CBC (Congressional Black Caucus): Zimmerman acquittal could spark race riots
Beltway Confidential ^ | June 11, 2012 | Joel Gehrke

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 think a 'not guilty' verdict is extremely problematic in 2012," said Angela Rye, the Executive Director and General Counsel for the Congressional Black Caucus.

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.

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.

Just saying.

“And frankly, not much would be done to stop them so we’d all best be prepared to protect ourselves.”

Let’s see...

...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...

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’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.”

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.

Mobocracy.
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.

Hey CBC! Exactly what kind of rioting? If you plan on attacking whites and white Hispanics in their homes or daily life then you'll simply be shot in self-defense. Or do you mean you all will destroy the shops of small business owners?

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!

"I had never heard of “lean” before yesterday, but apparently it is a concoction made from certain prescription cough syrups and a beverage medium, often made more palatable with candy.

One of the recipes for “lean” calls for using Arizona Iced Tea Co.watermelon fruit juice cocktail as the beverage of choice, and Skittles candy… the items found on Trayvon Martin’s body the night he was shot by George Zimmerman."

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.

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.

It certainly appears the feckless pubbies are afraid of the fifth column media. There is also that issue of them having endorse McCain who was probably not technically a NBC either since he was actually born in the Colon, Panama hospital not in the base clinic. There is also the money to be withheld from their re election coffers by the property owners whose buildings would be burned by the jungle mentality gangsta caucus herd beasts when summoned by the ‘community organizers’ and union thuggery. OUR Constitution ceased to restraint he political bastards of both parties way back even before Johnson instituted the newest method of democrat enslavement of black people. I have no illusions that republicans are actually honest and patriotic, but they want desperately to continue to live off of the federal teats and feel powerful so they might take a constitutional approach on the odd issue, occasionally.

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.

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.
