But if one is in Florida or planning on visiting Florida, what precautions should one take?
It should be noted that Sanford is on the Northeast side of Orlando, Florida.
Disney World is on the Southwest side of Orlando. Will that be far enough away so that innocent tourists will not become victims?
Will trouble spill over into other Florida cities/locales?
Troubling is that Obama is not trying to keep people from possibly rioting.
Seems like our president should be trying to keep the peace. The lives at stake are all people in the possible troubled areas. African-Americans may end up in jail or injured/shot. Other people (whites/hispanics) could also be victims.
Anyone have a sense of what might happen, especially since Obama seems to not care if riots break out...
NAACP convention next week
Stay the heck away from that place
Run Forest run!!!! :-)
DISAGREE....Whites and “White-enough” Hispanics with guns should descend on Sanford to defend the community from Sharpton and his racist mobs. THIS ‘AINT SOUTH CENTRAL!
Oh good grief....what a pantload. How about we wait until somthing actually happens before we start the scaremongering.
we have the next generation of race baiters
Crump is a wannabe that is going to get taken apart on the stand
Normally, Disney would be safe, since it is far away from any possible trouble areas. It’s in a pretty unpopulated area actually. However, the NAACP convention is in town next week, and the conventions are held on the south side near the tourist attractions. It is possible they will go to Disney and wreck up the place, though somewhat unlikely since Disney doesn’t sell big-screen TVs. Still, Disney is a “gun-free zone” which translates into a lot of unarmed targets for the community organizers.
Shoot to kill.
I'm not worried about riots and I would bet Disney is not worried about riots .....they have made security an art form.
If GZ is acquitted (*highly* unlikely,IMO) it would be wise to steer clear of every “chocolate city” in the nation.
Glad I live in the suburbs and don’t have to worry about it. Any rioters come into my neighborhood and the chances are good they would never leave.
Don’t give away the “zombie” meme!
We all know that “zombies” are a proxy - don’t let the lefties in on it!
You have to understand Obama is a community organizer...he wants agitation in the community so that he can arrive amidst crisis and be seen as the great mediator. I would even expect Eric Holder to immediately issue a statement saying the not guilty verdict is demeaning to “his people”.
I am sure the locals here in Memphis will loot no matter what the verdict.
I would think that everyone in the country should be ‘on alert’ for the day/night of the verdict, not only in Sanford or Florida.
As someone on another thread said, “They do not need a reason to riot. They need an excuse.”
They riot when their team loses but also when their team wins.
If you are the one that something actually happens to,
I’m sure you will have wished you had been prepared before hand.
Disney is a "gun-free zone," which basically means their security is designed for locking up drunken and rowdy tourists from England in speedos with too much sunscreen.
I can prepare for myself. I don’t need the President to address the nation.
I agree with both. I don’t see them as exclusive. I guess some LIVs need to government to tell them to take the next breath.
The current testimony is that Trayyon Martin to leaning over Zimmmerman (laying on the ground) when he was shot.
It sounds like acquittal to me.
There is a difference in being prepared for something, and crying WOLF.
Disney World is close enough to where this occurred that there could be major problems.
In short, a word to the wise is sufficient.
Apologies for my initial harsh reply to this thread. Just tired of hand-wringing threads.
That is Good News!
KSC is no where near Orlando.Thats located on Merrit Island on the Atlantic Ocean just north of Coacoa Beach.
You should be very safe there.
Yep. I Work near Spri gfield, MA and try to avoid many parts of that city on a good day.
The Happiest Place on Earth! But come strapped.
Stay away from any street named Martin Luther King Blvd.
My niece is a nurse in Springfield.In fact,just the other day...at her son's birthday party...I had to read her the Riot Act regarding her walking to her car if she happens to be sent home from a shift late at night.I had to impress upon her the importance of having an escort for the walk to her car.
I quit going to Disney World 20 years ago. Too expensive, too gay friendly, too crowded. Nothing there worth my time or money.
Frankly, any urban downtown doesn’t sound really appealing if a Not Guilty verdict is announced.
As I type this, I’m looking nine floors below on to a street in downtown Minneapolis. With the kind of urban Amish we have here, the scene is right for something to happen.
It may not be large-scale or even sporadic rioting - but I couldn’t rule out the possibility of groups of urban Amish trying to, as they see it, “even the scroe” by randoml;y attacking whites.
This type of thing has happened in downtown Minneapolis before - and from what I’ve heard, is increasing. of course, our local media is soooo reluctant to report on stories like this.
That’s Cocoa Beach.
Family stops to get gas... Pump does not take credit card. Man stands in line to pay, and is beat up for being in the wrong neighborhood. The wife is also beat up for trying to help her husband as well as their daughter.
Link to article (FreeRepublic thread on WAFB article):
In my opinion, Chevron has egg on its face for allowing this to happen. Either close down your service stations or make it safe to gas up...
I seem to recall having read that,on a per capita basis,Memphis is one of the most violent medium size or large cities in the country.
What do Community Organizers do best?
Thats Cocoa Beach.
So it is.I appreciate your correction.
Now, if that case had been whites executing the hate crime, this would have been national news that made the headlines for days...
If there are riots, the buck stops with the Jug-Eared One.
NASA is nowhere near Orlando- its a hour ride straight east out to the coast..
part of me wants to be in a shopping mall in front of a bank of televisions when the verdict is read....and when they read “not guilty” i will start jumping for joy and celebrating- you know, like the OJ supporters did back in the day...
“You should be very safe there.”
I’m in Minnesota and I don’t feel safe.
Trouble is probably going to spill out into other states.
THIS AINT SOUTH CENTRAL!
In Orlando the cry would be ...
THIS AIN’T PARRAMORE!
THIS AIN’T CRIME HILLS!
Not sure if you've been there, but the theme parks are set back from the main roads on Disney's private property.....and once you enter the parks, your bags are searched.
There are unobtrusive cameras everywhere.....Disney knows what is going on at all times.
Imo, it's probably one of the safest places to be.....
...but running around Orlando proper (after you leave Disney).....that's a whole different story entirely.
However if you planned a trip to Disney and stayed in one of 'their' many theme hotels, you should be fine.
fwiw, I've even had friends evacuate to Disney during a hurricane....as everything is so well built.--Trust me, they take care of their own.
At the OJ verdict reading,
the celebrators had no reason to fear a beat down,
because those on the other side were civilized people.
I believe that Disney is the only business in Florida that has a POLICE FORCE. No, not security guards, a police force. WDW is the happiest place on earth, but I think they can bust your chops if you tick them off.
Ya know, if the msm wouldn’t keep pushing for riots, there wouldn’t be any. It’s hot outside in July and the low lifes would rather be under the A/C.
The openly waged war against Whitey has been raging for quite some time. Black America by and large has been indoctrinated to hate, justified in their hatred, and encouraged to seek revenge. No media or politician will touch this issue with a 20' pole, but both sides know it just the same.
White Leftist Elites in the Academe, Government, and Pop Culture have taught this resentment and encouraged hatred of Whitey for the last couple of generations because they believe that America is fundamentally evil. They also seem to believe they are immune from being "at being at the wrong place at the wrong time."
"E PLURIBUS UNUM" has been a national myth for a long time, and frankly is an impossibility of fulfillment that hope. Some of us can be "one" spiritually however -- but that's the best we can hope for and really the only thing that matters.
I know you’re trying to get this right....Kennedy Space Center is on Cape Canaveral/ Titusville......Merritt Island and Cocoa Beach are close.
