Shocked by some and celebrated by others, the George Zimmerman not guilty verdict certainly touched the third rail of race in the judicial system around the country and beyond. It is an established fact that George Zimmerman did kill Trayvon Martin on a rainy day in February 2012. 

The question remains what precipitated the tragic death of an unarmed 17 year old, merely walking home with a bag of Skiddles and a can of Arizona iced tea The judge, jury and executioner became an armed neighborhood watchman wary of young black men wearing hoodies.

It’s all on trial here in Florida...Stand Your Ground. Gun Laws.  Self Defense Trials. And the never ending saga of RACE in America.

Tampa Based Attorney Warren Hope Dawson is our guest today. A veteran attorney who mentored Attorneys Daryl Parks and Benjamin Crump, the lawyers representing Trayvon Martin’s parents. He’ll walk us through the Florida legal system that yielded Saturday night’s not guilty verdict.

Special thanks to my brother, Attorney Wilson Copeland, for helping to arrange the interview with Attorney Dawson.
