Default Florida man shoots door to door salesman

[QUOTE]A man selling frozen lobster tails and steaks door to door Wednesday afternoon in Cape Coral was fatally shot by a homeowner before the gunman was ordered to the ground by an off-duty Collier County corrections deputy, according to Cape police and witnesses.

....
He said Roop told the off-duty deputy, as well as the Cape officer who arrested him, the shooting was justified.

“He was telling the officer, ‘he stepped on my property, he trespassed, I’ll kill anybody that steps on my property,’ somewhere along them lines. It was just unbelievable,” Snyder said.

Cape Police Chief Jay Murphy said it’s too early to say whether Roop was defending himself under the parameters of Florida’s justifiable use of force statute.[/quote]

Gunman says he was in fear
Quote:
Explaining his actions to police after the shooting, Roop said he became “more than a little nervous” as Rainey walked down the driveway toward his truck and appeared to have something in his hand.

As Rainey drew within 4 feet, Roop grabbed his 9mm Glock from his pocket and fired once, striking Rainey in the shoulder, he told police. Rainey fell to the ground, screaming, ‘You shot me,’ in what Roop described as an “antagonistic” manner, according to the report.

Roop said he was still in fear and thought Rainey was reaching for something, so he shot Rainey once more in the back of the head, “for effect,” the report said. A company order brochure and cell phone were found near Rainey’s body.

Roop told detectives Rainey should have respected his three “No Trespassing” signs and explained he didn’t warn Rainey after pulling his weapon because, “I’m not going to give him the chance to do something to me; I was in fear.” He told police he believes he possesses 14 firearms.

RIP to the salesman. That is so fucked up. One second you're walking up to someone's door to see if they'll purchase an item from you and the next you're being transported to a coroner's office.

I agree with kentatm. This douche bag should definitely get at least life in prison. I'd prefer the death penalty. Why? He did it without provocation. You can't just shoot someone for walking up your driveway. If that were the case, I bet every little kid who does u-turns on people's driveways when riding their bicycles would be getting shot by idiot neighbors. (Extreme example, but fuck it. You got the gist of it)

So how will the gun lovers twist this so that it still seems ok for every day citizens to walk around or pack their house with guns?

Gene Snyder, a former volunteer firefighter who lives across a canal from the shooting scene, said he witnessed part of the incident.

“I went to bend over to help the guy on the ground, the victim, and out of the garage I heard something: ‘I’ll kill everybody or shoot everybody,’ Snyder said.

dude was out of control .. probably drunk ? .. poor guy(salesman)

How do you just shoot someone in the head, that you've already shot mind you, "for effect"?
