Jesse Jackson temporarily waiving his position on ‘Stand Your Ground’?

On Monday in Tallahassee, Jesse Jackson and others will march for the repeal of Florida’s “Stand Your Ground” law. Jackson has said that such a law makes Florida an “apartheid state” or something.

Now couple Jackson’s demand for the end of “Stand Your Ground” with this:

Alexander was sentenced to 20 years for aggravated assault and tried to invoke Stand Your Ground, but was denied. A judge recently ordered a new trial. Maybe she’ll be allowed to use Stand Your Ground at the new trial — unless Jackson & company manage to have it repealed before then.
