the force used had led to the murder of Trayvon. Other paralegals were of the opinion that Mr. Zimmerman was not entitled to any court case considering that he had acted in self defense based on the number of times that the gated community had been engaged in robberies. In addition, the same constitution gave the volunteers the authority to use excessive force, which included the use of guns without facing any legal actions. Using this opinion, they believed that Mr. Zimmer was not, in any way, in the wrong side of the law and was fully protected. In this particular case, the need for using conflict diagnosis and conflict resolution is very significant considering that the two parties that were involved in the incident must be in a position to accept and comprehend the results that are given for the conflict. According to Brown (2012), the main factor that has led to the law not being disbanded in Florida based on this law is the fact that the state does not keep a detailed record of the impacts that the ‘Stand Your Ground’ law has had on the people in the community. He also argued that this has helped in increase the numbers of murders that occur considering that most of them are considered to be as a result of self defense thus meaning that the perpetrators do not have to be charged in any court of law. This lack of a specialized record for the impacts of the law has shown that most of the individuals have turned to the use of excessive force when protecting themselves, which has been a factor that has contributed to the increase in the number of deaths (Brown, 2012). Most of the people involved in the crimes claim that they reacted to the situation leading to the death of the victims, which is a factor that is considered when deciding whether or not a crime is self defense. Brown (2012) also argues that the states that have indicted the law into their by-laws should consider looking at the impacts that it has on the community before deciding to amend it

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
