STAND YOUR GROUND: Another nut in Florida is trying to invoke the Stand Your Ground law after he shot another man in St. Petersburg. Randall White got upset at the long wait time for his order at a Little Caesars store at 3463 Fourth Street N, and another man in the l ine, Michael Jock, admonished him for his verbal outburst.
The police said a shoving match ensued and when Randall White raised his fist, Michael Jock pulled out a .38 Taurus Ultralight Special Revolver and fired one round, hitting him in the lower torso. The gun discharged again as the two men tussled, again hitting White in the same area, the Tampa Bay Times reports.
When the police arrived at the scene, Jock told officers the shooting was justified under “stand your ground,” police spokesman Mike Puetz told the newspaper. Police did not believe that such force was necessary and arrested Michael Jock on a charge of aggravated batter with a weapon and shooting within a building. He was released on $20,000 bail.
