From the e-Activity, the castle doctrine has been modified in certain states because people have altered the way in which they commit crimes.These days, an individual can shoot you while driving and you would have no idea at what is coming your way. Now that we have the stand your ground law. You have the right to shoot back and there should be no charges pending against you (that is if you survive the shooting). Another example of the stand your ground law would be an individual walking into your home and assault you. Now you can use deadly force if in-fact you feel harm will come to you . Various states do not require a homeowner to warn the criminal they can just shoot to kill. It is a simply a choice made by the owner, but you must be mindful of your actions or one could face jail time if all the fact do not add up.The Stand your ground case in Florida ends with manslaughter. Michael Drejka was found guilty of manslaughter for killing Markeis McGlockton. An argument arise over a parking spot outside a convenience store in Clearwater, Fla., last summer. Mr. McGlockton was unarmed when Mr. Drejka shot him to death. Prosecutor charged Mr. Drejka with manslaughter because it was the correct thing to do. In the article, it states that Mr. Drejka did not testify. I think he should have had a chance to speak on his behalf because he could have self incriminated himself even more than what was told from the prosecuting attorney. I totally get the fact that one may be upset behind someone taking their parking spot but find another one. It’s not that serious until you pull out your weapon and shoot another individual and take him away from his family.In my opinion, the defense did not make their case because Mr. Drejka killed an innocent person who could not defend himself in a way that would make the playing field even. Mr. McGlockton, did not steal anything nor did he harm anyone. So, to pull out a gun just means that you are a coward and you deserve to be behind bars.Hassan, A.; Bogel-Burroughs, N. (2019).
