LOOK AT THE DETAILS OF THE CASE IN WHICH THIS MAN WAS *EXCUSED BY A JUDGE ON THE "STAND YOUR GROUND LAW!!*
Last March, Garcia was granted immunity by Miami-Dade Circuit Judge Beth Bloom in the death of Pedro Roteta, according to CBS4 news partner The Miami Herald.
On January 25th, Roteta broke into Garcias truck and stole the radio. Armed with a knife, Garcia chased him down and stabbed Roteta once, killing him.
During the trial, Bloom ruled that Garcia was well within his rights to chase down Roteta to try and get his property back. She also ruled that Garcia acted in self-defense because Roteta had a swung a bag containing several stolen radios at his head.
If Garcia is excused, then GEORGE ZIMMERMAN SHOULD BE EXCUSED TOO!!!

Someone needs to get this to Mark O’Mara, or whoever George Zimmerman’s lawyer is...
On a slightly different take, let's just say this fellow lived an interesting, short life.
It’s all about race. Given the exact same circumstances, if Zimmerman had killed another hispanic, he’d be free.
Tigh Croff (Detroit) got two years and fortunately probably did less than 1.
Croff was sentenced to two years in prison but even the judge said it was excessive given the circumstances.
Croff came home from his job as a security guard to find 3 men breaking into his home for the 3rd time in a week. Croff gave chase and caught the oldest dumbest 53 year old perp. The perp chose to taunt Croff with "What are you going to do, shoot me". Croff killed him.
To me its like a rancher losing stock to wolves. The Rancher doesn't just try to stop them. The rancher hunts them down and kills them or drives them so far away they never return.
I'd be proud to have a neighbor like this "perp".
