Public has opportunity to comment on Florida’s “stand your ground” law

By

The task force set up by Governor Rick Scott to evaluate Florida’s “stand your ground” law held its first public hearing today. The law says that a person does not have to retreat in the face of a threat and can use deadly force if fearing danger of death or serious harm. Florida’s 89.1, WUFT-FM’s Stephanie Denardo spoke with Peter King, a correspondent with CBS news who was at the meeting today, about controversy over the law in the wake of Trayvon Martin’s death and what the task force discussed.
