Protests erupt from coast to coast after George Zimmerman goes FREE:
The Daily Mail ^ | 14 July 2013 | Rachel Quigley, Jessica Jerreat, James Nye and Louise Boyle

Posted on 07/14/2013 9:05:40 PM PDT by MinorityRepublican

Protests are spreading across the country today following the sensational not-guilty verdict for George Zimmerman after he shot dead teenager Trayvon Martin.

Demonstrations, from Florida where the trial took place to Atlanta, DC and New York, have remained largely peaceful--although pockets of violence had erupted in Oakland, California.

Emotional crowds carried signs calling for justice as police assembled close by to monitor activity - a New York march culminated with a group of thousands gathering in Times Square before continuing towards Harlem as Sunday night wore on and Los Angeles protestors blocked a city freeway as they took their anger with Saturday's verdict to the streets.

“... following the sensational not-guilty verdict for George Zimmerman after he shot dead teenager Trayvon Martin.”

For starters, anyone who actually watched the trial would have been sensationalized by a guilty verdict. The state’s witnesses helped Zimmerman immensely. Secondly, this phrasing and punctuation make it sound like Trayvon was already dead when he was shot. Good grief.

“Erupt” is a bit of an overstatement.

I just don’t believe there is that much real ‘anger’ out there. Almost everyone knows deep down Z did the only thing he could do to save his life. What’s more, who among us would have done differently?

The vast majority out there ‘protesting’ are either paid or simply want to riot in the first place, imo.

I think the difference between this and Rodney King verdict is everyone was ready for it. Individual incidents will be more frequent I’m afraid.

Liberals and moochers don’t want a system of justice.

They want a system of vengeance against anyone who doesn’t think like them.

The Sanford PD, the FBI and a jury of women all assessed the evidence against Zimmerman and determined that there was no “there” there.

So, these “protesters” (Obama’s army of ignoramuses) have concluded that NONE of the people heard the REAL story or know the evidence as intimately as they do. And, yet, in accordance with the laws of the United States of America, Ceorge Zimmerman was tried by a “jury of his peers” as prescribed by law and found not guilty.

Which mow makes him a political prisoner. GZ is the new poster child for a “news” media that is out of control and allowed to fabricate it’s own narrative of stories. Much of what they wrote and said about GZ anfd TM was manufactured, manipulated BS that a court of law determined was unfounded. This is also what “Dear Leader” has brought to America, the rule of man, NOT law.

If this is to be the beginning of a new race war, the end will be disasterous and will retard the cause of “civil rights” by 100 years. Everything that African Americans perceive they are denied will become reality for them. Then, and perhaps, only then, will they understand how much they REALLY lost by allowing themselves to be played by the biggest shyster of them all - the Race Pimp-in-Chief!

The UK media (and Canadian) is really playing this up for all it’s worth. They are using this as proof that the U.S. is still in the era of Jim Crow.

Hmmm Bob, it may be that unless your the 12 people and a goat that watches MSLSD that this Traytable race media manufactured is a dud. Traytable was not an NBA or NFL star so I’m pretty sure the hood has moved on to the next Judge Judy show

Sorry, but this notion that protests are erupting all over the country is complete and utter B.S. In fact, the MSM and Dems were disappointed that this ruling came on the weekend and not Monday.

Oh yes, and FUBO!

Thank you for these—I copied them and sent them to our local “news” station in Atlanta.
They are trying to incite violence against Caucasians and Hispanics.

Their stupid “reporter” (and writer) said that a “minority” woman in a certain county didn’t want her child to play outside for fear of his life after this verdict-—!!!!!!

I thought maybe they’d like to do some research before George Zimmerman’s attorney SUES THEM as well as NBC.

How many black youths are shot dead in big cities like Chicago EVERY YEAR?

I do not see Sharpton & Jackson marching for that mayhem.
But Zimmerman who spent time mentoring black kids is a villain because he is not black.

I suppose this is a better reaction than that after the Rodney King verdict or after MLK was shot. I hope the next time we get a case like this, the reaction is to respect the Jury’s verdict.

I’m starting to think that a majority of the blacks in this country KNOW Trayvon was a thug and they don’t want their kids doing it. There are a lot of good black kids out there.

YES, and someone who is Black and prominent needs to state just that....and start REWARDING being GOOD...instead of rewarding the thugs, ie, think sports, etc.

anyone who actually watched the trial would have been sensationalized by a guilty verdict...

Was talking with my neighbor about it tonight and he swears he not only watched every minute of the trial but taped it so he could watch it again. His conclusion - Zimmerman should have gotten the death penalty or life in prison. The neighbor is not Black and based on my brief encounters with him in the past it not dumb. He did, however, vote for Obama both times and kept referring to the “dumb women” on the jury who would have been better off to have stayed home and done “women’s work”.

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!!

How hypocritical of the media to say they didn’t report these incidents in order to tamper racial violence. Say what? That’s exactly what they did with the Zimmerman case. The stations giving this case wall-to-wall coverage and misleading information all need to be sued - and that includes Fox if they participated. I don’t watch any of the news channels so I’m not aware if Fox did or did not encourage the hostilities.

only thing I noticed in my little corner of paradise was some guy down the street lightin’ off some fireworks for about 15 after the verdict went public. We here in TN. enjoyed the show. Been waiting all night for trouble. Not so much as a dog bark. Of course it’s this way every night.... Minus the fireworks which only happen on the 4th and new years eve.

Liberals and moochers want a system that more easily turns over the wealth of the producers to the non-producers. Robbing someone else seems like the easy way to do it.

Because since the LA Riots they’ve learned that cars + freeways mean fast access to Crackerville.
Question is whether they’ve learned that Whitey is mumbling “bring it”.
