Trial Brings New Scrutiny of Stand Your Ground Law

February 07, 2014  | 

Nearly seven months after a jury acquitted George Zimmerman, whose shooting of an unarmed black teenager made him synonymous with Florida’s so-called Stand Your Ground law, the state’s latest drama involving a fatal burst of gunfire and a claim of self-defense began to play out Thursday in a Florida courtroom, reports the N.Y. Times.

And while race is woven into the background of the first-degree murder trial of Michael D. Dunn, 47, a white software developer who said he killed Jordan Davis, a black teenager, in a November 2012 confrontation about loud music, the trial appears likely to focus less on race and more on the mechanics of Florida’s self-defense laws and how juries apply them.

You can't trust the NY Times. The Globalist/Marxists in the Media want to disarm the USA. So the UN can take over the USA. The Stand Your Ground Law isn't at fault. It's a God given right to protect yourself & family & friends. The TRUTH gets distorted. Thugs become Saints, and people doing the right thing are Demons to the media. If everyone was disarmed, it would be Mass Genocide like parts of Africa. We are Serfs to the New World Order. Once they have a Monopoly of Force. The killing fields like Pol Pot occur! Tyrants aren't happy with the power they have. They'll never be happy! It doesn't matter if people like Bryan Terry die or innocent Mexican citizens. It's all to achieve the goal to depopulate the USA, and create a Super Class of Elites who are like the Plantation Owners of the Old South or the age of the Monarchy in England during the middle ages! It will become the first DARK AGE of the USA!
