KINGSBRIDGE - The not guilty verdict for George Zimmerman in the murder trial of Florida teen Trayvon Martin is still haunting some Bronx residents.

To show support for Martin, his family and racially profiled teens, Bronx residents held hands along Kingsbridge Road to spread the message that race is not a crime.

Some people at the rally say they see Martin’s death as an example of racial profiling, which they say they encounter often through stop-and-frisk.

The attendees are also working on a petition to be sent to the governor of Florida, asking him to legally address the issue of racial profiling.
