Florida’s ‘Stand-Your-Ground’ law to get more scrutiny early next year

Reblogged from The Secular Jurist:

Florida’s Stand-Your-Ground law has come under intense scrutiny since the acquittal of George Zimmerman in the shooting death of Trayvon Martin.  Early next year, it will likely receive more attention during the murder trial of Michael David Dunn who fired shots into another vehicle last year after a dispute over the playing of loud music at a Jacksonville, Florida gas station.  One of the occupants, 17-year-old Jordan Davis, was hit and killed.
