OK I know I said I was done, but just one more post to refute a couple of things you state as fact

No argument here.

I don't have anything to admit to, I am pretty sure I never said I knew why she got out of the car. I did say that I believe that a reasonable person in fear of a physical assault would not leave the safety of their car, and then I offered speculation and hypotheticals based on my belief, I never represented them a s facts.

Sorry but we know no such thing

Well we know it was loud enough, we have no clue if threats were made, or if threats were made, who made them.

We know that McGlockton took a step back, we don't know if it was in retreat. Without audio or testimony we have no idea if words were exchanged between McGlockton and Drejka after he was violently pushed to the ground. As was pointed out to me earlier in this thread, verbal threats can constitute assault under Florida law and therefore can justify self defense.
Ignorant or Stupid, I'm not sure which is worse. If someone were stupid, at least they'd have an excuse for all the dumb things they say.
Pass the Peace Pipe I need another hit
IANAL and neither are most people on this board, its just shows more with some than others.
