new on your forum, not new to guns culture

Trayvon Martin and the lynch mob is getting to me, even up here in Kansas.

I've been following the case since it first hit the MSM. Tonight on Bill O'Rielly had tyhe Martin lawyer on.
He should be either be arrested or disbarred, I did send an email to the Miami Herald and Sanford newspapers.

Don't know if any of them can read English, but hope springs eternal. Next I'll have to email Oprah.

This is the email I sent.

Saw your appearance on Bill O'Rielly tonight. I can't find any direct email for Fox or Bill O'Rielly, maybe you can send this to him or his research staff.

Yes, it is a shame that this case has become such a media circus with comments about fairness, the law and racial profiling. As any student of history knows, under Jim Crow, any black man or woman who killed a rapist, mugger, or burglar in self-defense would be arrested instantaneously.

As police knew, "they're all a bunch of liars."

In response to such racial profiling and arrests that forced a minority to subsidize the bail bondsman or have their car repo'd and mortgage foreclosed, the State of Florida began civil rights law revisions which are intended to protect the life blood and property of minority peoples, whether adult or minor, citizen or visiting alien. It is a real shame and should be a criminal offense for all the suffering the Martin family has been forced to suffer because of the bad faith handling by this tragic instance. Giving bad legal advice when an arrest should be made should be grounds for disbarment if not more extreme if actual physical harm comes to any innocent person of any race, color or creed.

Anyway, since your staff doesn't do research very well, in order to same a little time and maybe lives, I've researched for everybody in Florida the law itself. It isn't Castle Doctrine and it has nothing to do with stand your ground.

Title XLVI
Chapter 776
View Entire Chapter

 776.032 Immunity from criminal prosecution and civil action for justifiable use of force.�

 (1)A person who uses force as permitted in s. 776.012, s. 776.013, or s. 776.031 is justified in using such force and is immune from criminal prosecution and civil action for the use of such force, unless the person against whom force was used is a law enforcement officer, as defined in s. 943.10(14), who was acting in the performance of his or her official duties and the officer identified himself or herself in accordance with any applicable law or the person using force knew or reasonably should have known that the person was a law enforcement officer. As used in this subsection, the term �criminal prosecution� includes arresting, detaining in custody, and charging or prosecuting the defendant.

 (2)A law enforcement agency may use standard procedures for investigating the use of force as described in subsection (1), but the agency may not arrest the person for using force unless it determines that there is probable cause that the force that was used was unlawful.

 (3)The court shall award reasonable attorney�s fees, court costs, compensation for loss of income, and all expenses incurred by the defendant in defense of any civil action brought by a plaintiff if the court finds that the defendant is immune from prosecution as provided in subsection (1).

History.�s. 4, ch. 2005-27.
