THE LEGAL PERIL AND RISKS OF THE DEFENDANT'S ARGUMENTS

If 17 year old Eric Banks claims that he shot Barney Simms in SELF DEFENSE after a sexual advance from another man he risks having the Civil Rights Activist friends of Barney Simms vacate their previous support of 'Stand Your Ground' ( Marissa Alexander used to affirm 'Stand Your Ground' and a Black man in Cobb County who shot a White male who was on his property but the 'Stand Your Ground' claim was dismissed by the jury and he was convicted. BOTH CASES were used to make the case that RACISM trumps a Black person's ability to defend themselves. ) and instead see this as a HATE CRIME.
