Last night there were protests in the country against a jury’s decision to acquit George Zimmerman of murder or even manslaughter charges in the shooting death of Trayvon Martin.
There were scattered, mostly peaceful protests and vigils around Los Angeles overnight in the hours after the verdict was announced, and there are expected to be more today. Protesters challenged Zimmerman’s claim that he shot Martin, an unarmed African-American teen, in self-defense. They complain that the justice system is rigged against the young black male. They’re also calling for the repeal of Florida’s far-reaching self-defense laws.
