According to a USA Today report, the Trayvon Martin murder case has ignited protests, death threats, online campaigns, and become the center of national discussion about race, gun laws and self-defense.

And the trial doesn't even begin until Monday.

For more than a year, supporters of both George Zimmerman and Martin have waged emotionally charged arguments about the deadly encounter Feb. 26, 2012, in this small southern city. The Internet has buzzed with debates about whether Zimmerman was defending himself against an aggressive teen who had begun pummeling him or whether he had profiled and murdered a black, unarmed 17-year-old.
