The Republican War On Women – ‘South Carolina Prosecutors Say Stand Your Ground Doesn’t Apply To Victims Of Domestic Violence’
‘South Carolina is one of more than 20 states that has passed an expansive Stand Your Ground law authorizing individuals to use deadly force in self-defense. The law has been used to protect a man who killed an innocent bystander while pointing his gun at several teens he called “women thugs.”
‘But prosecutors in Charleston are drawing the line at domestic violence’.
“(The Legislature’s) intent … was to provide law-abiding citizens greater protections from external threats in the form of intruders and attackers,” prosecutor Culver Kidd told the Post and Courier’.
“We believe that applying the statute so that its reach into our homes and personal relationships is inconsistent with (its) wording and intent.”
