The protests gripping the Florida Capitol show no signs of ending.

Protestors are angry over the verdict in George Zimmerman’s trial. They have been camping out in Tallahassee since July 16 and their numbers are growing.

Protestors say they won’t leave until Gov. Rick Scott calls a special session and asks lawmakers to repeal the state’s Stand Your Ground Law. Since the protest started, the state has spent nearly $46,000 on overtime and more than $116,000 on security.
