MIAMI, Fla.  Demonstrators gathered outside the Miami-Dade Fire Rescue headquarters Wednesday to protest the pace of an investigation into a firefighter's comments over the Trayvon Martin shooting made on his personal Facebook page.

The protesters, who assembled outside the headquarters in Doral, claim the internal investigation into Capt. Brian Beckmann is dragging on.

"The director should come out and speak to the public and apologize for the words of Brian Beckmann," protester Walter Clark said. "At the same time, Brian Beckmann should be fired."
