Thousands gathered in downtown Minneapolis to protest the acquittal of Trayvon Martin's shooter, George Zimmerman. The protestors came out to show their support for Martin and several local figures including Terrance Franklin and CeCe McDonald, by wearing hoodies, bearing signs, and walking in solidarity. We collected photos of the most powerful and moving signs that highlight some of the sentiments at yesterday's event.

The only way to really know what happened that night is to ask Obama. I am sure he has listed to every call Zimmerman made since that night.

This kills me. No one was there that night...none of you. You will never know what happened. You're all pissed off because the media wanted you pissed off. Now you all take to the streets calling for justice. Why? What about the thousand of other murders that happen every day in almost every major city in America? Zimmerman had his day in court, the facts and evidence was heard, and he was found not guilty. Time to move on. You want to be mad? Get mad at your government and your media for race baiting and turning everyone in America against each other. That's what you should all be pissed about. The media played you all like a violin and you put rosin on the bow yourselves. This was not a race issue. The media made it one.....think for yourselves people.....please. Just ask yourself, "why was this the case the media and government wanted you to focus on"........

They Both lost their lives that night! Keep up the hate people & things will never get better. No one was their to say who is guilty or innocent, Except Zimmerman and Martin and one is dead. If he is guilty he will pay eventually, If he is innocent you people full of hate, will make him pay anyway. Its a sad country full of hate we live in.

Why does nobody protest when dozens of people are gunned down in Chicago every week?

I understand where you're coming from Sammy, but you can't really say "If you're not, you'll be okay..." He wasn't, and he's certainly not okay.

What the fuck does marriage equality have to do with this?  Or was it just a good place to show up and protest in general?

Fucking lame. How do these people think they know more than the jury who actually heard the case? Being white makes you invincible? Really? So Zimmerman was white? Hmm.. And being female makes you less threatening? Well, let's see, who commits an astounding majority of violent crime? Males. There's nothing at play here that actually concerns race or gender, but fuck all if it isn't a chance for some collectivist assholes to be seen and feel self-righteous and important.

  KSTP's opinion poll showed 70% of the responders favored the verdict. How come all we're hearing from the media is about those who are opposed?

@Ryan Rud why don't you go back to the tattoo shop and waste some more of your parents money

@Ryan Rud Take off the tin foil hat derpster, and step down from atop your king's throne while your at it.  The media acts as a public relations wing of the American government, kind of like the baby bird getting its worm from mother Sam, but they aren't in the business of manufacturing stories that aren't going to get people tuning in to the boob tube.  They simply understand what types of stories will garner attention and they go after them.  As for the "nobody knows what happened" argument, well, that's just a cop out.  Zimmerman hunted this kid down, and when the kid started to retaliate, he shot him.  He was not a police officer, and was told by the police to stop following the kid.  To me, he's a wannabe tough guy, who thought he was gonna save the neighborhood.  Now, a kid is dead, and he would not of been dead if this total ignoramus wasn't out playing cowboys and Indians.  It's a disgrace that this man is going to be back on the streets with a gun.  This country is finished if this is what counts as justice.

@CinBlueland Yeah I was wondering about that one myself...  What's more, is that it was somehow included in a list of the 'most powerful signs..."

 huh?

@Dave2 I'm sure if the racist idiots who think George Zimmerman should go free had a rally it would be news stupid.  Thanks for sharing your very stupid opinion though.
