Our South Florida Remote uplink studio in downtown Fort Lauderdale welcomed Florida State Rep. Perry Thurston To our studio set. Representative Thurston was our studio guest on MSNBC’s Politics Nation with the Reverend Al Sharpton. They, along with legal analyst Lisa Bloom, discussed Florida’s controversial “Stand Your Ground” Law, coinciding with the one year anniversary of the George Zimmerman Verdict. In that case, Zimmerman was found not guilty in the murder of then 17 year old Trayvon Martin. The case and later the verdict, sparked outrage nationwide as many were calling for a repeal to this very controversial law. Perry Thurston led the charge to try to appeal this law back in March of this year.
