In Florida, the "Stand Your Ground Law" protects people from criminal charges when they are acting in self-defense. Michael Drejka, 47, fatally shot Markeis McGlockton, 28, in the chest, during an argument over a disabled parking spot earlier this week and because of the law, he will not be charged.
At a press conference on Friday, Pinellas County Sheriff Bob Gualtieri revealed that Drejka’s actions were “within the bookends of stand your ground and within the bookends of force being justified,” reported The Tampa Bay Times. “I’m not saying I agree with it, but I don’t make that call,” he said, before announcing that the State Attorney’s Office will make the final decision on the case.
McGlockton was a father of 3 and his wife and children were present.
