The injection of Florida’s abominable “stand your ground” law into the Corey Jones case is a dismaying turn of events in the search for justice for the slain drummer. Now, instead of a trial in April in which disgraced police officer Nouman Raja will have to defend himself that he shot the fleeing 31-year-old “without lawful justification,” in the words of the Palm Beach County State Attorney’s probable cause affidavit, there will first be a hearing in which prosecutors will have to prove that Raja wasn’t acting in self-defense.
|Talk about media bias!!
First sentence includes, "Florida’s abominable “stand your ground” law."
Having first established his bias, the author proceeds to object to a law designed to protect victims.
Unlike the author, I do not pretend to know the facts in this case, but, the author would use this case to strip ALL the citizen's of Florida of their ability to defend themselves because of the POSSIBILITY that somebody might use the law to 'get away with something".
