Protestors stay in Capitol

   Those upset with the verdict in the trial of George Zimmerman say they will not end their protest until Gov. Rick Scott calls a special session to take up the state's "stand your ground" law.
   Protest leaders met Thursday with Scott, but the governor told them he supported the law and would not call a special session.
