Florida man logic fail: difficult to claim SYG in case of grenade attack...
Facts of the case: Store owner shoots customer who is pulling away in his car, because owner thought customer had thrown a grenade. Owner claims he was standing his ground.
Logic: If you fear that someone has thrown a grenade at you, why would you continue "standing your ground"? Wouldn't you immediately dive for cover? The video here shows the owner exiting his store and immediately opening fire on the car as it pulls away.
a customer with a complaint
Guy was easy to find as he was lost getting out of the parking lot.
For some as yet unknown reason guy throws a bottle of castor oil out of the car and the owner shoots him in the back on the way out.
I can't help thinking the owner was just waiting for an excuse to shoot someone. I know a few people like that. One of them had a store in a crime-ridden neighborhood and had a shotgun handy under the counter.
There's a backstory here-- the complainer was complaining about a friend of his being mugged in the parking lot. Has the store, the neighborhood, or any of those involved been involved in such problems before?
I know some courts have expanded SYG to ridiculous extremes, but it's not intended to include shooting in the back someone fleeing. Is it?
