image for Zimmerman Release Revoked Because When He Shot Martin He Wasn't 'Standing On His Own Ground'.
The gun is still smoking and will be for a long, long time.....

The judge in the Travon Martin murder case has revoked the decision on the killing that set shooter George Zimmerman free due a technicality. Zimmerman's defense had rested largely on the basis of the Florida 'Stand Your Ground' law that states that anyone whose land or home has been trespassed can use violent force to dispatch that intruder. The problem is that Zimmerman wasn't 'Standing His Ground' on his own ground. He was out on the sidewalk well away from his home when he shot Martin.

Defense lawyers are now making a counter charge that, legally, the footprint of where Zimmerman was standing when he shot Martin should be considered 'Zimmerman's Ground' thus giving him the right to shoot. Martin's lawyers in return are saying that if that is the case then the ground on which Martin was standing when confronted should also be considered 'Trayvon's Own Ground' as well. This would ad substance to Martin's side of the story and maybe send Zimmerman to prison for manslaughter after all.

The lawyers then got into a heated argument about it, which led to a fist fight. Then the lawyers for Zimmerman shot Martin's lawyers claiming they had the right since they were in the courtroom where they had won the trial, thereby making it 'Their Courtroom' whereby they had the right to shoot Martin's lawyers in self defense under the 'Stand Your Ground' law. Is that clear? I thought not.

The new lawyers for Trayvon Martin's lawyers will present a new case as soon as they are done buying their bullet proof vests at Wayne LaPierre's House of Bullets and Things That Blow Up. They will then return and claim the courtroom as theirs.

Author's side note: did anyone notice that the judge returned Zimmerman's gun after the trial? That is like saying to every Floridian "Hey, go ahead and shoot whoever you want!"
