Jury selection begins in Florida parking lot shooting case

Jury selection begins in Florida parking lot shooting case

A video shows how Michael Drejka fatally shot Markeis McGlockton 13 months ago in a fight that began over a handicapped parking space. Prosecutors, defense attorneys and the judge are picking six jurors whose task could be complicated by Florida’s controversial ’stand your ground law’ and by race: Drejka is white and McGlockton was black.

Easy win for the survivor of the attack. This is why SYG exists. Assaulting old people because they yell at you is not acceptable and when they shoot you after you knock them down and keep going at them, its your fault that you are dead.

The npr headline is pretty disgusting. What does race have to do with any of this?
