Skip to comments.CBC (Congressional Black Caucus): Zimmerman acquittal could spark race riots
Posted on 06/11/2012 2:07:45 PM PDT by Zakeet
Race riots could ensue if George Zimmerman -- the shooter in the Trayvon Martin case -- is found not guilty of second-degree murder by a Florida jury, the Congressional Black Caucus' executive director allowed yesterday.
"I think a 'not guilty' verdict is extremely problematic in 2012," said Angela Rye, the Executive Director and General Counsel for the Congressional Black Caucus. She said, "I don't know," when asked what would happen in the event of an acquittal. "I know that folks have talked about race riots -- I don't know that. I think that we live in a day and age where people are educated enough not to do that. I know that his mother and his father have asked for peace, peaceful solutions, not repaying evil for evil, so I'm not sure. I think it would set us back . . . there's no value to racial violence or any other kind of violence."
Rye cited the media handling of the Trayvon Martin shooting as an example of racial bias. "To demonize a victim is always heavily criticized if it's a white woman, if it's a child -- but in this situation, this boy who was not alive anymore to tell his side of the story was quickly demonized, and that's where I take issue," she said.

I can tell you this: there will NOT be a "guilty" verdict in 2012.
Zim's attorney has already telegraphed there won't be a trial until 2013.
So she is wrong and uninformed. What a shock.
Which is exactly what that gaggle of animal waste wants to happen...
Don’t know, but if the riots do start might be able to hoard away some quick gold along with my other silver and gold.
Riot? Ha, Ha. Let them destroy their own neighborhoods. If they riot in my neighborhood, they will never leave it.
“And frankly, not much would be done to stop them so wed all best be prepared to protect ourselves.”
...the FBI estimates there are over 200 million firearms and somewhere on the order of 20 billion rounds of ammunition in private hands as of 2012.
You are right, time to stock up some more...
She should be arrested for making a threat like that -----
They don’t need no stinkin trials, just let politicians decide who to hang. And on racial grounds, no less. Brilliant. /s
Trayvon sure looks taller than 5’11” in that picture —
You know it’s lunacy when they say white crime victims are not “demonized”. A multitude of NYT’s stories are about a “poor” black guy convicted by an “all white jury” for killing the “richest white man in town”.
i am somewhat familiar to this area. longwood winter park and oviedo are predominately white. who will be doing the rioting?
will they bus the rioters in?
these areas are somewhat affluent too. hope they made investments in things other than the stock market and RE.
i just did. extra clip and 5 more boxes.
ammo now part of my monthly food budget.
Wow... that sure looks like Obama to me.
...and the beat goes on....taking America hostage!
How are the race bastards going to take an armed population hostage? Using the MSM to force them to cower and be nice fellahs by accepting the chains!
CBC (Congressional Black Caucus): Zimmerman acquittal could spark race riots
The morons of the Congressional Black Caucus can take their threats and shove them up their black......
Please, bring your damn riots and let’s get this done.
Of course they are better.
Why do you think the republicans are so scared of the Article II presidential eligibility issue?
I’m sure the last few adults at the DNC are happy as hell to hear these blowhards promise to start yet another terrorist campaign. If Scott Walker’s election was a blowout using the unions as a punching bag Mitt could clobber the Kenyan if blacks want to be the issue. I’m pretty sure gooberment union hacks are more popular than Obama’s left wing terrorist “sons.”
“”I know that folks have talked about race riots — I don’t know that. I think that we live in a day and age where people are educated enough not to do that.”
After they get through burning their own neighborhoods, they can come to Texas.
If I were the defense, I’d show the video of Trayvon’s purchase (on the site you posted). Did you see his body movements? He looks like he’s barely managing to stand. Like he’s drunk *or something*...
Betcha he’s already high.
The black mob bosses have announced what they intend to do if they don’t get the outcome they desire.
It HAS been foretold after all...
So is that why his mother lied on her affidavit for the prosecution, and travels the country stirring up racial tension while she has her hand out???
So....it would be “politically incorrect” if Zimmerman is found not guilty? Meaning, to the CBC (who in my estimation is the CRC) Zimmerman is guilty regardless of whatever exculpatory findings that may be brought before the jury.
Singers gotta sing, rioters gotta riot.
Who she callin’ a “boy”?
Real frikin’ classy jackwagons! How about you all turn that “energy” into working toward math and science degrees and get off the white man's liberal welfare plantation! Seems you still enjoy having the white man feed, cloth, and shelter you all. And that is different from slavery, how?
Get a clue jackasses! The liberals are at a rabid pace getting well funded Planned Parenthood clinics into your neighborhoods to keep your numbers low. It ain't Conservatives doing it you clueless dolts!

Usually they riot, pillage, burn, etc. their own ‘hoods first. Then, like you said, mel, “How are the race bastards going to take an armed population hostage?”
So 14% od rhw population is going to go craxy and attack the other 86%?
Let’s see how that works out for them. This ain’t LA and this ain’t NYC. They will be surprised by the outcome.

It’s in their nature:
>Im afraid that theyll over play their hand with the riots this time.
I am concerned that our government will not bring out the chain guns in time to mow down the hordes that are out to pillage.
Nationally funded black lynch mobs putting bounties on Zimmerman’s head and engaging in random acts of racial violence ARE riotous behavior and Federally criminal.
Eric Holder heads the Injustice Department. He won’t prosecute.
” bring out the chain guns in time to mow down the hordes that are out to pillage “
bring out the chain guns in time to provide covering fire for the hordes that are out to pillage
Thanks! It was definitely a rant! Insted of "race rioting" go study some math and science and improve yourselves and quit the whining. Enough!
Don’t forget they were also behind the false accusation that Tea Party members were calling them the “n” word and spitting on them, trying to stir the pot again.
This has been a set up from the start.
I worked in newborn ICU on the edge of the Cleveland ghetto for 14+ years. I saved so many black baby’s lives, and it was crushing to know that a life that could have so much purpose was being sent to the ghetto. I prayed a lot.
Amazing. Thanks for the link.
What media could she be talking about??? Is she living on this planet??? The only one demonized by the media is the white Hispanic guy who they are now trying to deny a fair trial to.
Despite her apparent belief that Zimmerman should be convicted
"apparent" -- there is nothing apparent about it. She is outright "blatant".
Rye seemed to express openness to differing accounts about the case. "I don't take issue with the facts as George Zimmerman articulates them or as a witness may have articulated them
If you don't take issue with the facts as he has articulated them, then how could you possibly think that he should be found guilty???
but there are so many conflicting stories
But you just said -- oh never mind.
and the fact that they said, well, he was kicked out of school or he smoked marijuana or whatever
Are you saying that the ME report is a lie and that his parents are lying about his school suspension.
that doesn't give you the right to take someone's life.
He is dead because he was beating another person senseless with his fists and banging his head on the sidewalk and he would not stop.
Go ahead and make him the posterboy of the CBC -- he's perfect for you.
The only problem I see regarding black riots is the fact whites are not as well organized and lack the will to mount a thorough “Teach In!”
Strange. They know they can count on whites NOT to riot. That says something about the society we live in.
I personally prefer M.Kalashnikov’s world famous point & click interface due to magazine capacity reliability& range.
your mileage may vary but that’s life.
Is there supposed to be something wrong with those pictures?
It is time to teach some basic math- 88% > 12%
Is that their excuse for ginning up a lynch mob? Somehow I have a feeling only one ‘race’ will be rioting. That’s what states have National Guard troops for.
Bless your soul! I wish the "Al Sharptons" could understand your heart. Maybe they'd change their ways knowing what is really at stake -- the future of young lives. But they continue to peddle hate.
