SANFORD, Fla. (AP) — As jurors deliberate for a second day in George Zimmerman’s murder trial, two camps await a verdict in front of the Seminole County Courthouse.
A few dozen people gathered there Saturday. A handful support the former neighborhood watch leader, but most say they’re rallying for the family of Trayvon Martin. Zimmerman shot the 17-year-old black teen from Miami last year.
Some people wore hoodies in the sun Saturday, as Martin had when he died. The pro-Zimmerman camp held signs saying things like “We love you George” and “George got hit you must acquit” as the two groups shouted among themselves.
Inside, the jury of six women continues its discussions. Twenty-nine-year-old Zimmerman is charged with second-degree murder, but jurors also can consider manslaughter.
