by Becky Mortensen

MILWAUKEE --- Milwaukee Police responded to two separate protests related to the not guilty verdict in the George Zimmerman trial.

The first protest was on Fratney and Locust around 10:30 p.m. There were about 40 individuals involved in the protest. The gathering was peaceful and police responded as a precaution. No one was arrested and the crowd dispersed after about 30 minutes.

A second protest took place on Hopkins and Hampton around midnight. This protest included between 50 and 75 people.

During this protest one person was arrested for resisting an officer.

George Zimmerman was found not guilty Saturday evening after a long racially charged trial for the shooting of Trayvon Martin.
