Trayvon Martin's mother on 'Stand Your Ground': 'We need to get rid of the law'

Jan 17, 2013 Full story: Lake Wylie Pilot 17

Flanked by lawmakers, the mother of Trayvon Martin fought back tears Tuesday as she called for the repeal of the Stand Your Ground law, which she believes has been used as a shield by the man who shot her son.

Another idiot who wants to deprive the entire population of their right to fend-off attacks from marauders, murderers and rapists because of the actions of a handful of individuals.

Stand your ground is a basic human right; the RIGHT to stand up to thugs who want to harm us. How can a law that recognizes a right protected by the Constitution be a bad law?

Actually, no law should be needed to exercise a right.

Trayvon knew or should have known about the stand your ground law. Martin knew or should have known of the possibility of Zimmerman being armed. Martin knew or should have known that Zimmerman would likely be in fear of his life if Martin attacked Zimmerman (a reasonable man test would show if this is true or not).

Based on the injuries on Zimmerman one of 2 things happened. Martin attacked Zimmerman and paid the price. Or, Zimmerman was beaten up by the police for a really unlikely conspiracy.

The Zimmerman case should have nothing to do with the "Stand Your Ground" law. Zimmerman was on his back, mounted and having his head slammed into the concrete. He was not exercising any right to "not retreat". He was exercising his right to live and go home to his family.

"They want the victim to just lay down and die."

The pacifist is as deadly as the sociopath.

The pacifist is so repulsed by violence, he or she is angered (by the victim) when the victim uses violence to protect itself from his attacker.

"They want the victim to just lay down and die."

Police want a monopoly on the use of force. They don't want non-police using force against their attackers to protect themselves ... they want us dependent on them (even if we die).

Police are always coercing politicians to create laws that protect police from the people.

Antigun laws are one example of laws created by police to protect police from us.

i guess trayvons mom doesn't see the ongoing problem within her culture. the matter of fact that a very high percentage of blacks prey on innocent law abiding citizens. they are a very violent culture and will brutalize their victim without hesitation.

black, white, Hispanic, Asian.. it doesn't matter. a street thug is a street thug. a danger to the community. yes the average black man walking down the street with their baggy clothes and gold teeth and dreadlocks sure needs to be looked out a little closer. the cops need to continue and start pushing harder on enforcing the laws down here in south Florida.

In Trayvon's case he is 100% rehabilitated.

This is the same mother that kicked her son out of his home for being out of control? I guess she thought someone else should deal with her problem child. Someone did.

Not-so-fast amigo, the USA has a Constitution that very smart men crafted to deal with criminals whether they be amateur thugs or government thugs. 2A is the line in the sand that is there to protect us when all-else fails. That is why it MUST be protected from tyranny from all sources. We are NOT Mexico.

The Mexican right tom keep and bear arms was taken away in 1968. I strongly urge American citizens to not take for granted the 2nd Amendment. Protect it like a jewel. If the law abiding Mexican citizen had the ability to defend themselves properly it would be a different story. Plus most of the shootings are amongst rivals anyway. As in who cares? Very few instances of law abiding private citizens being shot. Keep your firearms and thugs like Traygone aren't any real threat.

Please be careful when you smack a junglebunny, they are infected disgusting vile things.

Use a mask at all times, triple gloves at all times, please use disposable coveralls, please cover all areas of exposed skin. and do not look at a junglebunny for longer them 3mins as this can affect the human brain.

When done smacking a junglebunny, burn all clothes, gloves, shoes, protective clothing, in a pit and then bury it at least 6ft.

Please stay safe.

Travelocity has some good deals on tickets to Californica. Perhaps you could take a trip there and test your theory.
