TV show bias: Stand Your Ground Laws supposedly let you shoot anyone trespassing on your property

Apr 5, 2024 | Media Bias

CBS’ new show Tracker claims that Stand Your Ground laws let you fatally shoot a nonthreatening person who is trespassing on your property (Season 1, Episode 3, February 25, 2024). Of course, Stand Your Ground laws do nothing of the sort. The alternative to Stand Your Ground laws is that the person retreats as far as possible before firing in self-defense. But Stand Your Ground laws replace the duty to retreat with a reasonable person standard. — a reasonable person must believe that they are endangered of serious injury or death and then can only use force in proportion to the danger that they face.
