Daily Show Legal Genius on the Zimmerman Trial

As you probably know, the Zimmerman trial is well under way. For those who may not be up to speed, this trial is for George Zimmerman, the defendant, who shot a young black man, Trayvon Martin. This case is racially charged because Zimmerman, who is Latino, was not arrested until 44 days after the incident. Zimmerman pleads not guilty to a charge of second degree murder as he claims he acted in self-defense. Also at the stage of this case is Florida’s Stand Your Ground Law which allows a victim to use fatal force when acting in self-defense.

Well, of course, the Daily Show could not help itself with the legal jokes and I do think it was quite funny
