No need to pull the trigger from what I saw in the video. I was not with the situation, this is just a observation from the video material.

Who knows what went through the "defenders" head at that moment thought when he pulled the trigger.

For those who are saying he should be charged, he was and was found guilty. There has been a trial.

I don't understand the title "depsite" stand your ground. This was not stand your ground. Stand your ground means you have no duty to retreat. This bad guy retreated, so it was over right there. BUT, I can also see how the guy, being comitted on the draw, would shoot too. Cops do it in many shootings when you slow them down. Even if they guy drops the knife/gun mid-air, they unload until the commitment is done.( Once decision has been made)

From your thread



However, because of some ludicrous law, the shooter won't or can't be charged.


Not the case after all.

He shoulda aimed low.....bounce the first two off the pavement in front of the perps legs or feet...


Following stupid advice like that is what gets law-abiding firearms owners into trouble.

Hold on minute, maybe we should base our laws off cartoons. It works in them.

I believe society decided shooting at a person's feet to make a point isn't something to allow.

No you're not, you're an internet yahoo giving lousy advice about how to discharge a firearm.

Maybe tell them to wave it in the air first and yell, 'Yee-haw', before blasting the pavement and sending stray projectiles everywhere.

If we decide we are in a war in society then so be it. But until then ...

If the whole country is going to be inner city Chicago then remove some laws and see what becomes of it.

As an internet expert in self defense, I can safely say that the best form of defense is Kobra-Kai martial arts.

Always go for the knee.

If that move doesn't work?

Then a back-flip with a drop kick taught by Jean-Claude Van Damme school of bad assery.

Yes, it's bad. What the soldiers have now

Talk about war in society...a spiritual war....now the soldiers in black ops are modified...I saw them ahead of me on the obstacle course....we did crab walk for an eighth...then run backwards then on the ground....but them boys...

They did stuff I shouldn't say.....they were modified.....ok...they could run on all fours.....more but ...naw

We think DNA mod.....they are undefeatable....the normals would last 2 seconds...the paradigm has changed since the Giant of Kandahar over yonder.....

Have fun rotting in a cell and hiding from the booty warriors the rest of your wonderfully fantastic life.

Unless of course, bootywarriors are your thing.
