Re: “Fleeing (alleged) thief shot

We are attempting to get a Castle Law in Arkansas. It is a good law based on Florida's SB 436. Arkansas Code Annotated 5-2-607 states that the only way one can use deadly force is if the KNOW they have no other option. Florida states that (1)A person is presumed to have held a reasonable fear of imminent peril of death or great bodily harm to himself or herself or another when using defensive force that is intended or likely to cause death or great bodily harm to another if:
(a)The person against whom the defensive force was used was in the process of unlawfully and forcefully entering, or had unlawfully and forcibly entered, a dwelling, residence, or occupied vehicle, or if that person had removed or was attempting to remove another against that person’s will from the dwelling, residence, or occupied vehicle; and
(b)The person who uses defensive force knew or had reason to believe that an unlawful and forcible entry or unlawful and forcible act was occurring or had occurred.
Try to convince a vigorous prosecutor and judge that you KNEW your life was endangered as opposed to a REASONABLE FEAR that your life was endangered.
If one wounds another and they sue you in court, there is a good chance they can ruin your life. If I wound someone, I will not then intentionally kill them to avoid them testifying against me. We cannot get this law passed alone. We need numbers! You can read Florida Castle by key word: CASTLE LAW. CONTACT YOUR LEGISLATORS NOW!
