Houstonians Shut Down 288 In Trayvon Martin Protests
Hundreds of Houstonians peacefully marched through Third Ward earlier this evening in the wake of the George Zimmerman verdict. The march continued on towards a stretch of 288 where protesters blocked vehicles and continued moving in anger, disgust and pain over the verdict. Carrying a coffin, protesters walked across Southmore and downward onto the highway in a sea of colors and races.
Zimmerman was acquitted of second degree murder in the February 26 shooting death of teenage Trayvon Martin.
