I had to look this up. Many of the other forum members may not be familiar with this acronym.

EDP = Emotionally Disturbed Person. This has been used by NYPD, NY EMS, and apparently others, since the above poster used it.

SIA
Thank you.

EDPs. Rarely a deadly threat but possibly a threat of some violence or harassment.
That is exactly why I carry mace AND a gun. Some might disagree but I'd rather just mace some EDP and walk away than have only a deadly weapon to defend myself and answer to a grand jury full of libtards.
(flame suit on)
Right there with ya, bro!

And, yes, I'm an old EMT, Corrections Officer, and Secured-Unit Care Provider. ;-)
Same here. The last thing I need is the legal/financial stress of using a deadly weapon. If it is unavoidable so be it but I sure as heck am not looking for a reason to use it. Nor am I looking to cause someone else to give me a reason to use it. I mind my own darned business and let the paid police handle parking issues and such.

Drejka gave credible evidence of being an EDP and potential threat to the woman. Life hurts. It hurts more when you're stupid.

LOL... I had no idea what EDP was. But did not bother to look it up. :mrgreen: Thank you.

He told investigators he has a "pet peeve" about illegal parking in handicapped spots and often walks around such cars looking for handicapped stickers and placards, sometimes taking photographs. He said he often sees people illegally parked in the handicapped spot at that convenience store, but the owner doesn't do anything about it.

Drejka said he saw McGlockton's car in the handicapped spot that day, so he went to its back and front, looking for stickers, which store security video shows. He said the car's windows were tinted, so he didn't know anyone was inside.

Jacobs, who was sitting with the couple's two younger children, partially put down her window and asked what he was doing. He said he told her it was "not very polite" to park in the spot and "she took that as an affront." He said that sparked an argument that got heated, with Jacobs saying "Do I have to get my man?"

Jacobs testified that Drejka had started pointing and yelling at her. She said she cracked the window to hear what he was saying and a screaming match ensued.

There is a lesson in that for all LTC's. LTC does not make you a cop, so mind your own business and don't run around looking for something to get involved in..

Parking space enforcer sentenced to 20 years.

He is 48 probably now.

Interesting in the initial story the Sheriff said it was "stand your ground". Probably he had not seen the video.
That sure seems like a heavy sentence for using self defense. I think I understand how it works now. If some thug knocks you to the ground, self defense is not allowed if he is black. OK... guess I would be going to jail because black, white green or brown, someone knocks me to the ground and then moves at me like they are gonna keep up the attack, they might just get shot. :tiphat:

Two people who made the wrong choice. One is dead and the other is going to jail. this self appointed defender of parking spaces should have known you don't put yourself in a confrontational situation when carrying a gun, unless it is absolutely necessary. This wasn't
You make a very valid point. :iagree:

ANALYSIS: Michael Drejka Guilty of Manslaughter
Attorney Andrew Branca:
OK, folks, here’s a somewhat more in-depth commentary on Drejka’s conviction last night:

Last night “handicap parking spot shooter” Michael Drejka was found guilty of manslaughter, as charged, for the shooting death of Markeis McGlockton. The verdict was returned quickly last night, after the jury had deliberated only a few hours.

(Paywalled after three days.)
This shows the risk one faces with a jury. Right or wrong, one never knows what emotions will play out and find an innocent person guilty of a crime. IMHO

Self defense IMHO. The crime is that they are taking the victim to court.

I'll bet that both of these old goats were displaced yankees who were mad that they were surrounded by those they tried to flee from and compounded by the fact that Florida is hot, humid and not the promised land they were expecting.
Old goats? One was late twenties and the other was around 46. Maybe you are thinking of some other situation?
Yep, wasn't there another earlier thread about two uh, er senior guys dueling it out about a Handicap parking space? I dunno', I'm gittin' kinda Senior my own self? :confused5
Yep. There sure was. I think that one was two old crankers. Seems the handicap parking thing is getting downright hazardous...LOL.

He may have been yelling and cussing but he certainly was not in her face. She actually is existing the vehicle toward the man before her boyfriend arrives.
My bet is that she was about to help beat the guy and then saw the gun and ran. If that fellow had not fired we would have been watching his beat down on another of those infamous you tube videos. Those two were definitely about to pound him. He should not have been playing parking cop but that does not give a thug and his girlfriend the right to pound him down.

It's going to trial now:

Funny how the media works. They show a picture of the guy who was shot all smiley faced and looking like a boy scout. Then they show a picture of the shooter looking threatening and ominous.

It is pretty obvious what the anti gun anti self defense media is after.
