The Fine Line Between Self-Defense and Manslaughter [Open Salon]

May 2, 2012 in Elsewhere on the Web by apleau

This week, I posted an article for Open Salon discussing the very gray areas of Arizona’s “Stand Your Ground” law in respect to a fairly recent shooting in Scottsdale.  It doesn’t fit my editorial vision for The Menacing Kitten, so instead of cross-posting it here, I’d like to direct you to the article on Salon (http://open.salon.com/blog/menacingkitten/2012/04/30/the_fine_line_between_self-defense_and_manslaughter).  Check it out, and please rate it if you like it. As I did my research for this article, I found my opinion changed with each piece of information I collected and reviewed. Let me know what you think either in the comments below, or in the comments on Open Salon.
