Aug 24 - Florida car-park k*lling: Gunman guilty as 'stand your ground' defence fails

A white man who shot and k*lled an unarmed black man over a parking dispute in the US state of Florida has been found guilty of manslaughter.

Michael Drejka, 49, shot Markeis McGlockton after a f*ght broke out over a disabled parking space last year.

Drejka had cited the state's "stand your ground" law, which has provided a self-defence case for those threatened by deadly force or imminent danger.

Drejka faces up to 30 years in prison and will be sentenced in October.

"It's been well over a year since we've been dealing with this matter and I can safely say my family can rest now," McGlockton's father, Michael McGlockton, told reporters.

Drejka's lawyer, John Trevena, said his client would probably appeal against the verdict, which he called "a mystery".

The fatal shooting prompted protests and vigils around the state.

It also fuelled political debates around several polarising issues, including gun rights, race and self-defence.

Why did the shooting take place?

The dispute began after Drejka confronted McGlockton's girlfriend, Brittany Jacobs, because she had parked in a disabled parking space with two of her children.

As their argument escalated, McGlockton, 28, rushed from a nearby shop and pushed Drejka to the ground.

Drejka - who had a concealed weapons licence - then pulled out a gun and shot McGlockton.

CCTV footage shows McGlockton rushing back inside the shop while clutching his chest. He was taken to hospital in the city of Clearwater and pronounced dead.

Drejka claimed to have acted in self-defence, but police faced criticism for the initial decision not to charge him.

"If he was going to hit me that hard to begin with, a blind side from the get-go, what else should I expect?" he later said in a police interview.

Drejka also said that his "pet peeve" was illegal parking in disabled spaces, and he admitted to police that he had frequently taken photos of offending cars.

Court documents revealed he had been accused as an aggressor in four other road incidents between 2012 and 2018. In three of them, prosecutors alleged that he threatened people with a gun.

What happened in court?

A six-member jury took about six hours to reach the verdict late on Friday.

Drejka's lawyers argued McGlockton caused his own death by making Drejka fear for his life.

"The threat was real," Mr Trevena told the court. "He had the right to stand his ground and no duty to retreat".

But prosecutors said CCTV footage showed that McGlockton stepped away after the weapon was pointed at him.

Assistant State Attorney Scott Rosenwasser said it was a "cut and dry" murder by a self-proclaimed "parking lot vigilante".

"You know what Markeis McGlockton is guilty of?" Mr Rosenwasser asked the court. "He is guilty of loving and trying to protect his family and he died because of it."

During the proceedings, jurors had asked for more clarity over the state's self-defence law. Judge Joseph Bulone told them that all he could do was reread it to them.

I honestly believe that "Stand your ground" law is a racist law that gives an unfair advantage to white people. Imagine a non white person trying to use this as defense especially if the victim were white. White law enforcement, white judge, white prosecutor, white jurors would all be laughing inside. Sounds absurd because it is, they would never let that happen. Good this c*cksucker is facing consequences though.

Drejka is fu*king coward. Glad he is going to jail. Hindsight beng 20/20 i wish Markeis McGlockton would have knocked Drejka the fu*k out. When the police show up say that man had a gun and I thought my life was in danger so i knocked him out to protect my woman and kids.

Been telling you goofies that castle sh*t and the stand your ground don’t always work. Can’t just shoot people because you “feared for your life” sh*t needa match up. Can’t escalate sh*t from a push/punch to hot ones.

This pu**y getting exactly what he deserves.

I live in Florida, have a gun license, and carry everywhere allowed.... and I stand by and agree with this post 100%

I'm not pulling on someone unless my life or my family is truly threatened. If an unarmed man puts hands on me then I'm putting hands back on him like my daddy taught me too.

People are straight up punks these days. So quick to pull a gun and end a life in a situation that can easily be handled with hands or even words. pu**y sh*t. Man up, gay f*g**ts.

Yeah I think having other incidents where he pulled out his gun didnít help his case. Plus he said heís was the parking lot enforcer, what a fu*king weirdo. Like he really had a problem with people parking in handicap spaces.
n*gga was in the parking lot like

I remember the thread on thec*li about this and that racist Mexican who sells drugs and is a strip club doorman said he thinks all handicap parkers should be shot and he didn't get banned for that dumb racist sh*t, the man was just executed for no reason and he comes in celebrating and no one banned him or suspended his account plus no one has ever died from not being able to park in a handicap space but those drugs the racist Mexican sold has caused people to lose jobs, divorces, custody of kids and absolutely caused deaths. I am glad this guy was convicted but we have to
wait for sentencing before any celebrations just in case they pull a fast one and give him the minimum. His family deserves justice for their murdered loved one who was a hero because this lunatic could have shot into the car at one of them.
