Zimmerman protests: Wal-Mart shoppers recall chaos, trashed store
LA Times ^ | 7/16/13 | Ruben Vives and Kate Mather

Posted on 07/16/2013 11:25:51 AM PDT by kevcol

Shoppers at a Wal-Mart on Crenshaw Boulevard described a scene of chaos and mayhem Monday night as unruly protesters stormed the store, tossing merchandise and trying to loot jewelry cases. . . . The women said they saw clothes on the floor and a little girl crying.

“She must have been in the middle of it,” Erica Williams said.

The two left the store and watched as the crowd continued to gather on Crenshaw Boulevard. When they decided to go shopping, they thought they were a safe distance from any potential problems.

Serves Wal-Mart right for putting a store on Crenshaw Boulevard.They must have determined the entire facility should be accounted for as a loss-leader when they built it.

LAPD Chief Charlie Beck put the public on notice that officers would be taking a more aggressive posture toward protesters beginning Tuesday. "This will not be allowed to continue," he said.

I'll believe that when I see it.

They must be slipping.

The Rodney King verdict was delivered on the afternoon of April 29, 1992 and by that afternoon they were rioting in full force. By May 1 the riot had reached a plateau. On May 9 the troops pulled out and 52 / 53 people were dead and S. Central was left in rubble.

At least they kept it local.

Those shoppers should have run to the book department. They’d have been safe there.

Remember. The family that loots together, stays together.

What’s the big deal? If WalMart is stupid enough to locate on Crenshaw then they must have a serious insurance policy for shoplifting and vandalism. I bet they make a mint there too - probably 75% of revenue from EBT/SNAP/WIC.

That the white creepy ass libs put the Trayvon story connected with looting is telling me that the manufactured story is not long for the media headlines and they want to move on to which gay couple is going to get married next.

“Looting” is a racist code word. You should say “non traditional shopping” instead. /s

I love the clueless doofus with the sign that says, "I have a son who looks like Trayvon."

That's wonderful, but the meaningful question is ...DOES HE ACT LIKE TRAYVON??

If I were WM or any chain retailer that has a store looted by feral black youth, that store would be closed immediately, and never to re open.

The community agitators probably demanded a store and they obliged. They were repaid with looting.

Also notice that the “s” in “Looks” was added after the fact. I bet it was the photographer who corrected the grammar before taking the pic.

Don’t blame the Trayvons. Blame the race hustlers and their media whores, beginning with the race hustler and chief, Obama.

In DC the city council blocked Wal-Mart from opening some stores there.

If Walmart has any sense they will stay out of Washington DC with their new stores.

Consider this a preview.

DC didn't block WM, just demanded they pay 50% higher wages.

WM said FU.

Yeah, it’s all about Zimmerman and not the urge be totally out of control and trash or take things. Reminds me of badly raised 4 year olds.

Too bad we don’t have a policy that looters will be shot, like was at least threatened in decades gone by.

Just as many of us predicted. The looting has begun.
The more the race baiters egg it on, the greater potential of it worsening
