Note to self, stay out of Stand Your Ground states [View all]
In states with Stand Your Ground laws, a person can be shot dead for being perceived as being threatening. If your murderer is put on trial, the trial is not about whether or not the guy who took your life actually shot you. Rather, the trial is about the murder victim. If the dead person could be perceived as being a threat to the murderer, then sociopaths can get away with murder. Best to stay out of Stand Your Ground states.
