In some states, there is a duty to retreat in situations where you think it may be appropriate to use self defense, Colorado is not one of those states. In certain states, the prosecution may raise the issue that you had available to you an exit or a way out to avoid the confrontation and if that significant enough depending on the individual state law, that may deteriorate your ability to raise self defense because that’s going to be looked at is to the reasonableness of your actions. In self defense, invariably it comes down to how reasonable were your actions in the face of the threat.
