WISCONSIN NEWS BRIEFS: Protest over Martin-Zimmerman case in Milwaukee
MILWAUKEE - Hundreds of protesters gathered outside of the federal courthouse in Milwaukee yesterday, protesting the acquittal of George Zimmerman.
The protest was part of a national chain of rallies over the weekend, calling for “Justice for Trayvon Martin”. Protesters at the event say they demand federal civil rights charges be filed against Zimmerman and that changes are made to self-defense laws. 32 states, including Wisconsin, have some form of the stand-your-ground law.
