My second cousin was a cop. He walked into a store. A mad customer threw a can at store owner it missed and hit my cousin. He pulled his gun and shot the guy who threw the can. My second cousin cop went to prison for murder.<quoted text>
This is an interesting SYG case from Alabama -- the appellant court reversed a murder conviction. The victim was unarmed, for some bizarre reason the defendant tossed out "a stick" which then resulted in him getting hit with the stick and as he feared for his life, that gave him the legal right to Stand His Ground and shoot him. It's not clear if either of the two were lawfully at the location where the incident took place, but the appellant court didn't care.
Was that right or wrong??
