Stand Up for Stand-Your-Ground in Minnesota!

As Lee County Deputy Dean Bardes lay flat on his back on the side of the interstate being pummeled to the point of near unconsciousness by Edward Strother, he begged an armed citizen who stopped to offer help to shoot the suspect. Seconds later, the vicious attack on Deputy Bardes was ended as Ashad Russell opened fire with his lawfully carried concealed pistol, striking Strother three times in the chest.
