killing someone is always illegal. Isn’t it? I mean, you can argue that you shouldn’t be punished for it… or at least shouldn’t have the book thrown at you, but you’re basically saying, “I did this illegal thing, but you shouldn’t punish me because [self defense or whatever else].”Intent has a lot to do with how illegal something is.
If I trip and fall and kill someone that is an accident.
If I plan to kill someone. That is murder.
