More than two weeks after George Zimmerman was acquitted charges for the fatal shooting of Trayvon Martin, a group of protesters continue to stand their ground in the hallway near Governor Scott’s office in Tallahassee.

“We’ve really made ourselves at home here waiting on the governor to show some leadership,” said Philip Agnew, the director of the Dream Defenders, the protesters that remain in Tallahassee.

The protesters, after Governor Rick Scott continues to deny their demands to call a special legislative session, have taken matters in their own hands by holding a People’s Session.

Rev. Jesse Jackson gave the protesters a hand Tuesday who visited the students and pledged to join them in sleeping at the Capitol as they continue to bring attention to their cause.

The People’s Session was considerably shorter than an official session. It took about 15 minutes for the opening day processions, held in the Senate side of the historic Capitol. The normal moment of prayer was observed and the Pledge of Allegiance recited, and then a series of resolutions — more nonbinding than usual because of the nature of the event — were approved unanimously by the group of protesters.

One called for Trayvon Martin Day to be observed every Feb. 5. Another called for the pardoning of Marissa Alexander.......

I’m sure they want money or some program, or a law making it illegal to shoot a black attacker.

“Trayvon Martin day ... every February 5th.”

As far as I’m concerned, every day I strap on my piece is ‘TM day.’
Gotta go around armed. Can’t have anything nice, unless it’s locked up.

If Scott was any kind of leader he’d have ‘bum-rushed’ these clowns out the door days ago.
This isn’t ‘civil rights’; this is horse s***.

Someone at the Capitol just needs to play the tape of Zimmerman’s walkthrough over and over all day long on the speakers at the Capitol — it will drive them out of there like garlic to vampire.

Her conviction was proper but she didn’t deserve 20 years. I’d go for a commutation.

About every hour they demonstrate, somewhere in the U.S. a young, black child will be shot and killed by another young, black child.

Trayvon got justice twice, once at the point of a gun and the second time at a trial by jury.

In reality, the Constitution calls for a trial by “a jury of one’s peers,” but I guess they couldn’t find 6 brain dead, dead end, thugs to do the work.

Why hasn’t the FL Governor had the State Troopers drag these dregs of society out of the Capitol so normal business there can be done?

Scott is a wimp!

Democrats are Law-Less

Republicans are Ball-Less

If this doesn't show both sides, I don't know what does.
