And some attorneys don’t like “Stand Your Ground” laws. DA won’t charge tow truck driver who shot, paralyzed rival at Homewood crash scene.
Two tow truck drivers get into an argument over who will do the tow after a crash. One pulls out a baseball bat, and the other shoots him. The attorney?
“Not once did he ever swing [the bat],” Mr. White said. [That’s the attorney for the guy who got shot] But, he added, given the way the state’s stand-your-ground law is written, prosecutors would have had “a difficult burden to overcome” because Mr. Stotlemeyer was holding the baseball bat.
Damn that stand your ground law. If not for that, they could prosecute someone for defending himself against an attack with a baseball bat.
Self-defense is a Human-right, and at least for the time being, it is your legal right in Pennsylvania.
