15. Yip, the Z "self-defense" sounds like the MENENDEZ bros being orphans

When does self-defense begin? What if the need for self-defense was precipitated by Z when he followed and encountered the other person? The other person was feeling threatened himself.

I've Googled to pin down whether the MENENDEZ bros actually asked for leniency based on their being "orphans" (after they killed the parents; instigated the orphaning). There were scattered references, some saying it was one of the juries asking for leniency on that basis. Couldn't pin it down.

Is there a parallel?
