In San Francisco, demonstrators marched through the Mission District after gathering at the 24th Street Mission BART Station. Hundreds marched down Valencia Street, chanting "Justice for Trayvon Martin."

The crowd dispersed peacefully, and officers will "maintain a presence in the Mission District for the time being," said San Francisco police Officer Gordon Shyy, a department spokesman. Another protest was scheduled for 4 p.m. Sunday at Powell and Market streets.

Because starting fires and smashing windows always gets rational, sane people to agree with your point of view. I’m convinced. Earlier, I thought GZ was completely innocent. Now he should be a lifer. Maybe Eric Holder can help./S

Not good for downtown Oakland. Today there are so many boarded-up storefronts in what had decades ago been a thriving business district and a nice place to shop.

Oaklanders sell their “Oaklandish” logo fashions and other branded merchandise out of a sense of defiance and pride, but defiance and pride can’t make up for the fact that they routinely foul their own nest when their sense of “social justice” has been offended.

If Trayvon was doing the pound and ground on their heads, they might have a different point of view. How can people be so outraged over someone they don’t know - and lived over 3,000 miles away? Ok - that was a stupid question on my part.

They’re perpetually outraged. Any excuse to act out. And...they think Trayvon really was a “little kid.”

I think the rioting is starting here in the west because the verdict came in so late. Tomorrow morning will be the beginning of troubles in east coast slums. In contrast to the Rodney King riots, this time around it seems far more trumped up with faked vehemence.

Good observation.

I'd noted on another thread the apparent absence (in my local area) of thuggish types, early this evening. I suppose they were congregating elsewhere watching for the verdict. So they'll be up bright and early tomorrow with plans for mischief? Oh wait, it's Sunday. Maybe Monday instead.

I was in one of those bars. From my perspective, it was a bunch of white occupy trustafarian assholes looking for an excuse to break some innocent entrepeneur’s stuff. They’re on camera. I hope OPD does something, for once.

Certainly as good an argument for concealed carry as you’re going to get.

The crowd dispersed peacefully, and officers will “maintain a presence in the Mission District for the time being,” said San Francisco police Officer
***That’s the key to the whole thing. The Rodney King riots got out of hand when the police decided to vacate instead of doing what we pay them to do.

“And...they think Trayvon really was a “little kid.”

I think one of the smartest things MoM did during closing arguments, was to bring out those cardboard cut-outs showing the height of Zimmerman and in comparison the height of Trayvon Martin. How many child(ren) do you know that are 6 feet tall and have good pecs, hmmmm? I’m sure when looking at the cut-outs, the point was not lost on the jury.

10PM on a Saturday night in the summer is just about ripe for a riot if there was gonna be one. Nothing will happen after tonight if it didn’t already start. People aren’t as invested in Trayvon being shot and killed as the race hu$telers and media make you think.
Only some attention whores who get on twitter or in front of a camera just to be seen or heard.
Rodney King was different this is true. That was about “the establishment” coming down on another black man and “getting away with it.”

GZ is not even white looking.

I’m guessing that the chance that Florida has concealed carry might have something to do with lack of riots.

Those silly Black Panthers, protesting at midnight again, when nobody can see them. It’s almost as if they want to loot and vandalize instead. Once again, they expose their attack upon property rights.

Hopeless Oakland just needs an excuse. It could have been as basic as Safeway selling a carton of spoiled tomatoes and suddenly the sound of breaking plate glass windows is heard.

We witnessed this kind of lawlessness in Salisbury, Rhodesia (Zimbabwe) where it succumbed to militant majority mob rule over time. Open carry extended the lives of the white farmers that were the pillars of their once thriving agrarian-based economy.

Open and concealed carry could go a long way to quieting the rampant violence in places like Chicago and Oakland.

I once attended a business conference at Jack London Square on the Oakland waterfront. Very nice area (the only nice area I saw in Oakland), but I quickly noticed that this hotel, restaurant, and entertainment district had 24-hour security at every vehicle entry/exit point and they were very serious about checking who entered. It felt very much like a walled oasis in the middle of the urban chaos, kind of like Oakland’s version of the Green Zone in Iraq. Set foot anywhere outside Jack London Square, however, and it was a very different world. I don’t recall a single night that the local news didn’t report multiple murders somewhere in Oakland.

And you wonder why many Chinese in Oakland’s Chinatown are moving at the first opportunity to the south end of Alameda County—Fremont, CA. If you visit Fremont, there’s a very sizable Chinese community living there for many years.

Tomorrow morning will be the beginning of troubles in east coast slums

A lot will depend on what the preachers in the East coast black churches say this morning. If they whip up the black women at services, things could get interesting.
