I thought you had to lock a phone. I know the phones in my house, you pick them up and you can get in to them with no password. But people can lock them, if they chose, like if you don't want to have a pocket call or something.

I use an old rickety phone and don't play around with my family's better newer iphones.
As a note: I was on a bus trip to Florida 3 weeks ago, and found a blackberry phone someone had left in the back pocket of a seat. It was "locked" in that it required a password to get into it when I tried to go into it to call the last number dialed etc. So, my sleuthing took 90 minutes, but since the guy was smart enough to put on the display his unique name, and the company for which he worked for - I sat on the bus and googled and found the number for his corporation, did that thingy where you input their last name, and VIOLA! I called and left him a phone message from my phone that I had his phone!

I think she is arguing a reasonable person would not be in fear of their life from just a simple assault and they had to put in the "or forcible felony" for cases like kidnapping where an actual death threat was not made or a strong armed robbery.

Forcible felony is something one can prevent under this law. For instance if you go about your business and see that a forcible felony is about to be committed you can use deadly force even if you are not in danger of death/great bodily harm. You might not be in danger at all but you can still use SYG to prevent forcible felony.
But you can also use that same law to prevent death/great bodily harm to yourself.
Separate things that you can use the law for.

The SYG defense is widely misused and abused..could be this is where it stops...
After reading some of the case law on defendants that have used the SYG defense, I totally agree with you.

His sense of entitlement is pretty clear, isn't it? FCA was "frushhhh-trated too" about being in jail. I don't think George is a monster, like FCA, but they do show similar signs of being coddled from a very young age and allowed to get away with things they shouldn't get away with. Wish we knew George's High School history! I think it would be interesting!

The law says OR. It's a separate issue. One can prevent imminent commission of forcible felony. But one can also prevent death/great bodily harm.
I believe that Judges and attorneys also must use applicable case law from previous rulings in their interpretations. Do you have any case law that backs your interpretation? With all due respect there is much more to it than just reading the laws. If there weren't, we wouldn't even need the court system and lots of people going to law school could save lots of tuition.

If George was so scared... he wouldn't have gotten out of his car. He shows no signs of being scared of confronting a kid who was "checking him out", and "had something in his pocket", and appeared to be "on drugs."

Trayvon running shows someone who was "scared" and felt threatened. Backed up by the girlfriends statement.

It's all right there... in George's own words!

I totally agree with your interpretation of the SYG law. You're right, a law degree is not required. The statues are very clear. IMO

All I know is that both authors of the bill as well as the governor who signed it into law clearly states that this case doesn't fall under Stand Your Ground because Zimmerman was the pursuer. This law doesn't give anyone the right to chase another person down and murder them.

Legal msm experts have said that AC must have more than we are privy too. She did say no more documents would be leaked to the public shortly after her investigation began. There must be forensics and/or more witnesses who we are not aware of. I agree, GZ could not have been afraid of TM based on his actions. It was said recently that GZ is 185 and Trayvon was 160. Trayvon is very tall and was a skinny kid. 185 pounds on a short man is quite heavy and he didn't look to be fat, but does look to be in good shape, imo. Based on those facts, I don't think it is hard to believe that GZ could "handle" TM, he apparently didn't think it would be a problem. The witness who said GZ got up from the body indicates it was GZ who was on top, might there be other witnesses who said the same thing. Also, more than one witness stated the police changed their testimony or told them what to think. That is definitely tampering with the witnesses and AC may have gotten the true account from said witnesses. jmo.

Well, when the people who actually made the SYG law and the govenor who signed it into law believe that George Zimmerman's actions that night do NOT fall under the SYG laws... we have a problem.

Can we agree on that?

We have arguments over this law, but it was also stated in the msm interviews that if a person starts a fight, they cannot then claim syg or self defense. Maybe that is what AC is thinking.

I agree. I think when we are privy to all the documents that she has, we will see that she has plenty of evidence to convict him of the second degree murder charge. She doesn't appear to be the type of prosecutor to charge someone without having the means to back it up from what I have read about her.

I may be confused ( it certainly wouldn't be the first time and probably won't be the last ) but when AC says forcible felony, the First Aggressor is what she's talking about? GZ couldn't be the first aggressor and then turn around and say he was standing his ground? The forcible felony would have been on Trayvon's part, against GZ, and that's what gave GZ the right to stand his ground?

Forcible felony covers quite a few things;

776.08 Forcible felony.—“Forcible felony” means treason; murder; manslaughter; sexual battery; carjacking; home-invasion robbery; robbery; burglary; arson; kidnapping; aggravated assault; aggravated battery; aggravated stalking; aircraft piracy; unlawful throwing, placing, or discharging of a destructive device or bomb; and any other felony which involves the use or threat of physical force or violence against any individual.

Why do I think of the 'policeman' in Terminator (who morphs into liquid metal when he is in a pickle) when I envision GZ's pursuit of Trayvon?

