Obama introduced stand your ground legislation

For the lofo voter.

 

snip-

The  Obama-sponsored bill (SB 2386) enlarged the state's 1961 law by shielding the person who was attacked from being sued  in civil court by perpetrators or their estates when a "stand your ground"  defense is used in protecting his or her  person, dwelling or other property.

The  bill unanimously passed the Democrat-controlled Illinois Senate on March 25,  2004 with only one comment, and passed the Democrat-controlled Illinois  House in May 2004 with only two votes in opposition.

How do you stalk someone when you don't know where they are?

Re: Obama introduced stand your ground legislation

A police dispatcher is not a certified police officer. They can make suggestions, however , they do not have authority of law.

Re: Obama introduced stand your ground legislation

This from the Florida statutes:

 

(a) “911 public safety telecommunicator” means a public safety dispatcher or 911 operator whose duties and responsibilities include the answering, receiving, transferring, and dispatching functions related to 911 calls; dispatching law enforcement officers, fire rescue services, emergency medical services, and other public safety services to the scene of an emergency; providing real-time information from federal, state, and local crime databases; or supervising or serving as the command officer to a person or persons having such duties and responsibilities. However, the term does not include administrative support personnel, including, but not limited to, those whose primary duties and responsibilities are in accounting, purchasing, legal, and personnel.

This would seem that they do have the authority to tell someone that they should stay away from the suspect and to wait for the police.

He wasn't talking to a police dispatcher.
