The Trayvon Martin case took an important and long-awaited turn this week when state prosecutors filed second degree murder charges against George Zimmerman. Shortly after the charges were announced, Zimmerman turned himself in to law enforcement.
The event was well publicized to say the least. Consecutive press conferences from the state’s attorney and Trayvon Martin’s parents ran on every cable news channel, followed by 24-hour coverage and analysis of the Zimmerman arrest.
The comedic nature of the media firestorm wasn’t lost on The Daily Show’s Jon Stewart, who dubbed the event and the inevitable weeks of coverage to come “Zimdecision 2012.”
