Stand your Ground Law
The Stand Your Ground Law is a type of self-defense law that gives individuals the right to use deadly force to defend themselves without any requirement to evade or retreat from a dangerous situation.

Based on this interpretation by the author it could be argued that Mr. Zimmerman had no grounds to enforce the stand your ground law.

He followed the pedestrian even after been advised not to follow. It appears that after he followed him for a while Martin reacted to the follower there causing some aggravation between both of them. In actuality, Martin was the one standing his ground not Mr. Zimmerman.
Mr. Zimmerman was not at his home and Trayvon was not an intruder, forcefully or unlawfully attempting to enter George Zimmerman’s residence. Based in what we know Mr. Zimmerman was not in fear of his life, the shooting did not occur in his residence there was no act of self defense, once it was established that he was the shooter, the burden of proof would be on Mr. Zimmerman to prove that he acted in self defense.
