. first to the news live at 5:30 a.m. at 30 rock here in new york city. today george zimmerman is due in a florida courtroom to face charges of second degree murder in the trayvon martin case. the 28-year-old neighborhood watch volunteer was arrested yesterday, 45 days after shooting the unarmed teen in what he claims was self-defense. zimmerman's lawyer is planning to ask for bail and says his client will plead not guilty. it marks a dramatic new turn in the case which triggered widespread protests and brought issues of race, justice and police conduct to the national stage. martin's parents say the state's stand your ground law which provides wide latitude for people to use deadly force in the face of danger, does not apply to this case. the special prosecutor apparently agreed. >> let me emphasize that we do not prosecute by public pressure or by petition. we prosecute based on the facts of any given case, as well as the laws of the state of florida. we only know one category as prosecutors, that's a "v." it's not a b, not a w, not an h, it's v for victim. that's who we work tirele

combing through past phone calls placed by the shooter george zimmerman to the sanford, florida, police department. it shows zimmerman called the police seven times since august, five times about suspicious young men in the area. but those calls were made to a nonemergency line, not to 911 as previously reported. the recordings also show zimmerman never brought up race until asked by the dispatcher. >> is he white, black or hispanic? >> black. >> mr. zimmerman, can you describe the two individuals? >> two african-american males. >> certainly doesn't mean race was not involved in the shooting of trayvon martin. but this could help his case. although zimmerman called 911 the night of the shooting of trayvon martin, his defense team says the previous calls show the shooter was not motivated by race. it's also important to note that neighborhood watch volunteers were warned by police as recently as this past september not to follow suspects or to carry weapons. two crucial details ignored by zimmerman on the night trayvon martin was killed. >>> still ahead here on "way too early" this morni
