Cops go door-to-door in Trayvon town

Cops go door-to-door in Trayvon town

To calm city in preparation for Zimmerman verdict.

Cops are going door-to-door in an American city again, only this time at least they are knocking on doors instead of knocking them down.

The most recent example of a police-state presence is developing even now in Sanford, Fla., where neighborhood-watch participant George Zimmerman is on trial for murder for the death of teenager Trayvon Martin.

While the media has portrayed Zimmerman as white, he actually has a Hispanic heritage, and Martin was black.

Police say they fear the backlash from the community which could develop at the point the jury verdict is delivered. Los Angeles had days of rioting when the Rodney King verdict came down.

So Sanford Police Chief Cecile Smith confirmed officers are going door-to-door talking to people.

“Our worst fear is that we’d have people from outside the community coming in and stirring up … violence,” he said.

"Our worst fear is that we’d have people from outside the community coming in and stirring up … violence,” he said."

That has already happened. Jessie & Al came to town and demanded they arrest Zimmerman Whipped gullible people into a frenzy. The media helped stir the pot with false reporting.
It is clear from the States witnesses that Zimmerman should have never been charged.

Forgive me at my incredulity regarding local police trying to get a jump on assuaging unease and tamping down any possible unrest before it starts.

In looking at the picture here of a gentlemen in a yellow T-shirt and ball cap talking to the policeman, the “optics” (to use a word the media so loves) are all wrong.

Body language is all wrong, at least for trying to assuage fears and tamp down, unless you graduated from the WWF school of body-slamming body language. The whole persona, demeanor and body language is wrong (seeming smirk, right hand holster-ready, skinned head, partner at the backup).

If I were the Sheriff, Police Chief, or whatever, I'd have my men/women out talking to these residents in a more amiable manner - or at least looking like they're there for something other than to intimidate....my two cents.

Solution: Lock up racists Jesse and Al for a few days after the verdict. The charge: conspiracy to rabble rouse.

Maybe their purpose was to intimidate; i.e., “this is how we are when we are friendly.”

Hopefully Zimmerman is found not guilty. Police should back off, set up roadblocks, shutdown any entry/exit and let the town/neighborhood go at it.

Common sense folks should stay away and watch the self-destruction and when it’s over do nothing. Tell the locals “you “F’d” it up you live with it.

Race-baiters Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton coming to town?

This is what they do. They never show up when the victim is not part of the game they play on the fools being played.

Going door to door to calm tensions in the black community......what a bunch of bull spit! Politicial correctness run amok. The thugs will just be looking for an opportunity to loot and injure whites. The police commanders should be preparing for riot control and put out orders that lawbreakers will not be tolerated and will face arrest and prosecution.

It's a common problem with online media -- in particular Drudge report and townhall.com vis-a-vis they use stock photography that are out of context with their headlines.

So next time you see something like Newt Gingrich with his face buried in his hands under the headline "Gingrich regrets ... blah blah blah" keep in mind the picture has nothing to do with the headline. It's done to reinforce the validity of the headline. Call it what it is. Propaganda.

Of course that was the goal. Scare the locals, and make them MORE likely to riot if the wrong verdict is reached.

Load all your magazines and weapons. Have several days of food and water at hand (you should anyway). Be ready to defend yourself and your loved ones. If they riot, let them kill each other off and destroy their property. If they come after you and yours, defend it. No assistance, no help to replace their things that they destroy in a childish tantrum.

Police: Sir, I know you are upset but I'm out here telling you that rioting is 1) illegal and 2) will end badly for you and your cohorts.

Perpetually angry yout: Yo! Just us fo Trayvon! We gonna burn dis play down if Z ain't hangin !

Police (moves in close and whispers): I told you my piece, let me give you advice: it's your own hood you'll burn down. Rednecks around here outnumber cops 100-1. You 1000-1. Do the math homeboy. Honestly I hope you riot. I'll call in sick and in 3 days the rebel flag will be flying on the charred remains of your houses. I'll have a quiet 10 years to retirement because there will be a lot less of you "chip on your shoulder" types around. Good day!

Obama said Trayvon could have been his son AND the DA had her grandstanding press conference to announce murder charges...trust they’ll both well bemoan a not guilty verdict.

My impression of the shot was similar. But, then again, I wonder if that particular shot was used by the media just because it telegraphed what you described.

Capitulating to threats of violence. They ought to be putting out a statement that whatever the verdict, rioting and violence will be met with ZERO tolerance. The more threats of rioting are met with touchy, feely campaigns, the more power is given to those making the threats.

The way to forestall any riots is to go door to door to the houses of Ben Crump, Natalie Jackson, Alvin Parks, Sybrina Fulton, Tracey Martin — handcuff them, arrest them, indict them.

We live in north Mississippi & I stopped going to Memphis years ago. It is crime central and the old mall I used to love (Oak Court) just isn’t worth it.

“Barack...he’s talking down to black people...telling niggers how to behave”.-Jessie Jackson.

http://www.nypost.com/p/news/national/item_2IKMVtS3vzxRvoAAxZ0ZGL

WASHINGTON - In a vulgar tirade caught on tape by Fox News, the Rev. Jesse Jackson said he wanted to “cut his [Barack Obama’s] nuts out” and he accused the fellow Chicagoan of “talking down to black folks” by giving moral lectures to African-Americans, source said Jackson’s shocking quotes were picked up by a hot mic before an interview on health care in Fox’s Chicago studio last Sunday.

After the acquital comes down Obama will go on TV and say “put the hurt on whitey” or words that signal it and I am expecting “unrest” in a lot of the major cities. We are planning to LAL and stay home the night of the verdict.

There really isn’t any telling of what the ‘provenance’ is I guess. However, with the police being so authoritarian so much of the time, the demeanor of the LEO is entirely understandable. It looks like he’s pulled the poor guy over for a drug stop when all the dude was doing is checking his mail it seems (letters in hand).

I have a friend in Collierville & I go to the Collierville outdoor mall when I need to. Good restaurants around too! SO many parents in the district where I teach try & send their kids to the DeSoto schools. They have made it much harder to cheat because they are becoming overwhelmed.

Last summer we were driving back from the airport & we drove by Graceland & that area was so scuzzy, I had no idea! We took the kids to the Children’s Museum in Memphis in May & that whole stretch of Lamar is beyond depressing.

This will not play out like Rodney King. It will not be a situation where white folks can “hunker down” and protect themselves. If Zimmerman is rightly found not guilty what you will see will be a national increase in WhiteGirlBleedAlot type of “random yout attacks”.

Everyone will be expected to carry on and go to work, the super market, etc. This calls for being willing to carry and some places do not allow that. That’s where you will see the attacks.
