Trayvon Martin´s mom: Clarify
´stand your ground´ laws

Associated Press, by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:Scottyboy, 10/29/2013 12:06:01 PM

Sybrina Fulton, the mother of Trayvon Martin, is telling a Senate panel Tuesday that states must clarify their "stand your ground" self-defense laws. The laws, adopted in some form by at least 22 states, generally cancel a person´s duty to retreat in the face of a serious physical threat. But the 2012 shooting of Fulton´s unarmed son, Trayvon Martin, 17, and the acquittal of George Zimmerman this year provided evidence that "stand your ground" laws can be confusing and applied inconsistently, she said. "By being unclear in when and how it is applied, stand your ground in its current form is far

Young Tray´s absent mother is getting used by the left almost as bad as Cindy Sheehan was during the Bush Years.
Sorry lady, but:
1). Stand your ground laws had nothing to do with you son getting himself killed and,
2). Knowing the basic premise of self defense is a rudimentary element of being a good citizen, if you still don´t understand it, blame the public schools and you own parents for dropping the ball.

Honey, it´s easy! If I feel my life is threatened, then I will defend myself, by shooting or any other means at my disposal.

As my Gunny used to say: "You can be a Marine, or a Cop. Not both!"

Trayvon Martin´s mom is skimming this to get yet more money. So far, this "absent" mother who did not give a hoot for the child she gave up at two years of age has made over a Million Dollars off the death of her son who was a thug; of course, she wants more.

Lousy reporting again by the ap. sybrina´s real objection to the law is that in Florida it shields GZ from a wrongful death lawsuit. It´s all about the money.

What makes her an authority on Stand Your Ground Law?
It had nothing to do with her thug son, was not used as a defense, so what makes her an expert?
Get OUT of the lives of the good citizens of the State of Florida.
Reminds me of the actress who went before Congress and created an Alar scare about apples..she testified because she had played a farmer in a movie !
Maybe Sybrina stayed at a Holiday Inn Express last night! Congress is disgusting, giving this leech a platform when regular citizens don´t have a voice.

This was NOT a ´stand your ground´ case.No one has to have their head smashed into the pavement and not respond. Response with a gun is OK.

Here is your clarification Mrs. Martin.
Let´s use your delinquent son as an example.

If you have a son, maybe his name is Trayvon as a random name.

If he is a fan of "Purple Lean" and is out during a rain storm getting the needed ingredients to mix up a batch.

Let´s just say in our example that he is also a fan of UFC techniques. If, in his agitated state he runs into a neighborhood watch guy just doing his volunteer job of protecting the neighborhood property.

If our "fictional" Purple Lean guy is bashing the head against the cement curb of our neighborhood watch guy, he has every reason to kill you if the opportunity comes up.

I hope this new explanation helps.

Sybrina, it´s really hard to just "retreat" when you are laying on the ground with a large strong gang banger sitting on top of you trying to beat you to death with his bare fists.

Does that clear it up for you any?

Maybe she can get on the ground and pretend to be George Zimmerman. Get a bigger, stronger person to straddle her and bang her head against the ground. "Stand your ground" means you can do what you have to to make your head stop smashing against the pavement. Got it?

We got three of them on this thread who think being pushed down and then getting your had hit on concrete is required of the self-defense basis of the Zimmerman defense.

It´s not. All you need is to be pushed hard enough, or pushed down. The perp was seen ON TOP whaling away, and I´m not sure he even needed to be doing that ~

As far as getting your head hit, anything short of a concussion ..... could be meaningful or not.

There´s a case working where a bunch of thugs simply pushed an old man down ~ I think he was 90 ~ in a robbery. He died. They are going away for a long time.

Every now and then we´ll hear of a blind person shooting a perp. They always get off.

Self defense is self defense. I don´t have to get hurt ~ just disturbed sufficiently for me to engage in it.

Has nothing to do with standing my ground.

