Rallies for Trayvon Martin continued in U.S. cities from coast to coast on Monday, the third night after George Zimmerman's acquittal of murdering the Florida 17-year-old.
Since a six-woman jury came to its verdict in Seminole County, Fla., on Saturday evening, demonstrations have spread across the country.
Some of the most dramatic occurred Sunday evening, when demonstrators swarmed New York City's Times Square; blocked a freeway and other streets in Los Angeles; and set fire to a flag in Oakland. Protests around the country were largely peaceful, however.
Officials prepared for similar events Monday evening in Atlanta, Minneapolis, Houston and elsewhere, as well as Los Angeles and New York.
