Two women are arrested as hundreds of Houstonians rallied in support of Trayvon Martin Tuesday. The group marched from downtown's Criminal Justice Center to the Federal Courthouse and on to City Hall where the women interrupted a Council meeting.
Still angry about George Zimmerman's not guilty verdict, protesters stormed the doors of the federal courthouse demanding justice for the Florida teen gunned down a year ago.

"Trayvon Martin case is wrong on levels because it’s a problem with the color of his skin, that's what got him killed, he was profiled," one woman told KTRH News. "
Another woman, a young Latino, claims injustice is rampant in everyday life.
"If you step out of line, if you don't pay you're rent, you're going to have the police come kick you out," she said. "If you come out like we're doing today and you're upset and you step out into the street, you've got these cops on horses ready to stop our heads into the ground."
Local activist Quannel X says their protests will continue this Sunday in Houston's River Oaks neighborhood.
"The Sanford, Florida of racial profiling in Houston is River Oaks," Quannel tells KTRH News. "We want to say racial profiling will come down in all affluent neighborhoods, that young African-American males have a right to be in any neighborhood they desire to be just so long as they are within the law, and not breaking any laws."
Activists say they've gathered 500 petition signatures on behalf of the NAACP, urging the Justice Department to indict George Zimmerman on civil charges.
