Spencer had a malicious neighbor who after a string of bad events ambushed and attacked him. Spencer drew his firearm and shot and killed his attacker. He was charged with 1st and 3rd Degree murder, and manslaughter, and spent 9 months in solitary confinement before being acquitted.
He went through hell, and really experienced bad justice with an over-zealous DA looking to make an example of him. Still after all of this he has some regrets, but none of them include defending his own life.
Give it a listen, its really powerful. Also makes me really want to join the Armed Citizens’ Legal Defense Network. I really should do that.
Also this shows exactly why I carry a gun everywhere I go, but REALLY don’t want to shoot anybody EVER, and will be happy to live a long life without ever having to fire a shot to defend my, or anybody else’s life. Still sometimes you aren’t given that choice. Spencer’s case is hardly the worst case scenario, but even the best case where the police recognize you as the defender quickly is still not a great day to have.
