    He's a stupid troller and he got what he was looking for....... and someone died. Now he can go 'bait' his guards and his cellmates. He'll see how far that gets him.

    I always have a morbid curiosity of what these morons look like:


    Chaplain Scott is right, he should have opted for a mental deficiency defense. He certainly looks the part.

    Was there really any doubt about the verdict? I think not. If I was on that jury, I would have come to the same conclusion the whack job was guilty as well.

    The problem with "Stand Your Ground/Castle Doctrine" laws would be that people do not understand the content and context of them. They believe it is acceptable to go out, really confront someone, use deadly force and then scream "self defense" when the opposition retaliates. There is a fine line in this, and it must be applied to the real SYG situations, not used as a defense when someone has initiated the action as in this case.

    There will be another famous case in Florida where the SYG laws will be put on trial. It could have an impact on how those laws are interpreted and may result in changes in them to restrict what can and cannot be done in a defensive situation. Or it may result in doing away with them entirely, because the anti gun people see them as a "licence to kill" and they will use these cases to further their agenda of banning firearms.

    He should be put away for life. Castle doctrine went out the window the moment this dumb @ZZ stepped onto his neighbors property.

    Good for him. I hope he stays there. This was thought out murder. He stayed around and pushed these drunken men over the edge. He was dying to use his pistol. I pray for the wife and family of the other party.

    I saw this coming from the first time it was reported. He was looking for a confrontation from the start.

    While the entire sittuation is bad for gun owners in general, I would say this outcome is good for the debate raging right now about SYG/CD laws. When the anti's call them shoot first laws, we can point to this guy and say, nope, you do that and those laws don't apply.

    I wonder if the media will pick up on that, or if they will brush it under the rug and ignore it since it doesnt' fit the story they are trying to tell?
