The first in a series of public forums on Florida's Stand Your Ground gets under way today.

 A daylong meeting that looks at Florida's Stand Your Ground Law and invites public comments is under way today in Longwood, Florida.

The public meeting features law enforcement officials, attorneys and experts on the state's self-defense law, which has come under scrutiny since the shooting death of Sanford teenager Trayvon Martin.

Guest speakers include Det. Mike Bailey of the Pinellas County Sheriff's Office.

The meeting includes comments from the public. People will direct comments to a task force assigned to review the law. The public is also invited to provide input by contacting the task force through the website www.FLGov.com/citizensafety or by e-mailing CitizenSafety@eog.myflorida.com.

I have to beefs ! Why does the media keep posting photos of Trevon when it was a little kid ? this is because the Media is owned by the NWO 8 richest Families EVERY one with sense knows its true ! 2) Zimmerman is no KILLER Trevon was the attempted killer !!! he pinned Zimmerman and blasted him with his head on the concrete trying to kill the man ! HE GOT what he had coming and NEVER pursued anyone WITH ANY gun SO why is the STAND YOUR GROUND LAW ON TRIAL ? THIS WORLD IS JUST GETTING SICKER AND SICKER BY THE MOMENT !

Why is it no one saw anything wrong with the SYG laws until poor little a thug got blown away while trying to bash in the head of a neighborhood watch patrol?
