    I do hope that the Stand Your Ground Law is closely examined as a result of this trial. I’ve been reading lots of news stories about how it is inequitably enforced, and any law that can’t be enforced uniformly across a state should be repealed. Laws aren’t meant to apply to some but not to others.

    The part about this trial that I worry about is when the defense will undoubtedly drag Trayvon’s character through the mud. He was a kid. Kids all make bad choices–whether they are rich, white suburbanites or middle class urban black youth. It doesn’t matter–teenagers are teenagers. But none of them, includingTrayvon, deserve to die for making some typical teen choices. He did not deserve to be targeted. The defense will undoubtedly try to make it look like he “had it coming” which is very very maddening/saddening.

      Oh that’s my worry too Jen! I mean, oh, yeah, a teenage boy was smoking pot and acting like a jerk so he deserved to die? That’s just infuriating!
