More on SYG
Now I'm reading an article in The Atlantic that keeps talking about ways Zimmerman could be covered by SYG. I don't see it. Zimmerman was following Taylor. Without Zimmerman initiating contact, there wouldn't have been any. Even if Zimmerman is telling the truth that Taylor initiated the final fatal contact, I can see where Taylor could certainly have used a SYG defense if he'd shot Zimmerman, but not the other way around.
Am I missing something?

The only thing you're missing is that you are using objective logic and just about everyone else is using subjective logic.

I can't find the cite again, but earlier today there was a quote from the author of the FL SYG law stating that Zimmerman's actions did not fall under that law.

That is actually a better cite that I saw earlier because the one I read just quoted a couple lines from this.

Thank you.

The whole thing is infuriating!! I think at the end of this SYG will be ok but for now it isn't good. The police chief just stepped down

Looks like both of you missed the memo!

This is what you need to know:
1) This is FL's fault. FL acted alone.
2) Guns are bad ALWAYS.
3) Don't over-complicate it. No good has ever come from fancy acronym talk. See #1.
