There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old's life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.... John Rogers
Good news tho for all those on the left.....due to the 96Billion Pension problem. Chicago and Illinois will raise taxes again. Which they just got done doing. Oh those Old promises, huh. Wherein they will say it will be on the Wealthy. But you know the real deal and who it is going to land on.
But that's okay they have time today to take off and hold a rally for Zimmermann to be tried for Civil Rights abuse.
What is wrong with you?If George Zimmerman was not engaged in an unlawful activity and was attacked in any place where he had a right to be, he had no duty to retreat and had the right to stand his ground and meet force with force, including deadly force if he reasonably believed that it was necessary to do so to prevent death or great bodily harm to himself or another or to prevent the commission of a forcible felony.
Perhaps Haymarket, who Liked your post, would like to step in and explain. Haymarket? How did the above jury instruction relate to Zimmerman's actions that night?
Thank you, Quazi!
It is impossible for you to say that Stand Your Ground did not apply in this case. The instant it was mentioned it came into play and effected the outcome. The defense chose not to use it outright but it became part of the trial when it was mentioned by the Judge in her instructions.
