    This has been making the rounds again. :)


    "Han Shot First.

    There is no question about it.

    And in 1977, no one questioned it.

    However, the legal question remains, was Han Solo legally justified in killing Greedo (Provided the Empire’s Doctrine of Fear had similar Common Law traditions)?"

    It's a no-brainer, if someone is making a potentially deadly threat
    or clearly going to attack, shoot them. (in most contexts)
     
  4. Eh, that spaceport town was like the wild west. Shoot 1st and live to ask questions afterwards.

    The readers' digest version is that Greedo was clearly threatening an unprovoked, imminent, and immediate Deadly Force by having his blaster pointed at Solo and blathering about looking forward to shooting him. Solo's Duty to Retreat was negated by a combination of the immediacy of the threat and being "trapped" in a booth, back against a wall. Conclusion: Good Shoot.

    I am sorry but, Greedo, famed bounty hunter, already had Han 'under the gun', pointing his pistol right at Han.

    Simple case of Self Defense when Han shot first.

    Sorry, Kirk, but this time you missed the point. Greedo had ties to Jabba, an obvious Islamic name. Since we have no evidence that Jabba had been radicalized at this point, or that Greedo had be recruited by ISIL, Hans initiative in shooting first would be entered as a hate crime against intergalactic muslims.

    Apparently Tatooine had more law enforcement than I thought.
