The state's public safety task force charged with tackling Florida's controversial "stand your ground" self defense law began its first public hearing Tuesday before a tiny CentralFlorida audience made up largely of news reporters.

The task force, led by Lt. Gov. Jennifer Carroll, will review the law to determine whether the Legislature should revise it.

Jennifer is a good woman, and this "reporter" seems to be a little pissed off about our Lieutenant Governor being a black Republican woman.

Yeah, maybe the liberals want to change the law so you have to have your head slammed against on the concrete by your assailant for a minimum of 5 minutes before you can shoot, and you have to have video documentary proof of this.

Egad liberals are mentally deficient. They are to logic as oil is to water.

In the end this is all meaningless.
Only one person walking this earth has the right to decide when and how I defend my life or that of my family. That person is me.

Yes but other people have the right to decide whether you made the right decision.

Better to be tried by 12 than carried by 6.

"Police and prosecutors cannot grant immunity under stand your ground, even though the statute says otherwise, Marx said. Immunity is only granted by a judge at a pretrial hearing."

Perhaps it's my advanced years, but that part made no sense to me. Does Florida state law not allow prosecutorial discretion, or do its judges routinely ignore state law?

Skin color is more important to this woman than truth, the law, ideology or party.

I spoke to the Governor at a tea party rally Sunday. Great guy and doesn’t seem the type to budge. He gets his way. The Lt Gov on the other hand, im not sure.

It’s been said before, but is entirely true.
It is preferable to be judged by twelve than carried by six.

Just remember, "controversial" can be defined as something a liberal disagrees with. For example, in Liberal la-la cloud cuckcoo land, gay marriage is just about equality and therefore uncontroversial. Innocent people defending themselves is something the liberals don't like, they want the government police to have a monopoly on defense, therefore citizen self-defense "stand your ground" is controversial.

It's only controversial in the far left propaganda precincts.

First of all stand your ground is not about shooting someone who is on top of you beating the carpola out of you. Thats self defense. You always have the right to defend yourself.

I don’t think so. Jennifer has likely taken a lot of heat from her fellow blacks for being a Republican.
