Quoted in Orlando Sentinel

I was quoted in today's Orlando Sentinel regarding justifiable use of deadly force. The issue was whether a person can shoot someone who has broken into their home or business. I explained that, pursuant to Florida Statutes, an individual is justified in using deadly force in their home if they reasonably believe that they are about to be injured or killed by the burglar. Moreover, even if the police and prosecutors felt that you didn't have the right to kill the intruder, you will likey face a very sympathetic jury, as any homeowner will understand your circumstances and likely find you not guilty.
