The Verdict is in, NOT GUILTY!  Zimmerman goes free!  Did the State of Florida really put up an effective prosecution?

Our guest Monday morning is Charlie Grapski who will discuss the implications for the public, how state officials handled this case from the start, and other issues that were not directly addressed in the trial of George Zimmerman. 

Beyond the issue of whether or not Zimmerman is guilty or innocent of a criminal offense, the public has a need to know how and why this trial almost never happened and how that reflects the state of law and justice in Florida.

Many around the nation may be asking why Florida is continually in the center of controversy in the spheres of politics and law.  Callers to the show and Mitch and Charlie grapple with answers. 

The world’s attention was drawn to this drama as it unfolded in the Sunshine State.  The emotional testimony and graphic images sit uneasily with America’s commitment to democratic government, principles of justice, and the fundamental rights and liberties of individuals.

Charles Grapski is a teacher and scholar of law and politics, especially the theory and practice of democracy.  The Citizen, he states, is the highest office in a democratic society.  Grapski not only seeks to teach and inspire others to the ideals of citizenship but he actively participates as such, seeking to establish a functional and flourishing democracy at home (at all levels of the US) as well as throughout the world.

Grapski has advanced degrees in law and politics from University College London and the University of Florida.
