  • SANFORD, Florida - More people who support George Zimmerman came out to the Seminole County Courthouse on Saturday.

    "I don't think if race was brought into it this never would have gone to trial," Melissa Waz, a Zimmerman supporter who drove from New Port Richey to Sanford.

    She held up a sign that read, "It doesn't matter what this sign says, you'll call it racism anyway."

    There were about two dozen Zimmerman protesters on Saturday compared to the two or three spotted on Friday afternoon when the jury began deliberating.

    The overall number of protesters has grown since Friday evening. About 30 people filled the designated protest area in front of the courthouse on Friday, but on Saturday that number ballooned to about 100 people. Most of those people were supporters of the Martin family, who called for a guilty verdict.

    Martin family attorney Ben Crump said protesters should look no further that the dead teen's parents on how to carry themselves now and after the verdict. 

    "They have been very dignified and graceful, and they ask everybody to do like them. If they can accept the rule of law, we all should be able to accept the rule of law, because that was their son," said Crump.
