Tallahassee attorneys march to Gov. Scott's office, chanting "Justice for Trayvon"

About 50 lawyers marched to Gov. Rick Scott's office on Tuesday, asking for increased scrutiny in the case of Trayvon Martin, a 17-year-old who was shot to death in Sanford, Florida.

Tuesday's protest in Tallahassee was one of several taking place across the country in the wake of Martin's death.

The group asked Scott to start a task force on the issue of racial profiling, and give state law enforcement agencies authority to intervene in the case.
