If I were the governor I put them in File 13. I guess that’s why I’m not a governor. This is clearly a manufactured crisis that needs no attention.
They will tweak the law just enough where on the surface it looks harmless enough but the minute the law is broken, there will be a federal investigation.
The stand your ground law worked perfectly with Zimmerman. If he had not shot Martin, Zimmerman would be dead. If Martin was still alive he should be prosecuted for attempted murder.
No, no changes needed here.
I hope Gov. Scott ash cans the panel's recommendations.
OK. Tweak it. But add a provision that says that the armed security (including police) for state officials and legislators cannot unholster their firearm until the protectee has been shot. That’s “shot” and not “attacked”. If someone wants to go at them with a baseball bat, then they have to run away or just take their beating. If its good enough for the citizenry, it should be good enough for our “leaders”.
The governor should send him a nice form letter, thanking him for his interest in the operation of the government of the state of Florida, and include a “Visit Florida” bumper sticker.
Sometimes the little insults sting so much more.
We’re running out of victims to justify new laws to protect victims.:)
Governor Scott would do well to ignore these clowns.
Obama: "If I had a brother, he'd look like Chris."
I don’t see how “Stand your ground” applies here, unless someone is arguing that the law influenced Zimmerman’s thought processes that night. If his story is correct, he pulled his gun after being assaulted, and his self-defense rights are sufficient alone.
In other words, better a hundred crackers be killed by black perps, than a single black perp be killed by a cracker.
Stand Your Ground doesn’t even apply to this case, yet this horse$hit continues on, and on, and on.......
Why don’t you try making major changes to the behavior and morality of your people, Mr. Smith, because therein lies the root of the problem.
They want you to be unable to defend yourself from the criminal element and as evidenced the lynch Zimmerman crowd, so do a lot of members of this forum.
Yeh, the first ConCon was to only “update” the AoC, too!
But it ended up a secret Concon w/built-in openings for modification (lately called “flaws”)
leading to our present “situation”!
See, for instance William Buppert’s piece on The God That Failed...
“an independent task force created in the wake of the Travyon Martin shooting”
Why order a task force in light of the Martin shooting when we don’t even know what happened? What can that case teach us about Stand Your Ground if Stand Your Ground didn’t apply? If Zimmerman somehow lured Martin into attacking him because of his depraved mind, then it’s 2nd degree murder and Stand Your Ground doesn’t apply. If Martin instigated violence against Zimmerman and Zimmerman only fired after he was pinned and had no escape, then Stand Your Ground doesn’t apply.
ALL his recomendations are EXACTLY why we need stand your ground in the first place.
He is exhibit A in all that is wrong with the democrat party.
This report should be circular filed and anyone who signs onto it should be primaried.
