Florida Police Warn Public Against Taking Law Into Own Hands Unless It’s That Law Specifically Designed For You To Do That

SANFORD, FL—Amidst the controversy surrounding the recent shooting death of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin, the Sanford Police Department cautioned Florida residents Tuesday against taking the law into their own hands, except when following the state statute that explicitly authorizes people to do so. “Let me be clear: We do not want citizens resorting to deadly force when they believe they’re being threatened—unless, of course, they are following the letter of the law, which says they can resort to deadly force when they believe they’re being threatened,” said interim Sanford police chief Darren Scott, referring to the state’s “Stand Your Ground” rule. “Law enforcement should be left to the police. However, it can also be left to common citizens, since pursuing vigilante justice is perfectly within their legal rights. Have I made myself clear?” After being bombarded with questions about the confusing nature of the law, a flustered Scott said, “Just don’t be racist and kill people, okay?”
