GSC has really stirred up a hornet's nest with that post. He is getting heavily flamed and insulted. A few are joining in defending him. He seems to be giving as good as he is getting.http://www.democraticunderground.com/10023322252

In FL there are Blacks who shoot Whites and use SYG and get off.
The Tampa Bay Times http://www.tampabay.com/stand-your-g...nonfatal-cases has been assembling the details of all shooting cases that involved SYG since the law was inacted. Some are fatalities, some are only woundings. The web site is interactive so you can set it to show whatever detail that you want to, including details of individual cases. Most shooting are between people of the same race. Setting the filter for black on white shootings, adding fatalities and woundings for total shootings we find:
Black on White - 4 convicted, 12 justified, 4 pending
White on Black - 3 convicted, 14 justified, 5 pending
Total of all SYG claims:
59 convicted, 143 justified, 35 pending
So SYG isn't used that often, is not a shoot anybody for free card, and is not for-Whites-only.
