Area leaders tapped for governor’s taskforce to study Florida’s “stand your ground” law
In light of the Trayvon Martin case, Florida’s “stand your ground” law has been called into question, leading the Florida government to convene a special task force to review the law. Among those selected are Ocala Republican State Representative and author of the Law, Dennis Baxley, as well as Public Defender for the 8th judicial circuit Stacy Scott. Florida’s 89.1, WUFT-FM’s Chip Skambis spoke with Stacy Scott about what we can expect from the task force and how she envisions her role on it.
