Call for arrest of watch captain who shot kid

CHAPTER 776 JUSTIFIABLE USE OF FORCE 776.012  Use of force in defense of person. 776.012  Use of force in defense of person.—A person is justified in using force, except deadly force, against another when and to the extent that the person reasonably believes that such conduct is necessary to defend himself or herself or another against the other’s imminent use of unlawful force. However, a person is justified in the use of deadly force and does not have a *duty to retreat* if: (1) He or she reasonably believes that such force is necessary to prevent imminent death or great bodily harm to himself or herself or another or to prevent the imminent commission of a forcible felony; or (2) Unde r those circumstances permitted pursuant to s. 776.013. George Zimmerman had a "duty to retreat". 776.013 deals with a threatened person in their home; so it doesn't apply to Trayvon, since he wasn't killed in George Zimmerman's home. 776.041  Use of force by aggressor. 776.041  Use of force by aggressor.—The justification described in the preceding sections of this chapter is not available to a person who: (1) Is attempting to commit, committing, or escaping after the commission of, a forcible felony; or ***(2) I nitially provokes the use of force against himself or herself, unless:******* (a) Such force is so great that the person reasonably believes that he or she is in imminent danger of death or great bodily harm and that he or she has exhausted every reasonable means to escape such danger other than the use of force which is likely to cause death or great bodily harm to the assailant; or (b) In good faith, the person withdraws from physical contact with the assailant and indicates clearly to the assailant that he or she desires to withdraw and terminate the use of force, but the assailant continues or resumes the use of force. Justification for what George Zimmerman did doesn't seem to be provided by Florida's law, which clearly states that the aggressor(George Zimmerman)provoked any use of force against himself by Trayvon, and he did not exhaust every means of escaping the situation before resorting to deadly force. Trayvon was running for his life, he was attacked and fought back, then he was murdered. Seems pretty clear cut to me. How do people read into this that you're entitled to shoot at your discretion? And just to get it out there, being Hispanic is absolutely not synonymous with the inability to be racist, and any inference to the contrary is made with little thought and a lot of wishful thinking.  (Mar 20, 2012 | post #186)

Santorum: Single Moms Are "Breeding More Criminals"

I think if your mind somehow got melded with Rick Santorum's mind, if even for a few seconds, the nightmarish collection of thoughts that reside behind his crazy eyes would turn you into a salivating and incontinent shell, whose only form of communication from that moment on would be persistent crying that was kept muted by the sedatives used to prevent you from ripping out and eating your remaining eye.  (Mar 13, 2012 | post #209)

Soldier could face death penalty for Afghan killings

Every color, and culture, every country and every community has members with the same defect that this man has. The worst part of this tragedy is the potential it has for causing more deaths.  (Mar 13, 2012 | post #7)

'SNL' Ratings Slip Post-Lohan

Of course Lindsay had higher ratings. If Jonah Hill began behaving in a way that garnered him 24/7 free publicity on every channel, he would get the kind of numbers an appearance by Miss Lohan generates.  (Mar 13, 2012 | post #1)

Kony 2012: Campaign to arrest war crim goes viral

Because he's taking on an African warlord and it just seems better to err on the side of caution by not identifying his son so much with the effort to unseat Kony. It's arrogant and it's tempting fate IMO.  (Mar 9, 2012 | post #86)
