If shooting is justified, retreat is not a viable option.
SYG just codifies this.
But if you are not defending your client under Florida’s SYG law, and it is that law that provides for an immunity from prosecution, then how can Mark O’Mara be filing for an immunity from prosecution hearing in April.
I have never understood SYG, maybe you can explain it to me.
In your home, there is an obvious aggressor and an obvious defender.
On the street, s*** starts all kinds of ways. If you are carrying, that still does not mean that you ought to walk into obvious trouble. In fact, I’ve always been taught that, when you are carrying, you should go the extra mile to stay out of trouble.
When trouble finds you, that’s different. But does SYG mean that, if you start a fight you can’t finish that you have deadly force as a backup? That doesn’t seem right.
