• Quote:

As Walter Olson and others have explained, Florida's Stand Your Ground law is utterly irrelevant in the Zimmerman case. If Zimmerman stalked Martin and shot him in cold blood, then obviously he didn't act in self-defense. If Martin set upon Zimmerman, knocked him to the ground, and started pummeling him, as Zimmerman claims, then Zimmerman couldn't have safely retreated, which is what Stand Your Ground opponents would have potential victims do instead of fighting back. Either way, Stand Your Ground has no bearing on the propriety of Zimmerman's actions

• My Ideas:

I am going to use this case as support for my argument against racial profiling.

• Quote:

Confronted with evidence disproving their claims of discrimination, race-baiters always shift the standard of proof to make their case just one step harder to discredit, so that they get a clean slate from their previous raft of false accusations and must meet only their current, self-determined burden of proof

• My Ideas:

i will use this quote to support my opinion on how racial pofiling works.

• Quote:

The ACLU [American Civil Liberties Union] has argued that such discrimination alienates communities from law enforcement, hinders community policing efforts, and causes law enforcement to lose credibility and trust among the people they are sworn to protect and serve. They conclude that "countless people ... live in fear [because of] a system of law enforcement that casts entire communities as suspect."

• My Ideas:

I'm going to use the seond sentence as a direct quote in my perauassive essay, but i will reference to the first sentence but not as a direct quote.

• Quote:

The problem is that our customary and ordinary forms of rationality, our 'odds reasoning,' our daily uses of statistical discrimination are leading us astray.

I'm going to use this quote as inspiration for one of my ideas in my persuassive essay.
