Stand Your Ground: Woman pops the trunk on threatening man and kills him
By Barry Burch, Jr.
A woman in Houston, Texas has allegedly used the infamous “Stand Your Ground” law in the way it was intended to be used.
According to KHOU.com, there is surveillance video at a Gulf gas station that shows a female retrieving a rifle from the trunk of her vehicle and fatally shooting a man, who was apparently repeatedly threatening her.
The attacker, Louis Daniel, 58, with a knife and an umbrella in hand, lunged at the young woman and continued to do so as a crowd of both men and women began to form around them.
The woman told investigators from the Houston Police Department that Daniel made her fear for her life with his aggressive behavior and unwarranted sex advances.
She warned him she would shoot, she said.
Even going to her trunk and arming herself with a rifle
couldn’t make Daniel listen. He can be seen still lunging at the woman.
