    If I shot an unarmed man in self defense, I sure would not want it to be in the area of downtown Seattle at lunchtime, where stories circulate of a low tolerance in general for the carrying of firearms, but this guy was forced to make a decision . . .

    well at least there were witnesses that seemed to have seen him acting in self defense. Does Seattle have a version of the stand your ground law?

    By the time he finally pulled out his weapon and shot the guy, he was no longer standing.

    Wonder if they have a "getting your ass kicked by a crazy guy who's off his medication" law?
