The prosecution said the incidents, according to law, are irrelevant in a
criminal trial because Fish had never met Kuenzli prior to the two men
meeting at the trailhead."
This can be turned around in the defenses' favor. Lacking such
knowledge, a reasonable man could not have known Kuenzli's bizarre
and extremely-aggressive behavior toward him did not reflect a serious
"threat of death or serious bodily injury".
How do you know Kuenzli's behavior was bizarre and extremely
aggressive? Only because Fish says so.
How do we know it wasn't? Only because you insinuate it?
Why did Fish wait an hour before reporting the killing?
Unless one has been trained, and even then, killing a fellow human being often creates a shock reaction. The killer may be unaware of the passage of time, sitting somewhere, pretty number, trying to get his head back together.
Any military combat soldier with experience can tell you about that first "kill" that they actually witness. A close up kill. Seeing their shot hit, and the other human being go down.
In fact, hunter's, the first time they kill often have similar reactions.
For someone in a defensive situation it is even more impactful. The 'enemy' is dead...and that could be you, but it isn't. He's dead, you are not.
The person is torn between remorse for killing and elation at being alive after risk of injury or death. That paradox, the dichotomy, is very much like the classic cognitive dissonance. You remember the Mule equal distance between two equally attractive piles of hay, that starves to death because he cannot make up his mind which pile to go to.
That can lock a person in one place for some time.
And I presume, since he was hiking it may have taken time to leave the area. I don't recall if the death was instantaneous. Or if it took time and Fish might have been trying to help.
I'll see if I can catch up on the actual case.
Was Fish even wearing a watch?
Darned if I know. He may be a vicious insane killer for all I know, BUT trying him here...especially by scum such as Lee is a bit much for a civilized person to just stand by and accept.
We only know what we know about this case so far. If anyone has a link to more information I'd love to see it.
Your point though is well taken. In shock time can do all kinds of odd things....moments appear to one as hours, hours like seconds, startling one with "what has happened."
But then Lee has no concept of normal human psychological reactions. He could tell us the ratio of stomach acid production to 18 Big Macs though, I'm sure.
