Don't let Trayvon Martin's death be for nothing. No father or mother should have their son needlessly killed and taken away from them due to racial profiling or for ANY reason, only to have the court system exonerate their child's killer because of a legal technicality.

This law would make it illegal for private citizens like George Zimmerman to confront or attack crime suspects UNLESS the suspects are in the act of committing a VIOLENT crime. This law will prevent criminal defendants like George Zimmerman from using self-defense as a legal argument in criminal cases where the defendant has recklessly engaged his or her victim(s). It would also deter private citizens like George Zimmerman from unnecessarily putting themselves, criminal suspects, and potentially law enforcement officials, in harms way.

      I live in Florida. Zimmerman murdered that kid in cold blood. Everybody knows it. Not the first time some random black kid has been murdered for WWB. Things have not changed all that much in the South since the Reconstruction no matter what anybody says. Nigger kills a white guy it's murder. White guy kills a nigger it's justifible homicide. Nigger kills another nigger it's one less nigger. Racism in the American South is as strong as it ever was anybody from Mississippi or Florida or Alabama or Missouri says any different they're blind or flat-out lying. And white. Zimmerman killed that kid because he figured he could get away with it. And he did. Trayvon's mother is not the first black woman crying because her child was murdered. There are lots of them. I know more than one. And white Republicans? They belong to the "One Less Nigger" school of thought. When this "Stand Your Ground" law was passed in Florida everyone with half a brain knew who would end up getting killed. Every white guy sitting in Tallahassee has blood on his hans and most of them are proud of it.
