Oakland Demonstrators Burn Flags, Smash Cop Car After Jul. 14, 2013 7:45am Madeleine Morgenstern

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Protesters angered by the acquittal of George Zimmerman held largely peaceful demonstrations in three California cities, but broke windows and started small street fires Oakland, police said.

The gatherings Saturday night ranged from a few dozen to a couple hundred people turning out to protest the verdict in the Florida courtroom over the death of Trayvon Martin, and police said some of the demonstrations continued into the early hours Sunday.

The Oakland police dispatch office said about 100 people protested, with some in the crowd breaking windows on businesses and starting small fires in the streets. As the protest wound down with the crowd dispersing, the office said that as of 2 a.m. PDT it had no word of any arrests.

Local media reports said some Oakland marchers vandalized a police squad car and police formed a line to block the protesters’ path.

There was a Twitter-verse story that a white man in Miami was killed in retaliation. Any proof of that show up?

I think you may be right.
We did not see the large scale rioting that the media told us was coming.

Rejection of the MSM?
Rejection of the race baiters posing as civil rights activist?
Rejection of race baiting elected officials?
ALL OF THE ABOVE?
I can only hope and pray.

115,000 People Have Already Signed NAACP Call For Civil Rights Charges Against George Zimmerman

"An appeal to Attorney General Eric Holder from the nation’s oldest civil rights organization.

The appeal asks Attorney General Eric Holder to “address the travesties of the tragic death of Trayvon Martin by acting today” and press civil rights charges against Zimmerman, who shot an unarmed Martin last February in what he said was an act of self-defense."

Well, if you don't like it here... you can always go back to Africa. They really kill a lot of people there... and the vast majority of the deaths are not self-defense.

Media
Al Sharpton: ‘This Is An Atrocity…a Slap in the Face to Those That Believe in Justice’
Jul. 13, 2013 10:51pm Madeleine Morgenstern

Rev. Al Sharpton reacted to the George Zimmerman not guilty verdict by calling it an “atrocity” and “a slap in the face to those that believe in justice in this country.”

“I think that this is an atrocity, I think that it is, it is probably one of the worst situations that I have seen,” Sharpton said. “What this jury has done is establish a precedent that when you are young and fit a certain profile, you could be committing no crime, just bringing some Skittles and iced tea home to your brother and be killed and someone can claim self-defense, having been exposed with all kinds of lies, all kinds of inconsistencies.”

Yes.

Some will claim this is just a bunch of white-boy Occupy partiers as some here have suggested, but the weekend has just begun and the race pimps such as the Revs. JJ and Sharpton are just awakening today. It is still very early....

They aren’t demonstrators, and I can’t believe the Blaze used that term. They are criminals, thugs, and that’s all they are. I doubt any of them give a rat’s behind about Martin or anything else other than an excuse to loot.

“Protests are planned in cities including Boston, New York City, Chicago and San Francisco on Sunday, a day after a jury found the former neighborhood watch volunteer not guilty. The case unleashed debate across the U.S. over racial profiling, self-defense and equal justice.”

Zimmerman Verdict Gives Opportunity for Usual Suspects to Display True Colors-Today on The Teri O’Brien Show-7-14-13
Posted on July 14, 2013 by Teri

Zimmerman in Crosshairs

In addition to restoring faith in our justice system, George Zimmerman’s acquittal provided an opportunity for everyone to show us who they really are; specifically,

Race hustlers, hypocrites who are outraged and horrified when a black “child” is killed by a “white Hispanic,” but are perfectly comfortable with the hundreds of black teenagers shot dead on a regular basis in Barack Obama’s Chicago;

Moronic celebutards who took to the favorite communication tool of Beliebers, Twitter, to demonstrate their jaw-dropping ignorance;

Lame Stream Media Liberal “Journalists,” who lamented the absence of blacks on the Zimmerman jury, even though a jury of the defendant’s peers would have consisted of those exotic “white Hispanics;”

Outright Idiots who probably can’t read or write cursive, and whose knowledge base begins and ends with the latest pop culture “star,” enjoying his or her 15 minutes of fame.

The actual takeaway of this criminal case, which held the nation spellbound, was spoken clearly by Aristotle back around 300 B.C. “The law is reason free from passion,” which is another way of saying that no good results when the equivalent of a lynch mob, fueled by race baiters like Al Sharpton, Eric Holder, and even sadly, Barack Obama, who also showed us again who he is, a narcissistic embarrassment, an self-absorbed empty suit who conned his way into office by surfing a wave of white guilt and media deification, demands that an innocent man be charged with murder for the crime of self-defense.

Probably not so high, in relative terms compared to, say Detroit. Oakland is diverse, meaning it has a lot of affluent people (on the hills), has some ritzy white neighborhoods. Poor folk down on the flatlands near freeways and bay. The worst parts of Oakland are luxurious compared to Detroit's ghettos. But the black punks in Oakland, while small in number and area, make up for it with craziness. Lots of murders and mayhem in the black portion of Oakland.

Sending guns won’t help. Law-abiding folks have too many restrictions on guns in California. However, the black miscreants illegally use guns with abandon. One of my daughters used to live in Oakland, in one of those ritzy areas I spoke of. I feared for her life, because she commuted thru those flatlands to her job a few miles away. On the very same street as carjackings, drive-by shootings and murders that happened with regularity. She now lives in Texas, both she and her husband have AR-15 rifles, and the freedom to own them.

Oakland is crazy, the punks get away with stuff and PC lawmakers protect them.

The press will be doing their best to downplay any riots or acts of retribution by blacks... they’ll tell themselves they’re being ‘responsible’ rather than ‘controlled by democrat handlers’.

Here’s how we could prove it:

Conservatives could ‘fake’ a mildly violent encounter: Five ‘tea party’ members taped throwing one small spitball at a fake gay person or black. Then someone releases the tape to CNN. That ‘violence’ a tiny spitball will be replayed on CNN and NBC every 15 minutes until it’s discovered to be fake. They would run with that story.

The press knows what side they’re on...

Democrats have decided the threat of violence works for them but real violence doesn’t. It’ll be months before we find out all the things that happened in the name of Trayvon...
