Local gatherings call Zimmerman verdict unjust
BATON ROUGE- At least two groups gathered Monday evening in protest of the George Zimmerman verdict.
Activists said the not guilty decision meant justice was not done.
"There has to be a change... this has to be addressed," said Mary Triplett. Triplett joined a few others who said they believe the justice system is broken.
"Our black men and boys don't stand a chance the way the system is set up now," she said.
The rain may have kept more people from attending the demonstration in downtown Baton Rouge.
More people gathered at another location on Florida Boulevard. People had similar signs asking "is it 'justice' or 'just us?'"
