So, the Trayvon Martin verdict did not go the way many wanted it to go.

Outraged, many are now wanting a Department of Justice inquery and on and on and on.

The President went on camera Friday afternoon and made comments once again about him knowing what Trayvon Martin went through when it came to race relations.

He then asked that "Stand Your Ground" laws be looked at again.

Well, Texas basically has that law.

It states if someone tried to kill you or take your property you can retaliate.

Boy, what a concept.

Well, the President doesn't like these laws.

Someone did some digging and found he had no problem with it until he had a political dog in the fight.

They found back in 2004 when Barack Obama was a state senator in Illinios, he co-sponsored a bill that strengthened his state's 1961 "Stand Your Ground" law, "by shielding the person who was attacked from being sued in civil court by perpetrators or their estates when a 'Stand Your Ground' defense is used in protecting his or her person, dwelling or other property."

S.B. 2386 passed the Illinois state senate by a 56-0 vote on March 25, 2004. It sailed through the state house with only two "nay" votes. Both chambers were controlled by Democrats.

But, that was then.

That's mt point of view, what's yours?

I like the stand your ground law, If someone wnats to rob me, beat me etc, I get to to remove them from this planet if needed and only if I can win, If I am losing hte battle, cheat. The court system plays to much catch and release so we the public can remove the release part if needed. The law is what it says and should only be used as such.

Is this a surprise ? Obama just puts on the suit of the day and just as easily changes his political stance with the morning news.

I think you are mixing the two issues. The Trayvon Martin case is different from an intuder in your house. Trayvon Martin was unarmed, an intruder in your house will probably have a weapon. The President says to look at the laws. As a reminder, the President does not have the power to make laws, congress does. Stand your ground laws are there to defend person and property and it is good to review laws, such as we did with Plessy vs. Ferguson etc.....

Like always, you miss the point. If somebody is following you, cracker or not, don't jump them and start whipping their butt before you make sure they aren't carrying a gun. Case closed.

Read Massad Ayoob's take on the trial (he is a retired police captain, firearms trainer, law trainer, and lives in Florida.) It is a real eye opener as he has all the facts from the trial.

As for SYG law, we both know Obama says one thing, does the other and expects you to do as he says, not as he does.

I think OJ was guilty. I think Casey Anthony was guilty. And I think Zimmerman was guilty too. What I think is irrelevant, a jury decided the cases not me. Could we hear some real news now? We're in Texas we have the Castle Law.
The Texas law presumes that the use of force is reasonable and necessary when someone is unlawfully entering or attempting to enter your occupied home, car, or place of business. It doesn't cover you playing police. Darn those pesky facts.

I'm not falling for it. I know every time the "Yids" make a black and white issue it's either to change the national conversation like; "why am I being spied on", or to give media the explanation for why the already decided puppet candidate for office was elected. This has nothing to do with the law or race except as a tool to be used against the goyim.
