Is Florida tourism safe after verdict?
One aspect of the aftermath of the Zimmerman verdict that I have not heard about is the potential impact on Florida's all-important tourism. More specifically, I wonder if families of any color are asking themselves, "Is it safe for us to go there?"
Imagine the scenario: The family arrives in Orlando and stops for dinner. In the parking lot a couple "good 'ol' boys" who have had a little too much to drink (not too hard to imagine) confronts them and asks what "they" are doing in their town.
With Florida's "Pick a Fight and Come Out Firing" law, any normal resistance to these guys could be deadly, if they are among the many carrying weapons.
Laws have consequences. This could be an unintended one.
