The politics I love and hate, wrapped up in a conundrum.

This asshat called 911 dozens of times, always with the same story: “There have been lots of breakins in my neighborhood and my wife saw someone walking around fitting the description. It’s a black teen…” Always the same fucking story, so he’s already set up his “state of mind” to be scared of any black kid who happens to walk through his neighborhood. 

The NRA has pushed through Stand Your Ground laws in 21 states since first enacted in Florida in 2005 under Governor Jeb Bush. Self-defense homicide claims have TRIPLED in Florida since this abomination of a law passed. Just claim you were scared and acted in self-defense and it’s OK to shoot an unarmed black 17-year-old. Makes me retch.
