against the law. You can carry a pocket knife as many people do, but something with a fixed blade, a more than three inch long blade, or a speciality knife such as a butterfly or switchblade knife, are against the law (in America anyway).
People who get in trouble for defending themselves do so because they either are not able to prove their case in court, or because they used more force than necessary in defending themselves. In a case of self defense you must be able to adequately articulate everything that led up to the...
1. You must be able to give a full and detailed exact account of what lead to the situation. 2. You must also be able to give an exact account of both you and your opponent's words and actions that lead to a fight, and that you did everything you possibly could to avoid a fight. 3. You must be...
  == Answer ==   Well, IJ just chambered a revolver in 32 SW short, and they certainly weren't the only company that did. Maybe people bought them for self-defense and maybe for plinking or keeping possums out of the henhouse. Paraphrasing "Cartridges of the World", the 32 SW probably ranks...
yes, nearly anything can be used for self defense
  == Answer ==   You are responsible for your own actions regardless of self induced anything. Depending on the state laws this could result in conviction for manslaughter, murder one or two, criminaly negligent homicide etc. This is a felony , a serious crime. The sole defense I can think...
Only if it can be proven in a court of law that the actions were deemed reasonably justified in keeping yourself from harm...key word being "reasonably". Just don't abuse your right to do this (no matter what you use to do so). The best way I have found out questions like this is to visit some self...
When someone attacks you first.just make sure you have proof that it was self-defence but yes if someone attacks you physically first.
Shooting anyone is bodily harm and possession with a weapon if you don't kill them. If you kill them you will go to prison for either manslaughter or 2nd degree murder. It's not worth it. One person attacking another person without a reason is an offence and you can press charges against them. I'd...

It all depends on many factors and you will find someone to argue that "their" form of martial arts is the best for self-defense. Many martial art's studios are training for competition rather than reality-based self-defense.Personally, I train in Krav Maga since it is not designed for competition,...
Swans have beaks and such to protect themselves, but they would normally fly away since they are not very good at self defense.
It is possible. There are laws on the use of lethal force which must be followed.
First and the most obvious, you can get a gun. Next, you can get pepper spray or a tazer gun. You can also learn any kind of martial art or boxing. Hope this helps! Another answer: It is not a good idea for any civilian to carry a gun. And there is no need to spend a lot of money on a good self...
