This is a sad event. A 36 year old was gunned down by a well off doctor outside his home in Taylor Lake Village. This happened in May of 2013. The case has not been referred to a grand jury. According to KHOU:
A well-to-do doctor claims it was self-defense when he shot and killed 36-year-old Brandon Smith. Police said Smith crashed a crawfish boil at the doctor's house, got kicked out and went back later. Smith's dad says his son was walking his dog the second time. He said Smith had a brain injury and was gunned down in the street and not on anyone's property.
What get sme is that the grieving father is a member of the Republican Party, the very party that created and supports the Stand Your Ground law. This is the party that believes in shoot first ask questions later. They are in love with guns and laws that protect the shooter. The doctor will probably use the Stand Your Ground law as defense of this defenseless unnecessary violence. And given what has recently happened in Florida, he has a good chance of getting off.
Hopefully this senseless shooting will end up in the grand jury.
