SANFORD, Fla. - A group of students protesting the Trayvon Martin shooting on Monday blocked the entrance to the Sanford Police Department by kneeling in front of the doors, forcing the department to close.

No arrests have been made in the Monday protest, which comes a day after the students, who call themselves the Dream Defenders, completed a 40-mile, three-day march from Daytona Beach to Sanford, where Martin, 17, was shot and killed by neighborhood watchman George Zimmerman in late February.

I can't recall ANY Police Department being "shut down". Wouldn't this constitute a threat to public safety?

I say break out the bear spray on anyone that would obstruct/inhibit first responders from their duties.

Well this is no fun.

The best part of this stuff is watching them tossed around in the street by water-cannons.

I guess city manager Norton Bonaparte, Jr. is about the biggest pussy I ever heard of. They are SHUTTING DOWN A POLICE STATION, you mega-dork.

Imagine how differently things would have gone if a group of protesters had forced an abortion clinic to close by kneeling in front of it.
Racism is alive and well.

Today is a school day. The enablers of these children teaching them that education is for dummies and its more important to chime in on racial justice issues they know nothing about.

"If Dr. (Martin Luther) King were alive today, he would know that his dream has not come true," said Stetson University student Jelissa Conway.

I don't know about that. It seems that Trayvon got what the content of his character asked for.

Well, I guess the public's just going to have to defend itself now!

Police departments don't "shut down", they "choose to close".

If anything, misplaced white guilt and PC fear shut those doors...

Midday today @ SFD office, there were approximately 30 “protestors” at SPD, one black SPD policeman, observing and a camera crew/reporters(2). There were what could have been 8-10 people just loitering/taking photos, etc.
Also on Local TV Provider/ BrightHouse Networks show tape of Protestors walking on side of road . Waking same direction as Traffic. Then followed with an answer to a question if it’s illegal to walk facing traffic on a highway?
The answer given by a Florida State Trooper was it is Illegal to walk on the side of a roadway, in the same direction as the flow of traffic. A walker has to face oncoming traffic.
Who would have thought they would not abide by all laws.

Too bad these "meddling kids" don't put this much effort into their school work.

A couple of dozen protesters and 1/2 of ‘em are 3X-Plus sized couch patatoes and old hippies. What a pack of drama-queen losers.

Hey - come on... these are liberal elite "young' students - they're better than the rest of us.

Fifty thousand citizens elected the Sanford city government - but less than 50 LIBERAL ELITES from around the country - - are better AND MORE IMPORTANT than those 50,000 citizens. If liberal elites want to close a city down, that's their right.

They're better than you DCBryan - better than all of us. And if you don't think so, ask the liars at NBC...

Bet the cops are on “paid leave”.

Otherwise, don’t you think, they might have something to say about these darling little Trayvons taking food off their family’s table?

If that’s all it takes to shut down the PD, that pretty much blows the argument that you should rely on the police to protect you instead of carrying a firearm out of the water.

I wonder how much the value of real estate in Sanford will be dropping now. Enough with all the drama of the past few weeks, but then to think the police are acquiescing to these protestors is just unbelievable.

Can the police spread out in different locations in the city and just let those idiots stand out in the heat?

Police would still be police but they would just fan out so the “students” won’t be able to hassle dispersed LEO and the public would have LEO.

Every day they can set different locations within districts, so the “students” won’t able to know where LEO is - a police flash mob, so to speak.

The ‘protesters’ are looking for a fight - these 50 people basically represent themselves - fight them and their numbers will double. Ignore them and they’ll go away...

No matter what the police do the msm will make them look bad.
Remember a black pity story is good for the white guilt mob.
