He sure did. It’s tough to put myself in the same position, but I bet I’d have drawn the moment I felt my life in danger, not minutes down the line with beating after beating.
Which is, of course, why us Pennsylvanianers need to put pressure on our reps to pass HR 40 (Stand your Ground), which only last night was guaranteed a vote next week!

reps to pass HR 40 (Stand your Ground),
I've always wondered as to why the government wants us to be victims. I have two theories:
- the government values its precious beloved black criminals over the hardworking taxpayers that it parasitizes. This kind of makes sense in that there is a fat government bureaucracy designed to deal with criminals (police, judges prosecuting attorneys, etc.) all of whom are highly paid, and if suddenly the peasants were able to deal with the criminals themselves, then there would not be the demand for these bureaucrats or
- if the government generally wants us peasants unable to defend themselves. If we're defenseless, then we can't defend against the government's organized thugs, and since all they care about is the safety of themselves, the more helpless we are the better off they are
Whatever the reason, there is an blatantly obvious double standard applied to a citizen killing an attacker defending himself and cops shooting whomever they feel like.
