These must be a lot of people here that have never been blindly attacked. During that shock, can you make a split decision? You will only possibly pay with your life if you are wrong.

Just sayin, put yourself in his shoes and remember...
I can’t put myself in his shoes because I’m not a jerk who thinks he has the right to confront people about parking violations.

Now, if I’m minding my own business and an unprovoked attack like that occurs then the attacker is likely to face deadly force. I would hope that I have the opportunity to not pull the trigger should my attacker back away when I draw my self defense handgun.

A black man who drives a septic truck told Moffett he parked in the same handicapped-accessible spot three months before McGlockton's shooting, the documents show. The man said Drejka began yelling at him and said he would shoot him. The driver said he left, but as he pulled away Drejka shouted racial slurs. The man's boss told Moffett that Drejka later called, telling him "that he was lucky he didn't blow his employee's head off."

I'm curious. When I am driving my wife's car and park in a privileged parking spot, I don't hang a placard from the mirror as I am not required to do so. My question is; how many of y'all recognize this example license plate as authorization to park in privileged parking?

I recognize it.

This thread prompted me to do some research. It turned out to be quite entertaining to search on YouTube for "illegal handicap parking" and watch some of the videos.

Be aware, you'll hear some words that may hurt your sensitive ears. That's why I didn't post a link. I'm a little surprised there aren't more instances of things getting out of hand.
Hmmm...a volunteer handicapped parking monitor program in Harris County, TX.

I think you are taking this completely out of context. Asking someone to move out of a handicapped parking spot is not playing "police". I see it as being thoughtful of someone who may need that spot.
Just about every time I go out to stores I see people abusing handicapped parking. It's wrong, I don't like it and wish they wouldn't do it. But I'm not going to start a confrontation with anyone about it because (a) there are a lot of people who simply will come unglued if you dare to confront them about their behavior and (b) I'd be spending too much of my precious free time monitoring and trying to change other's abhorrent social behaviors.
What's next, start berating the obviously not handicapped people riding around Wal-Mart and other stores in the electric carts? To me, that's just as bad. Most of those people look like they could desperately use the exercise.

Normal people don't provoke an argument over a parking violation and threaten to use deadly force.
You don't like his behavior. Thats obvious. It's also obvious he doesn't like people parking illegally in handicap parking spaces. He had as much right to criticize her parking as you do to criticize his behavior.
No one has a right to threaten to use deadly force over a parking violation.
That's true and in the video I saw, the guy who did got shot.
My post was about the shooter’s previous actions not what is on the video.

At the convenience store Friday, customers filed in and out, buying cigarettes, lottery tickets and sodas, many of them familiar with details of the shooting. Mustafa Hashen, a clerk and witness, said both men were regulars.

It wasn’t the first time he saw Drejka in a fight with another customer. A couple of months back, Rick Kelly stopped by the store, parking his tanker truck in the same handicap spot.

The details to Thursday’s incident are similar: Drejka walking around the truck checking for decals, then confronting Kelly, 31, about why he parked there. The fight escalated, and Drejka threatened to shoot him, Kelly said.

"It’s a repeat. It happened to me the first time. The second time it’s happening, someone’s life got taken," Kelly said. "He provoked that."

Re: FL:Stand your ground law under fire for parking space dispute murder

IMHO, the victim did not attack the shooter from behind, he steps between his girlfriend and the antagonist shoving him away. Yes, he was wrong to get physical with the self appointed parking space police. When the shooter pulls his gun the victim is backing away when he is shot.
The shooter was wrong, both to confront and start an argument with a woman over a parking spot and to shoot her boyfriend when he takes exception to the shooter’s behavior.
Four wrongs leading to tragic consequences: parking in a handicapped space, believing you as a licensed handgun holder should be policing traffic laws, escalating the situation by initiating violent behavior and using deadly force when your civilian policing actions gets you knocked down.
Appears to me the shooter is one of those types who the appeal of licensed carry is the hope you’ll get to shoot someone. At minimum one who doesn’t recognize his placer as a licensed handgun carrier in a civil society.
I hope the prosecutor pursues an indictment against the shooter.
