The clearest explanation of the law in regards to self-defense and how it relates to the George Zimmerman trial that I’ve seen.
This post isn’t really about the Zimmerman case, though I’ll touch on how use of force laws actually work relating to that case, but it is a result of the ignoramuses who know jack about how self-defense laws work who are currently talking about it and pissing me off. Included in that list is the President of the United States.
On Friday, Barack Obama said the following during a press conference. Our illustrious leader is in italics. My response is in bold.
You know, when Trayvon Martin was first shot I said that this could have been my son.
Yes. We appreciate the leader of the free world chiming in on local crime issues, especially before any facts are known.
Another way of saying that is Trayvon Martin could have been me 35 years ago.
Where you in the habit of committing battery against people 35 years ago?
