Ground stand ends in death

Reader Input
-A +A
You?re wearing a hoodie at night, walking home while munching Skittles, when you suddenly realize you?re being followed and perhaps about to be set upon. So you decide to ?stand your ground? only to discover the unidentified follower has a weapon. (Change of scene.) You see someone suspicious walking through your neighborhood wearing a hoodie so you call a dispatcher who says ?we don?t need you to be doing that.? But you disobey and decide to follow anyway knowing you have a weapon and probably assume ?the hoodie? has one also but only you have ?stand your ground? rights. Of course in Florida you both have Stand Your Ground rights with severe life-altering results for many. ?No intelligent life forms here, Scotty. Beam me up.? Kent Campbell, Auburn
