Response to Major Nikon (Reply #47)

50. No - there is still the reasonable man standard

would a reasonable person fear for his life. You can honestly feel that your life was threatened and still be charged and convicted if the jury doesn't accept that your fear was reasonable.

Zimmerman was arrested, charged with murder and is in jail. Just how did the law fail?
