With the recently reached "not guilty" verdict in the polarizing George Zimmerman case still being debated across the nation, this evening Piers Morgan invites Kim Goldman to join him with unique perspective and candid insight on captivating legal cases.
The sister of the late Ron Goldman, Kim's experience going through the infamous O.J. Simpson trial has lead her to become an ardent victim’s rights activist. Nearly two decades since what was then known as the "trial of the century," tonight Goldman reflects on a new century, and the new trial that has grabbed nearly as many headlines.
Comparing her brother's case to the George Zimmerman trial, this evening's guest allows that both have sparked a heated national debate, in particular with regard to race. However, in her mind, the comparison is unfair:
“I don’t think race is the center,” she says, speaking of the Zimmerman trial.
Continuing her conversation with the "Piers Morgan Live" host, Goldman insists that "our cases were drastically different.”
Despite plenty of focus having been paid to races of the key players in both trials, Goldman is calling for a broader viewpoint:
“I don’t believe this was racially charged and it’s unfortunate that that’s where the conversation always lies,” she adds. “I think we need to get bigger and more global and think about how we have a lack of regard for human life.”
