HeteHailm : African Americans benefit from Florida’s “Stand Your Ground” self-defense law at a rate far out of proportion to their presence in the state’s population, despite an assertion by Attorney General Eric Holder that repealing “Stand Your Ground” would help African Americans.

Black Floridians have made about a third of the state’s total “Stand Your Ground” claims in homicide cases, a rate nearly double the black percentage of Florida’s population. The majority of those claims have been successful, a success rate that exceeds that for Florida whites.

Nonetheless, prominent African Americans including Holder and “Ebony and Ivory” singer Stevie Wonder, who has vowed not to perform in the Sunshine State until the law is revoked, have made “Stand Your Ground” a central part of the Trayvon Martin controversy.

Approximately one third of Florida “Stand Your Ground” claims in fatal cases have been made by black defendants, and they have used the defense successfully 55 percent of the time, at the same rate as the population at large and at a higher rate than white defendants, according to a Daily Caller analysis of a database maintained by the Tampa Bay Times. Additionally, the majority of victims in Florida “Stand Your Ground” cases have been white.

African Americans used “Stand Your Ground” defenses at nearly twice the rate of their presence in the Florida population, which was listed at 16.6 percent in 2012.

FoodsPrer : and that it wasn't part of Zimmerman's defense?

Stand Your ground means you have no obligation to retreat before you defend yourself
Zimmerman could NOT retreat because there was someone on top of him.

geickmstam : Well before he admits to the public that he knows the meaning he's got to put on a show for the NAACP. That racist group will whine and cry with our liberal medias help until they get some attention.

Cogsweilligue : The Attorney General should also know what States' Rights are. He has no business intervening in state laws. If the Feds try to bring a civil rights case against Zimmerman they are going to be humiliated. Racism can not be proved in this case.

npletcherbrl : Joe. He does know what it means. There is no law now or on the books of
all 50 states that is called the Stand your ground law. There is no such term
legally. All criminal codes in this country are dictated to and governed by
the statutes that deal with deadly force. In Florida the Law is. Fl, C.C. 776.041

Holder is not even reviewing his own investigation arms context on the
investigation they carried out and concluded that Zimmerman was not
acting out in a manner to include any civil right violation.

Holder once again needs to resign and be removed as Obamas errand boy.

joncooperst : Why didn't Martian have the right to Stand his Ground? He was the one being followed at night in the dark. Zimmerman could of just as easily been a mugger. Martian had the right under law to Stand his Ground and confront the person following him.

Under the law Martian was the one with that right.
