2. Once again, "stand your ground" laws have NOTHING to do with this.

"Stand your ground"--which is the law in something like 43 states if I recall correctly--simply means you aren't legally obligated to try to run away from an attacker instead of defending yourself. It does not in ANY WAY cover what happened in Florida: it's on the local police's attempts to cover up the crime, pure and simple, that Zimmerman hasn't been arrested and charged yet.
