It's called a "crime of passion." And yes, the the world is a better place without the late, unlamented Mr. Nash. No loss. If Mr. Diallo needs help with money for a defense, I predict that the GoFundMe for his cause will set records . . .

and that's why they had to arrest him.

I sincerely hope the bad guy did threaten the husband in some way, not that I want the husband to get hurt but it would help his case a lot if the bad guy attacked first. Then it could be considered self defense. Regardless.. if there are any charges brought against the husband I hope he gets off.

Exactly. As I said earlier I'm on this guy's side and hope he gets off too. But this is not even close to a self defense claim.


Is a rapist walking the streets a threat as another poster asked? Sure he is in the same way that a drunk who routinely drives is a threat. That does not give you the right by law to take a tire iron to that guy either.

This looks like a job for jury nullification.

Freakin' perp has a miles long rap-sheet and thank god the gal wasn't home alone and had a friend help protect her.

If he shows up, catches the guy in the hallway and tries to apprehend him and then a fight starts then he's got his shot at acquittal.

Problem is going to be in what he said when the cops showed up. That's probably where he went wrong.

Yeah, but that's not what was represented.


The husband's son:


"I think any husband would do the same thing as what he did," Abdul Diallo said. "You see your wife being attacked and sexually harassed, you're going to beat on the person. You are not just going to sit there and let the person leave or whatever. So I don't think he's wrong."


But his dad didn't SEE anything. It was over when he got there.


I know that shouldn't matter, but it does.


CNN gives a better run-down than yahoo, btw.

Of course it matters. Internet lawyers are so funny some times. They haven't a clue how the law works, then they complain that the laws are horrible. Maybe if they were mistaken for a perp and got the schitt kicked out of them they would understand the reason these laws are in place.

The funny part is that these are the same people who chastise others for thinking with emotion instead of logic.

The cops should've coached him like they would do if for one of their own who was jammed up.


"Now when the elevator door opened, the guy shoved you aside and jumped at your wife and screamed, "I ain't done with you, ****!


And that's when you feared for her life and yours and you hit him, right?"

If Diallo were only TG, then he would be cheered on morning TV shows, magazine covers, and given a white house special award & event and charges dropped. God help us if the rapist were part of LGBT b.c then they'd turn the true story into some BS hate story.

Not really. What you're talking about isn't really logic, it's a strict legal definition. What some of us are using is common sense in that this man attacked and killed a man who raped his wife. Though he didn't witness the rape, he received the call from his wife and rushed home in an agitated state giving him time to agonize over what could be happening to his wife. When he arrived and his wife identified her rapist, he snapped and attacked. If on a jury, I'd go with not guilty.
