Attorney John Burris on how prosecutors failed to win a conviction of George Zimmerman
KPFA Sunday Show/Davey D and John Burris
On Sunday, 07.14.2013, the day after a jury acquitted George Zimmerman of all charges in the shooting death of unarmed 17-year-old Trayvon Martin in Sanford, Florida, KPFA produced a special broadcast of the Sunday Show, including many voices. This is the voice of John Burris, who spoke to KPFA's Davey D Cook for almost ten minutes about why the prosecution failed. He confirmed what Mumia Abu Jamal wrote, before the verdict was delivered: that the defense had succeeded in turning every witness for the prosecution into a witness for the defense. A link to the longer broadcast that it was extracted from is included below.
