The right to self-defense is perhaps the most sacred right we have.
Between that, and freedom of speech, I am not quite sure which one takes the top spot…
Chrystul Kizer was allegedly raped and sex-trafficked by Randy Volar at the age of 16. In response to this she allegedly killed Volar, set fire to his house, and ‘stole’ his vehicle in order to escape.
Now she faces charges of 1st degree murder at the hands of the state.
If what Chrystul alleges is true, then she did nothing wrong. Her defense is trying to use a very specific law adopted in 2008 which would exonerate her under provisions laid out specifically for victims of human trafficking.
I will say what I said yesterday: this country desperately needs to get over these bleeding heart liberal notions that every life is sacred, that every life will be missed, that every life deserves our sympathy….
Not all taking of life is murder—some of it as witnessed in the Rittenhouse case is merely a matter of taking out the trash.
If what Chrystul Kizer alleges is true, then she did absolutely nothing wrong, and in fact she should be awarded a Congressional medal for what she did.
Failure to recognize this makes us a nation of the worst sort; a nation that places the letter of the law over virtue, truth, honesty, and above all—justice.
The very fact that there had to be a special provision passed in 2008 recognizing the ‘privilege’ of a victim of human slavery to kill the person who enslaved them should give us reason for pause.
Why does it even have to be said that someone in this situation has a right to kill the perpetrator? They have every God given right, and those who fail to recognize it are a Godless people.
Here’s more on her potentially precedent setting case:

This is Chrystul Kizer of Kenosha, WI. In 2018 at the age of 17, she shot and killed the man that held her captive and sexually abused her for over a year then was found guilty of 1st degree murder.
I hope we can all fight for this girl’s right to defend herself. pic.twitter.com/yQ6SgaE7Pz

The Kenosha News reported on June 25th:
Prosecutors plan to appeal the ruling that opened the possibility that Chrystul Kizer — accused of murdering a Kenosha man who had been filming sex with her and other underage girls — could use an affirmative defense for sex trafficking victims at her trial.
Kizer made her first court appearance in Kenosha County since the state Appellate Court ruling in early June. The decision by the state District II Court of Appeals found Kizer may be able to use an defense open to sex trafficking victims at her trial if she is able to show her actions were a direct result of the trafficking she experienced. At trial the defense, if allowed, would be similar to a self defense argument.

I have repeatedly posted and kept updating about the Chrystul Kizer case.
I’m grateful that this brave survivor is finally getting the attention that she deserves. pic.twitter.com/RnMSokRY4e

NBC News had more details:
Kizer is awaiting trial following her release from the Kenosha County Jail last June after the case drew interest from community groups and celebrities, and supporters helped raise her $400,000 bail, which was lowered from $1 million.
Her situation also drew comparisons to that of Cyntoia Brown, who was convicted as a teenager of murdering a man she said had hired her for sex and was released from prison in 2019 after then-Tennessee Gov. Bill Haslam commuted her life sentence.
