I was driving home from work at CNN and chaos and police were suddenly just about everywhere? A rock hit my car and then another one...WTF! Two large guys were trying to block the road...and I slowly, but steadily moved through them. They yeilded but, broke both of my car windows as I passed with tire irons as well as denting the sh! t out of my hood, doors, and trunk? Something else broke my back window? I later learned that the Rodney King verdict had been announced. Again; I was armed or...

I was driving home from work at CNN and chaos and police were suddenly just about everywhere? A rock hit my car and then another one...WTF! Two large guys were trying to block the road...and I slowly, but steadily moved through them. They yeilded but, broke both of my car windows as I passed with tire irons as well as denting the sh! t out of my hood, doors, and trunk? Something else broke my back window? I later learned that the Rodney King verdict had been announced. Again; I was armed or my sidearm was in the glove-box, no chambered round, in a legal weapon case, with the magazine in another legal case as was required by the law at that time. Totally useless under those circumstances. My insurance went up 65.00 a yr after that claim. My medical bill was about 775.00 for getting the glass outta my eyes, a few stitches, and eye-gunk w/ dye, follow-up opthamalmic, eye-patch, etc.....IF I had even shown a firearm to either of those two guys...I would have had to shoot one of both of them immediatel....ended up in jail, faced manslaughter charges, had to bail out...if available...really ugly situation........

my understanding is that the 911 dispatcher clearly told Zimmerman that hey did not need him to follow Martin. he at that point should have stopped as instructed and made sure the police knew the location and full description of Martin and let them do their job. Martin was walking, not looking in anyone's window or checking out anyone's car etc... it wasn't Zimmerman's place to be judge and jury on Martin's innocence or guilt that night. he called 911 to report someone he felt was...

A tragedy all around with no one "winning" anything in this situation. my prayers go out to both families.
my fear is this law makes the vigilantes feel empowered to take the law into their own hands.
I walk in the early morning, with a hoodie on most of the time, what if someone per- judged me? f I felt that I was being followed and had done nothing wrong I would be on the defensive, weapon with me or not.
For this reason alone I am not a fan of "Stand YOur Ground" I think the laws concerning concealed carry and castle doctrine are clear and cover any situation you would need to defend yourself.

My understanding of Self Defense is; If one is in imidiate fear of life or limb of him or herself, family member, or inocent bystander that would other wise be unable to defend themselves. As far as this other thing goes about Zimmerman, if he did indeed shot this young man in the back, it doesn't seem to me there was much of a threat of any of this being the case. Therefore; they need to make this law very clear. As far as I am concerned if you shoot another person in the back, it is murder not self defense.

SHORT AND SWEET! IF SOMEONE TRIES TO HARM MY FAMILY, I WILL USE DEADLY FORCE TO PROTECT THE ONES I LOVE. LAW OR NO LAW. I WOULDN'T BE WORTH MY OWN SALT IF I DIDN'T DO ALL I COULD TO PROTECT MY FAMILY OR MYSELF.

Too many guns or too many idiots? Guns + idiots + dumb laws = dead people. The social environment that Americans live in appear to be getting more volatile. You can repeal dumb laws, you can remove more guns, you can't remove the idiots. But Hey - 2 out of 3 ain't bad.

This law should be amended to the extent that the "dangerous person" must be armed in some way for it to truly be considered self defense.
