Governor Scott is on travel "recruiting businesses", and was not at his office when a group of protestors called "Florida's Dream Defenders" decided to occupy his office and demand SYG be repealed. Dream Defenders has been traced as a group funded and organized by groups "(f)rom the socialist-oriented SEIU union to ACORN to Occupy to a litany of George Soros-funded organizations" - and even the US DOJ (remember the reports of how the DOJ's CRS organized many of the original protests).
According to the Palm Beach Post, Scott is not budging. He sent a letter of his own to Florida NAACP President Adora Obi Nweze late Wednesday, informing the group that travel will prohibit him from returning to the capitol on Thursday.Scott screwed up from the start on this case. When the Sanford police decided not to arrest Zimmerman that first night, but continue their investigation, he got involved. More precisely, he caved and rolled over for Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton and the other hustlers. He's the one who dumped the prosecutor in charge, Norm Wolfinger, and appointed the epically incompetent and corrupt Angela Corey to prosecute Zimmerman. Even worse, Corey has still been out on the stump saying bad things about Zimmerman and the case, trying to inflame public outrage, and he hasn't throttled or fired her. Earth to Angela Corey! When a jury decides that the events in a case have occurred in a particular way or sequence, that's considered the truth. You may have heard of this "truth" stuff some time before.
“After holding seven public meetings and considering 16,603 pieces of correspondence and 160 public comments at Task Force meetings, the Task Force concurred with the Stand Your Ground law and I agree,” Scott wrote, according to the paper. “It is also important to note that Florida’s Stand Your Ground law was not argued in the Zimmerman case.”
It's encouraging to see signs of a spine developing here, but he has a long way to go.
