Jury now deliberating in James Menard trial
This is a neat one for Friday afternoon. Jury is currently deliberating.
Group including shooter go to somebody's apartment to confront who he believes where responsible in a previous robbery. The expected argument happens and one of the residents produces a toy gun. Shooter (not the home owner or welcomed guest) shoots three kills one.
He already tried with the Stand Your Ground law, which didn't work. No he is trying for Self-Defense.
IMO, having a gun (toy or real) in your house is perfectly OK. An aggressor should not be able to shoot you just because you are armed. If he pointed the toy gun at Menard I can see it getting a little muddy, but I have to side with the home residents on this one. We'll see what the jury comes back with
