With the Stand Your Ground law, a person no longer needs to prove that they feared for their safety, only that the individual they either injured or killed -- even those who are unarmed -- had forcefully and unlawfully intruded. ...the newer law extends the principle to vehicles and public places and also does away with an earlier requirement that said a person attacked in a public place must retreat if it is a viable option."

Fox News reports even the author of the law thinks it might need review, but maintains it doesn't apply to Zimmerman anyway.

"There's nothing in that law that authorizes them to pursue and confront."
