Trayvon Martin: The Latest, Week 52
Monday, Feb. 25, 1:19 p.m. EST: One year later: Trayvon Martin's mother pushes for change in "Stand your ground" laws: On Monday's edition of Tell Me More, Sybrina Fulton tells host Michel Martin that what happened to her son should not be "about black and white." She hopes for justice, not only in her son's case, but also for changes in "Stand your ground" laws -- so that "you cannot follow, pursue [or] chase anyone ... be the aggressor ... shoot and kill them ... and then go home to your bed." Fulton is pushing for a "Trayvon Martin" amendment to add those conditions to these laws.
