Today is the 5th Anniversary of the death of Trayvon Martin, who was shot dead by George Zimmerman.

I don’t think any other website has covered the case as extensively as we have. We have hundreds of posts under the tags Trayvon Martin, George Zimmerman and George Zimmerman trial. We covered the...

I mostly missed the Ken Bone phenomenon. I either wasn’t watching or wasn’t listening when he asked a question at the last presidential debate.

He then became a media darling, though I’m not really sure why. Something to do with his red sweater, apparently. And the fact that after the debate he...

Yesterday Angela Corey, the prosecutor who dragged George Zimmerman into a hapless politically-motivated trial for second degree murder for the lawful killing of Trayvon Martin, has soundly lost the GOP primary race for her re-election as 4th Judicial State Attorney in the Jacksonville area of Florida, reports the Florida-Times Union newspaper.  Corey was defeated by a relatively...

I have left the coverage of the prosecution of six police officers in the Freddie Gray case to Andrew Branca. He had almost 100 posts.

As with the Geroge Zimmerman, Michael Dunn and other trials, Andrew did a superb job.

From the start of the prosecutions in the Freddie Gray case, Andrew called...

Facts don’t matter in the Black Lives Matter movement.

Trayvon Martin’s shooting planted the seeds for the movement. Contrary to popular myth, Trayvon was not unlawfully shot and killed by George Zimmerman. The trial evidence was overwhelming that Trayvon attacked Zimmerman with a punch to the nose and when shot was on...

Today the South Florida Times posted on their web site a piece entitled “FILM USES VIRTUAL REALITY TO REENACT TRAYVON’S MURDER.”

In that piece they describe a piece of fabricated (“virtual reality”) cinema that purports to tell the “true story” about the interaction between George Zimmerman and Trayvon Martin that resulted in...

Those of you who have been with us for over two years will recall our exhaustive coverage of the case, long before the trial.

The fatal shooting of the Mike Brown by police officer Darren Wilson has raised a hue and cry about a wide variety of social issues, among them the increasingly vitriolic nature of American race relations, the astonishing militarization of the police (or, perhaps more accurately, their equipment), and the curious (to...

E.J. Dionne, Jr., in his Washington Post piece entitled “Repeal stand-your-ground laws,” presents us with yet another example of the utter inability of too many journalists to grasp the relatively simple and straightforward legal concept commonly referred to as “Stand-Your-Ground.”

Humorously, the first paragraph of his piece had me utterly convinced that Dionne...

The Zimmerman and Dunn cases have been lumped together by many commentators, but the cases had almost nothing in common.

Based on the evidence presented in court, the Zimmerman jury got it right. Based on the evidence presented in court, the Dunn jury got the murder count wrong in deadlocking — although...

The deification of Trayvon Martin, with comparisons to Martin Luther King, Jr. and Emmitt Till, is just part of the false narrative of the prosecution of George Zimmerman.
