How Can It Be Self Defense?

An unmarked car creeps along, following you as you walk home. A large round man jumps out of the car screaming and coming at you. He is blinding you with a flashlight. They did not come up in a police car, they do not identify themselves, so you run.
As you run you tell your girlfriend that you are being chased, you are scared to death as you drop the phone. The shot rings out. You take your last breath.
The real police come. They wrap your dead body in a bag, load you into a truck and take you to the morgue.

The man who was chasing you was a rent-a-cop. A neighborhood watch member to be more exact. The real police let him go. They claim they have to because it was self defense. Welcome to the Florida Stand Your Ground Law.
