This is a very thought provoking piece from Salon:
Specifically, it discusses how the stand your ground law places the burden of proof on the prosecutor to prove what the defendant was feeling/thinking.
"Because the “stand your ground” law creates an affirmative defense for criminal defendants, the prosecution had to prove beyond a reasonable doubt that Dunn’s claim that he had a reasonable fear he was about to suffer great bodily harm was false."
It begs the questions, if a person approaches a guy in a parking lot, starts an argument and then feel threatened, in Florida, he is legally allowed to gun him down.
Is this a law we want in Ohio?
