When you're an inconsiderate liar...

your baby daddy gets shot and killed.


https://www.tampabay.com/news/public...pace_170174041

"Jacobs parked in the handicap spot, she said, because the parking lot was busy (three open spaces when she pulled up) and they were just stopping for a minute."

CLEARWATER — Pinellas County Sheriff Bob Gualtieri announced Friday that his agency will not arrest a man deputies say shot and killed another man during an argument over a handicap parking space.

The incident falls under Florida’s self-defense law known as "stand your ground," the sheriff said during a news conference. The law gives immunity to those in fear of their lives who use force to defend themselves.

The shooting "is within the bookends of ‘stand your ground’ and within the bookends of force being justified," the sheriff said, later adding, "I’m not saying I agree with it, but I don’t make that call."

The agency will forward the case to the State Attorney’s Office for a final decision, Gualtieri said.

The confrontation between Michael Drejka, 47, and Markeis McGlockton, 28, took place in a convenience store parking lot Thursday afternoon. According to deputies, Drejka confronted McGlockton’s girlfriend, Britany Jacobs, about parking in a handicap space without a permit.

McGlockton went up to Drejka and "slammed him to the ground," the sheriff said. Drejka, seconds later while still on the ground, pulled out his handgun and shot McGlockton in the chest. The father of three was pronounced dead soon after.

yeah! Finally someone stood up to these people that do that. I see the same thing all the time. You may not think it's a big deal unless you are actually in need for the space. I would totally be fine with the handicap spots in the back of the lot as long as I have the room to get my door opened all the way and I can get my chair in and out of the car. I am not one of those people that have to have a front row parking spot, I just need the room to open the door all the way.

So, I don't agree with the shooting. if some aasshole came and pushed me down to the ground blindsided. And I stared back up and he wasn't holding up weapon, I don't think I could be in fear for my life.

Right?

I don't agree with the shooting either in the video. But it's nice seeing someone else standing up for those of us that can't. Pun intended lol.

Folks have been beaten to death. Answer when you're 47 and a 28 year old attacks you. Notice the attacker is still moving towards the shooter after he's on the ground.

I'm not saying he should be charged with Murder or even Manslaughter, but maybe have a sit down and say "look dude, you can't just kill people for pushing you down."

one thing I don't like is others acting like cops when they are not cops. He should have just reported him.

I remember one time i was in the vette and traffic was bad really bad so I decided to take the chance of getting a ticket and driving on the shoulder. Some asswipe sees me coming and blocks half the shoulder so I can't go by. Who the does did the think he was jonny law or what. I was so mad I forgot my gun that day.

I remember one time at Yankee's when a dude on a trike cursed at us for parking in a spot he wanted.

I do not see it that way. I do not see the younger man moving towards the guy on the ground and after the weapon is out he starts backing up.
I do not see the shooting as justified. The older man spends a lot of time chewing on the woman in the parked vehicle, he should have just said something and went on about his business if he was going to get involved at all.
The younger man sees this guy fussing at the woman and the woman getting out of the car. He is defending the woman. He should have just let her whip the nosey buttheads .

Yup, the young guy was backing up before he was shot.

Had he not have been shot, I'd have him charged with assault. You can go around touchin people just because they are "harassing a woman", especially, since she parked in a handicap zone.

Dude, I posted that "the attacker is still moving towards the shooter after he's on the ground." The attacker stops as the shooter pulls his weapon. Watch it on a large screen, not a smart phone.

The attacker could have defended her with words instead of getting physical.

I really don't think it was a good shoot by the way the laws are written. He should have just leg shot him.

But I guess you shouldn't assault someone these days because you can be shot for it.

I still do not see that the younger man was continuing aggression.
I think the older man should not have shot him as I see it. If he had continued forward and became a continued threat, then it could be argued that the older man was in fear of his life. He comes across to me as an arrogant hat minding other folks business...
it could also be wondered about if he would have said anything at all if the younger lady in the car had been white, much less continued with the lengthy chewing.
I also think that had the older man not shot him, the younger man should be charged with assault. There were several mis-steps here, first the older man was out of line in his continued behavior towards the younger woman.
Second the younger man should not have blind sided the older man and pushed him down, and then IMO, the older man should not have shot...
I am not saying that under the law there, the older man should be charged...it seems IMO that the sheriff is correct, it does meet the minimum standards of the law.

You don't see that the attacker is still moving forward after he pushes the shooter and when he hits the ground? It looks to you that the attacker stops all forward motion after the push?

In Florida you're not required to retreat if attacked. That's why there has been no arrest. Stand your ground also protects you from civil suites.
