Demonstrators rallied across the country after former neighborhood watch volunteer George Zimmerman was acquitted Saturday of murder, and manslaughter, in the killing of unarmed teenager Trayvon Martin.
Martin's relatives spoke out on the verdict as well, but their message was one of healing. CNN’s John Zarrella has more on their response.
“The message from Lesha Felton, Trayvon Martin's cousin was clear, direct,” Zarrella reports.
"We don't want this to happen to anyone else again no reason this happens to any other families,” Felton said. “No one should have to go through this."
At Sunday’s service at the church where Martin’s family are members but were not in attendance, "there were certainly feelings of hurt, sadness, disappointment amongst the congregation, anger too,” Zarrella says. “But the bottom line, church members say everyone now must move on.”
The anger in the streets is ongoing in the wake of the not guilty verdict delivered in the George Zimmerman Trial.
