An interview with John Lott at NewsMax notes:
African Americans, women, and the elderly are more likely to benefit from the controversial “Stand Your Ground” law than other groups, according to John Lott Jr., President of the Crime Prevention Research Center.
“Blacks are more likely to be successful in making claims using ‘Stand Your Ground’ than any other racial group. They benefit in many ways,” Lott told “The Steve Malzberg Show” on Newsmax TV.
“Blacks who live in high-crime urban areas are the people most likely to be victims of violent crime in the U.S. and it would be great if the police were able to protect them all of the time but they can’t.
