Public forum, freebird.

I don't need yours or anyone else's permission to post an opinion. For someone with the word "free" in his name, you sure don't seem to think it applies to everyone.

Florida To Hold 'Stand Your Ground' Hearings After Will Weatherford Agrees To Revisit Law

Reuters | Posted: 08/02/2013

By Tom Brown

MIAMI, Aug 2 (Reuters)- Florida lawmakers will hold hearings this fall on the state's "Stand Your Ground" self-defense law, which has become a lightning rod for criticism following the acquittal of George Zimmerman in the shooting death of unarmed black teenager Trayvon Martin.

The announcement on Friday by Will Weatherford, the speaker of Florida's House of Representatives, marked the biggest concession yet by the state's Republican leaders to protesters' demands for a top-to-bottom review of the law, which allows people in fear of serious injury to use deadly force to defend themselves rather than retreat.

Since Zimmerman's acquittal on July 13, Martin's grieving parents, backed by African-American civic leaders, celebrities, students and political figures, including President Barack Obama and Attorney General Eric Holder, have all said the Stand Your Ground law needs to be re-examined.

Weatherford, in an opinion column published in the Tampa Tribune, said he had asked Representative Matt Gaetz, a fellow Republican who chairs the House Criminal Justice Subcommittee, to lead the hearings. Weatherford did not set a date for the hearings or say how long they would last....(cont.)

Namaste my dear Rose.

I believe that's the reasonable thing to do. As we've seen, Stand Your Ground is nothing more than a license to kill indiscriminately.

You think Russia can be trusted then you don't remember our history with them.
LOL!
It says a lot about a communist society when the right-fringe turn to them for asylum (China, Russia, Cuba, Venezuela). Now I understand, they also want to emulate their criminal justice system?

All is great on this end. I've been incredibly busy.
I'm tutoring undergraduate students off-hours as if I didn't have enough to do already.
But hey, the people are friendlier and truly want to learn. Topix? Not so much! LOL!
I've seen America's most ridiculous illiterates in the IR Forum. Sticking around here too long makes people stupid.

That drug addict has hydroencephalitis (water in the brain).

Did you noticed that the victim that testified during the sentencing of Ariel Castro was a midget?

The case for simple, boring balanced funds

While balanced funds arenít a cure-all for the ails of market timing, they do represent a useful tool for new investors and for those who get a little jittery in downturns.
