in Ohio you'd go to jail.
castle law only protects you inside the home or inside your vehicle.
We have no duty to retreat, but if you go out there looking for it, then you're probably going to catch charges.
regardless none of this argument is even relevant, because police must be upheld to a higher standard that your average citizen. I hear all the time that they can do things because they have extensive training. Like drive down the road while typing on a laptop or on their cellphone and radios, all things that would get me a ticket.
If they have such extensive training that they can ignore the laws that apply to you and I, then why can we not hold them to a higher standard when it comes to shooting people?
