    Default Stand your ground FL supreme court ruling

    I'm disappointed in the ruling…as I understand it.
    On a Fox news scroll they said that the legislature overstepped it's grounds in passing the "Stand your Ground" law! They said that was the Supreme courts job!!!!!
    I thought that the Supreme court's job was to interpret laws…….NOT MAKE THEM! What the HE$$ is going on!!

    The issue at hand is who has the burden of proof when someone who has killed someone else asserts "stand your ground" as a defense. Does the state have to prove you weren't standing your ground or do you have to prove you were?

    Judge doesn't know about the "innocent until proven guilty" part of our justice system? I do believe that nimrod overstepped his bounds!

    Just an FYI, nimrod, though used as a derogatory term, is actually a compliment for a person who hunts. But I agree with your statement!

    Actually I was thinking nitwit, but my fingers typed the other.

    In most states SYG is considered an "affirmative defense".
