"The law is reason, free from passion."
If you think that these two scenarios are essentially the same in re to self-defense and the use of deadly force, well there's your problem.
That's why you think everyone is saying something entirely different than what they are actually saying.
So, seriously, do you understand why the hypothetical scenario you presented is fundamentally different than Greer's situation?
What about you, Vancemack?
Can you tell why the two situations are fundamentally different?
Can you both tell how the situation of 86 yr old who acted to stop an armed robbery in progress is fundamentally different from Greer's situation?
If you guys are lumping these very different situations where an immediate threat is neutralized through deadly force with a situation where deadly force was used in the absence of an immediate threat, that explains why you are having trouble understanding the objections to Greer's behavior.
I may be wrong.
You said "You may want to look into elder abuse charges before you tell me what is and isn't a felony." Sorry but moving the goal posts because you have no clue what you are talking about is not going to work.

FL cops fired 377 rounds at unarmed men in deafening barrage that killed suspect, friend
Cuz...why hold cops to a higher standard then an 80 year old man that got jumped and beaten in his own home....
Frankly...no...I dont see much of a difference, except that the 80 year old actually has prevented future crimes from 2 assailants and a 3rd co-conspirator.
Fortunately for him, I am not the DA, lol. Because they may let him off for reasons I don't know about. As long as they follow the process and law, I am good with whatever decision they make.
