So how often does this defense come up in real life? I don’t want to read too much into the choice of a superhero rather than the regular people the rest of the examples are, but…
I would bet that this defense motivates a lot of prosecutors to simply not bring cases.
If Edward Snowden ever comes back to the US, I bet this’ll be his defense.
What if you ‘sincerely believe’ there is no other option, but there is?
