    Wow. I think the only thing the reporter got correct in this story was the spelling of Dickie Bell's name. What a one-sided, inaccurate pile of garbage! Common law is not something "decided by previous court cases." It's well established old English law that was carried over hundreds of years ago. Secondly, why is the reporter proclaiming that this bill would make people safer? That's not her job. It's debatable whether or not the castle doctrine would keep anyone safe. Why do you think it failed to pass? Where was the other side of this story? You talked to two guys who support the bill. And WHAT does the castle doctrine have to do with the Florida stand your ground law? THEY ARE NOT THE SAME!!!!! I wanted to claw my eyes out watching this. It needs to be removed or severely edited.

      I think you'll find that common law actually IS law developed through court case rulings...look it up. :) The author of the article also does not give HER opinion that the bill would keep people safe, but is reiterating the opinion of Dennis Golden. Lastly, I don't see where the stand your ground law is mentioned in the article-perhaps I'm missing something?
