While at least 22 states have similar laws that say people can use force --- even deadly force --- to defend themselves from threats, Florida could soon be the only one that spells out that prosecutors have to prove defendants weren't acting in self-defense before taking someone to trial.

That's under a bill sponsored by Republican Sen. Rob Bradley, who says his legislation "isn't a novel concept."

"We have a tradition in our criminal justice system that the burden of proof is with the government from the beginning of the case to the end," he said.

"The Progressive Farmer"?

'Nuff said.

If the elements of self-defense are present as indicated by forensic evidence and/or witness testimony, the prosecution should be forced to acknowledge them a priori and the action should be dismissed with prejudice. That's what the whole SYG thing is about.

All the news media portray this as "shifting the burden", but it actually is RESTORING the burden where it belongs, and where it was always intended to be by the law.
