How about the black community (and Hispanics) step up and speak out about gang violence and cultural issues leading their youth down the wrong path? Or is it not my right to speak up about that because I'm a white Christian male?
So we should all disarm and be left defenseless against criminal thugs because blacks are disproportionately victims of SYG?
SYG wasn’t even used in the St. Trayvon case.
Let him do his thing. It will help keep FL red for the midterms.
St. Skittles got exactly what he was asking for.
How about a 250# thug sit on that guys chest and cover his nose and mouth with his hand all the while basheing his head into the concrete over and over until he changes his mind about “stand your ground”.. BTW stand your ground was NEVER used as a defense in this case. it was SELF DEFENSE” YOU MORON- talking about the lawyer and anyone else who is upset st. travon is dead.
Time for their ‘comeback’ tour.
Not only is every reference to stand your ground incorrect, but this part is flatly untrue.
Perhaps these "parents" should teach their spawn to keep their hands to themselves? It is a lesson usually learned by kindergarten so it should be well with in their capacities.
Zimmerman is a jerk but that is immaterial.
Martin chose to turn back after having got away, had he not turned back he would have lived. Zimmerman would have walked around for a while to no avail. We would have never heard of either guy.
It was Martin’s choice to turn back and attack Zimmerman that actually led to his death.
Turns out Martin was a jerk too, one who thought his being offended or creeped out justified violence.
The defender of a young man beating another mans head into the sidewalk over and over has pretty much shot his own credibility all to hell.
Teach your feral young to NOT behave like rabid animals. Problem solved.
Some here at FR would agree
Parents raise a dysfunctional son who uses drugs and steals from people and is busy slamming someones head into the cement. Gee no wonder he got shot
Family attorney? What family? Had he been in a real family he may not have become a criminal and attempted to murder an armed citizen.
Go ban Skittles .and leave well enough alone.
If you don’t want to be shot by your victim, then don’t be a criminal.
Criminals disproportionately affected.
Boo hoo, said no one.
Felon journeyman Saint Trayvon of the Order of the Purple Drank got hisself dead because he attacked Zimmerman, and Zimmerman acted in self defense. Stand your ground was not used as a defense at trial.
Crumplestiltson is a racist ...
Bullies don’t like it when they know they can be shot for shoving someone to the ground making that person extra vulnerable unless they have a firearm to even the odds.
Cry me a river bullies.
Plus they are crying tears as they champion Obummer is no longer in the White house bashing cops and with the racist Eric Holder threatening to nationalize all local & state police under DC rules.
These people have the gravest mis-knowledge of “Stand your Ground” and “Castle Doctrine”.
Neither allows anyone to shoot another human being. There is NO LAW that allows someone to shoot another person.
The difference is that the person who is viewed as acting in self defense will be free until their court date. Their court date they will have to defend their killing of another human being just like a criminal.
I opened eyes with this statement a long time ago on Facebook (when I was a fool and still a member there). If someone breaks into your house without Castle Doctrine, you as the defending homeowner will have your guns taken from you, and very likely spend a night in jail. You may even need to post an expensive bond to be free until your court date. With Castle Doctrine you still have a court date to defend your actions, but in the meantime you will not be in jail and you will not have your weapons taken from you.
Stand your Ground extends the decision to outside of the home with a few exceptions. First of all, the murder weapon WILL be taken into evidence. That’s going to happen. And if you use something exotic like a flintlock pistol or a DE 50 cal or an AR pistol you will have to answer a LOT more questions. You by yourself will be allowed to go home after filing a statement and awaiting your court trial.
Neither of these laws “allow someone to kill someone”. It just adjusts you jailtime accordingly.
