Since Stand Your Ground laws are a hot topic right now, I figured I'd offer this case for debate. Both people involved are the same race, so that card cannot be played. The video shows everything right up until the moment she pulled the trigger.

The video won't play for me. But it did say the man approached her at a gas station, making sexual advances. After repeatedly telling him no, she pulled a shotgun out of her trunk. The Man then lunged at her with both a knife and an umbrella. I would have shot his ass too. Her life was threatened.



You know, studies show People panic more when someone has a knife than they do when someone has a gun.

Dang it I can't see the video. If he came at her with a knife like witnesses said then she has the right to defend herself. I love how his family is saying he was playful... Because you totally play around with a complete stranger making sexual comments and think its ok. I think shooting multiple times was over kill




Hit enter too soon.



Anyway I get why she would shoot multiple times though.

I feel this is difficult to say. It seems like they were just arguing or something and he wasn't really doing anything. At least until she got the gun out.

He playfully lunges at People holding a knife in his hand while making sexual advances? :roll:



I don't believe it for a second. I wouldn't have gotten help from inside where he was at, either. The last time he came out, he had another younger Man with him, that doesn't show me there was safety inside if he brought another with him and continued his verbal assault outside.

Where it comes is that the law says she doesn't have to look for help, all he has to is what he did- lunge and jab with knife and she had legal means to kill him.
