    Stand Your Ground

    Not sure if this is the best forum for this. My wife had this on Amazon Prime when I got home and I only saw the last part, but great message, and a horrible, offensive prosecuting attorney who just wanted a gun owner convicted for defending his property and the unfortunate accidental shooting of a combative suspect. Too many prosecuters like this.

    I often appreciate what you have to say but every once in a while your posts are lacking in specificity / context. What movie/documentary was it?

    It is available on Amazon Prime, as RedSafety noted.

    Movies are at best adaptations of real life. I pay no attention to them. I observe and react to reality.

    I think stories like that are good reminders to people like us who keep and bear arms for defense. There are overzealous prosecutors out there and overzealous plaintiffs and plaintiffs lawyers. If I ever have to shoot someone, I will not hesitate, but I will also make sure I am 100% in the right AND I don't do anything to make it even appear otherwise. Even then, I want to have a legal plan to back me up.

    You cvan do nothing wrong, and still face heavy charges by corrupt and overzealous detectives/police and prosecutors. While Stand Your Ground is only a movie, it does pretty much reflect what you could face in the hands of corrupt anti-gun freaks.

    Where did the movie take place? Many places in the US self defense shootings are ho hum. The only ones we hear about are the liberal prosecutors in liberal areas. There have been a few in Texas and Arizona. I live in one of the most conservative area's of the US. Not much of a concern around here.

    One review:
    An American TV film drama; Based on a true story about a man accused of murder when he tries to stop three men stealing copper from his business premises. His church going mother finds her faith put to the test as she feels helpless to help her son. He languishes in prison while the prosecution seeks a life sentence. Released as "Cry for Justice" in the UK, it has two main themes: the right to defend your home and business, and having faith in the truth. The acting is below par and many conversations in scenes away from the courtroom had a stilted manner. Some scenes were poorly edited, tumbling into each other without much care and attention for the narrative. Cameron Arnett as the lawyer gives a creditable performance, drawing in the audience to the case and builds up the tension to an impressive courtroom climax but his weeping to the jury felt unnatural.

    Ok, I see it IS based on a true story. The home used was the home of the real main character and the prison chaplain was the real prison chaplain.
