Citizens are planning to stage a demonstration Sunday in the River Oaks neighborhood in response the Trayvon Martin shooting verdict. Demonstrators accuse the affluent neighborhood of having a history of racial profiling. A Facebook page has been created to plan a counter protest with gun owners with concealed handgun permits encouraged to bring their weapons. This has prompted Houston Police Department Chief Charles McClelland to warn counter protestors not to attend and to remain peaceful. Trayvon Martin was shot by neighborhood watch volunteer George Zimmerman last year. Zimmerman was found not guilty this past Sunday and protests have been taking place around the country since.
