It's most notable application was in Seminole County where Miami-Dade County teen Trayvon Martin was shot to death during an encounter with armed neighborhood watch volunteer, George Zimmerman.</p> Wed, 14 Nov 2012 14:30:00 +0000 Rick Stone 4642 at http://blog.wlrn.org 'Stand Your Ground' Law Gets A Pass From State Task Force
