    That’s the only beef I have with Florida’s stand your ground….this guy chased down the perp and shot him….he’d be the one on the run now….doesn’t matter if your property was going bye bye, as long as you were no longer in danger, you couldn’t legally shoot the asshole….smart thing was to get the hell out of dodge and hope no cameras caught you…

      Here in Tennessee, you can shoot to defend your life or somebody else’s, but not in defense of property.

        That’s where Asshole Jack comes in handy. :-)

        “Well, I feared for my life and kept shooting ’till I wasn’t scared no more, didn’t realize I was a mile from home by then.”

        In Texas, you can shoot to defend your property if it’s nighttime. But this wouldn’t fly. There was a case of someone shooting a guy stealing his pickup truck as he was driving away. The grand jury declined to indict.

          livelihood, truck, cell phone…

          I would obviously vote not guilty, day or night, but it depends on circumstance. If it was a couple of stupid kids taking a garden gnome, I would err to community service and a belt.

          For some reason I haven’t ever been selected for jury duty, wonder why?

            Same thought process at work as when we used to hang horse thieves. Depending on the circumstances, stealing a man’s horse could leave him destitute or dead.

Play nice.
