Summary
Suspicion Nation outlines the six biggest mistakes made by the state of Florida that guaranteed it would lose this "winnable case," and the laws and biases that created the conditions for this tragedy. The only nonwhite juror tells her story of painful isolation in the jury room. Rachel Jeantel, the state's star witness, reveals how poorly the state prepared her to testify and what went through her mind on the stand. The medical examiner reveals scientific evidence he wasn't allowed to present. And a new examination of Trayvon's school suspensions raises questions about racial profiling, all in a country divided over issues of race, gun laws, and violence
Summary
In Suspicion Nation, Lisa Bloom, who covered the trial from gavel to gavel, posits that none of this was a surprise: Our laws, culture, and blind spots created the conditions that led to Trayvon Martin's death and made George Zimmerman's acquittal by far the most likely outcome
