The not guilty verdict in the fatal shooting of Trayvon Martin has reshaped a black civil rights convention in Orlando, Florida where delegates are calling for federal charges following a trial they say failed to serve justice. The civil rights activists were gathering for the annual convention of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) just 30 minutes drive from where the murder trial took place when the jury issued its decision on Saturday night. Speeches were hastily re-written, agendas altered and conversation in the halls re-focused. Edward J. Snowden, the fugitive former intelligence contractor, cited fears that he could face torture or the death penalty if extradited to the United States. Fans are still speechless after learning of Cory Monteith sad and untimely passing, but Canadian law enforcement officials are working hard to figure out exactly what happened and why! Sources close to the tragic situation previously said "numerous amounts of alcohol" and other unknown substances were found in the Glee star's Vancouver hotel room, but there don't seem to have been any drugs found at the scene. less
