I found if you could just tread the line of hostile witness rulings & I had my record book open,I was taking apart lawyer's who did'nt know about old but relevant common law precidents etc.
One case where a Biker with a 2℅ patch on his jacket tried to charge me with assault and assault with a weapon, etc etc.
I touched him 1st after he threatened to kill me(sect:20), my family and friends for not letting him into a club as per the posted rules.
In court I produced 4 cases that showed you can hit someone first if you feared for your safety due to the other person showing extreme physical or psychological aggression with menace and perceived intent to cause intimidation and bodily harm.
I did quash the charge despite his lawyer asking 5 questions 3 different ways. The lawyer tried to call hostile witness everytime I said I had already given an answer to that question,did you not hear me the first time.
The juddge sided with me and told that lawyer to move on to the next question, or face contempt charge's for wasting the courts time.
It was an exhausting case and Department of Public Prosecution used my case to help cement another Multi charges case they had against this Biker.
He's in the hole for 42 years without parole and if nature is kind,he rots in there.
The weapon I had used against him was a small powder spraying Fire extinguisher, it's contents and the cylinder as a force multiplier after warning him" back off".
I tell new guards & crowd controllers(old term-Bouncers), $200+ dollars in clothing mounted concealed or glasses cams and a practical martial art like Crav megar(spelling maybe wrong) or Russian Sambo can save a lot of grief at home and in court.
