Honest question - In general, current shooting aside, can’t both parties in an encounter feel threatened and invoke the law?
So, are you saying Zimmerman had just legal cause to shoot?
IMO the law is well thought out, explicit enough, therefore it’s obvious not enough rabble rousers read it to know they haven’t a leg to stand on, or they just don’t give a damn.
They think they will muscle their way through it all with the power of manufactured emotions.
Three paragraphs long? I beg to differ. It's codified as Chapter 776 of the Florida Statutes. The Act added or amended at least Sections 776.012, 776.031, 776.041, 776.05, 776.051, 776.06, 776.07, and 776.08 when you look at the history of those sections.
776.012 is three paragraphs long. 776.041, which states when the defense can't be used by someone who provoked an attack, and when it can, is five paragraphs long.
It's codified as part of Justifiable Use of Force in the Florida Statutes, which you can read in it entirety here.
A better symbol for the Democrat party than a jackass, would be a jackass body with a parrot head...that's what they do best.
