Spontaneous protests broke out across the country on Sunday as people reacted to the “not guilty” verdict in the trial of George Zimmerman, who shot and killed 17-year-old Trayvon Martin on February 26, 2012. Demonstrators focused on racial profiling, gun violence and racial bias in the justice system. Below are scenes from some of those protests.
