California - Protesters angered by the acquittal of George Zimmerman held largely peaceful demonstrations in three California cities, but broke windows and started small street fires Oakland, police said.

The gatherings Saturday night ranged from a few dozen to a couple hundred people turning out to protest the verdict in the Florida courtroom over the death of Trayvon Martin, and police said some of the demonstrations continued into the early hours Sunday.

The Oakland police dispatch office said about 100 people protested, with some in the crowd breaking windows on businesses and starting small fires in the streets. As the protest wound down with the crowd dispersing, the office said that as of 2 a.m. PDT it had no word of any arrests.

Local media reports said some Oakland marchers vandalized a police squad car and police formed a line to block the protesters’ path.

The Oakland Tribune said some windows on the newspaper’s downtown offices were broken, and footage from a television helicopter show people attempting to start fires in the street and spray painting anti-police graffiti.

Protesters also reportedly burned an American and a California state flag and spray painted Alameda County’s Davidson courthouse.

The Oakland demonstration followed a raucous but largely peaceful one in San Francisco. Police say officers escorted demonstrators as they marched on the city’s Mission District. The group was dispersed by 10 p.m.

The verdict also sparked protests in Los Angeles, where demonstrators gathered in Leimert Park, the city’s historically black neighborhood.

Police said that about 200 protesters gathered for what they termed a peaceful vigil.

City News Service said that at one point a smaller group stopped an Expo Line train as police urged them to return to the nearby park. But police couldn’t immediately confirm that report.

Lt. Andy Neiman of the LAPD Media Relations Department said another group of 50 to 100 demonstrators started marching around midnight.

“There was a period where crowds were running among vehicles, but police dissuaded them,” he said.

Neiman said he knew of no arrests.

Officials said police called in officers from around the city to keep a watch on demonstrators.

More than 40 people gathered at Sacramento City Hall, and the Sacramento Bee reported that protesters chanted: “What do we want? Justice. When do you we want it? Now. For who? Trayvon.”

A banner behind speakers read, “No justice, no peace!”

Even though the blacks are not as radical like in the sixties they use that historical image as a threat to governments. No government wants its cities burnt down so they will allow a federal trial to go forth on the zimmerman case. We chareidim should learn from the black activists. We can stop the draft of yeshiva boys as well as get funding if we utilize passed images of large rallies. We can utilize the pictures of large rallies of the past of orthodox jews protesting against secular laws in israel as well. Everything is perception. If politician believe we are a force to reckon with they will fold like cheap cameras. There would never be a black in the white house if they acted like the modern orthodox apologetic leaders who cow tow jewish values. You need to speak up and protest like our leaders did on issues of shabbos,forced autopsies, in the not so long distant past. People like rabbi Amrom Blau,chazon ish,Satmar rebbe and others led the way. Today we have far more dangerous issues from gay parades,drafting yeshiva boys to destroying yeshiva education by forcing secular subjects to be thought. Learn from the black activist and we can turn israel into a complete frum society. Keep fighting with no compromises.

Of course they're rioting, but when hundreds of 17 year old black youths are killed by gang violence no one says a word. It's unfortunate that Treyvon was killed, but based on the testimony; Zimmerman didn't violently gun him down as some people would like you to believe. Ethically, Zimmerman committed a terrible crime however legally he was justified.

Strange that when a Black is aquitted of killing a Black there is no protest. Most of the young Black men killed in this country are killed by other Blacks. The news media should never given this local Florida shooting such coverage.

How was Zimmerman justified? He shot and killed someone who did nothing wrong. In his 911 call, Zimmerman said that he looked suspicious and like he was up to something, or on drugs. At one point he said that Martin was approaching him, then reported that he's running away. So WHY did Zimmerman leave his car with a gun? The dispatcher told him that the police were on the way and when George admitted to 911 that he was following the boy, the dispatcher told him, "OK, we don't need you to do that."
Even in a gated community, walking around, appearing suspicious, and looking at all the houses is not illegal. Creepy maybe, but that's why Zimmerman called the police. Neighborhood watchers are only supposed to report suspicious activity to authorities. Zimmerman should've stayed in his car and left the rest to the police.

They are right. All illegal protesters should get arrested and convicted to the max of the law. This is a country that has laws written in the book and it should apply firmly on the ones that violate them, and specially no mercy for instigators.

The LAW is quite simple! If someone, no matter what color, jumps you, is beating the stuffing out of you and you fear for your life AS IS WHAT HAPPENED here, you have a right to shoot if necessary. Martin jumped Zimmerman & cold cocked him from behind when Zimmerman was walking back to his car. You want to blame someone, blame the SIX FOOT THREE INCH black kid with muscles who was beating Zimmerman in MMA (Mixed Martial Arts) style. Martin was far from innocent here & unfortunately for him, he ended up dead.

