The law is an excuse to use when you have wrongfully killed someone and try to make a story up of imminent danger. We are in imminent danger everyday we walk out of our door to go to work, school, or anywhere else.

I agree with a few comments that I've read; the "Stand Your Ground" law does not mean if you're a teenager you can be killed for Walking While Black, eating skittles, wearing hood (covering for the head and neck and sometimes the face) Webster's Definition and walking in your own neighborhood. Now zimmerman feared for his life this is his defense, Why continue the pursuit after being told to stand down!

Now zimmerman feared for his life this is his defense, Why continue the pursuit after being told to stand down! It's like he went out for neighborhood watch and said " I'm going to take the law into my own hands tonight" regardless to what the Police say I'm above the law and I'll just take the defense of the "Stand Your Ground" law. zimmerman made this racial not the people! and yeah if it were a white kid and a black person on neighborhood watch and a killing had taken place, the "Stand Your Ground" law would be obsolete. Everybody not just black folk can be accused of passing judgement. Especially when you out and out accused Trayvon of being a thug. If there was a Facebook page back when, what would your page look like and what would you be accused of being affiliated with? I'm just saying nobody is exempt from this ridicule! Thanks for Serving our Country Glenn and Robert thanks for your comments. We can agree to disagree with each other as adults and not want to engage in "Stand Your Ground" because of disagreements. The battle is not yours it's the Lords!

Rosalind Gamble by his own testimony, he had, unless you're asserting that Mr. Zimmerman believed that Mr. Martin had gone back to Mr. Zimmerman's vehicle and was waiting for him there. Otherwise, going back to his vehicle would be standing down. Strictly speaking, however, he was not told to stand down. He was told "we don't need you to do that". They are not synonymous.

Otherwise, going back to his vehicle would be standing down. Strictly speaking, however, he was not told to stand down. He was told "we don't need you to do that". They are not synonymous. Claiming they are the same is playing Monday morning quarterback. I don't know if that is your intention or if I am misreading you. Perhaps you could elaborate and rephrase your statement, so we can both be certain that your contention is being understood in the manner you intend.

However, I wonder to what level England would use the law if we replaced this pathetic "new age parenting" with the discipline that was instilled in me. I would go as far as to say we should have the death penalty--why the hell should the Yorkshire Ripper still be breathing? I knew Josephine Whittaker went to school with the brother Michael and I worked with two of the daughters of one of his other victims, this bastard should have been put against a wall and shot. Do I think your state should abolish this law? No I bloody well don't!

Iin the US many folks of European descent have a very pervasive sense of guilt over the fact that over 400 years ago a small percentage of our ancestors bought native Africans from other Africans brought them to America and forced them work and frankly treated them very badly: worse than we can probably understand in this modern day. This is an accepted historical fact along with the deplorable treatment of the Native American tribes whom they did try to enslave at one point but the Europeans were unable to force them into slavery. This guilt can be very strong even though the ancestors of most modern day Americans immigrated to the US after the civil war and the abolition of slavery. Mainly because of this guilt many things are allowed to an African American versus for example if your grandparents were Italian or Swedish or Irish etc. Despite many attempts at legislating the issue away (affirmative action laws etc.) But since Mother Nature likes everything in balance we are currently seeing somewhat of a backlash (the pendulum swings both ways) in short many people of European Descent as well as our newest immigrants from many diverse cultures all over the Earth i.e. (China, S. America, Eastern Europe Mexico, Vietnam Etc.) are learning that being a citizen with rights also means that citizenship comes with responsibilities and obligations to society. One of these is to defend not only yourself but your family and neighbors. In order for this to happen laws like Sttand Your Ground must exist.

If one is in imminent fear of loss-of-consciousness or death during an assault or altercation, one has the natural (meta-legal) right to defend oneself, up to and including the use of lethal force of whatever sort. The reason I include fear of imminent loss-of-consciousness is because if one is fear that one might be rendered unconscious, and thus totally incapacitated, then the implication is that one would then be at the mercy of one assailant, and that that said assailant could *then* do...

If one is in imminent fear of loss-of-consciousness or death during an assault or altercation, one has the natural (meta-legal) right to defend oneself, up to and including the use of lethal force of whatever sort. The reason I include fear of imminent loss-of-consciousness is because if one is fear that one might be rendered unconscious, and thus totally incapacitated, then the implication is that one would then be at the mercy of one assailant, and that that said assailant could *then* do whatever they might wish--including, of course, kill you--and you'd be totally incapacitated to do anything about it. And, contrary to Dean Shamblen, Neil R. Friedman, and others commenting here, one not only has the natural (meta-legal, meta-constitutional) *right* to care a handgun, but there certainly can be contexts, contrary to Neil Friedman, in which carrying a handgun (whether open-carry or concealed) is, if not perfectly reasonable, then at least far from especially unreasonable. Now, 2nd Amendment rights can be (minimally) regulated, but certainly NOT outright *abrogated*, as far too many here seem cavalierly all-too-sanguine/complacent about! One not only should NOT be required to retreat (i.e., as distinguished from "standing one's ground"), oftentimes retreat is simply not (or no longer) a viable option. If a man is assaulted-&-battered, and comes to be in not-unreasonable fear of imminently being rendered unconscious, and thus incapacitated to further (be able to) defend his life-&/or-limb, then he has the right to use whatever force is necessary, up to and including lethal force, to repel the attack. Ethically & jurisprudentially speaking, this is virtually **axiomatic**. So, with all due respect to whomever, let's dial-down all the bleeding-heart whining, gnashing-of-teeth, and hand-wringing.

