JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- As the hours mounted without a verdict in the Michael Dunn trial, tensions among the protesters outside the Duval County Courthouse began to rise.

A long-running feud between Kenneth Adkins with Operation Save Our Sons and New Black Panther Party leader Mikhail Muhammad simmered over. Muhammad caught wind that Adkins had criticized the black separatist rhetoric he spouted over a megaphone.

“You ain't here for justice! Are you here for justice,” Muhammad shouted.

“You should be ashamed of yourself,” Adkins said in response.

Other protesters chanted and sang songs in an effort to defuse the situation and call attention back to the issue at hand.

Officers with the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office moved in to keep a closer eye on things, but did not intervene. They maintained a heightened presence around the courthouse throughout the day.
