But could there be a scenario where he–wildly inappropriately–followed this guy, and brandished his gun, and then much to his surprise, the teenager tried to wrestle the gun away, and in the ensuing struggle, he got shot?
Does that seem the most likely explanation to me? No. Could I rule it out? Also no. And that’s reasonable doubt.
McArdle is saying that prosecutors are right not to bring charges against George Zimmerman, not because the “Stand Your Ground” law is written so bizarrely that it might make prosecution difficult, not because there is evidence that Zimmerman fired accidentally, but because she can imagine a scenario in which Zimmerman might have accidentally shot Martin.
