    Good: FL Jogger Cleared in Self Defense Shooting

    Thomas Baker was out jogging when he was punched in the face by an attacker. Baker shot his attacker dead.


    Baker told police he reached for his gun when the teen punched him in the face. Baker has a concealed weapons permit.

    The teen was hit four times in the chest, back and buttocks. He died at the scene.

    Good to hear! This is a major victory for people who worry about whether it's "reasonable" to fire at an unarmed assailant.

    Probably helped that the "teen" was an adult - 18 yo.

    Happened in the "Town and Country" area. That used to be really nice, but it seems to be heading downward.
    (English is the second language there now)
    I understand it happened at 1:30 am and I thought I heard there were two assailants. Only one was shot.

    Glad the good guy survived.
