Stand Your Ground Still Under Attack

An article in the Herald Tribune speaks of the problems with the law. It’s almost like everyone is suddenly looking at self-defense cases and discovering that, shockingly, self-defense cases are all rather circumstantial, and juries can be inconsistent in how they see those circumstances as being self-defense or not.

Unfortunately for the poorly educated media, this was true before Stand your Ground laws, and it will be true after stand your ground laws. In the mean time, it looks like the task force is holding hearings. Our people would do well to mob these hearings so that the opponents of the law are not the only ones being heard.
