Stand Your Ground background

“Stand your ground” laws are relatively new, with Florida enacting the nation’s first in 2005. The statutes apply a novel interpretation of the centuries-old “Castle Doctrine” — which holds that a person may use lethal force to protect their “castle,” or home — to public spaces. The spread of the laws has had deadly consequences. According to research summarized by the RAND Corporation, Florida saw a 32 percent increase in firearm homicides after “stand your ground” laws were enacted there." The Trace

“Othmane Dghoughi said one investigator referenced a “misunderstanding” but added that he doesn’t understand how self-defense might play a role in the case, pointing out that his brother was shot through a closed car window. The murder seems quite suspicious, and it seems that it’s another example of ‘stand your ground’ laws being used to kill another person of color,” Faizan Syed, executive director of the Council on American-Islamic Relations in Dallas–Fort Worth, told BuzzFeed News. “He never got out of his car, he never went to the home, and he may have never rolled down his windows. If that’s the case, this individual came out and killed this young man.” BuzzFeed News
