Your Call: What happens in the criminal justice system after a young black man is shot and killed?

Jul 21, 2015

What happens in the criminal justice system after a young black man is shot and killed?  On the next Your Call, we’ll talk about the new documentary 3 ½ Minutes, 10 Bullets, which 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 the filmmaker and Jordan Davis’s father Ron – on the next Your Call with Rose Aguilar, and you.

Guests:

Marc Silver, filmmaker, director of photography, and social impact producer

Ron Davis, Jordan Davis' father
