Orlando, FL -- Trayvon Martin's parents have formally asked the department of justice to investigate this case, because they believe local police and prosecutors have not done their job. The admitted gunman remains free, and this case has growing overtones of race and injustice.

Hundreds of Martin's supporters marched near Orlando on Sunday, outraged that three weeks after the shooting death of the 17 year-old, police have not arrested the gunman.

Martin was visiting relatives on February 26th, walking in their subdivision on his way back from a 7-11 store, and unarmed. It was 7 pm. George Zimmerman, a community watch member, thought Martin looked suspicious and called police.

Two minutes after Zimmerman was told police would handle it, seven neighbors began calling 9-1-1 about hearing screams, and gun fire.
