  •  So, you want to take the responsibility (6+ / 0-)

    of escalating a physical confrontation ? You want to take the responsibility of killing someone who may just be drunk and having a bad day, but not trying to kill you ?

                        Just my two cents,

    Torture is ALWAYS wrong, no matter who is inflicting it on whom.

      There's nothing you could possibly add to that.

      trying to kill you, you aren't allowed  to shoot them, and even then it should be the absolute very last resort.

      Michigan has even had a SYG law since 2006, yet most people in the state have no idea. Maybe we aren't as crazy as Floridians, or perhaps our police and prosecutors do their jobs properly, but either way it hasn't been an issue here.

      •  Perhaps not as much racism (0+ / 0-)

        Florida has a major racist problem.

        you aren't allowed to shoot them?  Really?

        Well I guess no one ever ignored that aspect of SYG.

        RIP Trayvon Martin.

        RIP Jordan Russell Davis.

        RIP all the others whose names did not make the news.

      •  Wrong, in Florida it is already precedent that (0+ / 0-)

        you can successfully claim SYG even if the other person is running away from you and you shoot them in the back a half dozen times.

        You have watched Faux News, now lose 2d10 SAN.
