CBS -- Hundreds marched around the country Saturday to protest the not guilty verdict in the George Zimmerman trial. In New York City, Trayvon Martin's mother pledged to make sure no other family experiences her pain. She was alongside celebrity supporters and hundreds who want a federal trial.

More than 100 rallies happened in major cities across the U.S. More demonstrations are planned for next week. George Zimmerman hasn't been seen since a jury found him not guilty. His family insists race did not play a role in the events last February.
