In the wake of the George Zimmerman verdict, Eric Holder addressed the NAACP. During his speech he denounced “stand your ground” laws.
“There has always been a legal defense for using deadly force if — and the ‘if’ is important — if no safe retreat is available. But we must examine laws that take this further by eliminating the common sense and age-old requirement that people who feel threatened have a duty to retreat, outside their home, if they can do so safely.
By allowing — and perhaps encouraging — violent situations to escalate in public — such laws undermine public safety. The list of resulting tragedies is long and, unfortunately, has victimized too many who are innocent.
“It is our collective obligation. We must ‘stand our ground’ to ensure that our laws reduce violence and take a hard look at laws that contribute to more violence than they prevent.”
Let us not delude ourselves- he means “white people have a duty to retreat.” And, of course, white Hispanics.
Never mind that at least 21 states have “Stand your ground” laws.
Never mind that “Stand your ground” laws disproportionately favor minorities.
Never mind that Illinois has a “No duty to retreat law” and Barack Obama voted for it.
What Holder says is that should you find yourself outside your home and you see assailants entering your home where your spouse and kids are, you need to retreat.
And what he really means is white people must retreat. And Roderick Scott is why.
Scott said on April 4, he was sleeping on the couch, because he and his girlfriend had a disagreement. In the early morning he awoke and heard voices. He looked out the front door to see what was going on outside.
He testified he saw three individuals who were in his driveway, saw them walk out and cross the street, then walk up to a neighbor’s vehicle, pulling on the latch and handles of the neighbor’s truck. He then went upstairs, told his girlfriend Tracy that someone was breaking into a vehicle, and told her to call 911. He grabbed his pistol, for which he has a permit, “to protect myself” then went outside.
Scott said his intent was “to stop or detain the criminals,” not to shoot anyone. He walked down the driveway and over to 39 Baneberry Way. He saw one person standing on a sidewalk, and some rummaging going on inside a vehicle, which had the dome light on.
At that point, Scott testified he pulled his handgun out of the holster, and chambered a round. “I wanted to protect myself and I intended to,” Scott said.
He walked toward the individual, who started to walk away toward Manitou Road. He did not tell that individual to stop. It’s believed that individual was Brian Hopkins.
At this point, Scott was a foot or so off the sidewalk, and he saw someone rustling around inside the vehicle at 39 Baneberry. He testified he clearly saw two individuals. He drew his pistol and assumed the a shooter’s stance. “I didn’t know what I was up against, or if they were armed,” Scott said.
He told the individuals to stop, that his girlfriend had called 911, and that he had a gun. The individuals stopped, and a few seconds passed. Scott says the teens were talking, then one of them ran around the front of the truck. The other ran down the driveway toward him, screaming. Scott warned him he had a gun, then shot him.
He assumed the boy may have been armed.
“I felt if he got to me he would try to kill me or hurt me,” Scott testified.
After the shooting, Scott said Cervini, who was running at him, kept running, passed by him, and fell face-first onto the ground.
This is an Attorney General of the United States who is occupied primarily with what he calls “my people.”
There was no Holder outburst against “Stand your ground” laws following the Cervini shooting. There was no DOJ investigation into the possible violation of Cervini’s civil rights.
There was no Holder saying the Cervini shooting was “unncessary.”
There was no Obama saying “If I had a son he would look like Christopher Cervini.” There was no Obama saying “Thirty five years ago Christopher Cervini could have been me.”
There was no sympathy for the pain white America was feeling. That is, America might have felt such pain had the Cervini death been transformed into the galactic event the Trayvon Martin shooting became.
Neither Obama nor Holder has ever had a word to spare for Antonio West or Jacob Chellew.
As I have already said, if you don’t look like you could be Obama’s son or one of Holder’s people you are screwed.
I am unable to find any reports of death threats against Roderick Scott and it’s a good thing if he’s able to live a reasonably normal life. George Zimmerman pulls a family from an overturned SUV and the family is afraid even appear in public for fear they will become the targets of hate mobs. Obama did promise to transform this country and this is what it has come down to. Floridians believe that race relations are worse since Barack Obama took office.
The picture should have read ” If I had a really bigot racist for an AG he would look like eric holder”
If you cannot see by now that Obama and holder despise white people, you never will. Both race baiters extraordinaire
I will not even consider having a duty to retreat until OBummer and Holder admit they have a duty to RESIGN.
arrested for defamation on WHITES CITIZENS,
Holder has an agenda to kill as many blacks as possible while he has the power to do so.
That must be it!
IF we subtract black murders from US stats (and illegal’s murders) the USA murder stats align with low stat country Sweden!
