    Thats crazy, I seen that.... Florida = Stand your ground or ''No duty to retreat''. It's worded about a thousand different ways, and on the books as the ''Castle Doctrine'' but pretty much means gun owners have more room to defend themselves and their properties if an intruder acts in a threatening manner. Used to be, you had to have exhausted all opportunities to flee....not anymore.. doesn't mean you can cap a trespasser without provocation, but you get the point...Hate to see some jackass get murked over a jetski, but hell.. whatever wakes people up to the fact you shouldn't be touching peoples chit...

    Here's a paragraph I found on the net regarding what I am talking about...

    The Florida law, which served as a model, authorizes lethal force against intruders entering homes or vehicles on grounds that the gun user feared a "forcible felony."

    The law states that an individual in self-defense "has no duty to retreat and has the right to stand his or her ground and meet force with force, including deadly force."

    Florida also forbids the arrest, detention or prosecution of the shooters covered by the law, and it prohibits civil suits against them.

    Florida Gov. Jeb Bush attributed the 2005 decline in the state's crime rate to the lowest level since 1971 partly to legally arming homeowners, toughening sentences and increasing funds for law enforcement.

    He got what he had coming to him. I will give the homeowner props on this. I wish there were more states like florida and texas with there laws that protect people from a potentially harmful intruder. Here in kentucky we have the castle law here too, but we can only use deadly force if we feel threatened and can stop a intruder from harming others. We cant use deadly force outside of the house unless they show a direct threat to the homeowner.

    "During the confrontation, the unidentified juvenile shot Reynaldo Muñoz, 20, in the head, and he died at the scene, police said. Muñoz’s girlfriend has been charged with felony murder for her participation in a crime that caused the death of another."

    Nice!
    Also, if he was a deaf mute, does she know sign language too?
