Trayvon Martin cause gains support with rally at city hall

“I came here from New Jersey originally for vacation,” said Ron Hutchinson, age 20. “Due to all of the commotion about Trayvon, I decided that I wanted to let the people know that I’m here to stand by them. Unjust things are never good.”
The majority of the rally goers were of the same opinion about the killing of Martin being unjust. The group spent the majority of the march shouting various chants such as “no justice, no peace,” “jail him now; enough is enough” and “justice now” with enthusiasm.
“It’s not fair for this man to kill a kid who just went to get a pack of skittles,” said Rodney Hillman. “The fact that he’s still able to roam around is not right. If it were my son, I would want something done about this.”
While many were there to voice their opinions about an arrest of Zimmerman made, others were looking for a closer look at our state’s laws.
“I just think that the ‘Stand Your Ground’ law should be severely reevaluated,” said Rose Saint Paul, a 20-year-old student at Seminole State College. “I feel very strongly about that.”
