But he invoked Stand Your Ground, He must go free, Right?

Like so many road rage incidents, the one between two male drivers in Boca Raton on the afternoon of Sept. 7, 2013 involved one guy cutting off the other followed by horn honking and a raised middle finger.But this one didn’t just end with an obscene gesture and hot-tempered motorists going their separate ways.Instead, it was just the start of a confrontation involving an off-duty federal agent and gunfire outside the Town Center mall — and later Stand Your Ground self-defense claims — that a Palm Beach County jury likely will have to sort out.Deputy U.S. Marshal Angel Echevarria, 42, is charged with three counts of aggravated assault with a firearm in the case involving three alleged victims: A Pompano Beach man, his then 2-year-old son, and the man’s brother.

The Gun Control Pundits keep telling us about the magic powers of Stand Your Ground and how once you chant three times, the world becomes a rainbow of emotions and you go free..

Apparently that is not the way it works…even in Florida…and even for a Federal Marshall.

But don’t let the facts get in the way of The Narrative.

  1. You forgot about how the police are the only ones trained enough, emotionally stable enough and professional enough to handle firearms. Us lowly peons would go all explodey on the rest of the populace when someone cuts US off in traffic.

  2. He should have let it go. If I pointed my gun every time some idiot cut me off or did some other stupid thing, it would never be holstered.

    Going hunting for the guy was a bad move, that could be considered intent to do harm. Especially since witnesses disagree with the Marshals story. I think this guy will be toast.
