How much time is the minimum to premeditate pulling a trigger?
No, he did not wake up planning to kill the dude, no he did not think about it last year while on vacation, and no he did not even think about it when he was chasing the guy.....But....
What if he has a bug up his ass, and decided that if he had any provocation AT ALL, he was going to draw and fire, and claim fear for his life. What if the guy never even had a gun and the cop killed him and claimed he thought he saw one, all because he had already made up his mind that if this guy did not come out on hands and knees, he was going to pay?
How much time is premeditated?
<quoted text>That does not pass the legal test of premeditation. He did not wake up that morning with a plan to kill that dude. He had no plans in place to tske him to tha guy's door. That is not premeditated.
