Hoodies Up rally in Minneapolis for Trayvon Martin
KMSP ^ | 7/15/13 | Lindsey LaBelle

Posted on 07/15/2013 2:13:19 PM PDT by ButThreeLeftsDo

A Minneapolis rally to support Trayvon Martin in the not guilty verdict of George Zimmerman is slated for Monday night with help from a group that supports Uptown shooting victim Terrance Franklin.

MN Neighborhoods Organizing for Change calls it the #HoodiesUp for Trayvon Rally which is set to begin at 6 p.m. at the Hennepin County Government Center in downtown Minneapolis. The Justice 4 Terrance Franklin Committee is also helping organize the event, among others.

SNIP

Terrance Franklin, 22, was fatally shot by Minneapolis police in Uptown on May 10 after allegedly shooting two cops.

According to the Minneapolis Police Department, officers struggled with Franklin in the basement of a home he had broken into at 27th and Bryant Avenue South after he fled police in a car and then on foot.

From an article in the StarTribune on the Terrence Franklin shooting....

"Officer Luke Peterson was identified by sources with knowledge of the investigation as the police officer who fired the fatal shot. The sources told the Star Tribune that officers were struggling with Franklin, 22, in a cramped basement room when he reached for an officer’s MP5 machine pistol and squeezed the trigger as the officer held the gun, firing at least two shots that struck two officers in their legs.

Peterson stepped between the officer who had the MP5 and Franklin, who was trying to get another shot off, the sources said. Peterson then fired back, killing Franklin, according to the sources. The police officers survived."

That'll get you shot. Every time.

The State of Florida Prosecutor’s office also COVERED UP that Travon Martin had kiddie porn on his cell phone, as well as pics of him menacingly holding a handgun. But, their IT guy testified to the truth, and was then FIRED for that!!

Not a racist bone in me but a hoodie unnerves me as quick as a burka, frankly.

Astroturf. Any “genuine” public gatherings would have already occurred.

Meanwhile no tears shed for the thousands dead in Mexico because Barack Obama ran guns illegally to narcoterrorists.

They should get the “Free Mumia” crowd in with them.

These folks love cop killers and young dope addicts.

It’s the culture Dontcha know.

The Justice 4 Terrance Franklin Committee...

TF breaks into someone’s basement. Tries to shoot some cops while he’s in there, and he’s shot dead. Yet, he is somehow portrayed as the poor black victim.

Can I ask a stupid question? Why is it okay for young black men to roam around in public with a “gang” demeanor, the swagger, wearing hoodies, pants on the ground, etc., and instead of the black community being embarrassed or ashamed, instead, we are racist if we say anything? And we’re racist if we are afraid of these black gang appearing people. Why is this??

I don’t think hoodies bother anyone when they are worn in cold weather and the wearer keeps face up.

What is unnerving is when they are worn up in warm weather and the wearer take a head down stance to shield their face from view.

They are warn to protect the face from security cameras.

Because from the day they are born this is the horse dung they are taught.

Even worse a lot of young whites are emulating them, because that’s what it takes to get laid by so many white girls.

The Black culture is totally fugged up and they are destroying our culture.

Is the MP5 the standard sidearm now? Maybe it should have been safed. Who knows.

Combining a rally for Traytable with a rally for a wannabe cop killer sounds appropriate.

Early evening temps in MN are supposed to be in the 80s. Not quite the heat wave like here in Jersey, but pretty darn hot to be wearing hoodies!

Hoodies are used to hide one’s identity while they commit crimes.

At one time, the hood had a legitimate use. Now it is used as a tool for anonymity by the FUY’s (feral urban youths)

These people are still pushing the delusion that Trayvon Martin was shot for wearing a hoody.

TM was shot for “singing in the rain”, just singing in the rain?

how many of these ‘hoodies’ have jobs and work for a living, how many contribute to the taxes the Federal Government requires?

I think they are all obama munchers..

and all this is doing is taking obama out of the news as he continues his crimes...wake up Americans

He was just looking for his reparations...

This will continue. And in the inner cities it will get worse.

That is why we moved out of the outer ring burbs to just far enough out I’ll still drive (in a econobox) in to the cities to work.

I was seeking around on the radio and hit 105.1 (and .3 and .7 I think it is) not sure when they flipped from music but the two talking IDIOTS where rambling on about how no one could change their mind that this sweet innocent little boy was shot in cold blood and the shooter got away with murder..

WTF. Either these guys are absolute idiots or they are flat out lying to keep people whipped up.

I am going to go with both for my selection.
