SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - A San Diego lawmaker has joined others in expressing outrage over George Zimmerman's acquittal in the shooting death of Trayvon Martin.

State Assemblywoman Shirley Weber wants to call attention to what she says is a miscarriage of justice.

Weber appeared with supporters at the Hall of Justice Thursday morning. She says the system failed to provide justice for Martin's family.

Other speakers talked about the underlying issues in the case, including racial profiling and inequality.
