Defense of 3rd Parties-Caution Advised

Florida Law allows you to come to the aid of a 3rd party, but caution is advised.  Good Samaritans have come to the defense of 3rd parties countless times.  However, mistakes happen all too often.  Undercover officers attempting to make arrests have had guns drawn on them.  Victims who overpowered their attackers have been held at gun point.  Unless you see the entire event unfold, how can you tell who started it?  This video, originally created for U.S. LawShield, features attorney James Phillips of the Firearm Firm.  Attorney James Phillips informs us, what the law allows in the Defense of 3rd parties, and provides reasons to be cautious when deciding to intervene.  To learn more about the Defense of 3rd Parties visit our related deadly force to defend another post.
