If the father was 28 years old, how old was the "woman"?
At what age do girls start being referred to as "women"?

If that is not self defense of another what is. I hope he sues for false arrest. It would not matter if he was a convicted felon he rightfully defended the life of another. It is a lot better to stop a murder than to stand by and watch it happen, no matter who stops it. another case of gun beats knife. this is a situation where I always claim if you are legal to be on the street after you have served your time you have as much right to self defense as anyone else. the knife holder could have attacked the bystander next. They just had 19 people attacked and killed by a knife in Japan. being in jail you are supposed to have protection from the guards. I'm sure guards would be hard to find if the prisoners were armed. but after you get out of jail you still need to be able to protect yourself. If you can not behave your self then you go back to jail. but you still have the God given right to self protection.
