Episode Notes

The shooting death of 17 year old Trayvon Martin in Florida has sparked outrage across the country. On February 26, 2012, Trayvon died from a single gunshot to the chest.  Police say neighborhood watch captain, George Zimmerman, fired that shot.  Zimmerman is using Florida’s “Stand Your Ground” Law to justify the killing.  Lawyer2Lawyer co-hosts and attorneys, Craig Williams and Bob Ambrogi, welcome Professor Michelle Jacobs, from the University of Florida’s Levin College of Law and Professor Kenneth Novak, Ph.D., Chair of the Department of Criminal Justice at the University of Missouri– Kansas City, to explore the legal issues surrounding the “Stand Your Ground” law, neighborhood watches, and the possibility of racial profiling.
