you can commit murder and get away with it over something as trivial as parking a car
Human life has no value to gun worshippers, only their ego.

Looks like a murder
The threat was over, yet he still fired.
Probably a little adrenalized from being pushed to the ground so hard.
But the threat was over, and he had control, being a weaponized self appointed hall monitor.
TO me it looks like a murder.

if you punch me I'm going to beat your ass, plain and simple. I don't carry but I'm also FULLY capable of defending myself in a physical confrontation so I have no idea what it's like to be the weaker person
the average person who doesn't have 15 of competitive combat sport experience under their belt, well I have no idea what's going through their head

I think it was unjustified, as the guy backed away when he pulled the pistol. That said he was assaulted as the guy blind-sided him with basically a football hit. Given the man's previous history of hassling people in the parking lot I think he should be charged with homicide. He was looking for trouble and eventually found it.
I do find the coverage bothers me in how they often represent the victim as completely blameless; he was defending his "family" - one of his kids was in the car but the woman was not his wife. Other details are impossible to find, there were other children but it's unknown if they were his or not.
Look like the stand your ground rule is why he isn't being charged. If he did it once he'll likely do it again and this may encourage others to go further than they might otherwise in a tight situation.

It appears all the people who were saying this guy will be charged are wrong.
SYG appears to be a valid defense according to the authorities down there in Florida.
