“Lopez isn’t the first person Dunn has shot and killed. The commissioner accidentally shot and killed someone when he was 19 years old.”
$20 ax. Store insurance covers that ax. A lot will say, “Yay, an ax was SAVED!” or “That bullet saved an expensive trial” (Stand Your Ground).
But no. Vigilante style justice has no place in a civil society, even if sanctioned by law (for now).
Stand Your Ground is a VERY powerful law in FL. Even with video, the commissioner can claim fear and not have any consequences.
I’m not against Castle Doctrine laws done right. Florida’s though too Wild West.
Politically it would have been bad not to. Midterms are coming and putting that situation as a perfect example of Stand Your Ground done right, as the local Sheriff did, would have lost votes.