The entire Trayvon Martin & George Zimmerman affair is indeed tragic. IF Zimmerman's story is true, then the shooting is justified under the law. Notice that I said 'IF'. Ideally, we *need* witness corroboration (or perhaps contradiction) of Zimmerman's account. IF Zimmerman was assaulted from behind, IF he was battered to the ground, IF he was in fear of imminent incapacitation and thus possible **death** at the hands of his assailant, then, again, the shooting is justified. That's a lot of 'IFs'. Third-party EYEWITNESS testimony is thus not only to be much preferred, but VITAL here to get at the TRUTH.

All that said, however, the "Stand Your Ground" law is really virtually axiomatic. One might seek clarification and refinement of it in terms of application, but the law itself is virtually unassailable, being grounded in the natural right of self-defense.

Innocent people need the 2nd amendment and Felons and Govt Thugs Need gun Control, to Control the people who Pay them.
The Castle Doctrine/Stand Your Ground laws in FL merely Reinforce the 2nd Amendment, clarifying that one may Protect and Defend Our Person and our Home, when threatened. It says we need not Run First and Then turn around and fire IF they don't kill us First. That is Consisten with the Constitution, as Laws Should Be. The NDAA and the Drone laws, are UN-Constitutional, to help the Thug Govt get Control of us and Slap us Down.

Let's NOT Try this FL case in the Public but in the Courts. FB is Global - with NO RIGHT to Influcence Florida Laws! There are Always Two sides to Everything, and the Angry Vocal side is Often wrong.

What about the New Black Panthers saying they are going to Burn FL Down, Kill "crackers" and their babies, etc.?? It's Convenient that black posters here IGNORE the Facts when it comes to Danger to white people and danger to ALL of America but they call to Disarm the Victims of their "brothers" in the NBP. The law should be and the Constitution IS Color-Blind. (Remember, dedicated to the purpose that ALL men are created EQUAL, and ....endowed by our CREATOR, NOT Govt, with certain INALIENABLE Rights, that Among them are.... (but then the Constitution and Bill of Rights Details those rights and NOW Black people and white, egged on by a BIASED Media Trial and Lynching, Calling for Blood and that's not Wrong per the Media and the US Government, President Himself didn't Speak Out Against Violence but is Smiling about it....
This is WRONG. I am a Floridian, who would be Put At Risk by repealing this law, along with people I care for who are elderly, weak unable to defend themselves. The Police would Not get there in Time to help me if I were attacked or an intruder broke in. I have lived in FL for the time I've not lived in 3rd world countries where people Have to care for themselves, and I've not seen such viciousness and hate against the Whole of White America, as now.
That's what Obama and Holder have brough us DOWN to, Thuggery Upheld by a Thug Federal Govt and its leader....
It is NOT because he is Half black that this happens -
it's because he is Selfish and Greedy and does what gets him Paid Extra Beyond his salary and unlimited expense accounts.... He got the Nobel Peace prize for Nothing he did, but for being the one they Chose to Put there, to Divide the People and weaken us. So far, a Lot of people are Falling for that. Freedom under the Constitution is for EVERY Man, Woman and Child in the USA. Read it, Understand it and You Will Want to Restore our country, not just for You but for All of We the People! I pray cooler heads prevail.

les reed ! What a space cadet!! I don't remember when the UK lost its rights as citizens to have arms, maybe it was after the revolutionary war that you lost. :-/. As an American I totally believe in gun ownership, and the more citizens armed (Our constitution gives us the RIGHT TO BEAR ARMS) the more criminals will be thinking twice as to which old man to try and rob. Also don't make fun of our Religious freedom either. That is the very reason we broke off with the UK and kicked your...

So last, tell your stateside friends that are hear because they either love our lower taxes, or our freedoms to come on back to your little Island ans shut the front door! :-)

I agree, and damn, Larry - the guy gave an intelligent opinion, that you may not agree with, but what's some tired-ass, 50+ year old "we saved your bacon" comment got to do with it? That made about as much sense as southerners screaming "Fergit, HELL"!!
I guess the only way to take your comment, is to assume you made it as you do not disagree with Les' premise.
