INDIANAPOLIS -- A rally is scheduled in Indianapolis one week after a jury found George Zimmerman not guilty in the death of unarmed teen Trayvon Martin.
The Rev. Al Sharpton's National Action Network organized the "Justice for Trayvon" rallies Saturday outside federal buildings in 100-plus cities, including Indianapolis.

The rallies are intended to press for civil rights charges against Zimmerman.
A pair of federal security vehicles with their emergency lights flashing waited outside the federal courthouse in Indianapolis two hours before noon, when the local rally was set to begin. The only crowd was passengers waiting at a bus stop.
The Florida case has become a flashpoint in debates over guns, race relations and self-defense laws. Zimmerman identifies as Hispanic. Martin was black.
Sharpton wants the Justice Department to pursue a case.