IMO, he didn't look like he was 'gone' at the hearing the other day. His posture was quite erect and confident.

That still has me puzzled. I mean, clearly he isn't afraid of Trayvon since he's pursuing him. Obviously he's not concerned about LE knowing where he lives since he made a career of calling them whenever he perceived wrong doing. He seemed to be hesitant giving his name, even when asked point blank, IMO. Maybe he wanted them to think it was someone else calling this time? IDK. Just puzzling...

According to what Ms. Corey said in her interview with NG, Trayvon would have had to be in the process of committing a forcible felony against Zimmerman in which case Zimmerman could claim that he was standing his ground. Like the example cited in the interview with Ms. Corey, the woman claimed that her husband slapped her, she went for the gun, and shot him. She couldn't claim she was standing her ground because the husband was not in the act of committing a forcible felony against her.

Secondly, the stand your ground law is not going to cover Zimmerman if he was the first aggressor and we already know that is exactly what he was. He pursued Trayvon; therefore, he can't turn around and say that he murdered him because he was standing his ground.

(I myself haven't read the law nor will I and am only going by Ms. Corey's interpretation of the law as she has prosecuted many cases under the SYG law. I'm sure there are many interpretations of the laws out there and I will leave it to an attorney that I trust to make that decision).

In a previous call to SPD GZ refused to give his home address even though he was calling FROM HOME. If he's that paranoid, I don't get why he was calling the police at all.

I've called the sheriff's non-emergency number here for things like noise complaints, aggressive dogs and what I thought were gunshots and never hesitated to give my name, address, or home phone number. Other than the suspected gunshots, I waited to meet with the officers.

O/T -
The "gunshots" were a different story - they sounded as though they were in the pasture where I had a newborn foal. If it had been poachers, they could have mistaken her for a deer, so I went down into the pasture with a big flashlight, calling the mare to come to me - I figured if it were poachers, that would scare them off.

Even when the deputy got there, he thought they were gunshots, but another deputy notified him that it was actually someone setting off fireworks in the neighborhood east of my farm. The echo across the valley made the fireworks sound just like gunfire, even to the professional!
I think GZ's actions are all part of the frightened paranoid mindset that made him get a concealed carry permit and buy a gun. While I agree we all have a right to own weapons - I own a gun myself - I will never understand the need for the average citizen to carry a concealed weapon. I don't consider this to be a healthy attitude and think it is bad for the country.

If people think their community is unsafe, I think they should work to make where they live safer by addressing the factors that increase crime - lack of education, jobs, opportunities, etc. Putting more weapons on the streets is NOT making us safer!

IMO, JMO, etc.

heres my thing......Most people would agree that gz didnt act reasonably. It is not reasonable to size up a teenager as a criminal in two minutes and kill him. It is not reasonable to follow a person who might be dangerous. It is not reasonable to believe killing a person should just "blow over". gz assumptions about this child were wrong. Can we not agree on at least that?? and because he wrongly assumed someone was a criminal, he acted in an unbelievably irresponsible way. In a way that a responsible adult or gun owner shouldnt act. He should be held responsible and accountable for his actions.

I also think there may be some evidence that gz already had his gun drawn or showed his gun to gain leverage and that is a felony. If he did this he loses his syg stance because he was in the process of committing a felony himself. This is all my opinion.

(2) Initially provokes the use of force against himself or herself, unless:

(a) Such force is so great that the person reasonably believes that he or she is in imminent danger of death or great bodily harm and that he or she has exhausted every reasonable means to escape such danger other than the use of force which is likely to cause death or great bodily harm to the assailant; or
(b) In good faith, the person withdraws from physical contact with the assailant and indicates clearly to the assailant that he or she desires to withdraw and terminate the use of force, but the assailant continues or resumes the use of force.

Legal experts have brought up the First Aggressor Exception. Just finding yourself on the losing end of a fight isn't automatically SYG or self defense, if you were the First Aggressor. That's why GZ's 911 calls, his medical records, his police statement, will all be a factor in a court of law. There are defense attorneys who have been interviewed who disagree. But given that they're criminal defense attorneys, it's pretty much what I would expect them to say, so we will see if and when this goes to trial.



JMHO

In regards to (2) (a)
I think it would be difficult to get away from someone if they were on top of you,had you pinned down, pounding your head into the concrete.

And then we have this exception>>>

Quote:
BUT, even under the old law, George Zimmerman would have been entitled to stand his ground and use non-deadly force (i.e. fisticuffs) without first attempting to retreat. See Morris v. State, 715 So. 2d 1177 (Fla. 4th DCA 1998) (There is no duty to avoid danger before using non-deadly force.)

GZ if he did indeed fear for his life and felt shooting was justified,why would he feel remorse? JMO If I had to kill someone to save myself not sure I would feel remorse, I would just be glad to be alive.If TM came at him and if they did struggle over the gun if he did not shoot he might have been the one killed.JMO
