Based on accounts I've read, per my post - this guy initiated confrontations over people illegally parking in handicapped paces on a routine basis - for reasons known only to him he decided this was his injustice to save the world from. If I were to speculate - in prior instances when he confronted people he probably got a similar reaction so instead of saying "maybe I should just report these things and leave it to the cops" he decided "I'm going to get a gun and if someone comes at me I'll shoot them".
The Sheriff isn't pressing charges - I will be surprised if the DA doesn't go forward with charges. Just looking at the video it's hard for me to see how the guy could make a reasonable argument he was in fear for his life. And quite frankly I would say - that's why we have a justice system - let a judge or a jury decide whether his actions were within the confines of the law.
But this is where we are at - most of us wouldn't park in a handicapped spot - and if we were in a hurry or lazy and did and got called out we would sheepishly admit wrong and move are car (video indicated there were open spots when woman pulled into lot).
Most of us would just shake our heads and maybe give the person a dirty look - we wouldn't wag out finger at them.
Most of us when legitimately called out for being a jerk and parking in a handicapped spot wouldn't walk up to the person who called it out and lay a blindside hit on them.
And none us would pull out a gun and shoot a guy who shoved us to the ground who was five or six feet away from us and didn't present an immediate, serious threat.
Nobody can act reasonably anymore.
