    Jeb Bush: 'Stand Your Ground' Doesn't Apply in Trayvon Case

    Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, who signed the “stand your ground” self-defense bill into law, says it should not apply to the case of a teenager killed by a neighborhood watch volunteer.

    “This law does not apply to this particular circumstance,” Bush said after an education panel discussion at the University of Texas at Arlington,
    The Dallas Morning News
    reported. “Stand your ground means stand your ground. It doesn’t mean chase after somebody who’s turned their back.”

    Bush was asked about 17-year-old Trayvon Martin, who was chased by the volunteer and fatally shot walking home from a convenience store Feb. 26, in Sanford, Fla., an Orlando suburb.

    “Anytime an innocent life is taken it’s a tragedy,” Bush said, according to the Morning News. “You’ve got to let the process work.”

    He said "it's always good to review laws" when asked about the stand-your-ground legislation he signed into law in 2005 but said he did not think Trayvon's killer will be able to use it as a defense, the Tampa Bay Times reported.

    I agree, which is why its ludicrous that the anti gun/anti self defense whiners are adopting this case as their argument against the law

    Jeb Bush is the smarter of the two sons, and he is very correct.

    Zimmerman cannot use SYG as a defense.

    also he forgot to plant a gun in his hand ad give the cops a magic bullet theory on why the exit wound is on the front side!!!

    How many members of the jury should look like they could be Obama's child?

    Well, I do wonder if all the facts are in yet. According to the Fox affiliate in Tampa Bay, ".. one man's testimony could be key for the police.

    "The guy on the bottom who had a red sweater on was yelling to me: 'help, help…and I told him to stop and I was calling 911," he said.

    Trayvon Martin was in a hoodie; Zimmerman was in red.

    The witness only wanted to be identified as "John," and didn't want to be shown on camera. Witness: Martin attacked Zimmerman

    Meanwhile, more demonstrations and marches are being planned.

    The one question that will be asked in a court is why Zimmercan got out of his SUV in the first place.


    Unless Martin starting running into back yards I would think you could easily drive slowly behind back a few houses and keep eye on him if he remained on street and sidewalk. If we were to go by what people described as Martin being an atheletic football player and Zimmerman a pudgy overweight older man then I would think he would have a better option of keeping up with him in his vehicle.

    In retrospect am certain Zimmerman is wishing he was never so foolish to feel a need to get out of his SUV especially since the police were already enroute.
