Pro-Trayvon Protesters Shut Down Sanford Police Department After Barricading Doors
Mediaite ^ | April 9, 2012 | James Crugnale

Posted on 04/09/2012 10:46:59 AM PDT by Free ThinkerNY

Protesters supporting Trayvon Martin shut down the Sanford Police Department on Monday after they barricaded the doors in an act of civil disobedience, The Orlando Sentinel’s Rene Stutzman and Bianca Prieto reports.

“The city of Sanford hopes the actions of the students will be as peaceful and orderly as the previous rallies and marches have been,” City Manager Norton Bonaparte, Jr. said in an email to the Orlando Sentinel. “We want to be accommodating to all our visitors proving they act in a manner that is respectful to the people of the city.”

Members of the US Department of Justice are also monitoring the scene.

The shutdown of the Sanford Police Department is the brainchild of the Dream Defenders, “a coalition of college students from across Florida who have marched and protested against the handling of the case by police.”

To see what "civil rights violation" charges they can manufacture against the Sanford PD.

Police inside? Sounds like false imprisonment. But then we are dealing with Holder’s people, so . . .

Is the Sanford Fire Department comfortable with blocking entrances and exits of public buildings?

When these non violent types start shooting its going to be interesting. Who are the MSM going to blame then? Folks in the South carry...many of the instigators are not from the South and will not figure that into the equation when they get what they wish.

Nah, it’s just a black thang. They don’t even have to axs.

This is a pretty sad day when the cops aren’t allowed stand up and arrest these thugs for shutting down their own police department.

Civil disobedience? It sounds more like mob violence from here. And why the police department? Wasn’t there a hearing do determine whether Trayvon Martin’s death was wrongfully brought about? If the DA had instructed the police to arrest George Zimmerman I’m sure they would have complied.

Ordinarily, yes, and you are quite correct. But I was recently disabused of that faulty spelling and pronunciation by the grandiloquent Reverend Al Sharpton while he was holding forth on MSNBC regarding the race-baiter’s news find of the decade, the Thugvon Martin case.

He very distinctly called them - repeatedly - “skillets,” so who am I to argue with such an august personage as he?

They get paid by the month.They get paid just as much sitting around the station as they do putting out fires.

My advice would be if you are White, stay away from Sandford. That and prepare.

It is all Bush's fault. Do not fear if when the Amish start shooting they shoot at you. The safest place to be is the target. Worry like hell if they are shooting at someone next to you,or across the street, or a block away.

The police have shown their true colors as revenue collectors Vs. Keepers of Public Safety when they allowed them to shut doen the Police Deartment.

Here’s the video :)

Al Sharpton propaganda tv.

The requisite "Honkified" Zimmerman mug shot, and a nice array of TM baby pictures, but they forgot the most recent TM iteration (No_Limit_Ni**a with the shiny gold teeth).

Sharpton says here that Zimmerman was not under "life extenuating" circumstances. IWO, Sharpton is admitting here that Zimmerman's life WAS in danger, LOL!

Thank you!

The only thing that seemed to be missing from his report was a sponsor acknowledgment for The Sunshine Cab Company, Incorpulated.

Why do we seem to allow fools like Sharpton to get all bent out of shape whenever they perceive unfavorable stereotyping, yet they personify and perpetuate it themselves?

Haven’t his 15 minutes of fame expired decades ago?

50 members of the liberal mob trumped the 50,000 residents of Sanford... the liberal way...

And when the race riots start in Sanford and other places across the nation you’ll see the same cowardice displayed.

That means when the riot is coming down your street you had better be ready to deal with it because the cops aren’t going to do so!

That is the most frightening sign of a breakdown in law and order. Government’s function is to protect citizens and uphold the law. When it fails to do this, people begin to ask why we have government at all? This could lead to anarchy, and that’s a scary scenario.

Exactly. What part of “public safety” is consistent with letting a police department be occupied by a mob and shut down?

I wonder who made this decision: the Chief or someone above him? The officers as a whole shouldn’t be blamed for having an idiot(s) in charge.
