This is exactly what's wrong with "stand your ground" laws, there are NUTS like this who will use the law to get away with murder and present it as self-defense. Just like the Zimmerman case, the shooters were the aggressors who would later claim "self-defense".
A grade-school teacher shot dead in her own driveway. The backers of "stand your ground" laws like ALEC have blood on their hands. Too bad they don't have a conscience.

From what is shown in the video - he did not start the fight.
Can you tell me where exactly he started a fight? Which video and frame please.
Abduction or being chased on to the property...blah blah blah – that's irrelevant.
The location and the reason he shot are the few things that do matter.
And he did not throw rocks or taunt them with name calling as you are asserting. He told them to turn down the volume and then stood his ground on public property.
If you said you were a lawyer then I might be a little impressed. The fact that you are certified means very little to me after having seen countless videos of leo who do not follow the law because they do not understand it correctly.
You did misunderstand and please don't come back saying he broke a twig so he is liable for trespass. We both know what I meant.
He did not instigate anything but having them turn down the volume of their music. And he did not try to force them to turn down their music, that is what he called the police to do. He did try to force them to back up though and was justifiable.
From the looks of the video the man only wanted to stand his ground and he did not want to be forced to defend himself. I think you are projecting your own desires on to this man. He was clearly stressed and did not want to backdown but I think being kept up all night by obnoxious neighbors would cause that.

sounds alot more like premeditated murder ...
what a senseless and stupid reason to take the life of another human being over... never a justification for taking the life of another...

He was not trespassing, he was not what some poster tried to fabricate " trespassing with the intent to go armed" what the frack is that?
does that mean he was trespassing and he really really wanted (intended) to be armed but was not ? There is no such crime i have ever heard of.
