The shooting of Trayvon Martin took place on February 26, 2012, in Sanford, Florida. Trayvon Martin was a 17-year-old African American who was shot and killed by 28-year-old George Zimmerman, a man of mixed ethnicity (Peruvian and white American)  Martin, who was unarmed, had been walking to the home of his father's girlfriend from a convenience store when Zimmerman, a community watch captain,followed him while on the phone with the Sanford Police Department, saying he witnessed suspicious behavior. Soon afterward, there was a physical altercation which ended when Zimmerman fatally shot Martin

Zimmerman who is citing 'self defense' has not yet been arrested. As people across America protest against this, I invite a panel to join me on to night's episode to look at the incident and all that has transpired since.
