In all the blather about Zimmerman's "right" to "stand his ground," I have not heard any discussion of Trayvon Martin's parallel right to "stand his ground."
Did I miss this?
It seems obvious that Martin is covered under the same law, and had the same right to confront an assailant. (Having a right, and exercising it are different things). If he did (and he did), then any alleged assault by Martin was justified. Since there is nothing in the available record to suggest that Zimmerman was ever threatened prior to his confronting Martin, he has no legal defense under "stand your ground." If this is the case, it was simple cold-blooded murder.
