I caught the end of your show

I caught the end of your show where Mumia Abu-Jamal mentioned Trayvon Martin and his belief that George Zimmerman will not stand trail. In following the news of the case I've come to the conclusion that self defense is a retained right. As such laws cannot deny or disparage the right to defend one's self. I think that Trayvon Martin's right to stand his ground and defend himself against an unknown assailant was striped away by this law. This is the problem with this law. It disparages Trayvon Martin's right to attack George Zimmerman in self defense. Another problem is that government has the power of determination. This law appears to strip away the state's power to make a determination as to self defense or murder.
