This law sucks so they r saying just because he (says) self defence he has the right to kill someones child! Well my daughter was killed in Feburary and I know how this family feels He should be behind bars and this law needs to be gone it wasnt in self defence He was a coward.

If your daughter had been carrying a gun and knew how to use it would she be dead?

les reed You think it is the "norm"? Are you referring to law abiding citizens or criminals? What statistics have you been reading? With regard to getting rid of drugs, how many people are already in prison or dead over the "War on Drugs"? Do you see any credible evidence that the brute force method being employed is working or is even workable? How, exactly, would you propose to "get rid of" drugs?

All it takes is one person who knows what they are doing to stop a criminal. As long as law abiding citizens out number the criminals I say arm them.

I think that Black People should stop killing white people avenging Martins death. He was Latino the shooter but because of those two black pastors others have died calling him white. What would happen if the shouter had white Latino French Italian and Chinese would the blacks then kill one of each or just the whites. Does Martin King agree with this crap. If his son was expelled from school and smoking dope he wouldn't allow any of this and the president he's a jerk to say anything...

If his son was expelled from school and smoking dope he wouldn't allow any of this and the president he's a jerk to say anything because he justified some of this by his comments. That kid was no angel and certainly not a kid. Why do blacks expect to accomplish using this murder for what to create more hate and murder. They need a leader like King or someone that had Love in his heart instead of politics and is money hungry. Do they not know Black people still sell slaves, are in the sex trade and pilfer and murder in Africa. A black friend of mine told me that I couldn't understand the horrors in Africa from Blacks to Blacks and whites. Why r they so righteous and think there all godly. Read the Bible and show me where it says to act the way your acting. I hope and pray the murdering stops and may God have mercy.

Your very right Cyndie Conway and there are many loving Black People that are my friends lots I haven't met and not so loving. I don't mean to do that but it's hard to point out which is which. In Florida where we lived the majority of Black People and White People didn't listen to any facts of this case and a lynch mob was on the move with violence occurring. Now murders are happening across the states 'This is for Martin'. Every comment I read or heard was against white people not...

In Florida where we lived the majority of Black People and White People didn't listen to any facts of this case and a lynch mob was on the move with violence occurring. Now murders are happening across the states 'This is for Martin'. Every comment I read or heard was against white people not latino. If Cyndie were to keep reading she would see my point. What happens when someone is multi races are we to kill one from each race 'or just if there is some white'. I don't like when people make comments when they don't know the whole story and that was my whole point judging others and hurting more people when it's already a bad situation. Even the president couldn't be fair in this situation. These blacks and whites are normally great people but when in a Mob they all have a Mob mentality ask King. No black man or women that I know want to listen to whites suck up to them because their proud people and of their skin. I'm not ashamed to be white. I wasn't very politically correct was I. Sorry Love was always the intention.

They need to repeal this law now! With this law Florida is giving its citizens a free will to take the law into their own hands and take a life. They get away with it by hiding behind this law...put justice back into the hands of our courts not our anger

I am all for protecting my family and myself but if you do not have to shoot at someone you don't. Zimmerman was told by police not to follow and he continued to. He could have stayed away and not be in jail now and Martin would be alive.

I feel that "stand your ground" should only be used in an absolute self defense situation period. Peopel can not go around shooting and using deadly force just for ringing a door bell or stealing anything."stand your ground" should only be about defending yourself or your family in a life threatening situation by any means possible period.

I would disagree in so far as I believe that defense of a third party, such as one's family members is every bit as valid; but I do believe that a reasonable person should be able to recognize imminent peril, and ringing a doorbell does not in any way rise to the level of imminent peril. I would hold that forcing entrance or attempting to do so, is legitimate grounds simply because there is no legitimate reason for forcing entrance except to do harm.

The law is unfair as anybody can make any excuse for killing or harming others they intend to do. It should be repealed upon solution of the latest episode.

Actually, I am referring to a Florida law (not Malaysia). In this case a Black was shot at and killed by someone in self defence.

Does the "Stand your ground" law only apply to those who choose to carry a weapon? I place myself in the situation that Trayvon was in. I sometimes walk at night to my sister's home in the same neighborhood that I live. Sometimes I have some candy to munch on while I'm walking and in cold months, like February, I even wear a hoodie....with the hood on my head. On one of these occasions, had I been followed or stalked such as Trayvon, I would have been scared out of my ever loving mind! Now...

On one of these occasions, had I been followed or stalked such as Trayvon, I would have been scared out of my ever loving mind! Now let's say the guy stalking me pulls over, gets out of his car and approaches me. I discover that he has a gun, which is what has been reported happened with Trayvon. There is a good possibility that I would fight for my life in this situation. I would have tried my best to keep this guy from killing me. Now, would this not be my right in the eyes of the "Stand you ground" law? Or does it only apply to certain people, ie, armed individuals, white males, etc?

A great point! It seems to me that someone who deliberately follows, pursues, and violently engages another individual walking along is the aggressor of the situation and thus shouldn't be able to cry self defense. But that's just how I see it.

Where I live there is a license to carry concealed plus we have the stand your ground law... I'm female... SO, if I see a man walking my way and feel threated I should shoot him from what I am seeing from some of the comments I've noticed here... Oh, and if he has his back to me and I see him put his hand in his pocket, I should feel threatened and shoot him... People get a grip... Only because you cannot associate with what is going on you will side with the idiot Zimmerman... He was told...

Only because you cannot associate with what is going on you will side with the idiot Zimmerman... He was told by the police to do nothing and leave but he took it upon himself to confront and put fear in a young man... I be damn if I just stand there and let ANY PERSON approach me in such a manner as ZIMMERMAN and not try to save my own life... You are all fools! I pray to G_D none of you lose a child over something such as this and guess what? EVEN your nonblack/nonafrican american children are subject to this law... I do not descriminate but you know what I'm thinking I may put aside the caucasian side of my family and just continue to stand my ground against anyone who looks suspect to me and yes... There are a LOT of caucasian men who look at me in the wrong way... I guess I will get my license in order to get the gun my son has been begging me to get to protect myself from people since I will probably be one of the next who was, once again, confronted by these innocent caucasian men...
