    This is an important bit at the end of the article:

    Another high-profile Broward defendant invoking the law, James Patrick Wonder, is facing manslaughter charges in the death of a federal agent following a road rage incident in 2008. A judge is set to hear Wonder’s stand-your-ground defense next month.

    I wondered what happened with that guy. The whole thing screamed road rage on the part of the DEA agent.

    Seems to me that the prosecutors haven’t gotten the memo yet. I wonder how many cases they’re going to have to lose before they do?

    I am all for stand your ground. But, in this particular case, this was an extreme mis-use of the law and one that could make a case for overturning it.

    I know the man that was killed. Not real well, but well enough. He was with this guy’s wife. The wife had kicked her husband out or something. He held his wife at gunpoint, and threatened suicide. He then had her call John aka “Rocky” and then ambushed him. He confessed all of this to the police back in 2009. This was cold-blooded murder. This guy’s attorney must be a miracle worker to get all that thrown out.

    This guy set up everything for a confrontation and was emotionally unstable. Regardless of any stand-your-ground law, it IS NOT self-defense when you go looking for a fight.

    Sorry, but this one was not a win for gun-rights and is being spun here in South Florida as a reason to repeal the stand-your-ground law. This law is good and vital to protecting those acting in self-defense, but self-defense is the key word here.

Remember, I do this to entertain me, not you.
