Zimmerman trial

Police and community activists around Florida are preparing for the possibility of mass protests if George Zimmerman is acquitted of killing Trayvon Martin. Police are on standby as Zimmerman’s trial closes and the jury gets the case.

For months, officials in the city of Sanford and across South Florida have been working with pastors and youth counselors to stress a non-violent approach if Zimmerman walks free. And police all over the state are joining in the effort.
