This doesn't make it acceptable in the least. I'd stop someone tickling me if I killed them, too. Does that make it acceptable? Of course not. Philwelch expressed it very well way back at the beginning: the force you apply to make something stop must be proportionate to what's going on. Kicking someone in the balls for tickling you (deliberately, accidental is of course an accident) is a vastly disproportionate response.
