Eva Paterson on Racial Profiling and the Trayvon Martin case

Watch Complete Episode: July 19, 2013 »

The acquittal of George Zimmerman in the shooting death of Trayvon Martin has sparked strong reaction, from Florida to California. The verdict, which coincided with the opening of the feature film "Fruitvale Station" about the killing of Oscar Grant by a BART police officer in 2009, struck a nerve in the Bay Area. It also cast a renewed spotlight on "stand your ground" laws, which allow people to defend themselves with deadly force if they feel threatened. Eva Paterson, president of the Equal Justice Society, discusses the lasting impact of these cases.
