From New York to California, outrage over the acquittal in George Zimmerman's murder trial poured from street demonstrations and church pulpits as protesters called for justice for the unarmed youth he killed and demanded federal civil rights charges against him. Protests were scheduled in Boston, Detroit, Baltimore, San Francisco and other cities over the Florida case, which unleashed a national debate over racial profiling, self-defense and equal justice. One protest in California hours after the verdict late Saturday ended with vandalism while police dispersed another crowd by firing beanbag rounds.
