Teen Uses 'Stand Your Ground' After Shooting Man Holding a Stick (VIDEO)

Black Kid "stands his ground" with illegal gun and kills black man with stick and is found not guilty (VIDEO)

"No homicide charges will be filed against a 17-year-old teen who fatally shot a community choir director in the face with an illegal gun, prosecutors said Tuesday.

The shooting is considered justified under Florida's stand-your-ground law because the 40-year-old victim, Julius Jerome Jacobs, was carrying a large stick."*

17-year old Tyrone Pierson shot 40-year-old Julius Jerome Jacobs dead in Florida, and won't face homicide charges after evoking 'Stand Your Ground.'

Pierson had an illegal gun, while Jacobs was holding a large stick. Cenk Uygur, Ana Kasparian, Ben Mankiewicz, and John Iadarola discuss.
