In a show of solidarity for slain Florida teen Trayvon Martin, some California Democrats donned gray hooded sweatshirts over their suits and ties during Thursday morning's legislative session.

The Sacramento Bee reports that State Sens. Curren Price, Juan Vargas, and Senate President Pro Tem Darrell Steinberg were among those who paid tribute to Martin with sweatshirts with "In memory of Trayvon Martin" printed on the back.

In the above video, State Senator Curren Price calls the session to order with a statement of the facts of Martin's death when "neighborhood watchman" George Zimmerman shot him, twice, as he walked home from a near-by store to buy Skittles and iced tea. Zimmerman has claimed self-defense, and has not yet been charged with any crime.
