SANFORD — The American Civil Liberties Union today sent a letter to the chief judge for Seminole and Brevard counties, complaining about rules restricting what protesters at next week’s George Zimmerman trial can and cannot do.

The letter called the restrictions overly broad and vague.

That includes guns and weapons but also chairs, coolers and protest signs with wooden or metal handles.
