Waiting for the other shoe with Zimmerman
july 14, 2013 | vanity

Posted on 07/14/2013 6:08:13 AM PDT by ProudFossil

I am waiting for the riots. So far there is only the usual bitching by the ding-a-lings in San Francisco and Oakland. There is more merrymaking after a football game than what has happened. Where are the riots. (crickets chirping)

I have an idea. We have all been remarking about how the media has blown this trial sky high. Is it possible they are also blowing the possibility of rioting sky high in order to retain some credibility?. I am beginning to think so. I do hope I am right.

Zimmerman? Any relation to Bobby Zimmerman of Hibbing, MN?

(I missed this one altogether. But it’s not surprising. I never saw a minute of the OJ trial either. And I’m still not sure I understand the Bronco thing.)

IMHO there will be no riots. They will bide their time and do “hit and run” violence using social media to organize a “surprise attack” when people and the authorities aren’t prepared or expected to respond. I live in Fl. (around 1.5 hrs. from Sanford) and have already been seeing this behavior for a while. Memorial day it happened in several cities here in Fl.

The hood loves to stick it to whitey, but I think deep down they understand violence above all else and that Z did what he had to do.

No. The media's like a rogue fireman that starts fires so he can show up and be a hero. They're just piling up kindling and handing matches to the 9 year olds hoping they'll torch it so they can stand back with their cameras and cluck their tongues and sell some soap and Viagra.

I am watching the timeline with curiosity.

In past “civil unrest” incidents, it only took scant hours for the riots to start.

The clock is now at 11 hours and counting, and we only have protest reports and one riot location.

Fat Albert is headed for Orlando “in the next few weeks”, so he proclaims. Jesse Jackpot and the rest of Team Blackness have chimed in, but no shout-outs to the troops have been forthcoming.

It’s just too quiet out there...

There will be mischief at the very least. But it will be interesting to see if it gets critical mass anywhere.

I pretty much ignored the “I gonna kill a crackah if Z goes free” posts. They don’t act alone like that. That was just internet chest pounding. They also know that crazy ass crackers have been buying so many guns and ammo that there is a shortage.

I think the long term effects of this trial are going to be very, very good.

Depends on location. Where I work (Obama Central, Arlington VA) the blacks will be glum or angry just like the liberals. But across the river in DC is another story. Less education, poor job advancement prospects, and life is cheap.

Now you see, that’s the problem with manufacturing these days ... nothing good to steal. We got the Air Jordans from the riots several years back. Everyone in da hood has a flat screen from last year’s Black Friday. We were thinking about rioting but face it, there is nothing worth the trouble. Sure, the Koreans have some nice stuff in their store but hell no, we sure learned our lesson about trying to rip off the Koreans. Ain’t going there. Nope, nothing worth stealing.

There's been sporadic stuff goin on around the country, but no burn da f’n hood down....ahl up in dere.

Zimmerman now will face a civil suit and likely the outcome will be the same. Even if not, he’z a free man.

The likes of Sharpton began fueling the flames shortly after the verdict was read. We are divided as a nation and it's just something were gonna have to live with.

We (white folks) are not going to change the minds of the ignorant inner city black. Just not going to happen. They have little reasoning skills and are so prone to being whipped up in a frenzy by all the poverty pimps.

Zimmerman was wrong getting out of his vehicle, but that does not give young Trayvon the right to begin whoopin up on the geeky watch captain.

Fact...Zimmerman did not use his weapon until he was laying on his back being hammered by this black guy. Zimmerman likely had absolutely no idea Trayvon was the innocent sweet teenager that he was.

They already do flash mobs and ‘random’ attacks. It is never reported in the news as minority on White assaults. The minority perps are given a free pass to continue assaulting other Whites.

I really think that the would be “rioters” are just rioting on twitter and other social media. Our country is totally doomed. Is anyone reading the threats being posted by thugs all over the internet? The media successfully created a narrative, the President gave it credence and now, individuals with the worst grammar possible are taking to twitter and other social media for their “rioting”.

I am a parent. Am I the last parent to teach a child manners? Am I the last parent in this country to teach a child that cryptic posts on twitter will follow them forever?

If you are in the “news business” you need news. And a post Zimmerman trial riot would certainly be news. So has the MSM promoted the idea of riots as “good for business”.

As a famous lady once said: You betcha.

This Big Bad Hood attitude is what got little Trayvon killed and it’s what kills 9000 black kids per year. Yet, they don’t care. They love and embrace this culture.

I agree that the tweets, posts and rants online by the thugocracy is little more than “gorillas in the mist”. But that being that, it’s hardly inconsequential.

Thing is, we are dealing with groupthink on a nationwide scale. If the message gets put out loud and often enough, we’ll see ash in the skies.

Can there be a civil suit if someone is declared Not Guilty?

Who brings the suit, in which court and on what grounds and if they do, will it be accepted? If a suit is brought, the plaintiff pays the costs upfront and there will be discovery, this time, and all of TM’s past history will come out.

If nothing have been filed by tomorrow morning, I think we can assume it is all over.

Speaking of vanity threads, I am considering one that inquires if a 22 would have been as effective if it followed the same path through the heart.

I have arthritis in my right wrist and the sharpness of the Keltec P-3AT is making for a lot of pain after a little range time.

Anyone have a forensic opinion? I was watching the testimony of the forensic expert, but I didn’t see the issue addressed.

Just as a follow up. We found out that a center mass shot could take out the entire heart and you would still be in danger for up to 15 seconds. 15 seconds is a LONG time in a deadly encounter. While I realize a larger caliber would also tend to knock back the target, they could still get back up and continue the attack.

In a “grappling” situation, a head shot would be very difficult.

There will be no riots, although there will be many trying to incite them.

I doubt there will be a civil suit against Zimmerman.

There should be many civil suits filed by Zimmerman

I tend to agree.

Despite the obligatory, face-saving bluster and posturing of the BGI - from the top players officed in the halls of power, all the way down to the street thugs - I think many have always known that this was a sham, that there was always overwhelmingly reasonable doubt, and that any system that would convict in such a case could destroy everything they cherish as well.

It would be the useful idiots doing the rioting, not the movers and shakers of the BGI and Leftist establishment. Only the useful idiots would have anything to lose on the streets, and perhaps they are not actually that idiotic.

For me, the silence speaks volumes, a hesitant pause among people from whom I did not expect it. A fight averted when an aggressor was stared down, blinks, looks down and walks away. Hopefully, I am right that something has shifted, some moment of understanding and insight for these people, a glimpse of what it means to be an American in the finest sense of what this country used to be.

There is always plenty of “news”. It is just what is acceptable to the MSM.

If it comes down to it there are always interesting burglaries, or even speeding tickets.

I certainly hope that this is a point where we start to get our country back.

If so, we can thank Second Amendment supporters for it, and those who undertake the responsibility of exercising their Second Amendment rights.

Yes, there will be a civil suit most likely brought by Trayvon’s parents. It’s all bout the payday now.

Remember O.J. Simpson? After he was aquitted, the Goldmans brought a civil suit against O.J. and he lost.
