Stabbing ruled as self-defense as man chases robber and stabs him to death (FL)

Resource: http://www.newser.com/story/142414/fla-judge-chasing-killing-suspect-was-self-defense.html
A stabbing is ruled as a self-defense when a man runs down a thief and stabs him to death. the man’s roommate informed him that there was two men breaking into his truck. He grabbed a kitchen knife and went after the suspect chasing him more than a block before the stabbing. The suspect had a pocket knife but it never left his pocket.

The police sergeant who supervised the case calls the judge's decision a "travesty of justice," and prosecutors argued that once Roteta ran away from the truck, Garcia no longer had justification to use deadly force.
