Another misguided case

This one is interesting

This not only speaks to firing warning shots but also Stand your ground with a little Castle doctrine thrown in. The woman's lawyer at the end of the article confuses SYG with castle doctrine laws I believe. Another point brought up by the defense is institutionalized racism. I don't see it. What I don't understand is did both parties have a legal right to be in the dwelling? Any restraining orders in place? Seem to me the prosecution got this one right. Anyone follow this case? First time I am hearing about it.
