Pittsburgh police plan to increase patrols around Mayor Luke Ravenstahl's Fineview home after protesters left signs there early this morning.
Police spokeswoman Diane Richard said the signs appear to have been placed there by Pittsburghers for Trayvon Martin, a group that camped out at Mr. Ravenstahl's office Wednesday.
The group, which has protested following the acquittal of George Zimmerman in the death of Trayvon Martin, issued several demands to city and courthouse officials, including one for the Pittsburgh legal system to investigate its treatment of black people.
Ms. Richard said Pittsburgh police arrived at the mayor's home about 11 a.m. today and, "There were no signs of vandalism to the property and no one reported injured."mobilehome - homepage - neigh_city - breaking
