Do you know these laws exist?

July 29, 2013

After the Trayvon Martin case, the Florida version of this sort of thing became an issue, as it should have. Twenty-plus states have similar laws....

New York State in one of the worst states to live in. You cannot protect yourself from a person breaking into your house. Try and flee, hide in a bathroom, call 911. Idiotic ideas. A home is yours you should have the right to protect what is yours. So the person in unarmed. He is still in your house. He can kill you with your own belongings. Is it any wonder NYS is losing intelligent people and will take any person who wants welfare and food stamps. Just look around you.

kcw has it right. Compromise is agree with a liberal. No where do i see any lib or even judeye and marcia apologize for the duke rape, tawana bradley, riots etc, all involving democrats. In their deluded minds it is the gun lobbies fault. You just cannot reason with a liberal. they lack proper mental capacity for it. who shoots up the cities ? democrats. who commits most of the crime , democrats,judeye and marcia are clueless liberals.

Liberal definition of the art of "compromise": "I make the demands, and YOU'D better well give it up; otherwise I'll call you every name in the book!" No need for a liberal to apologize, the mere fact that they meant well is good enough. Any negative impact to society over the eventual outcomes are irrelevant. Besides, it was somebody else's fault.

Surely you jest Bulldog? Hold a liberal responsible for fanning the flames of racial bigotry? Did Al Sharpton even apologize to the four police officers involved in the Brawley case? Did Jesse Jackson apologize for calling NYC "Hymie-town"? You are delusional if you think even one of those snakes will admit to any of the mayhem they stir up with their rhetoric. Liberal definition of compromise: Agree with me 100% or you are (fill in the blank with appropriate insult to intelligent thought).

Dude, the guy was found "not guilty". And I hope Zimmerman files civil suits against all those (TV Jerks and others) who made false statements about him.

There is nothing wrong with Florida's Stand Your Ground laws. It works.

No cut and run. Just nothing more to say.

Did you bother to read the article in Tampa Bay Times?

Did you bother to look up what is and is not admission able as evidence in a trial?

Seems judeye and Marcia have done what they have done in several forums. Cut and run when the going got to tough. That or just maybe they realized how wrong they are. No that won't happen, after all they are beholden to that party line and can't stray from the leaders thinking. No independent thinking allowed in the democrat party.

hey phil, the character content of that prosecution witness in the zimmerman trial was judged. She said she could not read cursive and at times seemed incoherent.yet, she voted democratic and attended democratic run schools that turn out dysfunctional people by the boatloads. We were to find Zimmerman guilty with her as a witness ? she was a defense witness pure and simple. The prosecutors goofed that , those wonderful mob led govt workers. for this, we have seen riots and additional muggings.explain this learned liberals.

Dr. king said "men should not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character". How can you judge a man's character if not by his previous actions and words? Character is important and the only way to judge character is a man's history of behavior. Sometimes I have to wonder what ever happened to common sense.

donnar , you are confusing the libs with facts. say, did anyone see that a guy shot two people trying to rob him in Buffalo ? As of this writing the shooter will not be charged. Perhaps wall street ,judeye, made the robbers steal, or unions, climate change , bush, guantanamo,drone attacks. I am reading judeyes mind. Do you libs think we will see riots or demonstrations demanding justice for the robbers ?I mean it is a constitutional right to be robbed , to help the poor. Judeye and marcia we need you !

"Past conduct, unless it can be linked to the current crime, should NOT matter."

marcia , try and get some facs, you sound like judeye.Who is 12% of population but 50% of violent crime. Do you have any idea marcia. use your analytical skills. Why its the black race.The women stand their womb and have aborted 53 million innocent babies. death from botched or lack of abortions does not show up in leading causes of death for women. Do you actually know anything ? You libs have to explain all the race baiting, over and over we see from the liberals on this. Holder won prosecute voter intimidation by black gangs. Judeye is worried about wall street. Libs, try thinking if you can !

Marcia and judeye, the most unlearned liberals keep posting how ignorant they are. Hey libs, in Greece NY, 2009, the reverse happened. A black security shot and killed a white guy. The black man was acquitted. Judeye, did you se any mass demonstrations saying no justice no peace(no brains either ) ? Nope, you saw nothing. hey judeye, wall street has anything to do with this shooting ? are you mad ? How about green energy ?Unions will solve it like detroit eh judeye ? How about the whooping and hollering from the black community when OJ was acquitted ? Race is nothing more than a dog and pony show for the libs.

"Robert the driver may have tried to claim carjacking but that does not mean he got off all criminals try to claim it's not their fault!" no charges were pressed in this sad incident

I hope your kids are perfect because you seem to think the death penalty is appropriate for smoking pot and applying a little graffiti. Of course beating up police and your girlfriend is OK. But St George Z went to alcohol rehab (at 20 years of age) so no problem with beating up the cop. But don;'t walk down the street while black, that is unacceptable. Why are GZ's crimes no problem but Martin's worthy of death? Hypocrites.

For other reasons, this is exactly what Sheriff Gerace wants after "suggesting" that DA Foley & area judges be more lenient so we can "free up beds in the jail, thus lure federal prisoners" and receive maximum reimbursements.

Judeye's arguement is exactly why we wont see a civil charge placed against Zimmermann. All of Trayvon's past could and would be in the forefront of the event,rendering the liberal angle of racism by Zimmermann uselss.

Second of all you fail to acknowledge all the true facts in the zimmerman case. And finally he was found not guilty.

There were no convictions on Zimmerman. A speeding ticket was dropped when the cop couldn't be bothered to show up for court. He and his girlfriend filed the usual mutual restraining orders against each other. That situation apparently disappeared into nothingness. The most serious thing was the allegation of resisting arrest with battery on the officer. That was apparently dismissed with the agreement to undertake alcohol treatment. He doesn't exactly come off like some altar boy, but it neither does it mean that he's a natural born killer.
