Obama may have said that Trayvon could have been him 35 or so years ago but he alluded to a lot more than that. He’s making the case that Stand Your Ground laws shouldn’t exist because it allows people to be set free.
What many have forgotten is that minorities benefit from Stand Your Ground laws more than white people from the suburbs. This law takes away power from the criminals and allows honest citizens the rights to self defense.
The more I think about it, the more I believe the Zimmerman trial is meant to be a distraction. Not once has Obama held a press conference and confessed about everything he knows regarding Benghazi, the NSA, or the IRS scandals. But he’s out in full force making statements about a court case in Sanford, Florida.
