    Think FL will stay as is - a little ambiguous. Zimmerman was charged because (1) he followed Martin after the cops told him to back off and (2) the social and political pressures were daunting (whether that's right or wrong is another topic). Not saying he wasn't getting his a** kicked and shot to defend himself, but there were better ways to handle it.

    "Stand your ground" sounds a little more aggressive than the phrase used elsewhere. There is no "duty to retreat" where I am. Retreating is just one step above total surrender. Its all about appearances.
