    Default Florida jogger won't be charged for shooting teen dead

    Fla. jogger won't be charged for shooting teen - Yahoo! News

    TAMPA, Fla. A pistol-packing jogger in Florida won't be charged for shooting and killing a teenager who attacked him during a midnight run.

    Prosecutors said Tuesday they are convinced Thomas Baker acted in self defense when he fired eight shots at 18-year-old Carlos Mustelier near Tampa in November .

    Prosecutors say Florida's "stand-your-ground" law was a factor in their decision. The law, passed in 2005, gives people the right to use deadly force as long as they "reasonably believe" it is necessary to stop another person from hurting them.

    Baker told police he reached for his gun when the teen punched him in the face. Baker has a concealed weapons permit.

    The teen was hit four times in the chest, back and buttocks. He died at the scene.

    EIGHT shots?

    I don't see why he would be charged.

    One shot to the face would have sufficed.

    Now I don't know that much about Tampa but is it really that dangerous that joggers need to carry a gun?
    Life will break you. Nobody can protect you from that, and living alone won't either, for solitude will also break you with its yearning. You have to love. You have to feel. Horrible isn't it? It makes you so vulnerable.

    exactly. although why, in the sweet name of jesus, are people out jogging at MIDNIGHT in what seems to be a dangerous area? I mean, if you have to carry a gun jogging ... maybe think about getting a treadmill.
