I see jail time for this guy. Once the bad guy turns and runs and you shoot him in the back, it is no longer self defense.

it never really was self defense.
he jumped over the fence to confront the guy.
he wanted to stop him
he took a gun with him to help him do the job.....

Time will tell.

It will all come down to what would a prudent person do if in the same situation. IMO, not what this guy did.

I believe most people have a fairly good idea of what self defense really means and  what the stand your ground laws are about. Unfortunately, some people still don't agree with it. In this case however, the shooter let his anger dictate his actions, instead of common sense.
