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.
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.

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.
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.
Believe me, I had the same thought as you.
So are the police and the mayor and the black preacher etc trying to threaten the jury into convicting?
This is Al Fecalphelia Sharton we're talkin bout. His career literally started in a full toilet bowl.
The twits will stir things up plenty.
Obama is the GREAT STIRRER!! “If I had a son” crap....actually, it’s not crap because if he did have a son he would be EXACTLY like Trayvon....tatted....Gold Tooth....Gang Member......THUG.
The drums is beatin in memphis right now.
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.
That is interesting.
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.
So you’re saying the photograph accompanying the article is NOT one taken in conjunction with the article? I’d like to be sure about this.
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.
Thassss why Z will lose.
What’s one whiteboy honkey compared to a nice, big riot??
THE FIX IS IN.
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.
24 minutes of grandstanding...what will the aftermath be...???
Watch Prosecutor Corey Announce Charges Against Zimmerman in Trayvon Martin Death
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.
Should be riots if Zimmerman loses.
Mob verdicts do exist.
Olive Branch here.
Knock, Knock.........George Zimmerman who?
Drug possession, destruction of property, possession of stolen goods and a burglary weapon all found and covered up in an attempt to bring down reported crime rates.
Barack...hes talking down to black people...telling niggers how to behave.-Jessie Jackson.
WASHINGTON - In a vulgar tirade caught on tape by Fox News, the Rev. Jesse Jackson said he wanted to cut his [Barack Obamas] nuts out and he accused the fellow Chicagoan of talking down to black folks by giving moral lectures to African-Americans, source said Jacksons shocking quotes were picked up by a hot mic before an interview on health care in Foxs Chicago studio last Sunday.
Remember when the police were acquitted in the Rodney King beating? LA exploded.
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.
Maybe it will work.
Doesn’t anyone remember “if I had a son...” comments from our turd of a president? I lay much of the problems at his feet.
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).
As in the Rodney King riots, the protestors only destroyed their own neighborhoods, same will happen if riots occur... alas Eric Holder will step in and railroad Zimmerman same s King trial...
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.
As long as you remain below the state line it is pretty nice, as are certain parts of Memphis.
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.
