Gov. Scott Launches Task Force on Citizens Safety and Protection

Gov. Rick Scott's task force on citizen safety and protection was formed as a result of the overwhelming public pressure for the arrest of George Zimmerman in the fatal shooting of Miami Gardens teen Trayvon Martin while he was visiting in Sanford, FL in late February 2012.

Police did not initially arrest Zimmerman citing 'Stand Your Ground' as justifiable defense.

The task force is chaired by Lt. Gov. Jennifer Carroll and co-chaired by Rev. R.B. Holmes. The task force's review will include but not limited to the controversial 'Stand Your Ground' law. Go to the Task Force's website for a complete listing of the task force members, meeting dates, background information and other details.
