Seattle Mayoral Candidate Charlie Staadecker
Seattle mayoral candidate Charlie Staadecker joins us to talk about his run ahead of the August 6 primary election.
"Stand Your Ground" Gets New Scrutiny After Zimmerman Verdict
While George Zimmerman didn’t end up using Florida’s "Stand Your Ground" law in his defense in the shooting death of Trayvon Martin, the statute loomed large over his case. In an interview with CNN, one juror said that the jury had the state's "Stand Your Ground" law in mind when deciding Zimmerman’s fate. We talk with John Nichols, Washington correspondent for The Nation, about a new push to repeal similar laws and the organization that has worked hard to get it on the books.
