Although, I don't think "Stand your ground" can count on someone else's property when they clearly are not displaying any weapons. This
shouldn't be able to stick, but then again, it is Texas...You know we lost JFK in Texas, you'd of thought they'd of matured more since then?!!
The way the law is written, "Stand Your Ground" applies to 3 very specific places, and someone else's own property isn't one of them, nor is the
public street in front of their house, nor is the park. No where but 3 specific places, none of which was the location of this incident.
There is a certain class of people who fancy themselves "badasses" who will never mature. There used to be a saying in the Appalachians - "I ain't
bad, but them that are know better than to screw with me". "Badasses" try to stack the odds in their favor, and if they can't, they slink away. In
this case we had two opposing factions of "badasses", each thinking they had the deck stacked, and both finding out different.
