• Martin parents support Davis' parents following trial


    JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - Trayvon Martin's parents are giving their support to the parents of the teenager who was shot and killed after an argument over loud music in Jacksonville

    They said the killing of Jordan Davis was “yet another reminder that in Florida, racial profiling and stereotypes may serve as a basis for illegitimate fear, and the shooting and killing of young teenagers."

    On Saturday a judge declared a mistrial for the first-degree murder charge against Michael Dunn, the man who claimed to shoot Davis in self-defense.

    Dunn was found guilty on his attempted murder charges.

    The trial was the latest Florida case to raise questions about self-defense and race; Dunn is white and the teen was black.

    Martin was 17-years-old when he was shot and killed by George Zimmerman in February 2012.

    Zimmerman was acquitted of any crime last July.

    Prosecutoes marched outside the Jacksonville courthouse withint minutes of the jury's verdict in the Dunn case on Saturday.

    They marched from the courthouse to the office of State Attorney Angela Cory and left behind posters calling for her resignation.

    They said they blame her for the inability to get a conviction on the first-degree murder charge.
