South Carolina Prosecutors Say Stand Your Ground Doesn’t Apply To Victims Of Domestic Violence





South Carolina is one of more than 20 states that has passed an expansive Stand Your Ground law authorizing individuals to use deadly force in self-defense. The law has been used to protect a man who killed an innocent bystanderwhile pointing his gun at several teens he called “women thugs.” But prosecutors in Charleston are drawing the line at domestic violence.

In the cases of women who claim they feared for their lives when confronted with violent intimate abusers, prosecutors say the Stand Your Ground law shouldn’t apply.

“(The Legislature’s) intent … was to provide law-abiding citizens greater protections from external threats in the form of intruders and attackers,” prosecutor Culver Kidd told the Post and Courier. “We believe that applying the statute so that its reach into our homes and personal relationships is inconsistent with (its) wording and intent.”

oh. well then.

Once again we see who SYG is REALLY for. 

Still waiting to hear from all those apologists who tell women to “Just get a gun!” if we don’t wanna experience abuse and violence from men.

We teach girls shame; close your legs, cover yourself, we make them feel as though being born female they’re already guilty of something. (via aurelle)
