Stopping an attacker
One thing to consider - not all states in the U.S. (forget about the rest of the world just for this one point) permit one to use lethal force if necessary to prevent the murder or rape of his neighbor.

I have been waiting for your answer for Noahides on this. In self-defense or defense of a third party from murder or rape, is one permitted, discouraged, encouraged, or forbidden to use force to stop it? Is this the heroism you are speaking of? I live in Ohio, where one probably would go to prison if he were to use force in someone's defense if it significantly harmed the perpetrator of the crime. What about robbery? May I use force in Noahide law to protect my money?
