The 2019 Florida Statutes
Title XLVI
CRIMES
Chapter 776
JUSTIFIABLE USE OF FORCE
View Entire Chapter
776.012Use or threatened use of force in defense of person."
(1)A person is justified in using or threatening to use force, except deadly force, against another when and to the extent that the person reasonably believes that such conduct is necessary to defend himself or herself or another against the other's imminent use of unlawful force. A person who uses or threatens to use force in accordance with this subsection does not have a duty to retreat before using or threatening to use such force.
(2)A person is justified in using or threatening to use deadly force if he or she reasonably believes that using or threatening to use such force is necessary to prevent imminent death or great bodily harm to himself or herself or another or to prevent the imminent commission of a forcible felony. A person who uses or threatens to use deadly force in accordance with this subsection does not have a duty to retreat and has the right to stand his or her ground if the person using or threatening to use the deadly force is not engaged in a criminal activity and is in a place where he or she has a right to be.

--define "great bodily harm". had this man not already received "great bodily harm"?
i see in the video the "attacker" definitely keep coming after the assualt; when he sees the gun then he backs up.
i see the shooter point the weapon at two people... how many people are involved here, was the shooter alone?
would an average person having just been blind-sided and viciously knocked to the ground... would that victim's mind be expected to parse his/her continuing danger?

indeed, when exactly he pulled the trigger may be problematic. from what i see and i oppose syg, ... this man could not have retreated, he as pushed to the ground.

i could not convict this man of manslaughter without knowing the punishment. he was violently attacked and yes the attacker stepped TOWARD him before he stepped away.
