Jacqueline Sauvage’s presidential clemency challenges self-defense issue

 

Charged with murder of her violent husband in October 2014,  Jacqueline Sauvage obtained a total presidential Amnesty from François Hollande last Wednesday. Qualified as great, just, wise and bold decision even though late for Marine Le Pen,  the decision of the french president was congratulated by most of political parties in France.

Same sentence as Jacqueline, ten years for killing a young burglar of 17 years old at his home.

 

Is self defense a right to kill ? This is the one of the toughest debates in the legal world.
