    "Prosecutors charged Michael Drejka, the man accused of killing Markeis McGlockton in a shooting that has reignited a debate around Florida's "stand your ground law," with manslaughter Monday.

    According to the Pinellas County Sheriff's Office, Drejka was taken into custody Monday morning. He is being booked into the Pinellas County Jail, where he will be held in lieu of $100,000 bail....

    State Attorney Bernie McCabe's decision to charge Drejka signals that prosecutors believe they can show by "clear and convincing" evidence that a stand your ground defense is not applicable in Drejka's case.

    State legislators revised the law last year to put the onus on prosecutors to disprove a stand your ground claim instead of on defense attorneys to prove one."

    And still, he was charged with manslaughter....no premeditation, no ill will or hatred or some type of evil intent, which would have indicated state-of-mind. Prosecutors know they have an uphill battle, a likely stand-your-ground defense to fight. Other recent cases have not gone the prosecutor's way now that the law has changed.
