Bob Ingersoll

By day Bob Ingersoll was an attorney in the Cuyahoga County Public Defender Office, Appellate Division in Cleveland, Ohio, until he retired in 2009. But in the “Real World” he has also been a freelance writer since 1975, when he sold his first comic-book story to the late, lamented Charlton Comics. He’s still at it and, in addition to his long-running column “The Law Is a Ass” has sold stories to DC, Marvel, Innovation, Now Comics, Comico, Kitchen Sink and others; as well as co-authoring the novels Captain America: Liberty’s Torch and Star Trek: The Case of the Colonist’s Corpse. Bob is married with children, which is about as close to Al Bundy as he cares to get.

    Re self-defense, I am absolutely baffled when what you just said does not seem to apply in real life. How can somebody with a firearm initiate a confrontation against an unarmed person, who then fights back, and then claim he was in fear for his life so it was acceptable to kill the now-assailant?
    How can any judge listen to this defense and not throw it out on the basis of bovis fimus?
