The motorcyclist will likely be convicted. That other guy that tried that defense in the shooting outside a convenience store lost, too. Oh, and the southernmost state is Hawaii.

Not lifting a finger? BS.

A cyclist comes next to him and they get into an argument and he just shoots the cyclist who is in critical condition. Unbelievable. He is probably going to claim the "stand your ground" rule against a skinny guy wearing lycra. Its open season on humans in Florida since they passed the idiotic stand your ground rule.

This is the infamous strip on the Rickenbacker causeway where several cyclists have been run down and killed in the last few years, usually by drunk/high kids racing back to mommy and daddy's multi-million dollar condos early in the morning, after partying on Miami beach partying all night.

Sorry that has NOTHING to do with the stand your ground law. It was just a criminal act!!!!

Well, judging by the quality of your writing, I'm sure you're an expert on the difference between premeditated and depraved mind murder. However, second degree murder is punishable by up to life in prison, so it hardly qualifies as giving him some sort of break. Proving premeditation (as opposed to just asserting it) is enormously difficult, "he pointed the gun and shot" is not enough.
