The Trial of George Zimmerman
with a special introduction by Alan Dershowitz
Shortly after George Zimmerman shot Trayvon Martin in what a Florida jury later concluded was a legitimate act of self-defense, President Obama sent a very public “message” to Martin’s parents—“if I had a son, he would look like Trayvon.” The Zimmerman-Martin case was among the most racially divisive tragedies in modern judicial history. Who was more at fault can never be known with absolute certainty because of lack of witnesses or other evidence of crucial events surrounding the shooting. Jack Cashill brings to life moments leading up to the Zimmerman-Martin tragedy, as well as the investigation and Zimmerman's trial thereafter.
