I find it to be odd that I would get a mean emoticon for simply asking a question. This just further proves that we now live in a world where no one wants to have substantive conversations. We are doomed as a country.

The two were not just an acquaintance.they knew each other for a little time but David thorstead didnt know much about the guy.he worked with david building a car wash and then came to his house months later looking for a place to stay offering work,but during the time stole $1000 worth of christmas gifts from davids friend and multiple things from davids house.then david gave him a ride back to his car and the guy kept making him go to many places to drop him off and finally would not leave his car and david was scared for his life,wife and 5 daughters so he pulled the gun for a scare tactic the man took the gun and started a fight and the gun went off and steve was shot,then out of good favor david drove him to the hospital,thats when the cops arrested david,steve is the one who should be arrested

Thanks for the info. Thanks for telling everyone about his family. Thanks for spelling the last name wrong. It is spelled correctly several times in the article. The law is simple, if someone feels they need to pull a weapon they pull it. If it passes the "reasonableness test" he is covered. That is, if a reasonable person puts himself in the same situation and he feels he would have pulled the weapon, he is covered and it should be ruled "self defence." If David felt threatened the shooting was justified.
huck

Where in the article does it state he 'felt threatened'?

Self defense of what?
