Zimmerman Trial: Race, Self-Defense And The Law


Today on the Florida Roundup at noon on 91.3 FM:

We’re bracing for a verdict in the Zimmerman case, a trial that has the state on edge. Does Florida’s Stand Your Ground law make it an open-and-shut case for the defense? And is too much being made of the possible reaction if Trayvon Martin’s killer is set free?

The U.S. Justice Department finds - for the second time in a decade - that City of Miami police used excessive force in a spate of shootings, seven resulting in the deaths of black residents of the city.
