JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- Anger after the verdict in the George Zimmerman trial spilled over into a neighborhood in north Jacksonville.

Someone spray-painted derogatory words about Trayvon Martin on a fence along Blossom Ridge Drive, just off Dunn Avenue.

Neighbors said the graffiti likely went up overnight. JSO arrived Wednesday afternoon to cover it up.

Bad behavior is bad behavior...on either side of the fence. 'Help' like that we don't need. Lose the racist attitudes and bring back America.

What talking about his bad history. Maybe his trying to buy street guns, bragging about hurting snitches, maybe it was about him being thief and liar caught in school with jewelry? Why on earth would anyone think negatively about a 2 bit gangsta?
