How far can you go in defending yourself and others?

Like most in Yuma, you likely go about your daily routine unafraid of becoming the target of another's threats or aggression. Yet you never know when you might cross paths with an individual that is seemingly intent on doing harm to you and/or others. Your natural reaction may be to defend yourself, yet the fear may also exist that if you must use force against another, you could end up facing criminal charges yourself. Is this true?

Authorities turn the tables on would-be patrolman

Oftentimes, people hear stories of arrests made in Yuma and immediately may question why authorities needed to apprehend the accused. There may be instances where the old adage of the punishment not fitting the crime might seem to apply to a case. Yet despite one's beliefs that law enforcement intervention may not have been needed in a particular incident, authorities are tasked with maintaining a peaceful atmosphere in the communities in which they serve. If they believe that one's actions could present a potential danger to that peace, then they may feel justified in detaining him or her.
