Blacks commit around 70 percent of all robberies and about 80 percent of all shootings in the city.
Add Hispanic shooters, and you account for 98 percent of all shootings in the city.
“Whites, by contrast, were only 5 percent of all violent crime suspects in 2011. According to victim and witness reports, they commit barely over 1 percent of all shootings and less than 5 percent of all robberies.”

Wasn't the recent Ricin-laced letter writers, Newtown school shooter the Boston Marathon bombers, the Unabomber, Timothy McVeigh and his brother, all white? It seems that serial killers, mass shooters, and terrorist bombers are mostly white people.

The defense is not using "stand your ground", at least at present.
Their defense is straightforward self-defense.
That's not the way I understand it but I could be mistaken. Zimmerman merely waived his right to a "Stand Your Ground" immunity hearing that would have allowed a judge to make a decision in his case. The "Stand Your Ground" law will still be used in his defense....or so I have been led to believe.

Zimmerman's defense attorney, Mark O'Mara, stated: "We'd much rather have the jury address the issue of criminal liability or lack thereof."

In California a person could not get away with shooting someone just because they were confronted about their presence in the neighborhood or they merely felt threatened. California law is pretty specific, self-defense can only be used if you were in fact physically assaulted or threatened inside your home. In California, if you can walk away from a confrontation...you better do so. To do anything else is not considered the act of a "reasonable" person. Basically, you "can not use more force than you were threatened with." I can't even imagine what our homicide rate would be if we initiated a law like Florida's. Scary to think of.
As far as Martin/Zimemrman is concerned, it works both ways. Your logic seems to dictate the person shot should not have more rights than the last man standing. If both were acting in self-defense under Florida law (admittedly, that has not been determined) doesn't Trayvon's death result in a terrible tragedy rather than a crime? Honestly, Florida's law is as much the shooter as Zimmerman. Even Florida's judges and prosecutors can't come to agreement on what is justified and what isn't. I'm surprised the law has survived this long.
And if that's the case, then Florida needs to come to a happy medium where no one is happy.

If law enforcement, prosecutors and defense attorney's are confused, it can only breed more confusion and trouble.

So is this event a tragedy? Possibly. Will it be corrected going forward? I hope so.

Like Yeah said, you people seem determined to return us to the days of the wild west and hangman's nooses for horse stealing. Sort of goes with the conservative quest to return us to the days of the Congressional Congress. Your concept of progress isn't progress at all.

Some states have laws requiring the Governor to appoint a Senator of the same party as the deceased or resigned Senator.

Change the law if you think that is the correct approach.

Jean from Queens provides no data to support this charge.

Many ghetto drive-by shooters are likely serial killers/mass murderers.

And Muslim dogs don't count as "white."

Just because YOU don't like it-TOUGH.

Decent, law abiding, hard working people are sick and tired of NOT so decent other people trying to TAKE, or mess with, what is NOT theirs.

Real simple for people with half a brain anyway-

Don't be trying to take, by ANY means, OR tresspass of OR on Or harm in any way- what isn't (and never was) yours.

Pretty BASIC stuff.

Did you include that photo because Obama and the Democrats now changed the Statue of Liberty so the lamp is gone and the palm of the right hand faces (Hiel Hitler) forward?

I know you Democrats/Fascists really hate the Jews too.

When are you Democrats going to replace the headpiece with the SS Helmut. Instead of "Uncle Same Wants You", it's now "Democrats will get You!". Just ask anyone who's been harassed by Obama & the IRS.

If you try to protect your "stuff" from thieves or vandals and they attack you, force is justified. Otherwise, it will never stop.
