VIDEO: 100% of Florida ADULTS Testifying In Hearing SUPPORTED Stand-Your-Ground

Hey folks,

I’ve already mentioned in a previous post how not a single Black adult (who was not a “professional” in the criminal justice or race-hate industry) appeared before the FLorida House Judiciary Committee to testify in support of HB-4003 and against Stand-Your-Ground.

VIDEO: How many Black adults testified against SYG in Florida hearing? ZERO

Conversely, 100% of the 16 Florida adults (also not “professionals”) who appeared before the Judiciary Committee testified AGAINST HB-4003 and IN SUPPORT of Stand-Your-Ground.

Below is video their testimony, in the order in which it was delivered. I should mention that although 16 of these adults actually testified, there was perhaps an equal number–or more–who were physically present and prepared to speak in opposition to HN-4003 but waived their time to other opponents of HB-4003. This means that the 14 people (mostly children) testifying in favor of HB-4003 were vastly outnumbered by those present who opposed the bill.

(NOTE: All the speaker names are spelled phonetically, my apologies for the resultant misspellings.)


And, to close things up, here’s the final roll call vote that dispatched HB-4003 by an 11-2 vote:

Have a great weekend, everybody, and have a great Columbus Day!
