#2 Lt me get this straight, he was convicted for killing a (mostly peaceful) terrorist that was piercing people with a (mostly peaceful) knife?

The antique tusk was hanging on the wall as decoration near where our miscreant grabbed a knife and started running amok, rj. Weapon of opportunity.

#7 Weapon of opportunity.

Improvise, adapt and overcome.

If I were the Royal Advisor, I'd suggest to Queenie that she create an Order of the Narwhal to be awarded for acts of exceptionally stylish bravery.
