Las Vegas, NV (KTNV) -- Anger over the verdict in the George Zimmerman trial in Sanford, Florida, spilled over onto the streets of Las Vegas Tuesday night.
A protest march down Las Vegas Boulevard to New York-New York began at Las Vegas Boulevard and Fremont Street.
Many in the crowd demanded justice for Trayvon Martin, dressed in hoodies, and armed with Skittles and cans of Arizona Iced Tea, and called for an end to all Stand Your Ground laws across the U.S.
Tonya Clemons said, "It's not right for messed up laws to dictate our rights as human beings."
Shock over the verdict turned to outrage that brought many to tears and fueled fears that the not guilty verdict that set George Zimmerman free could set a deadly precedent.
When asked whether he felt threatened, a young black man said yes.
When asked about the state of race relations in America, teacher Adam Berger replied, "I think we're still at a crossroads from where we need to be."
Two more protests are planned for Friday and Saturday. As soon as Action News obtains the details, we will be posted here on the website.
