Letter: Leave state’s ‘Stand Your Ground’ alone
As a direct result of the rantings of race-baiting loudmouths like Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton, there will be a resurgence of racial hatred and unrest.
Those who want to overturn the decision in the George Zimmerman case made by a legally chosen jury appear to want a return to the old west and vigilante justice. Why bother with trials and juries, right? When some group or individual, on either the left or the right disagrees with the findings of the jury in any legal trial, does that mean the trial findings should be scrapped? Should we re-try the case until everyone, everywhere agrees with the verdict?
I would also strongly urge the New Hampshire Legislature to leave the “Stand Your Ground” issue alone. We don’t want our lawmakers doing a single thing with regard to citizens’ rights to defend themselves whenever they feel their lives, or those of their loved-ones, are at risk.
