‘Why?’ Mother of Trayvon Martin to testify at Senate ‘Stand Your Ground’ hearing
Trayvon Martin's mother to testify at Senate hearing next week on Stand Your Ground laws

Before his trial began, George Zimmerman waived his right to a “stand your ground” immunity hearing. Eventually, Zimmerman’s acquittal was based on pure self-defense, which is why many are having trouble figuring out why the mother of Trayvon Martin has been asked to testify before the Senate at a hearing examining “Stand Your Ground” laws:
@jamiedupree What does she have to do with stand your ground? That defense was NOT used in Zimmerman trial!

@jamiedupree Stand Your Ground was never a factor in her sons case. It was Self Defense. Two very different things.

A waste of time? Wasting time is one of the things the Senate does best. Right behind wasting money.