He was NO angel DESPITE what you are being fed by rabble rousers from Not Too Sharpton & Barack Hussein Obama's regime.

Martin started beating him up.
Not guilty also means that prosecution couldn't prove it beyond reasonable doubt. If Zimmerman had a Hispanic name, as he is Hispanic, would there be such protests? Riots?

You are mixing two things up. Under Florida law the jury found that Zimmerman was justified. They found that the prosecution did not prove beyond a reasonable doubt that it was self defense. Note that self defense is defined by statute. You are mixing up legal and moral justification.
Read the charge by the judge and you will get an idea of why the jury came to the verdict they did.

Seriously? You don't remember the riots and violence that went down throughout the South and in other places (like Boston) as well after the Supreme Court handed down their decision in Brown vs. Board of Ed.? These disturbances went on for years, and they were vicious.

And in Israel certain segments of the population make a habit of rioting in the streets, throwing stones and other objects, setting fires, etc., because they don't like certain court decisions involving the draft, school curricula, women's prayers, etc.

Your racial implications are both inaccurate and way out of line.

I believe that what happened to trayvon was terrible and had Zimmerman listened to the suggestion of the dispatcher and let the cops take care of things, none of this would have occurred. but, mr Sharpton, justice was done according to the laws of the land. if you don't like the laws, there are political and legal ways of changing them. rallying/rioting is not justice

To me it looks like youre tottaly incapable of thinking rationally,the whole problem is not with zimmerman doing what he did getting out of a car and confronting martin the problem is once you hit someone and keep on hitting him ,so try to use youre brain because you sound like a moron and unthinking one at that.

There is no evidence to support this. If Zimmerman would've stayed in his car and not exited his car to follow Martin (911 dispatcher told him not to follow), there would not have been a confrontation.
I don't know if Martin was an angel or not; and from inside his car, neither did Zimmerman. What I do know is that Martin did not break any law and yet Zimmerman was following him in his car. Zimmerman told 911 his number to give arriving police in order to call him; and yet he continued following Martin and claims to have gotten out of his car to look at a street sign. There's no evidence proving who attacked first.

"unfortunately for him, he ended up dead." This is really offensive. You make it sound like the kid slipped in a puddle. He was shot at point blank range in the heart with a 9mm semi automatic pistol.

Consider for just a moment how your 17 year-old would react if an adult followed him in a car while walking home from the convenience store.

It is because of people like # 12 that believe they understand the law and know the facts that they therefore convicted Zimmerman prior to him even standing trial.

So a watchman following someone in a car is a crime? Zimmerman getting out of his car to see where Martin was, is a crime? Especially when the 911 operator inquired as to where Martin was at the time?

You probably beleive the original NBC audio of the 911 call, the one where they editied lots of dispatcher questions to make it sound like Zimmerman was hunting down some po lil black boy?

The problem really began when Martin cold cocked Zimmerman from behind and beat him silly.

Yes, this was unfortunate and if you are a wuss who has problems with that, well its YOUR problem.

Trayvon Martin was not high at the time of his death.
The toxicology report from Trayvon's autopsy showed only trace amounts of THC (1.5 nanograms per milliter of blood) in his blood and urine. Supposedly this is consistent with the amount that can remain in the system for weeks. People who are high typically have 100 to 200 nanograms per milliter of blood of THC in their blood and urine. It's also worth mentioning that people high on marijuana very seldom become violent.

Actually, Zimmerman's drug use should come into question. Paramedics at the scene reported that he was taking Librax and Temazepam at the time of the incident. Later reports also mention Adderall.

I'm tired of hearing from
those on this site who constantly berate Zimmerman for following Trayvon Martin. It is not illegal to follow someone, and ask them what they are doing in a given area. All Trayvon Martin had to do was tell Zimmerman that he was staying in the complex with his Father. Instead, Martin chose to attack Zimmerman, and wouldn't stop when asked to do so, by a witness. Where I used to live (gated communities), I was asked by security, as well as a resident who I was. I didn't go around attacking those who asked me those questions. Also, let us stop portraying Trayvon Martin as some "child" choir or altar boy. He was nearly six feet tall, and muscular. In addition, he had trained in mixed martial arts. There is no doubt that he would have either killed George Zimmerman by bashing his head into the concrete, or left him in a permanent vegetative state. I remember that during the Harlem Riots of 1964, some gentleman was also throwing some objects from the roof of an apartment building onto the cops. When he refused to stop doing that, they had no choice, but to shoot and kill him. Case closed!
