Rebbi is the one who says Itzumo shel yom mechaper, and he explicitly
says that one who eats on YK is automatically forgiven the moment he

Zev Sero               I have a right to stand on my own defence, if you
zev at sero.name          intend to commit felony...if a robber meets me in
                        the street and commands me to surrender my purse,
                        I have a right to kill him without asking questions
