Public Safety & Healthcare Admin Cmte 11/14/2012 1D2 Presented
REPORT: Assistant County Attorney Gerald Sanchez read into the record the title of the citizen’s presentation. Mr. Alan Rigerman, 17910 NW 79 Avenue, requested that the County Commission discuss the Stand Your Ground law, including whether it would be appropriate to adopt a resolution expressing opposition to this law. He stressed that Trayvon Martin’s case deserved to be investigated and expressed the view that too many crimes were committed under the cover of the Stand Your Ground law. On another note, he said he believed that voters were not suppressed in this County. He explained the only election that voters needed more time to vote for were presidential elections. Commissioner Jordan noted she did not expect the Task Force on Citizen Safety and Protection to make any substantial recommendations. She pointed out that the County Commission had already adopted Resolution No. R-322-12, which addressed Mr. Rigerman’s suggestion regarding the Stand Your Ground law. However, she noted she disagreed with Mr. Rigerman regarding voter suppression.
