    'Stand Your Ground' defense denied for Trevor Dooley in 2010 death of David James in Valrico

    HILLSBOROUGH COUNTY, Fla. - "A Hillsborough County judge has ruled that a Valrico man cannot use Florida's Stand Your Ground defense in the shooting death of a man in September 2010.

    Circuit Judge Ashley Moody denied a motion to use the Stand Your Ground defense on Monday.

    Trevor Dooley, 69, said he was protecting himself when he was attacked and choked by David James

    Dooley is charged with manslaughter in James’ death.

    On September 26, 2010, James and his 8-year-old daughter Danielle were playing basketball on a neighborhood court in Valrico. A teenage skateboarder was skating on the other side of the court.

    Dooley, who lives across the street, saw the skateboarder and yelled at him that he was not allowed to skate on the court. James stuck up for the teenager, yelling to Dooley to show him the sign saying he was not allowed to skate.

    The possible mental distress that a lifetime CCW can cause a leftist, makes me giddy.

    I mispoke, 5 years with renewal for another 5 before retraining.

    Colorado has optional membership in a organized shooting activity in lieu of retraining.

    I think Senator Johnny Nugent, IN-R was one of the sponsors of the lifetime carry permit bill. In my opinion he is one of the more sensible politicians. Johnny's from Lawrenceburg, IN, a good guy and on the NRA board of directors. At a Friends of the NRA banquet about 6 or 7 years ago, he told how at meetings, they were seated alphabetically, with him being between Lt. Col. Oliver North and Ted Nugent. He jokingly said I watched my Ps and Qs, since I was positioned between a dangerous man and a wild man.
