Zimmerman Protesters Take Over FL Gov's Office
Breitbart ^ | 7/16/13 | Lee Stranahan,

Posted on 07/16/2013 11:17:48 AM PDT by Nachum

From Lee Stranahan, Breitbart News: A coalition put together by Dream Defenders took over Florida Gov. Rick Scott's office in Tallahassee on Tuesday to demand a special legislative session that they say will address "the issues at the center of the Trayvon Martin tragedy." The coalition contends that "stand your ground vigilantism, racial profiling and a war on youth that paints us as criminals and funnels us out of schools and funnels us out of schools and into prison" is part of the culture that lead to the tragedy. Governor Scott was out of the office and not expected to return today. Dream Defenders says it plans to occupy the office as long as needed. The group has engaged in sit-ins in the past that have lasted three days.

Turn off the power, shut down the air conditioning and turn off the plumbing. Let them sit there as long as they’d like.

The Governor can function in a state office building until they are out and the mess is cleaned up.

Issues like the theft of women's jewelry and the illegal possession,and use,of an intoxicating substance?

They’re being “funneled” into prison, because some of them are thugs. Don’t use illegal drugs, rob people, or otherwise break the laws, and you won’t go to prison. It’s really as simple as that.

Problem is the Occupy movement can go on in filthy conditions for a long time. Best to just call in the National Guard now.

Actually this is the work of professional agitators. Campus radicals and Occupy types. Highly contrived. If it were sincere black outrage it would have started ten minutes after the verdict was announced.

You mean, the Black mentality that is of a Welfare-mindset, that they have a Right to everything Whitey worked to get, and the Gubmint should hand them Obamaphones, Food Stamps, no-limit EBT's, Cadillac Escalades, Free Medicaid, CASH, and all the Crack they want? THAT "center" of the problem?????And when you decide to go beat up some "white ass cracka", who now is ARMED to protect himself and he shoots your ass, that's "racist" and "un-fair targeting of Black Yewts.

How about you don't get ANY Welfare without a father in the home????

OK, I understand leaving school, and I understand going into prison. Isn't there something that happens in between, something that is entirely the fault of the individual involved? Could that missing ingredient possibly be criminal activity?

Thanks, but I was thinking more of the taxpayer money spent to help foment demonstrations way back in April 2012. 0' made the son comment around the same time as the DOJ sent paid rabble-rousers to FLoriduh. Sounds like there may be more DOJ accounts funding something here...

Gov Scott, if I may, I offer to you the media statement for this “protest”:

“The Florida justice system, instituted by the great citizens of this State, has heard the evidence and provided a just and fair sentence as shown by the decision of 6 members of the jury agreed to by both the State and Mr. Zimmerman’s defense counsel.

“Those who wish to continue to attempt to negate this action of American justice by continuing to show their contempt for the rule of law and both the US and Florida Constitution prove themselves to be social mal-contents with no assembly or grievance rights.

“That said, anyone who continues to militate against a proper and agreeable execution of justice in this proceeding is, by definition, guilty of public trespass. I request that the Florida Department of Public Safety remove these “malcontents” and, if warranted, arrest them for trespass upon the people’s property.

“Y’all have a nice day.”

The more crap like this is allowed to take place with no consequences, the more emboldened the thugs become. This kind of lawlessness cannot be winked at just because the protestors are black or have some racial 'cause' to whine about. This kind of outrageous defiance of the law is the end result of too many politicians playing the PC game that puts anything about race off-limits for criticism or legal punishment when the 'protests' get out of hand, as this one clearly has.

The complaints are specious and mostly just a re-hash of the usual whining by those who insist on playing the victim to excuse poor choices and bad/illegal behavior. The self defense laws are reasonable and if thugs don't like them that simply validates their value to the law-abiding citizen, in Florida or elsewhere.

I would say their is black anger, however I’m not sure some of the inner city thugs are capable of organizing a protest. Hence the need for community agitators.

How about this? Change your attitude and behavior so you are NOT criminals, and try college or employment instead of prison.

“I swear they are trying to goad us into actually doing something we will sorely regret later.”

My theory, too. All of the sudden the media is now focusing on black on white assaults and murders SINCE the Zimmerman verdict. Those who are informed know they have been happening for some time and the press wouldn’t touch it. The are willing to sacrifice a few more “saints” in order to control guns that are being used in self defense.

Irony alert!

If Rick Scott hadn’t kissed the Race Hustler’s asses in the first place, this Kafka-esq trial would not have happened. These people could have had their riots a long time ago.He wimped out and gave them the kangaroo court trial.

Double irony alert!!

By holding a show trial that was destined to end in acquittal, he gave them a year & a half to foment more hate and anger. Thus ensuring a bigger explosion than would have happened had Zimmerman not been charged as should have been the outcome.

Oh, I see, if he really cared he would have skipped the trial and gone straight to the hanging.

A saying that so aptly applies to these embarrassing efforts to placate the racists and race hustlers:

“If you give the devil a ride, he’s sure as hell gonna wanna drive.”

When a herd stampedes, you never know when or toward what that stampede will turn. If I am in a store and a herd of ferazl vermin storm in and threaten my life, I will use as many rounds as I can fire off to stop the stampede in my direction. You cannot know in advance that these feral vermin will just break things and steal things. There are knockdown games afoot. I don’t intend to take that attack without defending myself the best way I know how.
