Michael Giles

Giles was an US airman trying to get into the US military. After being invited out to a nightclub by a friend in 2010, a brawl consisting of 30 to 40 men from fraternities at Florida A&M University broke out. Although not involved in the fight, Giles went into the crowd searching for his friends, when a guy punched him. Fearing for his safety, he grabbed his permitted gun  and shot him. Giles claimed to have stood his ground. But he’s serving 25 years in prison for his actions.

Like Jessica Williams from “The Daily Show” said, “the Stand Your Ground defense is like bleach: it works miracles for whites, but it WILL ruin your colors.”
