I don't mind story -- Zimmerman still ongoing.
A lot of -- there's been a lot of talk in certain circles of bad.
The way to fight the stand your ground rules being perhaps people putting pressure on flora there itself perhaps some of these celebrities.
Who've spoken -- boycotting Florida.
I mean I did legally speaking they can do whatever -- -- I guess slow yes they can I mean if you want when when Arizona.
Establish its rather restrictive immigration law about half of which was knocked out by the Supreme Court.
Arizona was the recipient of major boycotts these were.
Organizations that it planned to hold conventions and conferences in the Scottsdale Phoenix area that canceled them.
Now that didn't effect -- the politics and and barely affected the economics of the area so these boycotts traditionally don't work.
Because they usually require.
Organization and and numbers that you can actually feel the impact.
Of the withdrawal of business right but in terms -- refusing to do business with people far absolutely and you know you could yourself.
Choose to fight great fruits that are only grown in California rather than Florida and have two million people in New York did guys.
As you were doing then there might be some impact -- are you free to do so.
Absolutely you are free to choose with whom to -- you -- free.
Not to deal with someone because of the state from which they come even though they obviously had nothing to do with the trade -- -- in that case and.
That need to do the businesses in Florida have any comeback at -- if somebody of great renowned.
Publicly call -- -- people not to spend money in Florida or in anyway to those businesses have any legal come back on that -- on our.
The person -- -- yes and no they don't know until I mean they can engage PR.
Services to -- attempt to tarnish this person of renowned.
Or two advanced leave -- the worthiness of their products Florida -- -- better than California aren't isn't it crazy to -- the -- in California weren't.
That's slick version of that pedestrian argument.
But but no they they can't sue -- fill in the blank celebrity.
Who says don't go to Florida because that's the type.
That's absolutely protected and look if if it if the person if this celebrity.
We're in a competing business.
And was using political words to enhances business and harm his competitors.
There might be a course of action you know when the celebrity is expressing just the political opinion for no financial gain there is no redress.
Against that person.
Hard frankly to see.
A lot of those celebrities giving up there up condos in -- speed channel are plotting ways then that it is hard plus the proceeds of what I've been gigs they might do down there and.
Him and you know if you really wanna get technical about this the case had nothing to do was stand your ground where I mean as government's defense was plain old fashioned self defense which -- in the defense and the biblical times right but then that's it that's -- Two.
Eric Holder was talking about last week.
In a sense when he said we don't need that extra layer of legal protection as in -- -- mammal because self defense as you say has always been a defense.
So I assume that Eric Holder was expressing an opinion.
As a non Florida resident -- -- which he's entitled and and for which he is entitled to to express.
Because it's really none of the attorney general's business what the state laws of Florida war are our.
Unless those state laws are interfering with a federally protected right.
But he has the obligation to protect and that was not that was not the case here soon so whatever he thinks of standard -- fine that's his opinion this past.
Overwhelmingly in Florida I don't think the trade -- Martin case.
Is is going to dislodge it however.
There have been other fun fun toward unhappy.
Cases in Florida that haven't gotten the publicity it would -- on.
Based on -- misunderstanding.
Of the stand your ground statute.
Either misunderstanding by the personal invoked it or the jury who heard the case of the person who invoked if we never heard about the case.
Because it didn't have the racial political -- that the Trayvon Martin case that what did you make up by the president's comments on this on Friday.
I think that the president was -- dismayed at the outcome the of the jury trial and that's really wrong.
For the chief law enforcement officer of the land expressed that I was actually moved personally.
And I'm not a fan of the president's and you know who by some of the things he said I think he was really speaking from the heart I think -- yet it's unwise for him to do it it reminded me.
Of Richard Nixon in the midst of the Charles Manson prosecution when an off handed way said at a press conference -- everybody knows -- guilty.
And the next day the headlines -- -- California paperwork Nixon declares Manson guilty in the -- -- -- -- that paper into the courtroom stood up and showed it to the jury unless of course disrupted the trial.
Of course the judge to interrogate the jurors individually.
For about two hours each and they all basically said yeah we heard the president so who cares what the president thinks I honestly think.
That's the attitude of most jurors record mergers in the military -- commander in chief Charles civilian jurors who cares about what the president thinks and why is -- Statement would be it's time to learn lessons from this and it's time to move on not I'm sorry where I'm sorry about the right.
Why not use those words concern about the -- I mean I'm reading between the joy I guess.
