Hal Uhrig, a lawyer and former Gainesville, Florida, police officer who is representing George Zimmerman made an appearance on CBS’s “This Morning” last week and shared a glimpse of their defense.

“We’re familiar with the Shaken Baby Syndrome,” said Uhrig on CBS This Morning. “You shake a baby, the brain shakes around inside the skull. You can die when someone’s pounding your head into the ground.”

“He didn’t commit any crime,” Unrig went on to say. “He was attacked, broke his nose, hit his head into the ground and he defended himself. That’s not against the law.”
