    "Stand Your Ground was not used in this case."

    It's kind of like saying that "race wasn't an issue in this case." (which the jury apparently believes).

    SYG fundamentally altered Florida law. The fact that it wasn't explicitly mentioned during the trial is irrelevant. SYG was embedded in the law that was read to the jury.
