A proposed change to the self-defense law in Missouri is raising alarms in the state. Critics worry that the proposed law, perhaps appropriately labeled Senate Bill 666, would let all hell loose in Missouri by encouraging murder and even justifying racist violence. Specifically, the bill would create a presumption of self-defense for people who use “physical or deadly force” against another person. Basically, anyone who commits an act of violence, including killing another person, can claim self-defense or defense of a third party, and that claim will be automatically presumed valid unless prosecutors can definitively prove otherwise.
