It's great that even Florida lawmakers think this situation is bulls***.

Why do we even have this Stand Your Ground law when its been exploited by violent criminals? It's an awful idea of a law and needs to be repealed.

I know, we need to outlaw self defense entirely in this country. I mean we already have criminals suing people for injuring themselves when they break into the homeowners house.

Which is just as hilarious as it is f***ed up.

Because you should be able to defend yourself. And more often then not, people who try to claim self defense when it doesn't apply go to jail. Remember that old store owner who shot a kid laying on the floor bleeding out that tried to claim self defense?

Good to see an article finally explaining what anyone with half a brain figured out when this started

Let's not forget the police officer who shot the handcuffed guy with his gun and claim to be getting his teaser out. Why taser a guy already in handcuffs.

Lol where are all the dumbasses that kept claiming he was protected now? Even the people who made the law say Zimmerman should have been arrested.

We'll see. That's the intention of the bill crafters, but what about the law's actual application and interpretation when it hits courts? When it actually comes to official charges? Even if they didn't "intend" for this kind of application, there seem to be scads of examples just like this where someone skirts by under this law despite the absurdity of it all.
