Trayvon Martin's father says his heart is broken but not his faith. Protesters in Los Angeles and Oakland blocked traffic and clashed with police in a day of protests in California against the acquittal of George Zimmerman in the shooting death of Trayvon Martin. Several people were arrested in Los Angeles. Los Angeles police said they began making arrests, after about 80 protesters gathered in Hollywood on Sunset Boulevard and an unlawful assembly was declared. News of the verdict in the George Zimmerman trial was greeted with disappointment and some anger in the Goldsboro neighborhood of Sanford, as residents said they believed police do not adequately respond to violence in their part of town and that justice is not meted out equally. A jury of six women affirmed Zimmerman?s argument that he feared for his life when he shot the unarmed, 17-year-old Martin in a nearby gated neighborhood. ?It makes me feel like if I?m in need of justice, I won?t win,? local resident Kathy McGill said of the verdict. ?I thought it would be better.? less
