As you probably know by now, George Zimmerman is the neighborhood watch volunteer accused of murder in the shooting of Trayvon Martin, an unarmed black teenager. Zimmerman says he shot Martin in self-defense.
But whether the jury ends up siding with prosecutors or Zimmerman's defense lawyers, plenty of Floridians will disagree with the verdict. We look at how some in Tampa Bay are responding to the case.
Orlando Davis is program director and morning show host for Wild 94.1 FM.
Last year after George Zimmerman shot Trayvon Martin, Davis got permission from his general manager to break format and have a longer discussion about Martin's death. The station stopped the music and moved commercials to accommodate the conversation.
"We did a nice three-hour forum with the Hillsborough prosecutor Felix Vega, with [Tampa Bay Times media critic] Eric Deggans, with a psychologist who came in and talked about the emotional side of dealing with this, as far as a culture," Davis said. "And we took calls, and we really felt that it was important for us to get in front of it because we felt like Trayvon or people who are like Trayvon listen to our station."
