Is Florida’s Stand Your Ground Law Unfair?

Over the past two years, Florida has been in the spot light for it’s shocking verdicts on “Stand Your Ground Law”. Many states have implemented this law, however Florida is the stand out state for its apparent unfair rulings, and jury verdicts on  judicial decisions.

The Michael Dunn verdict on Saturday – where the white, 47-year-old software engineer was found guilty on attempted murder charges, but not on a first-degree murder charge for killing a 17-year-old black youth, Jordan Davis of Atlanta – has once again put the issue of armed self-defense firmly in society’s crosshairs.

The hung jury on the main murder charge came seven months after George Zimmerman, a half-Caucasian, half-Hispanic neighborhood watch captain was found not guilty in a murder trial for killing Trayvon Martin, another black 17-year-old who, like, Jordan Davis, was not armed. Social media was outraged with the recent verdict, as a second African american male was not given justice.
