What is your point? We know that SYG enacted protection to the victim. It was a move in the right direction. It should make criminals worry about their safety when attacking innocent people. Which it does, thus all the criminals wanting it repealed now.
Sorry to cause confusion here but a functional brain is required in which case it is self-explanatory. Under the original instructions the jury could have convicted GZ, under the revised SYG instructions the jury had no choice but to acquit!!

Here is the actual provision (jury instruction) read to Florida juries prior to the legislature's enactment of Stand Your Ground.
"The defendant cannot justify the use of force likely to cause death or great bodily harm unless he used every reasonable means within his power and consistent with his own safety to avoid the danger before resorting to that force. The fact that the defendant was wrongfully attacked cannot justify his use of force likely to cause death or great bodily harm if by retreating he could have avoided the need to use that force."
The same provision after SYG enacted by the Florida Legislature in 2005 changed to:
“A person who is not engaged in an unlawful activity and who is attacked in any other place where he or she has a right to be has no duty to retreat and has the right to stand his or her ground and meet force with force, including deadly force if he or she reasonably believes it is necessary to do so to prevent death or great bodily harm to himself or herself or another or to prevent the commission of a forcible felony.”
So..? The Zimmerman case was NOT a SYG case was it..?

He may be your idea of a man, he was sticking his fingers inside his cousin when she was six, and of course Koresh was raping girls as soon as they started to menstruate.

You have no idea what a man is, you pathetic waste of skin, to you, a man is someone who offers you a hankie to spit in when he is done.

" Florida 'stand your ground' law yields some shocking outcomes depending on how law is applied

By Kris Hundley, Susan Taylor Martin and Connie Humburg, Times Staff Writers

Friday, June 1, 2012 10:25am

Florida's "stand your ground'' law has allowed drug dealers to avoid murder charges and gang members to walk free. It has stymied prosecutors and confused judges.• It has also served its intended purpose, exonerating dozens of people who were deemed to be legitimately acting in self-defense. Among them: a woman who was choked and beaten by an irate tenant and a man who was threatened in his driveway by a felon.

Seven years since it was passed, Florida's "stand your ground" law is being invoked with unexpected frequency, in ways no one imagined, to free killers and violent attackers whose self-defense claims seem questionable at best.

Cases with similar facts show surprising — sometimes shocking — differences in outcomes. If you claim "stand your ground" as the reason you shot someone, what happens to you can depend less on the merits of the case than on who you are, whom you kill and where your case is decided."

Criminal law does not protect the “law abiding citizen”– it punishes the offender!
You never seize to amaze in you spectacular ignorance, driveling on and on with your pathetic wingnuz-broken-record. A crime is a public injury; criminal statutes reflect the rules that must be followed for a civil society to function. Crimes are an offense to civil society and its social order. In short, crimes are an offense to the public, and someone who commits a crime has committed an injury to the public and must be punished.
Criminal law differs from civil law in several important ways. For starters, since crimes are public injuries, they are punishable by the government. It is the government’s responsibility to bring charges against criminals. In fact, private citizens may not prosecute each other for crimes.

Actually it does not, stand your ground law protects criminals! Florida's "stand your ground" self-defense law should be titled the Criminals Relief Act. When the controversial law was enacted in 2005, law enforcement officials warned it would be invoked by people prone to violence and mayhem. Seven years later, it's clear, those fears have been realized. Gang members, drug dealers, domestic abusers and other criminals have walked away from killings thanks to "stand your ground," and it's clearer than ever that the law should be repealed. Lawmakers who suggest a tweak can fix the problems are putting politics over sound public policy and the safety of Floridians.
Analysis of more than 100 fatal "stand your ground" cases by Tampa Bay Times staff writers have found that nearly 60 percent of people claiming the self-defense legal protection had been previously arrested, and one in three were accused of a violent crime. All told, 119 people who invoked "stand your ground" after killing someone had been arrested 327 times for criminal activities.

So what? Punish the offender!
You never cease to amaze in the protecting of the criminal.
Trayvon Martin's case did punish the offender! He attacked Zimmerman, and suffered the consequences.
According to the laws of Florida, he got what he deserved. You have a problem with the laws of Florida and want revenge. You are wrong!
Wake up and smell the coffee. You are wrong. Blacks should want right over wrong. Not black over everything else.
