If that happened, then the danger has passed and anything more than an attempt at physical restraint may be legally considered too much. It's difficult to know where that line is drawn.
But would breaking a wrist be a guarantee in stopping his attackers hell bent on killing him? Remember, he was 1 man against 2 attackers and according to him, they were relentless. He even struck his car key through the cheek of one of his attackers but it only worsened everything. If the right opportunity to eg disarm an opponent does not present itself, you would be forced to do what you thought best to save your life. He himself didn't escape unscathed. He had been stabbed, suffered a broken nose and a few broken ribs and bruises. He was fighting for survival, nothing else. There were initially 4 gang members, only 2 prompted to attack and the other 2 fled(and were apprehended)when patrolling police officers came across the scene.

No different than the laws of any other country. That's why it's fucking ridiculous. SA isn't a shithole to live in like most of africa, which is why this kind of stupidity is astonishing.

Sorry for this man... Absolutely terrible!

But in all honesty laws are not what people idealize them as. As soon as you make a law you essentially are drawing a line in the sand. What I mean by this is it creates black and white, right or wrong and in most situations causes worse behavior than previously established.

The issue is the law is suppose to be enforced and then executed by just people. However, just people cannot be just when it comes down to survival or status. So how much money can be made for the state or just blind following of the law because it is the easiest least amount of work is what you get.

This rant is weird because not too long ago someone asked if they would save someone being mugged by killing the perp and I said no just because of this result. It's sad but there really aren't too many good laws anymore.

It sucks that the laws are hypocritical. I never understood how an original victim can become a suspected and convicted.

And coming from a black man, the OP isn't racist. It's fucking bullshit that his uncle is getting a murder charge for defending himself. South Africa has to be a fucked up place.

Don't understand how anyone can judge self-defense as murder. If you are attacked by someone and did not give the attacker any reason to come after you, I think you should be in the clear, unless of course you end up killing the attacker in a very menacing way. It is hard to guess how anyone would react to getting attacked, and being stabbed, by someone. Some people might just do enough to stop the attack while others might take it as a "it's me or him" situation and end up killing the attacker. No way to determine when you go from just defending yourself to actually wanting to kill the other guy. It is a very complicated issue, but if I was to judge a case like this I would probably side with the initial victim.

Truth be told, I thought the same...

Back to the topic, first and foremost, I appreciate the title of your thread. As for it's contents...

Kinda bullshit, but if that's the case and your judicial systems mirrors the states, a jury of his peers will see it as such too. But, if your Uncle went into it with the intent to kill these individuals, then the line gets a little skewed.

Self defense is exactly that...defense. I understand the muggers had the intent to do harm and the implements to bring it about, but that's because they saw a weakened prey, and it was 2-1. Perhaps by proving dominance/standing ground, they'd have just fled? Guilty of assault, and nothing more?

The fact that he killed both doesn't help his cause either. After one attacker was removed he could've subdued the other til help arrived...that sorta thing.

My stance on it is they went looking for trouble, and it bit'em on the ass. Good riddance.

I don't know how screwed up laws are around the US and other parts of the world but my uncle is about to be sentenced for murder for beating up and killing 2 muggers armed with knives because the jury deemed his actions to be "too extensive" as he is an mma instructor aka my former sensei, and they felt that he was capable of stopping his assailants(armed with knives) without killing them with his years of knowledge and experience in mma. Granted the one attacker was 17 and the other 20. So to sum it up: A 53 year old man with a leg brace gets attacked at the beach at night by 2 muggers armed with knives, who incidentally managed to stab him in the thigh in the process of trying to KILL HIM and his actions are deemed as unnecessary and "racist" because his attackers were black individuals involved in gang initiation killings...

Thing I'm getting at is this. In which part of the world is the law actually put into place to protect the rights of individuals and not the criminals? It seems like reading up on news from around the world that no matter the country you live in, the law only serves to protect a select few members of society.

Edit: Please note that this isn't meant to turn into a racist argumentative thread.
Sorry to say it, but your Uncle deserves everything he gets if he beat them up and murdered them. 2 wrongs don't make a right.

Do you know how they died? What were their injuries?

It's not fair that he's in trouble for self-defense but you ave to ask whether he overstepped whats reasonable and what is excessive.

Incapacitating them would have made more sense. Severly injure the bastards.

Manslaughter might be more appropriate.
