Trayvon Protesters Shut Down Sanford PD
Protesters closed the Sanford Police Department.
The police department in Sanford, Fla., was forced to close on Monday because of a group of protesters who marched from Daytona Beach to block the departmentâ€™s doors in protest of the shooting of Trayvon Martin. The 40-mile march took three days.
According to ClickOrlando, none of the 50 members of the group, who call themselves the Dream Defenders, were arrested for blocking the police department entrance.
â€œThe city of Sanford hopes the actions of the students will be as peaceful and orderly as the previous rallies and marches have been,” said Sanford city manager Norton Bonaparte Jr.Â “We want to be accommodating to all our visitors proving they act in a manner that is respectful to the people of the city.”
State Attorney Angela Corey who has been assigned as a special prosecutor in the case said on Monday that she will not use a grand jury in investigating whether George Zimmerman acted in self-defense.
Corey reportedly addressed the protesters earlier in the day, asking them for patience and ensuring them that a thorough investigation is underway.
