There are new signs in Sanford, Florida of the frustration boiling over as the city and the nationa await a decision in the Trayvon Martin case, more than a month after the teenager was killed.
"We thought they had enough on day one for the police to make their arrest, but in the 43-days it has been and counting we think the evidence has unfolded to give a plethora of evidence to arrest George Zimmerman," Martin family attorney Benjamin Crump said Tuesday.
Special Prosecutor Angela Corey will make that call on her own.
"By not going to the grand jury, she's decided this is a decision she can make. It's going to be a decision that she can justify, without needing any cover," says former US Attorney Kendall Coffey.
For the first time since he shot and killed the unarmed teenager, George Zimmerman is now reaching out.
Lawyers confirm a new new website which includes a message to supporters and a solicitation for donations is his.
On Monday protesters closed down the Sanford Police Department for several hours and overnight shots were fired at an unmanned police car parked outside the gated community where Martin was killed, a graphic reminder of the raw emotions more than a month after the shooting.
