No Hesitation in Legitimate Defense

"The Law" at New English Review's Iconoclast reports on the near-catastrophic terrorist attack on-board Northwest Airlines Flight 253 here.

Just as the Pope's body guards moved decisively and incisively once the "unbalanced" female attacker made her move Christmas Eve, as reported here, the hero of Flight 253, Jasper Schuringa, did not hesitate.

This is the essence of legitimate defense. No qualms, no double-mindedness, no rage; rather, an instantaneous knowing of how bad the consequences would be without doing the right thing.

Two last Must Reads from "The Law": Weapons of Musical Defense and Don't be a harbi!
