    In the end, if Zimmerman tries to use this defense in a trial, or just gets a pass, and is never indicted, there is going to be a lot of interest in this law. And the injustice that it creates.

    You are assuming it is an unjust law because you believe Zimmerman to be guilty. The fact is, he hasn't been charged... yet alone convicted.

    Thank you Old Rocks; the fact that one case was decided by a Judge, the other by police raises questions in my mind.

    So it comes down to simple self defense, not STAND YOUR GROUND; that I can accept, even if I disagree.
