Because if we could agree that a furiously vicious state of mind is understandable, then what he actually did (Being much less bloody) must be undeniably understandable.

Well it depends of the situation. If the assailant was incapacitated I don't think killing him would be a good thing. And it'd be considered murder by the US law. If however he was killed during a fight to save the victim, that would be understandable (and it'd hopefully be considered a valid case of defending a third party).
