Just as it should be...

Man facing first-degree murder charge freed | | Tallahassee Democrat The judge in the case seems to be confused about Florida's Stand Your Ground law.
Circuit Court Judge Angela Dempsey denied the motion in March, citing there was not enough information to prove Hair acted in self-defense.
You are not "guilty until proved innocent" in America, and under Florida's law, it is the duty of the prosecution to prove it was not self-defense.

A lot is being said that the reason he was charged and held (and the judge made this ridiculous statement) was because he is black. Probably too much truth to that statement.
