HUNTS POINT - A protest ignited by George Zimmerman's acquittal was held at Hunts Point Plaza.
Protesters say that the Florida jury got it wrong, and that Zimmerman should have been held responsible for killing 17-year-old Trayvon Martin. The two-week trial gripped the nation and the outcome has ignited the frustration of many who say Martin was profiled and ultimately killed because he was black.
Dozens of protesters took to the streets Monday to protest the decision all over the country. Neighborhood protesters marched from Hunts Point Plaza to Southern Boulevard to show their opposition to the jury's decision.

The case has also sparked conversation of racial profiling and criticism of the judicial system; many say it doesn't protect minorities and is unfair.
Rev. Al Sharpton says his organization will hold prayer vigils in front of federal buildings in 100 cities this Saturday. Sharpton and the NAACP are calling for federal civil rights charges against Zimmerman.
