    That said, with the constant stream of hysterical declarations that the verdict and Stand Your Ground laws signify the second-coming/continuance of Jim Crow and 'open season' on young black males, it should probably be pointed out that the law has apparently disproportionately benefited black defendants in Florida: http://dailycaller.com/2013/07/16/bl...rtionate-rate/

    Here is a database of Stand Your Ground cases in Florida, easily categorized and aggregated in just about any manner one would want, for quick research: http://www.tampabay.com/stand-your-g...aw/fatal-cases
    Yes it was. Treyvon attacked Zimmerman first and was bashing his head into the concrete, and then went for Zimmerman's gun and could have shot him. It doesn't get more "stand your ground" than that.

    All I said was that Casey Anthony was innocent and is being unfairly persecuted, probably because of being a white woman. The law decided she was not guilty!
    [Trump's] rhetoric is not an abuse of power. In the same way that it's also not against the law to do a backflip off of the roof of your house onto your concrete driveway. It's just mind-numbingly stupid and, to say the least, counterproductive. - Bush did 9-11


    This is not going to go the way you think....

    The operative difference between syg and other self-defense laws is that there is no duty of retreat in syg. As the jury had a reasonable doubt that the defense theory of the case was true and zimmerman was on his back when he felt in danger of his life it wouldn't have mattered whether there was a duty to retreat as zimmerman couldn't retreat under those circumstances.
