I just genuinely don’t know how you can claim self-defense in a shooting after a police dispatcher tells you that no, you shouldn’t go following someone, no matter how out of place they may seem in your precious gated neighborhood.
I just don’t get it. And I don’t get how a jury can agree that it is self-defense.
And a woman in Florida was sentenced to 20 years in prison for firing WARNING SHOTS at her abusive husband – against whom she ALREADY HAD AN ORDER OF PROTECTION. Aka, a RESTRAINING ORDER. Warning shots somehow didn’t qualify as Stand Your Ground. She was black. George Zimmerman was not. Maybe if she’d just killed him, it would have been OK?
What. The. Fuck.
Guess it’s just open season in Florida these days.
This is why Florida has it’s own tag on Fark.com.
