All of this begs the question, does the stand your ground law even apply in the Zimmerman case? It’s pretty hard to retreat when you’re pinned to the ground. Wouldn’t it be a case of simple self-defense?
No matter. Attorney General Eric Holder has been very vocal about ending stand your ground laws anyway, claiming they “senselessly expand the concept of self-defense and sow dangerous conflict in our neighborhoods.”
Is America headed for a recession?
You know what else sows “dangerous conflicts,” Eric? Gangs. The “no snitches” mentality of inner city culture. You want to see an area that could use a little more self-defense? Head to Chicago. Tell me how the ridiculous and restrictive gun laws have worked to protect people there.
67 people were shot, eight fatally, over the July 4th weekend in Chicago. Where is the outrage, Roddy White? Where are the prayers and hastags , Katy Perry? No calls for boycotts, Stevie? No public horror at the tidal wave of shootings, drug and gang violence, and innocent deaths as a result?
Is that because you aren’t outraged or because it just isn’t expedient to be?
Oh, and one last question. How many of you in the #nojustice celebrity club have or have ever had armed body guards?
Yeah, that’s what I thought.
