At first glance, a new, controversial PSA by the Coalition to Stop Gun Violence (CSGV) seems like just another PSA. But at it’s core, it cuts to the heart. This video in support of the movement to end stand your ground laws goes through the heart and chills to the bone.
Using audio from calls to police on the Trayvon Martin shooting as shock value, this video also offers stark, creepy images to powerfully reenact the tragic incident. As haunting music plays, we begin to visualize a hoodie-wearing body count multiplying, each signifying a state with stand your ground laws. Some are saying the video goes to far.
