    If you don’t like “Stand Your Ground” then try being polite and not pissing someone off.

    The “I’m not going to kick the bucket over there list”. I don’t even want to cross the border in the US anymore.

    Given the flying bullets, maybe “Duck it” might be appropriate.

    “Herd Leader?”

    Kinda right, considering the mindless herd!

     

    OMG!!

    Just how do you know what someone will claim was “impolite?”

    Or prove you weren’t….

    when you’re already dead?

     

    Having a slight shade of another color in your skin, praying in the wrong church, coming from a different country….

    even state, or family…..

    can really piss some people off.

    Do they have the right to shoot???

    Stand Your Ground is an great law. NC also exempts defenders from civil lawsuits if they meet the conditions of a self defense. BTW, NC presumes (with some conditions) that if somebody forcibly enters your home illegally, you are presumed to be in great physical or deadly danger and may use deadly force to stop the threat.

    I think most places allow deadly force against a home invader (unless it turns out later to have been a cop) and very few places will penalize a person for defending himself. The problem that most of the country had with the Florida law was that it allowed a man to instigate a conflict and then, when the other party responded violently, to kill the guy rather than take responsibility for his own actions.

    “Stand Your Ground” in Florida is not the automatic license to shoot to kill that everyone thinks it is. The most recent case being one where a man was stealing diapers from a WalMart, store employees were chasing him, and a customer tried to help. The customer swore that the alleged thief was reaching for a gun and shot the diaper guy (who died.) The customer has been arrested and charged with murder, because diaper guy had no weapon on him and no one else supported the shooter’s story about him reaching for a weapon.

    .

    And as far as the infamous case of the self-appointed watchman versus the young guy he shot and killed, watchman didn’t actually start the beat down. He challenged the young guy’s right to be there verbally. The young guy (who was on his cell at the time, talking to a girlfriend) told her he thought he was being stalked by someone looking for a target to molest, and he threw the first punch.

    So, returning to the ‘toon, we are over the heart attack, or just hinting around at it because we’re talking about ‘bucket lists’?
