    Interesting.  I do not know the wording of the FL. law, but I assume you are quoting it correctly.

    I am interested in knowing how the wording of the FL SYG law applies in the case of George Zimmerman, and in the case of Marissa Alexander.  George Zimmerman was of course found not guilty in the shooting death of Trayvon Martin.  Marissa Alexander was found guilty of assault with a deadly weapon after shooting at her husband who was physically attacking her

    Can you share with us your thoughts on how the Fl law applies in these two cases?  Is it the application of that laws that is false?
