    People often go free under "stand your ground" in cases that seem to make a mockery of what lawmakers intended. One man killed two unarmed people and walked out of jail. Another shot a man as he lay on the ground. Others went free after shooting their victims in the back. In nearly a third of the cases the Times analyzed, defendants initiated the fight, shot an unarmed person or pursued their victim — and still went free.
    The new law only requires law enforcement and the justice system to ask three questions in self-defense cases: Did the defendant have the right to be there? Was he engaged in a lawful activity? Could he reasonably have been in fear of death or great bodily harm?
    they make it sound so easy to get off

    Not a very level article. How about being upset at the application of the law, not the law itself. If the law is being misapplied, why not a single interview of a DA or judge? I found this article substandard. It appears the writers are more concerned with 'stirring the pot' than a true discussion on SYG law.
