“Stand Your Ground laws ensure society is safer, if I’m allowed to shoot anyone who threatens me.”
That’s why a former police officer shot an innocent black man out for a jog, & why prosecutors declined to charge them.
It’s a classic situation where everyone thinks they’re the “good guy w/ a gun”.
In states that have enacted SYG laws, violence has escalated sharply.....
79% of cases the assailant easily could have fled.
68% the victim was unarmed!
This allows systemic racism to LEGALLY play out in a fatal & tragic way....
That is insane!
