Augusta Group Reacts To George Zimmerman Verdict

Posted: Updated:
Augusta, GA -

Trayvon Martin, 17, was the victim in the George Zimmerman murder trial in Florida.

A big focus was the hoodie Martin was wearing on the night he was killed. The defense team says Zimmerman considered Martin to look suspicious in his attire. So we wondered, will this change the way teens dress, knowing some may speculate they're up to know good?

"Hopefully this will just kind of be something that fades away after a period of time because a lot of people wear hoodies and you can't teach kids not to wear hoodies," says 100 Black Men of Augusta president Herb O'Conner.

U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder spoke Monday, saying Trayon Martin's death provides an opportunity for the nation to speak honestly about complicated and emotionally charged issues.
