Note: due to misunderstanding I was treated as an snarkie. I simply wrote what the daughter said on the video I saw...and repeated with the arrogant term "obviously a good man" after seeing the daughter say that. I was advice to clear this up by a niceIt was early this morning when I caught this story of a slaying of yet another Black Teen in senseless shooting over loud music. It brought a troubling reminder back into my mind about a the case in which George Zimmerman, the man accused of murdering 17-year-old Trayvon Martin earlier this year strikes a similar defense.
kossack that pulled my sleeve, so to speak...Sorry.
Florida’s controversial ‘Stand Your Ground’ law is back on the national stage after the murder of yet another unarmed, black teenager.
Michael Dunn, a 45-year-old Florida resident, is invoking the controversial law after a recent confrontation turned fatal, The Orlando Sentinel reports.
According to authorities, 17-year-old Jordan Russell Davis, a black teenager, and several friends were confronted by Dunn, a white man, who pulled alongside the teens' SUV in the parking lot of a Jacksonville, Fla., gas station. Dunn asked them to turn their music down, and after an exchange of words, he fired between 8 and 9 shots at the vehicle, several of which hit Davis, causing his death.
This new case though, is not a case about a "White Hispanic" like George zimmerman`s and his defense claim to dispute racism. This one, by what I can just read and believe, but without input or judgment about racism, is really troubling for several reasons.
Here I see a white man as you can see in this video. Obviously a good man. However, if you read this article as released by the media, important issues arise over the Florida law known as "Stand Your Ground", which gives a person the right to snuff out a life of another human being.
My heart aches writing this diary because I know the heart aches that it will open in the family of the late Trayvon with this reminder. I simply think that the issue here will let
those who are gun lovers and support this type of sidewalk justice look into their own hearts. I will have no comment other than what you read here.
NOTE: I checked and did not see this information on a dairy this morning. I will put it out there for you to discuss if you wish.
