Public outrage grows over Trayvon Martin shooting

  • Supporters march in peaceful NYC protest
  • Pressure mounts for arrest in controversy
  • "No confidence" vote against police chief

HLN's Dr. Drew and Jane Velez-Mitchell teamed up tonight to try to make sense of the death of 17-year-old Florida teen, Trayvon Martin. Martin was shot last month armed with nothing but Skittles and a can of iced tea. He was wearing a hoodie. Neighborhood volunteer watchman, George Zimmerman, fired at the boy claiming it was in self-defense.

Velez-Mitchell demonstrates to Dr. Drew the "threats" that Martin allegedly posed. They, and callers to the program, discuss how the tragedy played out. The emotion this case has generated can be heard in a viewer's voice, and is reflected in comments to the show.
