...During the press conference Tuesday, July 24 attorney Michele Rayner said allowing Michael Drejka, 47, to use the Stand Your Ground defense in the shooting death of Markeis McGlockton Sr., 28, is tantamount to "sanctioning murder."

:facepalm: Let's hope so.

...“If he was in fear of bodily harm or death the video doesn’t show it,” Rickman says. Based on the footage, Rickman says he believes prosecutors have enough evidence for a second-degree murder conviction.
