Stand Your Ground and The Constitution

   Posted by: chris   in Fish Talk

At this time the Supreme Court of the United States is deciding if Obama Care is constitutional, while the media is in a frenzy over the Trayvon Martin murder.

This is America, black males are killed/murdered all the time, and people who murder black males seldom face to the full extent of the Judicial System, so why is this case causing such a stir.

The problem is the State of Florida and its unbelievable Stand your Ground law.

The following paragraph is from the 14th Amendment of the Constitution of the United States

“Section 1. All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the State wherein they reside. No State shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any State deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.”

It is interesting that the statement:  “No State shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any State deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.” applies to all United States citizenry not only wealthy or white citizens.

The constitution including the 14th Amendment applies to White, Hispanic and Black people including 17 year old black males with a taste for skittles.

Stand and deliver gives a person regardless of their motives an excuse to deny another person their 14th amendment rights to life, liberty and property without due process, one merely has to feel or pretend to feel intimidated.

So as the Supreme Court of the United States debates the rights of the people of America to medical care it is ironic that no one is asking if Stand and Deliver or the right to kill without sanction is inline with the 14th Amendment of the Constitution of the United States.

Surely Trayvon Martin like any US person is/was entitled to due process, and perhaps, just perhaps his killer should also be entitled to due process.

Unfortunately the Not So Great State of Florida somehow believer that Trayvon is due nothing and that his murderer has nothing to answer.

Florida should be indicted for crimes against the Constitution and its Citizens
