Greater Danger Exception The greater danger exception allows you to shoot without target isolation if the consequence of not stopping the threat would be worse than the possibility of hitting an innocent person.
Imminent Threat An impending likelihood of trouble; in this context, “Imminent Threat” of death or great bodily harm to you or another is a justification for the use of deadly force.
Mediation A conflict resolution strategy to assist disputants in voluntarily reaching a mutually acceptable decision.
