SHOULD it matter if a person's fear turns out to be false??? Is it important that person A truly felt afraid.......AND chose not to retreat, but chose to act??? I think society is better off if deadly force is used only where retreat is unavailable. Not fair to use hindsight to judge how valid fear was, but is fair to say deadly force OK only when retreat was an not an option.
