I'm Quoted in Monkey Dance News Piece
Happy New Year!
Also, yesterday I was quoted in a news article yesterday re: a Monkey Dance that ended in a shooting recently in Florida.
A fistfight between neighboring businesses leads to Charles Cook III punching a man, who in turn shot him. But no arrests were made.
That's not so unusual. What is unusual is this particular reporter spent a considerable time on the phone with me learning the difference between self-defense, stand-your-ground, and self-defense immunity, and I think you can see that reflected in her article.
The full news article is here: ‘Stand your ground’: Boynton brawl leads to gunshot, but no charges
Surveillance video and 911 recordings related to the Monkey Dance can be seen/heard in the video image embedded above (and accessible here).
(NOTE: The article describes me as a "Colorado lawyer." I do live in Colorado, and I am a lawyer, so technically that's correct. I'm barred, however, in Massachusetts.)
