On the night of February 26, 2012, in Sanford, Florida, neighborhood watch coordinator fatally shot 17-year-old African American high school student Trayvon Martin. In the weeks that followed, the country erupted in social unrest. Here, during a protest in Los Angeles, a citizen calls out for justice and the arrest and prosecution of Zimmerman who had recently been released due to, "lack of evidence for a federal hate crime prosecution."
