George Zimmerman blasts Trayvon Martin while Martin Luther King Jr. bleeds in the background of a new mural unveiled at the state Capitol in Florida in Tallahassee. The 100-foot painting substitutes a mirror for Florida teen's face, framed by a hoodie. Miami artist Huong's not-so-subtle message is spelled out in the title: "We are all Trayvon Martin."

Huong, a Vietnam War refugee and peace activist, has joined a group of protesters called the Dream Defenders camped at the capital hoping to persuade Gov. Rick Scott to change the Stand Your Ground law highlighted by the Martin case.
