  •  Not just the Zimmerman case (0+ / 0-)

    there was another shooting in November right here in Jacksonville: Shooting in Florida over loud music compared to Trayvon Martin case

    Michael Dunn fired into a SUV  in which several teens, including 17-year-old Jordan Davis were sitting at a convenience store gas station.  Dunn and Davis argued over the loud music from the SUV and Dunn fired into the car, killing Davis. Dunn left the scene and was arrested the next day claiming he thought there were guns in the vehicle.  The police searched the vehicle that night and found none.  

    I don't know what is behind the bill filed by Rep Williams on Wednesday.  It could be a host of things from Zimmerman to Dunn to Newtown.  Maybe all.

    There is inconsistent and unequal treatment of the filing of charges across the state as well as wildly differing interpretations from law enforcement, to prosecutors to judges.

    As I see it, it is simply reverting back to basic self defense and does not remove a citizen's right to protect themselves if they feel their life is in danger.

    As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words, but to live by them. John F. Kennedy
