Posted on 07/15/2013 8:33:17 AM PDT by SeekAndFind
George Zimmerman was found not guilty Saturday of the second-degree murder of Trayvon Martin in Sanford, Fla., and many are not happy about it.
Protests are taking place in cities across the U.S., and one of the larger protests is happening in New York City's Times Square. Thousands have taken to the streets to protest the verdict, shouting "No justice" and "Trayvon."
There's a large police presence to ensure the protests remain peaceful, and so far they have been. The protests, which began in Union Square, morphed into a march headed towards Times Square.
About 1,000 to 2,000 of the demonstrators abandoned the protest site at Union Square to march in the streets toward Times Square, slowing or stopping traffic.
Police attempted to funnel the crowd into controlled lanes but were unable to. Police halted the march about eight blocks short of Times Square, which was already packed with tourists, as is typical on a summer evening.
Although police tried to block marchers from moving into Times Square, that effort largely failed.
This is a show of strength, but its also a show of solidarity with the family because last night, what happened, was complete disrespect to them, Imani Henry, an activist with the Peoples Power Assembly, told NBC News. We want to show love and respect to them.
Zimmerman shot and killed Martin in Feb. 2012, claiming self defense after the 17-year-old allegedly attacked him. The six-person jury in his trial were given the option to convict him of the lesser charge of manslaughter, but he was acquitted of all charges.
President Obama called for calm early Sunday after Zimmerman was set free.

WTF? He was a thug who was attacking another person!
I am in the Bizarro World.
Looks like a lot of white overseers were on hand to apply the whip.
1000 to 2000 people in the middle of Manhattan on the Day After is an EPIC FAIL!
Trayvon got his justice.
rent a mob.
Did the State Dept organize it?
Justice, it seems, is very fluid to them.
Current vid cam on Times Square shows situation normal.
Most of these people have no idea what the facts of the case were and frankly don’t even care. All they are looking for is an excuse to protest or riot.
can you imagine what the crowds would do if you cut off their welfare checks?.......this is why the administration continues to “feed” them. Otherwise they would take to the streets....
Occupy crowd joining in.
Career Protestors without jobs
Black Appeasement Syndrome’ running wild everywhere...
What you are watching is the democrat party driving blacks to the polls. This also will be done with gays, women and Hispanics.
If the GOP had any sense they would support GZ as a Hispanic.
Lots of Lilly White Lib legs in that photo.
Commie organizers in action.
And it has a leader, of course.
Currently residing at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave.
With plenty of Bizarro Sheeple to support him.
In the Obmanation
Allegedly? I do believe it has been testified without argument against that St. Skittles attacked Zimmerman. There is no allegedly.
So how many Dept of Justice employees were flown in to this protest movement they arranged and funded?
