Stand Your Ground Blog Assignment

Stand your Ground is a type of self-defense law that gives individuals the right to use deadly force to defend themselves without any requirement to evade or retreat from a dangerous situation. I strongly oppose the expansion of Florida’s “Stand your ground” because it will most likely promote vigilantism and more volatile outbursts within the community.  In 2014, there have been recent cases that have caused various parties to call for a reform of the law. Florida lawmakers, Gov. Rick Scott, and the National Rifle Association intend to pass a bill that expands the self-defense status. “The threatened use of force” bill would “prohibit the court from imposing certain mandatory minimum sentences if the court makes specified written findings;”(Goodman, 2014).If this bill is passed the law is likely to expand immunity for violent conduct in as vague and sweeping a manner as Florida’s existing “Stand your Ground” law, and could represent the newest mechanism for encouraging even more vigilantism. Specifically the kind displayed in the Trayvon Martin, Jordan Davis, and John McNeil cases.  If more and more situations were to arise I have reasonable cause to believe that more deaths and injuries will occur. The “threatened use of force” bill just helps as an aid in giving those who shouldn’t take matters in their own hands to deal out their own form of justice regardless if the other party is innocent or not.  I would hope that more Florida residents will strive to stay informed and vote against the expansion and even advocate for the abolishment of “Stand your ground” entirely. We as citizens are only equipped to follow the law. We cannot leave the duty of caring out the law to our citizens it’s reckless and irresponsible.

I hate the way you talk to me, and the way you cut your hair. I hate the way you drive my car, I hate it when you stare. I hate your big dumb combat boots and the way you read my mind. I hate you so much it makes me sick, it even makes me rhyme. I hate the way you’re always right, I hate it when you lie. I hate it when you make me laugh, even worse when you make me cry. I hate it when you’re not around, and the fact that you didn’t call. But mostly I hate the way I don’t hate you, not even close… not even a little bit… not even at all.
