I'm a huge fan of unassing the area, rather than getting in a gunfight. Or avoiding the area to begin with.
I agree-- leaving the scene is the best "defense" of all.

But if you're in your own home? Leaving may not be a reasonable option.

I'm kind of torn about this one-- as I do think each life is unique, and worthy of trying to preserve.

But I also think an individual should have the right to stop someone else from doing violence to them.

I agree 100%. The execution of justice on that case was simply a joke.

This is factually incorrect.
The two had been fighting. He had her in the bathroom, blocking her exit. She managed to push past him into the garage, from which there was no other exit. She shot a warning shot into the air.
She did NOT leave and return days later. Her car was in the garage from which there was no other exit. He refused to leave after she showed him that she had a gun and she made a warning shot into the air.
Now, she was offered a plea deal of 3 years if she plead guilty of aggravated assault, but she believed she did nothing wrong. When she was then convicted, that meant a minimum 20 year sentence.
One of the *big* problems in both this case and the Martin-Zimmerman case is that the injustices were directly from the law being applied as it was designed. In the Zimmerman case, it is too lenient when someone is killed and in the other case, it is too harsh when nobody is killed. Contradictions like this make it clear that the law is NOT being applied fairly and is draconian in many ways.
There are discussions about whether Trayvon Martin smoked pot. Who cares? Seriously, what relevance is there to the matter at hand? if it was a white kid who was having trouble in school and had smoked pot and a black man that shot him, do you really think the results would be the same? I don't.
I agree with your points--- the law in this case, is in conflict with itself.

Because of that conflict? The Justice Department **must** choose which law to use, in any given situation.

Statistically, it appears that SYG is more likely to apply if you are **not** brown-skinned ...

If the SYG was **not** his escape clause? Then there was a gross violation of justice-- he murdered an unarmed kid in cold blood.
Premeditated murder, as he had to chase him down to do it.
Sure if you omit he was not breaking the law , when JR. slipped up from behind him.

Sorry you lost the case.

What will it take you to settle into the idea justice was served?

Whether right or wrong.....It's over.

As a reasonable and (I think) moral person, I will make every reasonable effort not to kill anyone. Even if I'm not legally obliged to.

That said, absent alternatives, I'll put two in his head without a second thought.

No you are relying on biased apologetic sources as usual.

There is no scripture saying Jesus was born in a house? You really never have read the gospels have you?

Luke says they lived in Nazareth and were traveling to Bethlehem and had to stay in the manger where Mary gave birth. The earlier version of the myth in Matthew says he was born in his parent's Bethlehem house and remained there for two years.

So which is it? Perhaps they lived in the manger for two years? Lol!

The VERY FIRST rule was "don't even touch the gun unless you're in enough danger to kill".
Brandishing, shooting to wound, and warning shots were right OUT.
If you need it enough to pull it, you need it enough to put two in his head - otherwise, run away screaming.
That's one way. Want to see another?

I'm pretty sure I wasn't stoned back then - although beer was involved now and then.

I know a guy that has a nine shot .22 revolver.

He keeps one chamber empty.

I'm stoned now. I don't drink alcohol.
