Clips From Last Night: Trayvon Martin Case and no Grand Jury; Gary Vaynerchuck breaks down Facebook, Instagram

On the heels of the announcement that the Trayvon Martin case will not be going to the Florida Grand Jury, on Monday "Piers Morgan Tonight" invited a panel of legal experts to review and react to the latest developments.

Criminal Defense Attorney Alan Dershowitz suggested that the special prosecutor's decision is her way of taking responsibility:

"She is accountable to making this decision," he told Piers Morgan. "And she should get it right. She shouldn't be influenced by public opinion."

Meanwhile, Attorney Roy Black concluded that the news will prove ominous for George Zimmerman:

"In Florida, the grand jury is where political cases go to die," declared Black. "If the prosecutor wanted to dump the case and not have any backlash, she would send it to the grand jury. The fact that she's going to make the decision, I think, means that she's probably going to charge him."

Also on Monday night, Morgan invited social media expert Gary Vaynerchuck to offer his insight amidst the aftermath of Facebook's billion dollar purchase of Instagram.

The co-founder of Vaynermedia, Vaynerchuk belives the buy represents a way for the social networking service to capitalize on expanding mobile business:

"Mobile is the game," said best-selling author. "Because it's not in Facebook's DNA. They didn't start as a mobile company. They're a social company. Just like Google."

Watch the clips, and listen to the interviews, as Monday's live show tackles two of the nation's most talked about topics.

  1. Truth please

    Is George Zimmerman with Samuel Sheinbein the killer of Alfredo Tello Jr ?Alfredo Tello was gruesome murdered with his body cut by an electrical chainsaw in Maryland by Samuel Sheinbein, Sept 1997.
    Samuel Sheinbein's father Sol Sheinbein (an attorney) flew Samuel Sheinbein to Israel and that's where they live now. George Zimmerman father is a judge or magistrate, knows the law enough to fly the killer son out of United States.
    Why is justice an empty word ? Was Sol Sheinbein and Sr Zimmerman friends? after all they did not live far from each other. Alfredo Tello family and friends have never see justice served why ? Will Trayvon Martin family and friends have to suffer like Alfredo Tello family. Piers will you please invite Alfredo Tello's family and let the world hear the pain they are still suffering since the summer of 1997. There son was as beautiful to them as our kids our.

    Read more on Samuel Sheinbein and see the similarities:

    I think that Piers Morgan should shut his mouth about George Zimmerman and let the justice system do their job. How will Piers feel if someone takes justice into their own hands? Why does CNN feel like they have the right to incite hatred and pass their personal feelings onto others? The only thing this case means to CNN is viewers and money. For God's sake, shut up.

      Betty Gallagher: If Trayvon Martin was your son how would you feel? Would you give up and let justic systom do it's job ?
      Piers should never shut up for justice. The media gave up when Alferdo Tello was brutelly killed. Justice is an empty word if you are not chosen. So why don't you shut up Betty high an mighty. Piers and CNN is keeping the story alive so justice can be served for Trayvon Martin. This is not Fox news remember.

    What a soft-ball "interview" 'Piers is conducting with George Zimmerman's brother! Really, Piers...can you be any more transparent in your support of George? Your commentary on yesterday's press conference by George's former legal counsel revealed more about where you heart is on this case than you probably intended to do. Please, give us a credible interview of George's brother and ask some substantial questions beyond allowing him to paint such a saccrin sympathetic picture of his brother.
