Although someone may kill someone in self-defense, this type of killing is not considered a crime like manslaughter is. The American justice system recognizes the right of someone to protect himself or herself from harm. The defendant must have believed that he or she was in imminent danger of harm and that a use of force was reasonably necessary.
