Mr. Narayan's quotation is relevant to my questions only as above.  My
questions have to do with self-defence, and whether Mr. Staines had a
firearm and tried to defend himself and his children from assault.    Mr.
Narayan's quotation seems to suggest Staines had a gun, which he, sleepily,
tried to use, which action of "challenged" the mob and led to his death.
Who wrote this palpable nonsens?   Suo motto eruption of their anger of last
18 years?   Has the mob been re-assembled now and asked about their calm and
deliberate opinion on their killing, and they replied,
"M'lud, it was a suo motto eruption of anger built up over 18 years, and
therefore a case of justifiable homicide."
