I suppose you were held at gunpoint or knife at the time? So if so, you wouldn't have been able to pull, could understand that.
If you had killed one of them as they ran away though (shot them in the back so to speak) are you seriously telling me Florida wouldn't lock you up for that? Seems crazy.
Probably not, but I am glad I didn't kill him by accident. I wasn't aiming at his head or anything. the kid was 6 ft tall and I'm only 5'5. Everything happened so fast and you're emotions/anger get the best of you. Staring into the barrel of a loaded gun while the gunmen scream and yell at you makes you feel like you're a piece of worthless crap. But after I let off one round it calmed me down. But if my family was threatened in any way i think I would've unloaded the clip in rage.
