Skip to comments.Still no riots, why?
Posted on 07/14/2013 3:23:39 PM PDT by ProudFossil
Earlier I asked the question "Why no riots yet". I think I may have the answer. Most of the thugs who have been twitting and mouthing the hate, predictions, threats, etc., during the last two weeks are dependent upon the entititlements of the gubmint. That includes directions and orders. Since the gubmint has only said they are investigating the events about this incident, the thugs do not know what to do. Until Zero, or Sharpton, Jackson, or NAACP tells them to do something they are lost.
On a more grim note, why no investigation into the 11,000 murders that have occurred since the gangsta was shot? Many of those were infants and pre-teens. But no comment from Zero, Sharpton, Jackson, or the NAACP so no problem.
My thoughts is they are afraid of getting shot. Zimmerman just got acquitted and it stresses the fact that we have the right to defend ourselves.
Because a Not Guilty verdict was a wake-up call for a lot of people. It won’t change over night, but the eternal victims and their keepers just felt a little bit of a sting. Maybe Obummer will bring us closer - in a yin-yang type way.
Of course, they would look rather silly coming out to riot now, nearly 24 hours after the fact. Day late and a dollar short. All for the good. I never did understand rioting as a form of protest anyhow. I personally think most looters don't care about the reason why, if they have an opportunity to smash windows and grab some free merchandise and get away with it, why any reason is as good as another. Whether the Bulls win (or lose) a basketball game or some court case gets decided, it's of no major importance to them.
For some reason, the song "Street Life" by The Crusaders was running through my head all day today. Now that song first came out in 1979, it's a jazzy little number with Randy Crawford doing vocals that made it into the Top 40. Some of you old-timers might remember it. Not sure why that tune popped into my head after all these years but I kind of like it.
Oh yeah, and my other thought is that this is Sunday and they are resting up from not working all week.
The lack of legitimate grievances doesn’t provide much fuel for a fire.
In the late 60s there were still plenty of legitimate grievances to inspire anger among blacks. These days there are grievances but all Americans face them.
You could argue that a riot, with burning and all, in some parts of Detroit, would be a step in the right direction.
No riots cause Zimmerman was found innocent.
The vast majority of us white devils would have started rioting almost immediately had he been found guilty
As has been our methods.

They don’t want to ruin the weekend but....
Monday mornin coming down...
Never mind the LA riots, I would venture to guess, that gun ownership has increased 10 fold just since Obama became president.
People become violent when they feel powerless. With Obama in charge blacks don’t feel “powerless” anymore.
The reason why is simple... The event was dragged on for a REALLY LONG TIME. Wrath works best as a quick reaction, after too long of a drawn out time, like say, months of time, it’s hard to feel all worked up and energetic. Also put in mind that plenty of complexity comes to case. Plenty of people realize all too well that if someone like Martin were beating up on them, they would fight back. plenty of people probably also figure that if it wasn’t Zimmerman, Martin likely would have been fragged by street punk(s) otherwise unless he really changed his ways around. He had plenty of rediculous garbage that he spewed out of himself as a proud punk on Social Media, how many people do you think saw that?
Also, I think most of the whining comes around now by the people who figured that ideal supposedly “liberal” jury would rule as they hoped for, but didn’t. Anyways, most of the rants from those on the left that I know locally has amounted for asking to “let it go”, or “no comment”, and I wonder if people saying that has some bearing.
I'm sure they provide much amusement for their black classmates.
Weekend, Monday morning, what’s the difference if you’re not working. One day is pretty much the same as the next.
Two reasons, social media and lack of direction. Social media gave people a voice without leaving their homes. the handlers of lowinfo voters are simply not willing to leave a digital fingerprint of instruction to them.
I’ve been in a few of those vans . Pretty high $$$ .
Bingo. Z's lawyers did such a good job of presenting the facts that my opinion of lawyers actually went up a degree or two. It's plainly evident to anyone breathing that this was a political show trial, not a criminal trial.
and that’s the ONLY reason.
those idiots only prey on tourist and the lone liberal who wonders in their midst being naive enough to believe that since they also voted for Obama they are safe from the rioting mobs.
The internet is your friend. My best suggestion - next time, duck.
Pansy azz white liberals. It’s not a riot unless a few cars burn and some stores are looted.
There are no major riots because WE ARE WATCHING, these cowards only do their thuggery when you don’t expect it.. Sucker-punch, sneak attack, jumping from behind, sound familiar???..
They watched this trial with astonishment that we didn’t cower in fear of them, and we are ready for them, locked and loaded...
They talk real tough on Twitter. But they have no real personal investment in Trayvon. They have enough free shit and drugs to keep them anesthetized. They don’t have the balls or the commitment to take it to the streets. They’re just like 0bama: They think saying it is the same as doing it. Losers.
This is what I warned by kids about. Be situationally aware of your surroundings and be prepared to leave immediately or run. Keep a 360 degree eye out. Watch where you drive. Don't get boxed in at red lights.
I thought it was DWS with the black shirt. Looks a bit like Deb.
Even in the most liberal county in Michigan.
>>Increasing popularity of carrying concealed guns prompts county office to bolster staff (MI)<<
The total number of homicides in the U.S., reported by the FBI, is about 12,000-13,000 annually.
Wouldn't that be normal, though? Pants are always down.
While perusing the comments on this thread, I turned on the tv, and the local news is giving lots of airtime to small pockets of protestors around the state. The media is continuing to fan the flames of racism, and will get their riots if it’s the last thing they do.
“a weird combination of crazy eyes...”
I just saw on the news a small group of protesters in Dallas last night led by....Cynthia McKinney.
That’s exactly who I would choose to lead something I consider serious..rolls eyes.
All quiet here in Atlanta. Went to Walmart and came out unscathed. Staying out the mall for awhile though. :-)
Will not happen and by the end of the week all this will be forgotten and what you will hear is “George who?” or “Trayvon who?”
That sounds about right.
It’s too hot. The thugs had rather sit under the A/C.
And the men are always grubby-looking, and the women are always skanky-looking.
Ah heck, I hate to say it, but they are a lot like us anymore. A whole lottta internet bitchin’ is so much easier than actually showing up.
A well armed population is a polite population?
Also because you have to remember it is the middle of summer and way too hot to riot.
"Stealing something" is the personal self interest that motivated most of the rioters in 92 and the Katrina looters. Another commenter pointed out that they chased almost all the business out of their neighborhoods and they would have to go too far to do any serious looting. That and more storekeepers have guns in their establishments and are more likely to use them. Many if not most of them have seen vids of the LA and Miami riots and have been impressed with the Koreans' and Cubans' guns and readiness to use them. Like the great majority of such people they are not Big Brave Men out to Face Danger to Right a Wrong, they are looking for safe easy loot, not dangerous loot.
Plus a lot of ministers have stepped up to the plate, and a number of Bible-holding grandmothers, mothers,and aunts WARNED their dear ones NOT to react with violence to the verdict.
Oh, I would like little better than to throw all this under the rug and move onto greater things.
But then I look cross the aisle to the Left, and I know better.
You got a good point about social media; it lets people blow off steam.
And yes, L.A., even prior to Rodney King’s encounter with the LAPD, was a powderkeg searching for a match. The Rampart Scandal of a few years later showed that issues of police corruption wasn’t just a few liberals and community organizers whining about nothing - the Rampart Scandal has to be one of the worst police corruption scandals I can recall in my lifetime of 43 years.
Hell, it even led to a great TV show: “The Shield”, and served as an inspiration for the film “Training Day”.
