Neighborhood Watch

Written by Rob Rogers on .

The fervor over the killing of African-American teenager Trayvon Martin has dominated the airwaves over the last few days. George Zimmerman, the man who killed Martin, was released by local police in Florida under the state's "stand your ground" law. In other words, Zimmerman is claiming self defense despite the fact that Martin was unarmed. Zimmerman deserves his day in court, but after listening to the 911 call and knowing Zimmerman's history of reporting black males to the police, I have my doubts about self defense.
