Self-defense Legal in Florida

Burglary suspect killed in North Miami - He lived and worked at his place of business. At 2 AM he found some people burglarizing his establishment. There was a confrontation.
“He heard noise,” said Sgt. Trevor Shinn of the North Miami Investigations Unit, “They were removing property from the vehicles. There was a confrontation; he shot at them.”

Police arrived to find the teen lying in front of the residence with a gunshot wound. They notified emergency rescue workers, who were unable to save the teen, according to a statement issued by North Miami police spokesman Lt. Neal Cuevas.
A 15-year-old, who the Brady Bunch will count as a child tragically shot, is dead. (The Brady Bunch doesn't like to worry about facts like legal self-defense.) His partner is arrested and charged with a whole bunch of stuff including murder.

Self-defense is a human right, and in Florida it is also your legal right. Police don't expect the guy who did the shooting to face any charges.
