Yet the men in both houses who wrote this bill, and sponsored it say it "clearly was not meant to protect someone under these circumstances", referring to Zimmerman.<quoted text>
The evidence appears to be in Mr. Zimmerman's favor. Subtract the political angles and emotional conjecture from this case and it appears to be a clear case of self-defense, albeit a tragic one.
Despite media assertions to the contrary, the Florida Legislature clearly enacted Fla.Stat.§§ 776.012, 776.013, 776.032 and § 776.041 for very good reasons. This case appears to fall squarely into those statutory protections. I'm handling a similar case right now, and the Legislators' intent was to avoid such drawn-out torture for people who righteously defend themselves.
Presumably, they know more about the intent of SYG than you.
