Well it looks like we have another case of homeowner in waiting for someone to walk into a portion (in this case, the garage) of the house and then shooting.http://www.cbsnews.com/news...in-recent-shootings/
. The defendant in this case is using the "Stand Your Ground" defense. Hopefully Nick will see this and be able to either verify my thoughts or tell me I'm crazy but in my book, this does not meet the standards for the defense. You set up a scene where you are literally opening up an opprtunity to draw a pigeon into the area 1. Leaving the garage door open and 2. leaving a purse (literally a valuable item) out in the open for anyone to see. Then you have surveillance devices set up? This seems to be the same as baiting an area to bring deer into range for the slaughter. Then firing without announcing your presence? I'm sorry but by everything I have learned in the past, this is murder. Yes, the shooter had the right to defend his home but he did not, at the time he fired, have justification.
Nick, based upon the linked article, (and it has much the same information as other articles) have I made a valid disection?
