I pinky swear, your secret is safe. Self Defense is quite the
legal construct. Regardless of how stupid and morally deficient it was for Kyle to be there and to be armed, it examines the event in a vacuum void of those circumstances unless immediate provocation is established. The prosecution tried damn hard to establish that provocation, even to the point of violating the constitution and the judge's orders. In my opinion, evidently the jury's as well, they didn't put forth a very compelling argument in that regard.
