Jeopardy, opportunity, ability

 Erick Gelhaus Andy Lopez Sonoma County deputy sheriff Santa Rosa Airsoft Gun.

The shooting of Andy Lopez for the "Crime" of Carrying an airsoft toy Gun in California is interesting for Several Reasons. One, the shooter is an acquaintance whom I know through the Firing Line forum and regard favorably, largely thanks to his pro-RKBA stance on gun rights. The Confluence of special ability, Opportunity and jeopardy Will be Decided by the court, but That Being California, I have Little Doubt That They Would Side with Police. While the airsoft rifle did look very much like a real AK47, the kid carrying it wasn't threatening anyone and so the court would likely center the investigation on whether or not he had acted aggressively.
