Occupy Philly joins in nationwide protest as Nutter makes statement on Zimmerman acquittal
Newsworks ^ | 7/14/13 | Marilyn D’Angelo

Posted on 07/14/2013 5:01:19 PM PDT by Libloather

Across the nation, demonstrators are rallying against yesterday's Florida verdict acquitting former neighborhood watch volunteer George Zimmerman in the death of Trayvon Martin.

Protests, vigils and rallies began in cities across the country just moments after a jury of six women found Zimmerman not guilty.

Here in Philadelphia, those moved by the verdict gathered before midnight last night as part of a 17-hour vigil which began around 11:30 p.m. last night at the Municipal Services Building on Thomas Paine Plaza.

Today, Sunday, July 14, at 6:00 p.m., supporters of Occupy Philadelphia have called for a rally at 15th and JFK Blvd., centered at Love Park.

Mayor Michael Nutter released a statement this morning, saying, "everyone should be calm and reflective" during this time.

Since when do freeloaders have that much free time in a day? (Isn't that the opening song on Gilligan's Island?)

LOL 17 hour occupation.

I grew up with 4 sisters and they could occupy a bathroom for longer than that.

If the occuturds were serious about their white guilt they would go to Africa or the mideast and offer themselves up for slavery.

I had plans for going in this morning, cancelled that as soon as I hear the verdict. I need to transit the District to get to work. May call in sick tomorrow.

As was Travon Martin, Occupy thugs and criminals will be considered above the law, police that fail to comply will be fired.

Unless you've got some sort of permit that DC recognizes, think twice about that. Dc authorities will show you absolutely no mercy if you are found in possession of a firearm without a permit.

If you sense trouble in the next few days, pick a safer route to work, even if it's a longer commute. Or take a few vacation days.

Of course, it's up to you. You've got to weigh the probabilities. But understand that the second amendment for all practical purposes does not exist in DC, Baltimore, and NYC.

Guess it’s about time for many of these freeloaders to move into the park for a “cause” as many of their parents are probably ready to throw their butts out onto the sidewalk.

The GZ verdict came just in time for so many.

Instead of porta-potty’s, Mayor Nutter can provide plenty of Philadelphia police vehicles so the occutards can ‘go’ in style.

When that very thing was reported here in Charlotte during an “occupation,” our morning radio guy dubbed them “occupoopers.” LOL

“Decency” could strike again but it would need a miracle. But again, the Christian faith (the core, not the trappings) is in the miracle business 24/7/365.

It’s quite hard to preach to people when they beat you to death. You are more than welcome to preach in North Philly. Make sure you have your will up to date first.

Well I do not know if I will be called to be a missionary to Philly, but those are sorely in need. China, in the meantime, is seeing a quiet Christian revival as the regime is more and more focused on money than it is upon ideological affairs. Chinese Christian missionaries will probably soon come to America.

What exactly is OWS rallying against with George Zimmerman?
They’re bored.

Its not like GZ is part of the police or an “evil” banker or part of the 1%. He has no power over these morons. He’s not responsible for the loss of jobs or crashing the economy. Isn’t that their cause?
The man was investigated by the Feds, dragged into court by a shady prosecutor even though he was cleared by local Florida police, given a trial, and was acquitted by a jury of six women.

No wonder this movement didn’t go anywhere. They are idiotic, and do not have one clue what they’re fighting against or fighting for.

All of these groups are being organized by the same leaders. I routinely watch them on Ustream, online- at their different events.

They all have the same songs, cries and tactics. This is the result of our Community Organizer in the White House.

Then again, he has killed the economy- stolen their jobs and riddled them with debt and hopelessness.

So- hey protesting is sort of an exciting gig, when it comes up.

Don’t be distracted. The Federal government is going to use sleight of hand, to keep our attention focussed on riots and demonstrations like the ones in Oakland, San Francisco and elsewhere, to try and give Boehner and Cantor breathing room to force amnesty for illegal aliens down our throats. DON’T LET THEM DO THIS!!
