Stand Your Ground


On the September 10th edition of Your Call, we’ll talk about the new documentary 3 ½ Minutes, Ten Bullets. The film tells the story of Jordan Davis, an unarmed black 17 year-old shot to death after a dispute with a white man in a gas station parking lot on November 23, 2012.  

The killer, Michael Dunn, was ultimately convicted of first-degree murder. But the story of the trial shows the danger and subjectivity of Florida's Stand Your Ground self-defense laws.  Hear from Jordan Davis’s father Ron.

On the August 12th edition of Your Call we’ll look back at how the death of unarmed teenager Michael Brown ignited the Black Lives Matter movement.

On today's Your Call we’ll talk about neighborhood watch and "Stand Your Ground" laws. There are 21 around the country, including Florida, where, on February 26, Trayvon Martin, an unarmed black teenager, was shot to death by 28-year-old George Zimmerman. After an outcry over the failure to arrest Zimmerman, Justice Department officials stepped in. How do so-called “Shoot First” laws work? What would justice in this case look like? It’s Your Call with Rose Aguilar, and you.
