Florida 'Stand Your Ground' Acquittal We Haven't Heard Of- Sex, Booze, ED, Guns And Waffles (Video)

By Susan Duclos

It had all the hallmarks of a sensational story, sex, booze, erectile dysfunction, adultery, a man literally caught with his pants down, guns, and Florida's "Stand Your Ground" defense in court, with a celebratory dinner at Waffle House after the acquittal, yet it wasn't widely reported on and certainly wasn't turned into the media circus the Zimmerman trial was.

In late May, 70 year-old  retired U.S. Army Lt. Col. Ralph Wald was acquitted of killing  32 year-old Walter Conley, after walking in and finding Conley with his pants around his ankles and having sex with Wald's 41 year-old wife, Johnna Lynn Flores, on the living room floor.

The defense based their case on Florida's "Stand Your Ground" law, saying Wald  thought Conley was raping his very drunk wife, got out a gun and shot Conley in the stomach and head, then called 911 to report the incident. They invoked Florida's "Stand Your Ground" self-defense law, asserting that Wald had "no duty to retreat" when facing perceived danger within his own home.

The prosecution said Wald, who suffered from erectile dysfunction, killed Conley in a jealous rage.

The jury acquitted Wald. Then Wald took his wife Flores out to celebrate, at the Waffle House.

Perhaps it wasn't racially divisive enough for the MSM, after all  it was a white older man, with a white younger wife that shot and killed a white younger man having sex with the wife on their living room floor.

Florida and other states' Stand Your Ground laws are under fire because of the George Zimmerman/Trayvon Martin media coverage, a case I might add where the defense did not invoke the law, but instead argued and won the case, where Zimmerman was determined to have shot Martin in self-defense.
