George Zimmerman is a free man but on Sunday he still faced public outrage over his acquittal. In New York's Union Square people from all walks of life showed their support of Trayvon Martin, the unarmed black teenager Zimmerman shot to death. (SOUNDBITE) (English) DERRICK WILSON, CONSULTANT FROM NEW YORK, SAYING: "When I heard 'not guilty' I was waiting for more because I thought they were saying 'not guilty for second degree (murder). And when there was no more I literally said: 'Where is the rest? What did I miss?" (SOUNDBITE) (English) STACEYANN CHIN, WRITER FROM NEW YORK,SAYING: "I have a black child growing up in New York City. And I felt like I had to get out of my house today, and motivate the household and get everyone out to come and show a presence, some evidence of resistance. " (SOUNDBITE) (English) CARMELLA ALSTON, FASHION HOUSE PRODUCTION COORDINATOR FROM NEW YORK, SAYING: "My great-grandmothers, my grandmothers all marched before with Malcolm, Martin, Reverend Jesse Jackson, and even marched with Al Sharpton. And I didn't think at this age I will have to be going through this as well." President Barack Obama called for "calm reflection" on Sunday, saying the "jury has spoken". But the Justice Department is already looking to see if there's enough evidence to prosecute Zimmerman on civil rights violations in federal court. And civil rights groups call for rallies in support of Trayvon to continue.
