Somehow the mother who banned her son from her home, after the Miami high school suspended him for god knows what, has some credibility concerning the republican written law known as "Stand Your Ground"

Now she has the audacity to blame Florida "Stand Your Ground " laws for her criminal sons death ! When SYG was never invoked!
George Zimmerman was found not guilty based on self defense !

John Lott, president of the Crime Prevention Research Center, said the majority of people that invoke stand your ground laws in court have been of the same race as the victim.

He rebutted Sullivan’s claim by indicating that blacks benefit most from these laws.

“In Florida, blacks make up about 16 percent of the population, but they account for 31 percent of the state’s defendants invoking stand your ground laws,” he said.

Good info right there! Dems will continue to try to get SYG laws repealed though. :(

They seem to be more involved with defending indirect criminal rights then they are in serving the American populace.

The mother simply looking for for something to blame for her son death and in denial that she was in some extent responsible for her son tragedy.

It was voted down in committee 11-2. The two votes supporting repeal of SYG were both democrats. There was a pretty good article about the hearing in the Tallahassee paper. I don't have the link but you can do a search for it at tallahassee.com.
