    You lay a hand on me much less push me down I will come out shooting to kill.

    Nobody has to wait until their life is in inevitable danger to shoot. When he got pushed down he had no idea what the guy would do.

    Why don't you go shove a cop to the ground and see if he doesn't come up popping hot lead at your ass.

    This misses the point, as usual.

    One person pushing or shoving another person is in of itself a crime – if individuals stop committing that crime, then no one needs to worry about being shot.

    Should have…

    Could have…

    Would have…

    That’s not how the law works.

    Mr. McGlockton committed the initial unlawful act, he placed himself in jeopardy, he alone is to blame.

    Don’t push someone else.

    Don’t shove someone else.

    That’s not difficult to understand.

    Then you got the story wrong.

    It's best to watch the video of it.

    McGlockton was backing away. Not towards drejka.

    I posted the video.

    And yes a tall man's normal stride can be several feet at a time.

    And that’s the problem with this unwarranted indictment: it needlessly muddies the legal waters as to how Floridians might lawfully use deadly force in self-defense.

    However much one might disagree with the Zimmerman verdict, it nonetheless set precedent in Florida self-defense case law this State attorney is failing to follow.

    The video tape over rides what investigators said.

    The self defense was the unarmed man defending the woman in the car.

    Which the video tape more than justifies.

    You don't get to pull your gun because you got punked.

    Self defense ended once he drew his gun and the unarmed man backed away
