'Stand Your Ground' Law At Center of Fla. Shooting

March 22, 2012  | 

Florida is among 21 states with a "Stand Your Ground Law," which gives people wide latitude to use deadly force rather than retreat during a fight. The self-defense law helps explain why a neighborhood watch captain has not been arrested in the shooting death of an unarmed teenager.

The Florida law lets police on the scene decide whether they believe the self-defense claim. In many cases, the officers make an arrest and leave it to the courts to work out whether the deadly force is justified. In this case, however, Sanford (Fla.) Police have said they are confident they did the right thing by not charging 28-year-old George Zimmerman, reports the Associated Press.
