But in 1881 in Tombstone it was illegal to carry guns in town. They had more restrictive gun control laws than Florida has today.

What I have learned so far:

Mobs should get their say over courts regardless of laws

Anyone under the age of 18 is a child and innocent

You should always have an obligation to flee from an attacker no matter what the circumstances

A persons race precludes any responsibility because, well because its unfair

Hispanics are white under certain circumstances

If you are already a felon, and you get in a argument with your husband, you should have the right to leave the house retrieve your gun ( which your not allowed to own ) from your car, come inside and fire at him, and then not be held to law about gun crimes because your not white, and it was clearly self defense, AND you should be really upset with the mandatory sentence, even though you were offered a plea.

That's not exactly what happened. Here is a link to the official report.

She went to her ex's house. Her ex did make a threatening statement. She left the house, got a gun from the car, came back to the house and shot at him while he had his hands up, surrendering and begging her not to shoot. There were two eyewitnesses (her stepsons). So no, maybe she doesn't deserve twenty years for not killing anyone, but neither is she an innocent woman who was failed by a hypocritical system for heroically fending off an unprovoked attack by an abusive man. This is more about minimum sentencing laws than about stand your ground laws.

This isn't to say that George Zimmerman doesn't have even less justification than Alexander. It's to say that Alexander doesn't fit the narrative that's being built around her.

@10 - Here's what I've learned so far:

Lawmakers have created unsafe laws. Many people are able to identify this, and express dismay at said laws.

Minors' lives can be used to create probable cause for their murders, even though the murderer would have no way of knowing anything about them.

I have the right (in Florida) to stalk and confront anyone I perceive to be dangerous and then shoot them when they return my aggression.

I have no legal obligation to follow orders from law-enforcement and have every right to create dangerous situations and not face any consequences for my actions.

Race is used to determine how much someone deserved the violence done to them.

Americans are confused about the differences between the social constructs of race and ethnicity. Also, only white people get to be racist.

Shooting a person through the heart deserves less time (read: no time) than shooting no one.

The real problem is all Stand Your Ground laws. Two men meet in a field. One dies; one walks away. With no witnesses, by law, the survivor should always be innocent, if there was evidence of any sort of struggle. That's outrageous.

Florida is a corrupt state full of corrupt politicians and real estate opportunists. Getting people to move there is nothing but a get-rich-quick scheme for developers. It's populated by below-average people with below-average educations and old people who go there to avoid taxes in their retirement. It's uninhabitable without air conditioning and a car, and regularly ripped apart by hurricanes. Other states have a sense of civic pride. Not Florida. It's all gated communities, us v. them, and individual privilege.

I have friends and family there, or I'd wish the whole thing swept clean by a Cat-5 storm. Umm... no I wouldn't. That would just be fresh opportunity for the crooked pols and developers to resell the whole thing again.

Oh, hell... Trying to elaborate on Fnarf's comment is a waste of time. He encapsulated it in a nutshell. The place is shit.

@10 If you pit "duty to retreat" vs. "stand your ground", I will pick "duty to retreat" every time. It may not apply perfectly to every circumstance, but "stand your ground" is nothing more than a free license to commit consequence-free murder under a flimsy pretense. I believe those laws should be repealed.

@3, better tell your thug friends that the law is the same in Washington State. In fact, if Zimmerman had been prosecuted here, the state would be on the hook for his legal bills.

Worse than that... you can shoot them if you simply FEEL threatened.

The only justification for murder in Florida is that you feared for your life. Period. That alone gives you legal justification to kill.

Just make sure you kill the person(s). You don't want the jury to hear anyone's opinion but your own.

Zimmerman wanted to play cop. Martin wanted to play thug. Predictable results resulted.

The difference, as I see it, is that Zimmerman was the aggressor and Martin a minor. I'm sure that when Zimmerman's "tough-guy" fantasy turned into his ass getting beat, he was scared shitless. That Florida law backs the idiot who picks a fight with a kid and loses and kills is disgusting.

I hope that Zimmerman has a very long life wherein employers decline to hire him due to his demonstrably poor judgement and he will always always always be looking over his shoulder in fear of receiving what he dished out.

lolo @34, I wasn't saying that Martin provoked Zimmerman [clearly that was a one sided thing], but I think it is fair to say that Martin had bought into the kind of "gangsta" BS that is a mainstay of a lot of teenage boy "culture" [evidenced by texts that were not allowed as evidence].

The result being that when Zimmerman wanted to go play Dirty Harry, Martin was ready to swing back. I'm not saying he shouldn't have--I don't know the datails--but I think there was some conflict escalation.

In the end I think it is literally criminal that Zimmerman reached adulthood without growing up, and that Martin wont get the chance.

Not guilty is not the same as innocent. The burden of proof is on the prosecution--the defense has no obligation to prove innocence.

A precise interpretation of what constitutes "reasonable doubt" is impossible--the phrase is deliberately and inherently imprecise.

People are free to agree or disagree with any jury's verdict (or any election's result).

Democracy sucks. All of the alternatives--particularly 'honor' cultures which equate revenge with justice--are worse.

@37 Ophian, that's like saying that a girl deserves to be assaulted because she's wearing sexually provocative clothing. Trayvon Martin is allowed to wear a hoodie and walk with swagger when he goes to get his Skittles and iced tea!

What I want to know is how Zimmerman got a license to carry a gun without learning to do what the police tell him to. If it had been Martin who'd killed Zimmerman, he'd have been in maximum security months ago.

