Not true. All one has to do is read this thread. You declare that SYG had nothing to do with Zimmerman. I point out that the very article that you posted that you think supports your position in fact proves your position wrong. All of the sudden, you are insisting that someone claimed that Zimmerman waiving his immunity hearing was insignificant. It's a psychosis with you.

"Stand Your Ground" Has Nothing to do With the Zimmerman Case
Other than ginning up black turnout for Obama's re-election effort in the crucial swing state of Florida and enflaming racial tensions (which solidifies the Democrat base), another partisan goal the media hopes to achieve from the Zimmerman case is to toxify the "Stand Your Ground" laws that currently exist in 30 states.
But like the fact that Zimmerman is not white and that there is zero evidence showing race was in any way involved in his actions the night of the shooting, the media have also bumped into another inconvenient reality: "Stand Your Ground" had nothing to do with Zimmerman's defense or acquittal.
The Zimmerman case was a simple case of self-defense:
The jury received standard instructions. Zimmerman did not invoke the Stand Your Ground provision. Zimmerman later waived his right to a pretrial immunity hearing under the Stand Your Ground procedures.
And as National Reviews Sterling Beard points out,The only time Stand Your Ground came up during the trial proper was when a prosecution witness stated that hed taught a class Zimmerman had attended that covered Stand Your Ground.
Even the prosecution rejects the cynical attempt to tie Martins death to Stand Your Ground. Prosecutor John Guy couldnt have made it clearer during the trial:This case is not about standing your ground. During their post-trial press conference, as conservative talk show host Victoria Taft first noted, a Miami Herald reporter asked the prosecution team specifically whether Stand Your Ground affected the facts in this case and whether this case could have been won, perhaps, pre the changes in the law.
Prosecutor Bernie De La Rionda replied:You know, self-defense has existed for a long time. And weve dealt with it in Jackson for a long time.
These facts, though, have failed to stop Eric Holder or the media or your dumb ayse from pretending the complete opposite is true.
