That was my big issue - the Stand Your Ground law. That only applies to being approached and feeling threatened or your personal space invaded.<quoted text>
I'm not, he never should have been charged. Have you even heard of this?
Unarmed handicap Hispanic Man Shot By Black man in Phoenix

lets see how much backwards justice AZ has ?
In a case that is being compared to the Trayvon Martin shooting, a black man who shot and killed an unarmed man outside an Arizona restaurant is claiming self-defense.
On Tuesday, April 3, 2012, around 7:30 p.m., 29-year-old Daniel Adkins, who appears to be a white male Hispanic, was killed outside a Laveen, Arizona, Taco Bell at 7233 South 51st Avenue, near Baseline Road, said Phoenix police.
Authorities said the shooter, a 22-year-old black man, was pulling out of the Taco Bell drive thru when he crossed paths with Adkins, who was walking his dog on the sidewalk.
One report indicates Adkins struck the driver’s vehicle with a bat or a metal pole after he and the driver exchanged words.
Investigators did not find a weapon at the scene, indicating the black driver lied about it..
However, an independent eyewitness said Adkins swung his fist in the direction of the driver several times, according to various local news sources.
Like Florida, Arizona has a “Stand Your Ground” law, which allows a “victim” to use deadly force when faced with a life or death confrontation.
Thus far, the shooter has not been arrested or charged with a crime.
Adkins’ family members are calling for justice.
Where's all the libs calling for justice? where's Al and Jesse?
If people can use the Stand Your Ground law and claim any provocation justifies it, things would begin to unravel.
Can't have vigilantes running around even if with good intentions.