WHY do Holder and Obama HATE American Blacks so much????
and HOLDER HAS THE SICK GUT TO BLAME THE WHITES,
Holder is a racist just like 0-blama!!
Sooner or later the white people are going to wake up and realize what’s been going on the last 20 or 30 years isn’t about equal rights. It’s about running the white man out of this country or taking away all of his rtights.
IS THERE A WORD LIKE ” DESELECT A FAIL GOVERNMENT”
WHERE ARE THE BRAVES WHEN WE NEED THEM,
THE PENTAGONE IS FULL OF MILITARYS, WHAT IS THEIR JOB,
IN CASE THEY FORGOT, IT’S PROTECTING AMERICA AND THE PEOPLE WHO PAY THEM,
COME ON, BRING IT ON,
Wow, you really had me going there! I though Holder actually said that. Then I realize you were using typical wingnut exaggeration to lie and fear monger. How very Hannity of you!
@This one: wow i was looking for a wing nut and i found this one and then that one and another one and by golly there’s one too
Walter Hudson at PJ Media compares Obama’s view that law abiders have a duty to retreat while thugs have the right-of-way to a video game called Outlast.
Here’s the life Obama wants for the ”haves” of America:
The ”have-nots,” under Obama/Holder get free rein.
No one may stand their ground against them if they want someone else’s life or property!
What happened in the Outlast microcosm of Chicago during just the time it took to try George Zimmerman?
Chicago endured 61 murders while George Zimmerman stood trial in Florida.
52 of those 61 were black.
43 of those 61 were black males.
7 of those 61 were under 18 years of age.
And Obama wants to take this nationwide!
How exactly does one “retreat”, when one is on their back being punched out?
Just a little FYI on this discussion. The numbers may be off just a bit. In Commiefornia, Latinos/Hispanics commit over 150% more homicides than blacks. I’ve rounded it down because I can’t remember the exact number but it’s available from the Commiefornia DOJ statistics for 2012. It would stand to reason that if we reduced the Illegals significantly we’d have less homicides.
@UpChuck.Liberals: In terms of demographics CA is way lower in blacks than the USA.
Only 6.6% in CA while 13.1% in the entire country.
As to Hispanics, CA has MORE than the US percent-wise:
CA has 38.2% while the US has only 16.9% Hispanics.
Also of note is the white population comparison.
CA has 39.4% of its population white.
The USA has 63% of its population as white!
My numbers are from this month’s U.S. Census Bureau.
An interesting side point that police and law enforcement must take into account:
In CA 43.2% of households do NOT speak English.
In the USA that percent is only 20.3%.
These 2, Obama and holder, suck. Look at what they are up to now, changing school rules to protect minorities from being punished for being bad. White people should get zero tolerance while minorities should get 2,3 or 4 chances before getting in trouble. They believe minorities should get advantages to level a playing field, what bs. My relatives came here and worked shit jobs and advanced and made a better life, didn’t go sell drugs run down neighborhoods and destroy things, they built things and made them better. It’s bs that they make an excuse that black people act this way because they are forced into that lifestyle. Our country is failing under two racist idiots who go after every white group but where are they when these black gangs go haywire, oh, they justify it with another excuse. I am sorry, they suck. Now they are after Christie because they are afraid he will fix there system back to normal so they try and rack him down, people we need to change this. Tell everyone vote republican. We need to get America back.
too bad that the other BLACKS PEOPLE WHO ARE NORMAL
GET DRAWN INTO THOSE LITTLE PUNK’S ACTIVITYS
WHICH IS A START TO A FUTUR LIFE OF CRIME,
the other decent BLACKS ARE ASHAME OF THEM, AND CANNOT COME OUT PUBLICLY TO EXPOSE THEM JUST BECAUSE THAT ERIC HOLDER IS TELLING HE IS SIDING with the ones with bad behaviour which is leading them strait to hell, if not reprimend by the TEACHER,
who is there to teach the behaviour as well so to protect these little brats,
from that dark future she notice,
ERIC HOLDER, YOU PROVE YOUR IDIOTY BY GETTING INVOLVE, THEY DESERVED A GOOD SPANKING WICH THEY WOULD NEVER FORGET,
ERIC HOLDER, MIND YOUR OWN BUSINESS AND LET THE TEACHERS DO WHAT THEY KNOW BEST,
THEY ARE TO BE REWARDED, FOR DOING THE JOBS OF TEACHER AND MOTHER AND FATHER NONEXISTENT
FOR THEIR KIDS LEARNING THE BASIC RULES,
GET OUT OF THEIR WAY, YOU MAKE IT WORSE,