"People in Florida like their guns". We like them here in Maine, too (believe me!), but those with concealed weapons permits were the first to speak out against George Zimmerman and the most disgusted by the assertion that his actions were acceptable. As someone who has actually had to use a gun in self-defense during a home invasion (and by "use", I mean I pointed it at the man who broke in and told him to leave) it makes me sick that George Zimmerman has become some sort of poster boy for gun rights.

Zimmerman could have decided to follow Martin for racist reasons, and/or because Martin was wearing a hoodie. Granted, those are stupid, wrong-headed reasons to follow someone, but it was legal. If Martin attacked Zimmerman just because Zimmerman was following him, that was illegal. If Martin had Zimmerman down on the ground, punching him in the face, and banging Zimmerman's head on the ground, then Zimmerman had a right to defend himself.

What would you do if were pinned on the ground, being mercilessly beaten, and had a gun?

27, WA state does not have the same SYG law as FL.

I'm curious why you say Martin "deserved" being murdered. What did he do to justify that sentence? He was stalked by an overly aggressive man who did not identify himself, and they got into an altercation that was completely instigated by Zimmerman. And even if Martin has instigated the confrontation, in America we don't hand out death sentences on assault, aggravated or otherwise. Your sense of justice is based on Bronze Age morality.

DRF @41, "Ophian, that's like saying that a girl deserves to be assaulted because she's wearing sexually provocative clothing."

No, not really like that. I think if you look again you will see that I didn't say that Martin "deserved" to be shot for dressing black. You will see that I said that Zimmerman was a criminal idiot, Martin the victim, and the legality of the thing disgusting.

Nevertheless, the fact is that Martin's reaction to Zimmerman [you will--if you look closely--see that I do not presume to say what Martin should have done] contributed to escalating the encounter, and ultimately gave Zimmerman legal cover. To be clear: I think that is bad. Okay?

So really what I am saying is much more akin to wishing a woman had run away at the first sign of danger [assuming she could] rather than misplace her trust in that 5 minute self-defense clip she saw on Youtube.

What would you do if were pinned on the ground, being mercilessly beaten, and had a gun?


Mercilessly? Yeah. That's not a loaded term or anything. Can I do that?

Okay. If I was a wanna-be scum bag who was stalking a kid because I was emotionally disturbed and he defended himself and gave me the righteous beat-down I deserved? Yeah. In a panic I'd shoot. Sure. And I should go to jail for it.

You're not the only one who gets to spin scenarios. Here's one:

What would you do if, say, your kid sister was stalked by a larger stranger at night in a deserted neighborhood? After yelling at her stalker she finally decided to turn the tables and defend herself with pepper spray. And she was then shot dead by her stalker. Would you view that event in such binary terms?

Zimmerman outweighed Martin by 30lbs. Zimmerman had a gun. Zimmerman was an adult not a minor. Zimmerman stalked Martin at night without identifying himself and against the instructions of LEO. Zimmermann had a violent criminal history.

If he was stalking your kid sister or wife or mother what the fuck would you think then?

Of course, the usual Seattle twits like you don't like to think it through, do you?

@54, SYG was carefully described in the jury instructions.

@57, The police told him to stay in his car and not get out and follow him. He was well-known to them, as he sat around and reported the presence of dozens of young black men, every time he saw one, over several years of playing crimebuster. He would have been told to stay in his car and let the police handle it by Neighborhood Watch if he had actually been a member of that organization, which he wasn't. Their rules prohibit carrying a weapon and prohibit following "suspects".
Yet, Tutko [Director of Neighborhood Watch for the National Sheriffs’ Association] believes that if Zimmerman had tried to join or start a registered group, he would have been stopped. The fact that Zimmerman was known to have made over 40 calls to police to report suspicious activities in recent months would have raised suspicions of him. “If the police were called that many times, you look at what the end game was,” he said. “Was there anything found? If nothing was found, that person needs to be counseled, or reeducated, or otherwise told you are not going to be allowed on the Neighborhood Watch.”

But you just carry on making Zimmerman your big hero, your right-wing poster boy, your NRA standard bearer. It just makes you look dim and repulsive.

@74, the fact is there was no warning or instructions. The police in that city carefully avoid telling people what to do, for liability reasons. But facts don't count with you, because you've made up your mind.

With the exception of Rob In Baltimore, this unfortunate case has made all of Slog a bit dumber.

Now if you want a real trend piece, note the last two famous Florida trials that ended in acquittal - Casey Anthony and Zimmerman. I know you legal begals will claim "reasonable doubt" is hard to overcome but I like to cling to my 'isms. So perhaps all those old retirees from Florida just hate young people and side with the older defendant? Down with ageism!

@17 Thanks for putting that better than I could. Truly sad the way our laws work sometimes.

@65,
There's a whole world out there beyond your mom's basement. You should check it out sometime.

@Urethra Forked Tongue (or the other way around), you should check out a new idea sometime. Or maybe not. The shock would be too great for your delicate system to bear.

good that you don't live here. I hope that doesn't change. But I do have to wonder why your life sucks so much that you feel driven to be a regular commenter to a local blog in a city where you don't even live.


I have to wonder why your life sucks so much that even after being banned several times for being even more aggressively idiotic and violent than our other resident trolls who have managed to continue posting for years now without a ban you feel driven to continue to create new accounts and be a regular commenter on a local blog in a city where everyone thinks you're a worthless shitstain.

@83, do you have the vapors again?

What are the vapors?

@85: The vapors are shortness of breath and pain from one's corset being laced too tightly. Why the Reliably Vile(tm) Unbrainwashed/Noicons fantasizes about you in Victorian undergarments is a bit of a mystery. Best not encourage him or he'll have another one of his spells.
