No, Not “Stand Your Ground”

Idiot reporters. If it’s Florida, and it was a defensive shooting, it must be “Stand Your Ground,” right?


Orlando woman shoots stranger who entered her home; experts say incident may be justified under Stand Your Ground law
Morrison told Torres to get out of her house before hitting him with a broom. When he refused to leave, that was when she grabbed her gun.

Experts said this shooting may be justified under Florida’s Stand Your Ground law.

7 NEWS WSVN needs better “experts.”

Florida’s “Stand Your Ground” law is 776.012. That’s all well and good, but this wasn’t out in public. This was in the woman’s home; “Castle Doctrine” applies.

776.013 Home protection; use or threatened use of deadly force; presumption of fear of death or great bodily harm.

Legal citations matter.
