5/28 10am Scoot, "Stand your ground"
Another “stand your ground” law is being tested – this time in Nevada –a 74-year-old man is on trial for murder after shooting an unarmed trespasser and seriously wounding another after he confronted them in a rundown duplex he owned. The prosecution argues the man was frustrated over past burglaries and acted out of revenge when he opened fire. The man’s lawyer says his client thought he saw a gun so he fired – but police found no weapon. Critics of new “stand your ground” laws say the laws encourage a vigilante mentality – do you agree? Scoot has an open honest conversation with the listeners.
