E.J. Dionne’s ‘Stand Your Ground’ Fantasies
PJMedia ^ | 2/22/2014 | Howard Nemerov

On Wednesday, Washington Post opinion writer E.J. Dionne Jr. used the Michael Dunn conviction as “proof” that we need to repeal “stand your ground” laws.

(Briefly: Michael Dunn was found guilty of three charges of attempted second-degree murder. After ordering the victims to turn down their “loud music,” Dunn shot into their vehicle, killing one. Dunn claimed self-defense, saying he thought they were going to attack him.)

You are correct about Dionne.

However, I have to note that on NPR, when EJ Dionne and David Brooks debate the issues of the day, Dionne will occaisionally opine that Obama has made a mistake -- but Brooks rarely does so. For Brooks (the NPR Republican), Obama is godlike and perfect. Dionne sees the situation (just slightly) more accurately.

Like girlymen everywhere, Dionne prefers the old ‘Turn and run’ laws.

We should also use the recent politicization of the IRS and the resulting abuse of private citizens to repeal the income tax.

Or perhaps the new "turn and lean forward" laws.

E. J. Dionne: Living proof that using raw sewage for brains simply does not work.

Dunn should have waited until/if one of the guys got out of their vehicle and advanced on him.

Finn's defense was that he thought he saw a shotgun being raised. No shotgun was found but that doesn't mean they didn't dump it.

Police are routinely acquitted or not even charged with murder of civilians on the premise of "I thought I saw a gun" or "He made a threatening movement".
