Stand Your Ground- In Prison
The judge says it best.
Healey said Florida’s controversial “stand your ground” law was widely misunderstood.
“We should remember there is nothing wrong with retreating and deescalating the situation,” the judge said.
Outside court, Davis’ father, Ron Davis, said the judge sent a strong message.
“We may have in this state ‘stand your ground’ laws but that doesn’t allow you as a citizen, when you have a chance to diffuse a situation, for you to be so aggressive,” he told CNN by phone on Friday. “It’s basically saying to people, stop with the shoot first.”
