The defender did gain from the situation. He gained his personal safety and security in a situation he didn't initiate or have any control over.
I also agree that the entire situation is very sad. The young man initiating the situation is part of a machine that threw him away long ago, and I find that very sad.
Society is broken in a very fundamental way, IMO.
That being said, I find a situation where a man defending himself wins to be as happy an ending as possible, even if the force initiator loses his life.
