Stand Your Ground
what's the problem wu? bored?
A thread gets written by someone interested in something. People respond when interested and having something to say. Threads grow and/or die due to membership contributions or lack thereof. I sincerely doubt if anyone cares that you don't. Given the 33 pages of this thread to date, I will go out on a limb and suggest that some members do have interest in this thread.
As far as I am concerned, this one case raises a host of legitimate questions about our legal system of justice, ranging from rights to defend home, family and community on one hand to how the courts treat such encounters and their participants on the other.
BTW, I am absolutely appalled by the judgement that Zimmerman should be expected to spend over 6 months in jail for a crime he will most likely be acquited of at his eventual, long term delayed trial. Justice should be swift IMHO. "Justice delayed is justice denied." And in regard to bonds, I feel that the state should have to post bond to compensate Zimmerman for lost time and wages should he win at trial. We simply can't go around incarcerating people for long periods (just because we think they might have commited a crime) without having to pay some form of compensation to the ones deemed innocent by fair trial.
