    FL - Nikki McCormick, 21, shot to death, Wahneta, 28 April 2009

    MIAMI, Florida (CNN) -- Authorities do not plan to file charges against a Florida orange grove owner who fatally shot a 21-year-old woman, saying he is protected under the state's controversial "no retreat" law.

    But the woman's boyfriend faces second-degree murder charges in her death, because the woman was shot to death during an alleged felony -- the theft of an SUV.

    WOW! That law would definitely make me re-think a life of crime.
    Say what you mean, mean what you say, but don't say it mean.
    We are all just trying to make sense of an unimaginable crime.

    Well, I'm sorry, but I see nothing wrong with that law as long as the circumstances are thoroughly investigated.