I am sorry you lost your son, but truthfully you did not lose him in 2012. You lost him when you decided that your life was more important than your responsibility. You conceived a child with a gang member. You did not make a home for the child. You did not offer the child up for adoption in order to give him a good start in life. Rather you kept the child to generate revenue to fund your life.

´Stand your ground´ was not an issue in the case of Florida vs. Zimmerman. It was not an element of the case because Mr. Zimmerman was laying on the ground with your son astride of him inflicting multiple blows in a Mixed Martial Arts manner and method when upon spotting Mr. Zimmerman´s lawfully carried weapon he attempted to wrest the weapon from Mr. Zimmerman. At that point Mr. Zimmerman accessed the weapon and discharged it into your son, Mr. Martin.

There was no avenue of retreat for Mr. Zimmerman. Your son was within his rights to be walking on the street right up to the moment that he assaulted Mr. Zimmerman.

Finally, a little thought exercise...If your son was concerned with his personal safety on the rainy night, why was he talking to his girl friend on the phone? Why didn´t he call 911? Is it because he didn´t trust and respect the police? Did you teach him to respect and communicate with law enforcement? Or did you teach him to distrust law enforcement, a pathology that ultimately lead to a string of bad decisions which ultimately cost him his life.

#5, and others - the defense did not assert stand your ground - instead, they used the traditional self defense justification.
Since stand your ground was not used, Zimmerman is subject to a civil lawsuit, and I expect this famewh*re, Saint Trayvon´s biological mother, to pursue a case.

The confusion here is caused by the judge´s instructions to the jury, where in florida, boilerplate language includes the three words in question.
Durbin is just trying to divert attention from the Kenyan trainwreck.

The queen of the lo-fos wants it in ebonics?

Someone needs to tell her, in no uncertain terms (words of one syllable?) that Stand Your Ground had NOTHING to do with her son´s death. He brought it on himself by stupidly attacking and physically subduing a smaller man who happened to have an equalizer. Had it been SYG, Zimmerman could have chosen to run for it or stand his ground and deal with her son. Her son took away Zimmerman´s choice by sitting on him and pinning him on the ground.

Self defense. Not Stand Your Ground.

They didn´t invoke it at the trial, #25, but they still can in a Civil suit. One of Zimmerman´s lawyers said if the "parents" tried to sue Zimmerman they would respond by moving for a SYG hearing...at which his acquittal would be relevant.

Stand your ground is a state law and not a federal law, but don´t let that stop you for your umpteenth time of fame.

What mother rushes out and trademarks her son´s name ? Where is your guilt for not being able to handle him and sent him to live and die with his father to avoid punishment in South Florida for the crimes the little thug committed ?

The President is no economic illiterate, despite what conservatives think. He understands basic macroeconomics just fine, thank you – but with a twist. Mainstream Democrats worship at the altar of the New Deal. It’s an article of faith that massive government spending pulled America out of the Great Depression. (With all respect to Paul Krugman, the truth is more complicated, but that’s not within the scope of this article.)The president’s view of spending, deficits and debt is not merely Keynesian theory run amok. Its origins and objectives are far more terrifying. Where the traditional Democratic playbook for economic downturns was provided

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers.

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances. Unfortunately, reality doesn’t work this way. If only it did—we could rebel for paying stupid taxes, refuse to

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E.

Democratic Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren wrote in her forthcoming book that she was “hurt” and “angry” by 2012 reporting on her fraudulent claim to Native American heritage. “What really threw me, though, were the constant attacks from the other side,” Warren wrote in her book “A Fighting Chance.” “I would almost persuade myself that I was starting to get the hang of full-throttle campaigning and then — bam! Out of left field, the state Republican Party, or the Brown campaign, or some blogger, would launch a rocket at me,” Warren wrote, adding, ”I was stunned by the attacks.” This reporter (blogger?) reported extensively

Less than 16 hours after Chelsea Clinton announced she was pregnant, a lot of major news outlets started staring into the crystal ball of Chelsea’s womb, wondering what this currently floating zygotic multicellular being meant for the prospects of Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign, which is also a floating, zygotic, multicellular being.
