CAPE CORAL, Fla. - The state of Florida's orange juice is now in the cross hairs from some people against the stand your ground law. Martin Luther king III now calling for a boycott of Florida orange juice until the law is repealed.
"I mean we might have to look at not consuming Florida orange juice. The true way, generally, when people don't understand your plight is when you decide to exercise your buying power elsewhere," King said.
King made the remarks at the NAACP convention in Orlando just four days after George Zimmerman's acquittal in the shooting death of Trayvon Martin.
Many of you are standing by the state of Florida..
"If they don't want to buy our orange juice and if they don't want to come to Florida then so be it...it will give us more room," said Kathy from Fort Myers.
Christie posted to Facebook, "Why should we change the law just because the verdict was not what they wanted? Florida is not the only state with the stand your ground law!"
"Everyone needs to respect the court and our judicial system and let the families move on," wrote Nina.
Alona said in part, "Perhaps the courts need to be very careful how they interpret it."
Kay supporting the stand your ground law but adds, "It's a free country, do what you must within the law."
