Where I laid out all the elements, and applied the facts of the case (the ones not in dispute) to the law to show how he was indeed covered by the law.

Still need to know more about this case, but it sounds like this should not be covered by stand your ground, nor common law self-defense. But I can't say for sure.



That's not what you were saying. Also, if you follow an unarmed citizen while carrying a gun, without cause, you are not automatically covered by the law just because you were getting your ass kicked. Nice try though.
