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.

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.
