    Trial of the Florida Man (Michael Drejka) begins tomorrow. You may recall him as the ‘handicap parking space’ guard at the neighborhood convenience store. Got shoved to the ground, feared for his life, got his pistol out and shot the aggressor dead.

    From what I know and from the video, no other details and certainly no sound, I’m leaning toward SYG and he gets off. Close, and again from the video and media reports.

    It will be interesting to see how this plays out.

    Did he use a Glock to shoot McGlockton?:confused:
    It’s not looking good for the defendant.

    My thoughts too.

    I remember when we discussed this before and watching the video. I would convict him.

    That's pretty much my thoughts on it too. He initiated the aggression. When it escalated, he went straight to deadly force.

    I bet he'd like to take pulling that trigger back.

    It's curtains for that dude if I was on the jury.

    Yeah, I never believed it was a good shoot or a good example of SYG.

    SYG was intended for the victims of aggression to be able to defend themselves. If you initiate a confrontation, then you are the aggressor. If you get your butt kicked, you have no right to claim SYG. SYG is what the victim was doing when he pushed that POS to the ground.
