      Lawful wounding occurs for example when nations have declared WAR against each other. Lawful wounding may also occur when a law enforcement officer inflicts injury in the course of his/her duty in order to protect the public.

      @Anyoko
      Some of these Penal codes don’t make sense but I believe the “unlawful wounding” charge is for the wound he caused to his baby…..but don’t you think it should have been attempted murder? ….and again if you look at the crime he committed…I can easily count more than 12 counts…all very serious…..enough to lock him up for life

      Anyway
      2021 vote PF (Edgar)

    This is guy is hard hearted of all the things pulling a trigger against a defenseless woman. No matter what grave differences they had in their relationship he should have resorted to shooting to death his ex-girl friend and wounding the child. The govt. should deal firmly with this gun culture in our country if left unchecked I would not be surprised it will soon turn into mass murders like what happened in Neveda, USA.
