From Arizona To Florida, Stand Your Ground Ends In Manslaughter

Cordell Jude charged with 2nd degree murder, convicted of reckless manslaughter, in what is called a “reverse Trayvon Martin” case.


“Two cases, over 2300 miles apart – in Florida and Arizona – are in the web of situations involving stand your ground laws.”

Although this situation was different than the Trayvon Martin / George Zimmerman case, in this “reverse” case, the darker “Stand your ground” Cordell Jude was convicted, where the lighter George Zimmerman was not.

A big difference however is that Cordell Jude said something like “I’m gonna get you”, or “kill you”, according to witnesses, where George Zimmerman didn’t say that.
