Response to 1-Old-Man (Original post)

28. I wonder if SYG laws may some day be found

a violation of the 14th Amendment. It now looks like if a Black man is killed by a person claiming the SYG law, the person claiming it is more likely to walk than a person that kills a White man. If that is found to be the case, those laws may become a violation of the Constitution.

"No State shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any State deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws."

We have to ask if the tables were turned and Zimmerman was a black man and Trayvon was a white man, would the actions of the police and been different? If so, and the same thing is happening else where under SYG laws, Those laws would appear to violate the 14th Amendment.
