THREAD: The Florida Supreme Court made a really important ruling yesterday that's going to make it tougher to prosecute wrongful police shootings. https://t.co/iYqwmiXxSn
The court ruled that "Stand Your Ground" applies to police officers, too. This means that police officers can get immunity from prosecution and civil judgements without ever going before a jury.
The Fla Supreme Court ruling stems from the 2013 shooting of Jermaine McBean, a black computer engineer who was walking down the street with an air rifle on his shoulders. He was acting strangely, so people called police.
