Demonstrations Stay Mostly Peaceful Over Zimmerman Aquittal
SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Demonstrators around the country mostly protested peacefully against a Florida jury's acquittal of George Zimmerman in the shooting death of Trayvon Martin. But in California police arrested at least seven. Los Angeles protestors walked onto Interstate 10, blocking traffic for half an hour. Another group nearby pelted police officers with rocks and flashlight batteries. In downtown Oakland a small crowd broke windows and spray painted graffiti.
