High-School Students Rally for Trayvon

Students at several high schools in Florida left their desks and took to the streets Friday to protest the shooting that left 17-year-old Trayvon Martin dead. The demonstrations took place at seven schools in southern Florida, and a crowd of the students congregated at a Miami-area shopping center, according to Miami-Dade police, who said there were no reports of incidents resulting from the protest. “Our job is to make sure the demonstrations are being run in a safe and peaceful manner,” a police spokesman said.
