Who said anything about running away? Step on the gas and DRIVE away. Diffusing a situation, especially one you started, by driving 10 yards is not harder than pulling out a gun and killing someone.
Shooting an unarmed person is not "self defense". That is not even an eye for an eye. If you get sucker punched from behind and don't want to fight back, call the cops and 9 times out of 10 the person who assulted you will get convicted and receive a prison sentence. There is no justification for shooting someone when there are other options, (like showing them you have a gun!).

This "innocent man" grabbed his handgun, got on his motorcycle and went looking for a speeding car to report. Another thing I hate about America, everyone wants to be a cop. One of the guys at that house was understandably annoyed by this overzealous prepubescent hall monitor and snapped, probably due to alcohol. In a perfect society the snitch fully deserved to get his a** kicked but that didn't happen because he had a gun. Being a trigger-happy piece of shit simply flashing the gun to end the fight wasn't enough, he went ahead and killed a man and now according to our warped society and emasculated simps like you HE is the victim.
The law is flawed and defends aggressors as much as victims. Who do you think starts trouble on the street? Do you think good citizens (grown adults) start bullying others out of the blue? No.. niggers, gang-bangers, douchebags on steroids and sick in the head armed Deer Hunter/Taxi Driver-esque creeps (like that Afghan-vet) start altercations. Well with this law they're free to kill you in "self defense" as soon as they 'feel threatened' by you taking a step in their direction and retorting one of their insults.
Who the f**k follows another car and then acts surprised when the other person is mad? Only in America can an armed civilian following an unarmed person be a victim, especially when they end up killing the man. I didn't mean to focus on this law in my original post but since you brought it up I put my 2 cents in.
