Just a little food for thought, which I'm pulling out of a comment I made on another diary.

Many red states have passed anti-Sharia Law legislation because of fear that some foreign and possibly harsher law/justice would imposed on the citizens of the US. Never mind that it can't because of the Constitution and that those wanting harsh Biblical law imposed are extremest Christians (Dominionists) in the US, who already have a plan to do away with the US Constitution if they get into power and impose Biblical Law (which it currently couldn't because of the Constitution).  

If we as a society allow extrajudicial punishment/capital punishment in the form of "Stand Your Ground" laws for crimes such as stealing,  then our penalty for crimes, such as stealing is by default harsher than the penalty for stealing under Sharia law.

As said by many before, "Stand Your Ground" laws make us more violent.  For the one left standing, tells the tale of what happened.

And it may not be the truth, but a self serving pack of lies.  But if you can get away with it, because apparently claiming "Stand Your Ground" means that there will be no investigation (especially if you are white killing a non-white), why not!

It's a white "get out of jail free" card with black lettering.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
