Fla. Gov. Scott meets with Fla. Capitol protesters

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) — Florida Gov. Rick Scott is telling protesters that he will not ask lawmakers to revamp the state’s self-defense laws.

Scott returned to the state Capitol late Thursday and met for nearly an hour with seven members of the group that has been staging a protest in his office for three straight days.

During the meeting, those present talked about the verdict in the George Zimmerman murder trial as well as racial profiling they said they had witnessed.

They asked the Republican governor to show “leadership” by calling a special session.

Scott said he planned to call for a day of unity Sunday, and would be willing to listen to their ideas on how to deal with racial profiling. But he said he had no plans to call a special session.
