Sanford Police Department: 10 k Could Attend Trayvon Martin Rally in Florida

 Police expect as many as 10,000 people to attend a rally in Sanford, Florida today, on the one-month anniversary of the shooting death of Trayvon Martin. The national anger over the shooting of Martin, who was shot and killed while walking home from a store where he purchased candy and tea, continues to escalate. Activists are attempting to pressure law enforcement authorities to arrest and prosecute George Zimmerman, who admits to shooting Martin but claims it was in self-defense. To date, no arrests have been made in relation to the fatal shooting.
The incident has brought national attention to Florida's Stand Your Ground law, which critics say enables violent criminals to get away with murder. The shooting has also brought increased attention to the role race plays in violent crime.
