Mike Drejka was a victim of arrogant thug violence and he survived! At the end of the day, that is what really matters. Get out and vote for Governor Ron DeSantis and protect your rights over criminals rights. Do we own the streets or do the thugs own the streets?

Numby someone yelling at you for breaking the law is not grounds for lethal force. That's not really a rational argument connected to this incident at all. BUT being a permit holder for decades and about protecting oneself...I was troubled by what I saw. The man had no right to push or touch this man. Granted but from what I did see He was pushed down...and at that point it looked to be over and the pusher walked away from him. Then he was shot....IF.. he had continued to assault him the shooting would have been fine with me or if he had pulled his gun as a warning to stay away.. But, I didn't see a continued assault. It would have been better, in this case, to have had the pusher arrested for simple assault using a car lic. number. IF he had continued to threaten I would say turn him into Swiss cheese..but he didn't continue the threat unless there was something I didn't witness.

Mr. Drejka, it has been proven, has on numerous occasions intentionally instigated confrontations with other "illegal parkers". As you point out he is 49 years old! You would think he would know better but then again I guess he has no life and nothing better to do than be a parking lot nazi! I have a feeling you would not be defending the woman in the car with such fervor if she shot him! Claiming self defense and fear for her life and the life of her child from the raving lunatic. But i digress.
