George Zimmerman is not guilty of murder in the death of Trayvon Martin, a Florida jury decided July 13, 2013. Scores who had gathered outside the Sanford, Florida, courtroom hoping for a guilty verdict reacted in disbelief after word of the decision trickled through the crowd. Hours earlier, they had given speeches, singing songs and chanting, "We want justice." Some appeared angry, others appeared sad.
