Sorry, there are no polls available at the moment.

Citizens poured in Leimert Park Thursday evening to call for justice in the case of an unarmed teen gunned down in a gated Florida community by a volunteer captain of a neighborhood watch group.

“The meaning of what this moment is, for the young African American who could have similar experience in different areas of the world,” said Ishmael Kannike, father and demonstrator.

The shooting of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin last month in Sanford, Fla. has sparked reaction across the country. Neighborhood watch volunteer George Zimmerman, 28, has said he shot Martin, who was visiting the home of his father’s girlfriend in the gated community, in self-defense.

“It’s been over a month since this young man was murdered,” said Rev. Lewis Logan, with Ruach Christian Church. “His blood still cries from the ground.”

Hip-hop arist and activist Yolanda “YoYo” Whitaker used social media to draw friends and fans in LA to rally for Trayvon.

    “Neighborhood watch volunteer George Zimmerman, 28, has said he shot Martin, who was visiting the home of his father’s girlfriend in the gated community, in self-defense.”

    EDIT – Martin was NOT visiting the home of his father’s girlfriend… he was pounding Zimmerman’s skull into the sidewalk when he was shot.
