Florida’s “stand your flooring” or “shoot first” law gives protection from prison prosecution or civil liability to people who claim self-defence after a taking pictures or violent incident.

Police confronted complaint for the initial determination to not charge Mr Drejka in July.

“I Do Not make the law. I put into effect the law,” Pinellas County Sheriff Bob Gualtieri had said on the time.

“i am going to put into effect it the way in which it’s written. Others may have the talk about whether they like it or not.”

Mr Gualtieri had forwarded the case to the state attorney’s place of job on 1 Aug.

In a statement on Monday, Mr Gualtieri stated: “I support the State Attorney’s determination and will haven’t any additional comment because the case continues to work its approach throughout the felony justice gadget.”
