  •  The main problem (0+ / 0-)

    Is that the shooter can make up any set of facts and since the legal standard for a self defense is so low, it is nearly impossible to overcome since Florida law effectively presumes self defense as an element of the crime.  Here the shooter doesn't have to prove self defense, only create a doubt that it might have been self defense to be acquitted.  So here, all the shooter has to do is say that his victim attacked and reached for something and your daughter's killer goes free.  

    The problem is the absurd legal standard and burden Florida uses.

    Touch all that arises with a spirit of compassion. An activist seeks to change opinion.
