Stand Your Ground – A White Privilege Hunting License

In Florida, we see what the “stand your ground” law has become – a hunting license for the folks you don’t like. George Zimmerman deliberately pursued Trayvon Martin because he assumed the hoodie-clad teenager was a criminal. George Zimmerman deliberately pursued Trayvon Martin after being told to stay away by the police. George Zimmerman deliberately pursued Trayvon Martin, a teenager who was holding a bag of Skittles and a can of Arizona watermelon drink, while talking on the phone. George Zimmerman instigated the fight that led to Martin’s death. This was not “standing ones ground”, this was downright pursuit. Yet somehow the jury found that Zimmerman was justified in shooting Martin because he feared great bodily harm or death. The punchline is that as long as one gets scared,“stand your ground” means it is a legal free pass to go hunt people down and kill them.“Stand your ground” now means that instead of avoiding conflict, a white male person can go hunting.



I say white and male with intention because a black female was not allowed by the judge to invoke the “stand your ground” law.



Marissa Alexander had never been arrested before she fired a bullet at a wall one day in 2010 to scare off her husband when she felt he was threatening her. Nobody got hurt, but this month a northeast Florida judge was bound by state law to sentence her to 20 years in prison.



And by the numbers and graphs, the story is even worse.

You are a very small minority in the US with your brand of right wing extremism - a small minority that grows smaller each year as the old farts like you die off. You are a plague upon America with your "I got my free money and free health care but no one else should get the same" attitude. And you are a plague upon America with the same arguments that the white slave owners used in the 1800's.
I have more integrity in my little toe than you will ever have in your sodden hatefilled body. My consolation is that you've doomed yourself to hell with your anti-Christian rhetoric.
Somehow I can picture you with a very large American-American roommate spending your eternity being his boy-toy. Perhaps he can share you and the now-banned Crassus.
Say, how did that "56% Romney 44% Obama" thing work out for you? Sounds like you are completely out of touch with what American really thinks.
And that gay marriage thing. Your bigotry failed there as well.
Whites will soon be a minority in the United States, although at your age and with the advanced stage of your body's deterioration from alcohol and tobacco abuse you likely won't be around to see it.
Not doing too well lately, are you?
But at least you are having fun - after all, you are banned on most websites. Say, how's your best buddy Crassus? We don't see much of him around anymore. Did he find a nice boy to settle down with or something?

You were not privy to the same information the jury was. And as mentioned above, Zimmerman is not a white male.

looks like a troll did NOT do it's research.
.
Zimmerman is at least half Jewish on his dad's side. and Jews are Arabic in ancestry. though there is most likely some Caucasian blood in him due to the fact that Zimmerman originated as a Jewish name in Germany. and there was some inter-group marriages back then between the Germans and the Jews.
