And, supposedly in the recent incident, despite the sheriff’s statement, it wasn’t SYG in that case either. Not sure, but from what I’ve seen (scant info) that seems to be the case. Legal eagles will sort it out. Maybe.
It wasn't. The sheriff is an idiot. He was saying uninformed things about the law.
This is not a stand your ground case, regardless of how it comes out, because the shooter was on the ground and didn't have an opportunity to safely retreat. Assume for the moment that he was really facing a deadly threat when he fired. Then how could he have gotten away when he was sitting on the ground and the attacker was a few feet away?
