Three Questions

Mike Tuggle has three questions by which we should analyze the larger story when we hear stories of atrocities and violence:
1 - Was the person being attacked on his own property at the time of the attack, or on the property of the person attacking?

2 - Was the person being attacked in a place he didn't belong, or was he invited there to assist the owner?

3 - Did the person who was in a place he didn't belong stand to gain from his intrusion?

These three questions are a big help in seeing things from the defender's point of view, and really put actual motivations on center stage, rather than being shuffled out of view.
