Florida gives immunity from civil suits in a self-defense killing. Plus O'Mara said that they will 'seek and we will get' immunity
from civil suits if any are 'spawned from this fiasco.'
“Experience should teach us to be most on our guard to protect liberty when the Government’s purposes are beneficent. Men born to freedom are naturally alert to repel invasion of their liberty by evil-minded rulers. The greatest dangers to liberty lurk in insidious encroachment by men of zeal, well-meaning but without understanding.” — James Madison
