law & order trayvon martin case

The Trayvon Martin shooting is getting a ripped-from-the-headlines “Law & Order: Special Victims Unit” treatment.

Cybill Shepherd says she plays a vigilante-like character loosely based on Florida neighborhood watch gunman George Zimmerman.  Shepherd’s character has killed a black teen named Mehcad, although until the episode airs in October, the details will remain unclear.

In a scene that was filmed yesterday, Shepherd and her legal team are leaving court and they’re swarmed by a group of reporters and confronted with angry people waving signs similar to the ones seen at dozens of rallies held in honor of Martin over the last year.
