Florida's "Stand Your Ground" Law, Jeb Bush, and Getting Away With Murder

As promised, here's my second Rachel Maddow Show clip, as promised. But this one is less snarky, and far more serious. It concerns the Trayvon Martin alleged murder in Florida, and how his killer (not just alleged) is hiding behind the "Stand Your Ground" law, signed by former Governor Jeb Bush. If you've only heard a bit on this story, I encourage you to watch this.

  1. Wanna see this...but I think the link is wrong. Will check back. This is the etch a sketch clip.

  2. The Castle Doctrine made trespassing a capital offense, with homeowners as judge, jury and executioner. Florida has taken it a step further, harkening back to the days over a century ago when a black man could be lynched for walking in a white neighborhood. I suspect the Sanford police would have arrested Zimmerman if his victim had been a white middle-class kid. The law's language about "feeling threatened" is code that allows different standards for different people, since "feeling threatened" is entirely subjective.

  3. Other differences you will find with these two is in how they are packaged. When you buy cheap ray bans, you are not being led to believe that these are originals so you won’t be expecting to see these in copies of the cleaning bags and brand boxes that the fakes can be found in. Should You Buy Fakes or Replicas?When faced with the dilemma of choosing between a fake and a replica Oakley, you should first think of the reason why you are buying this pair of sunglasses in the first place. If you are buying these sunglasses because you like the style but not necessarily because you want to wear a brand name pair of sunglasses, then you are better off buying a replica since it will cost you a whole lot less than a fake and an original.
