Bill Clinton Blasts Stand Ground Law

Former President Bill Clinton blasted the infamous Stand Your Ground law as ill conceived and playing a role in the death of people. Florida prosecutors are now facing numerous claims by those who murder that their victim threatened them. As Bill Clinton noted, an individual like George Zimmerman was on a neighborhood watch without adequate police training. The bottom line says  Clinton is “whatever the facts are–all those trying to jump on him (Trayvon Martin) and talking about some mistake he made in life–that’s irrelevant because (of an) unarmed person who was killed in the streets by a gun.”

Former Florida Governor Jeb Bush who signed into law the Stand Your Ground  idea, said the law does not apply to Zimmerman because he disobeyed police instructions to remain in his car.

Now, is the president ready to blast the law?
