    Very easy case, not sure if there was any NEW stuff during the trial but everything that cam out before hand pointed to a bad shoot, negligence and types of charges definitely being filed and him being found guilty.

    There was nothing support self defense in the case.
    I recognize that far more people saw the abuse of the SYG laws and that blatant disregard this guy exhibited for this little girl's life in what he chose to do. I think the what this story illustrates best is the risks that are posed when the laws are poorly written and/or misunderstood. That risk being people feeling empowered to make life and death decisions on a whim.

    hmmmm. i dont disagree on premise at all. I in fact dispise the poorly written laws and this one would be more castle doctrine, not SYG even though many talked about SYG during this case. Regardless though i dont think thats what THIS story does because i just think the guy was an idiot I dont think he was confused. But im sure there are cases out there where people were confused.
