Trayvon Martin supporters rally in Tallahassee

Posted: Updated:
TALLAHASSEE (FOX 13) -

Tallahassee is the latest setting for Trayvon Martin supporters rallying against the jury's not guilty verdict in the George Zimmerman murder trial.

Dream Defenders, a civil rights group, gathered at the state Capitol on Tuesday morning to remember Martin, demanding to see Gov. Rick Scott, though he is currently in New York.

The group wants to urge the governor to call a special legislative session to create a "Trayvon Martin Civil Rights Act" for Florida.

They say the verdict is an injustice and suggest it shows that Florida does not value the lives of its children.

Dorothy Inman-Johnson, one of Martin's supporters at the rally, said she fears a dangerous future for her children.

"I have little grandsons that I feel that verdict sent a message here in Florida, that it's open season on our children with what happened to Trayvon," she said.
