I bet this would not be taking place had everyone known earlier that Travon Martin physically attacked and beat Zimmermans head on the concrete.

The Florida House of Representative has passed a "Stand Your Ground" law that will allow citizens to use deadly force in a public place to defend themselves if they believe they are in danger of death or great bodily harm -- without trying to run away first.
The new bill expands the right of self-defense from the home, where Florida residents already have the right to defend themselves with deadly force without first trying to escape.
Martin was beating Zimmermans head into the sidewalk, witnesses have verified that. Zimmerman acted according to the "stand your ground law"...there fore, Corey can go suck a duck!
