These two ways of understanding the death of Markeis McGlockton stand at the heart of the debate over stand-your-ground laws—self-defense laws that have been enacted in roughly half of all U.S. states—and his tragic death has reignited questions over the effectiveness of these laws and whether their enforcement is disproportionately affected by implicit biases.

Hmnph. "Big Think", but no talk. No provision for comments, which is typical of those sites where exposing their bias and misinformation is a no-no.

So I'll do it here.

"They point to George Zimmerman, who was instructed by law enforcement not to get out of his SUV or approach Treyvon Martin."

This false meme is repeated ad nauseum by those who have been corrected already and dismiss the correction as irrelevant. The truth is that Zimmerman was already out of his vehicle trying to keep Martin in sight, and was then told AFTERWORD that "We don't need you to do that.", whereupon he immediately headed back toward his car. It was then he was jumped by Martin, and dispatchers have no color of authority to issue orders in the first place.
