I think the Castle Doctrine law does this in FL but I'll bet this case predates that. But what caught my eye: They killed his DOGS? In the movie "Shooter" The main character takes his vendetta to the bad guys in a major way....because (as he said in the movie) You don't understand! THEY KILLED THE DOG!!! A sentiment I can completely understand.

Seems to be a theme in movies and life lately.

I've been following this case, as I live probably only a few miles from where this happened.
The news media down here seem to have gone out of their way to paint Mr. Borden as an odd, not-well-liked, eccentric loner. That may well be the case; I don't know. I was away on vacation when this verdict came down, and returned to work July 2 to find a recap in The Palm Beach Post's Sunday edition. I was elated!
I did not necessarily agree with the number of shots fired -- people have been critical of the 9 shots that followed up the "initial 5"... But then, I wasn't there, I did not feel the fear for my life that Mr. Borden must have felt (car full of unknown number of known gang members!), and perhaps there was movement in the car that looked like someone about to get out with a gun, I dunno.
What I do know is that despite all the doubt that the MEDIA put out there about the justifiability of the total number of shots (14), [i]a jury that heard ALL the facts and ALL the testimony decided Mr. Borden was not guilty of murder.
In my book, he's a freakin' HERO! He dispatched members of the Sur 13 gang, a nationwide gang of violent criminal thugs. He helped society by killing these worthless . He has paid an enormous price for it. (I don't know where he's even living, now -- and he'll surely have to move away now anyway, because the thugs still rule the streets where he lives, and he'll be under constant threat. Then again, who knows where would be safe for him, now.)
Anyway, Mr. Borden, if you're out there reading this; thank you for what you did, even though you didn't mean it as a "public service." I believed in you from the beginning, and I'm very glad you remain a free man.
