Jury Rules in Florida 'Stand Your Ground' Case

Newser reports a high-profile "stand your ground" case ended Friday in Florida.

A Florida jury took 6 1/2 hours to convict Michael Drejka of manslaughter.

Drejka had fatally shot Markeis McGlockton in a 2018 dispute over a handicapped parking space.

While McGlockton was unarmed and black, Drejka is white and wasn't initially charged at all.

Drejka could get thirty years' imprisonment for his crime.

Epic Fail: Florida Man Tries DIY Grand Theft Auto

A one Casey William Kelley purchased a Porsche 911 Turbo from a dealership in Destin, Florida, on Monday for nearly $140,000. But according to Newser, 'purchased' isn't quite the correct term to describe the transaction. That's because the cashier's check for $139,203.05 bounced. The car was reported stolen. Kelley was arrested Wednesday, and he told authorities that the check hadn't actually come from a bank, but was simply printed off of his home computer.
