    He didnt say killing. He said murder, and it wasnt.

    Also, the title is wrong. It wasnt a stand your ground shooting.

        Two days ago a random dude tried to get in my truck while I was stopped at a traffic light. AM and still dark out. He pulled up on the passenger rear door handle. Locked. He went to the front passenger side and tried to look tough as he mumbled something. By this time my hand was on my weapon and I said “Get the f v c k out of here!”. He ran off into the darkness. I thought about it on my way to work. Had he gotten in, what would I have done? I was never “in fear”. Of course, I was in and he was locked out. I go out of my way to avoid trouble and conflict, but not everyone does. Some people shouldn’t carry.

            The castle doctrine applies to your vehicle as well.

              then why mention that you were never “in fear” as that isn’t a qualifier for the Castle Doctrine?

              When did I mention Castle Doctrine? And who was telling the story? Were you there? Were you the random dude?

                Take it easy there tiger... You said that because you were never “in fear” (of great bodily harm or death) that you weren’t sure what you could have done. I merely pointed out that the Castle Doctrine covers you in your ‘dwelling’, which includes your vehicle. The Castle Doctrine protects your liability by assuming that anyone who has unlawfully gained access to your dwelling can be automatically considered to be a threat of great bodily harm or death to you.

                You seemed, to me, to be highlighting the fact that you weren’t “in fear”, in this situation. I merely pointed out that it doesn’t matter if you were ever “in fear” in this instance.

                ? What the **** are you talking about? You seem to be writing your own narrative as often happens in cases like these. When did I say anything about great bodily harm or death?

                why did you choose to highlight the words “in fear” in your narrative?

                  Yes. My point was, I could have shot the guy as he entered my truck (if he did). I would have been justified. I could have killed him. There would have been no moral outrage though because he was as white as Elizabeth Warren...

                        Showed more restraint than I likely would have. I’ve always operated under the premise that if someone is attempting to enter my home (or vehicle) while I’m in it, they’ve got bad intentions and are in dire need of a long dirt nap.
