Skip to comments.Occupy Philly joins in nationwide protest as Nutter makes statement on Zimmerman acquittal
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.
Where’s the vigil for those killed in Chicago? Or Philadelphia?
Or how about the 50 million babies that have been butchered.
Stay safe, stay armed!
If the occuturds were serious about their white guilt they would go to Africa or the mideast and offer themselves up for slavery.
ZIMMERGRAM: Instagram users are pissed that George Zimmerman was acquitted in the killing of Trayvon Martin
Are the Occupy freaks going to take dumps on the sidewalks again..I guess its fitting for turds to sit amongst turds
I’ll be just fine. :)
Thanks for the well wishes.
I gotta go to DC every day to work for the G. Thinking of packing for the next couple of days.
Oh don’t be RACIST! That’s just Black on Black late term abortions. Please don’t confuse acts that liberals and Blacks consider socially acceptable with a WHITE HISPANIC JEW COP WANNA BE killing a Black in self defense. Totally different things.
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.
>>LOL 17 hour occupation.

I guess this is an “occupado.”
As was Travon Martin, Occupy thugs and criminals will be considered above the law, police that fail to comply will be fired.
Which side? Pennsy or Jersey? I’m in South Jersey.
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.
CC and Castle Doctrine is LEGAL in Philadelphia. Maybe there are some Z’s their also!
Northern Wilmington, DE. Where in South Jersey? We go to Avalon in the Summer for beach time. I have family in PA, DE, and NJ.
But they had no problem with a murderer (OJ Simpson) walking free.
Just say your name is David Gregory if caught.
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.
Where can we find a list of all these rallies so we know what areas to stay away from?
You may want to buy a “Che” shirt for just such occasions.
That is the post of the day. Thanks for the laugh. I know exactly what you mean.
>>>>>Are the Occupy freaks going to take dumps on the sidewalks again...<<<<<
When that very thing was reported here in Charlotte during an “occupation,” our morning radio guy dubbed them “occupoopers.” LOL
sidebar to cc: My dad lived in a house with so many females, he had to build a bathroom in the basement! LOL
Franklinville, near rts 40 & 47, halfway between Wilmington and Atlantic City.
the city of brotherly love is anything but
Che shirts still sell. Humanity needs to take a good look at itself and ask why should such wickedness be so ingratiating.
Okay, I’m somewhat familiar with the area. We are both aware of the lovely people in Philly...North Philly especially.
That is absolutely true. Most of the decent people have left the city to the surrounding areas.
I used to work there quite a bit. Now I almost never cross the bridge. I just work n S. Jersey.
“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.
LOL! Taht’s my favorite scene in all the Indiana Jones films.
It’s possible, but I will not be holding my breath.
Mine as well. It’s such a memorable scene. The Last Crusade is my favorite of the films. Sean Connery was a great addition as “Junior’s” father.
Breath holding never advanced the gospel, that’s plainly true.
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, Christians are quite familiar with lions. This is nothing new!
You’re braver than I am.
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?
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.
Please riot. Come to my house and break in!! I’ll make the great community protector (George, the man, Zimmerman) look like a weakling.
They’re so smart that they’ll burn their own neighborhoods down.
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!!
