    It's all in the eyes of the prosecutor, and fortunately Landa had witnesses to back him up. It helps that Landa had left a potential altercation and the other guy followed him as the agressor, not exactly the case in Z's incident.

    For all those who criticised FL's Stand-Your-Ground, it does work when applied to the right situation. I have a feeling Z will walk, on grounds of reasonable doubt.

    Couldn't disagree more with your assertions .... but this isn't the place to debate it.

    I imagine this thread will be closed shortly anyway.

    Why should it be closed? It's a case where a man, in front of witnesses, defended himself from (further) grave bodily injury; with a .22 caliber derringer, no less, under the SYG laws in Florida.

    There are many lessons to be learned here. He warned his attacker, he didn't fire until he was bested, and a .22 is probably not enough gun for SD.

    Sounds like a solid disparity of force case also, 5’7” vs. 6’1” and 235 pounds they did not give Landa’s weight but I’ll bet it was much less.
