It begins. And of course, it’s Oakland. The anti-police agitators there have used any excuse to break things, disrupt what little peace is left in that overrun city, and incur huge taxpayer and business owner expenses.

      • Mary123s

        this has nothing to do with conservatives or liberals…these idiots choose to destroy their town. If Gov Davis had any balls, he should , tell them “you break it, you bought it” and jail those they catch that are responsible.

        you do realize that typically rioters are not actually liberals (if you know the definition of the word), but rather radicals or anarchists, yeah? maybe before you imply people are stupid, you should buy a freakin dictionary, man.

      no, this was just an excuse to go out & trash the town. this is just the occupy crowd again. they will riot at any excuse.

      • radicallyalyssa

        That’s what my dad said. “Any excuse to destroy their own town.” Thank goodness Oakland’s a dump, anyway.

        • Sherri Cruz (D-Ret)

          There are some parts of Oakland that are quite lovely. The interesting thing is that the majority of this rag-tag bunch of Occupy Oakland hangers-on don’t actually live in Oakland.

          • pilot007

            Prob bussed in by the DOJ. Great point Sherri Cruz. As in most communities, there are good folks and neighborhoods, and a small group of dark minded anarchists that are takers…not makers, and now the demoncrats bussed crowd added to the mix..

      • Sherri Cruz (D-Ret)

        EXACTLY. As someone who lived in Oakland during the Occupy and FTP times, I can agree that it is the same bunch of losers under the guise of a different “cause”. Same bunch didn’t really give a damn about Oscar Grant..it was an excuse to smash things, burn things, and steal whatever they could.

      • Sherri Cruz (D-Ret)

        They want to feel relevant again, since their weekly FTP marches fizzled out. The problem is that Weed Head Melvin, Bella, Oakland Elle and domestic abusing boyfriend, fellow “medic” Adam never really were.

    • rennyangel2

      Shoot a few of them and give them a real reason to riot. They are only ruining their own “nest” where insurers will withdraw, banks close, anyone vaguely middle class will move out, and there will be nothing left for DECADES–just as happened in NJ in 1967–NONE of those cites (Camden, Trenton, Paterson, Jersey City, Newark–even as an international port, including Asbury Park that has had 3 attempts at “rejuvenation” and still languishes in part-rehab 45 years later) has completely recovered in any sense.

      Let Oakland join them, burn down the city, trash your homes, and enjoy the squalor and degradation that goes along with a permanent slum. All over a verdict that was hyped and lied about by NBC and MSNBC and other “news” from the start.

      • Mary123s

        No, don’t shoot anyone. More song fodder for CSNY and Springsteen.

      • aclay777

        Shoot them with the rubber bullets you mean, local governments killing them will only make things worse. stinging them and a bruise for a few days will be most effective.

      • Farleyagain

        Why not bring in the national guard and arrest anyone who smashes a window or jaywalks on the spot? Put em in jail. Let them wait their turn for the public defender and the judge. We’ll get their names and addresses and have it for the next time in the next city. Why do cities allow this destruction to happen when it is unnecessary and destroys their domain?

      • Guest MVP

        They already did that. Oscar Grant. Shot the kid in the head in cold blood. But the right actually started worshiping the cop who murdered the kid. There were no riots

      • NoCalDataDiva

        Rennyangel, it is NOT their “own nest.” These lowlifes come from out of town, using whatever political unrest may be going on, as an excuse to trash our city.

        • Sherri Cruz (D-Ret)

          And many of these lowlifes are trust fund babies playing revolutionary, just to piss off mom and dad because their check was a day late last month.

    • SpinMeNot

      No, no, and no. Asking a fourth question — doesn’t why doesn’t the community of law abiding, hard working citizens with black skin police this kind of behavior themselves.

      Burning flags … wow. I had hoped I would live long enough to never see this again.

      • 2013_garvey

        There are plenty of hard-working decent black people whom abhor this too. Please be careful not to generalize.

      • radicallyalyssa

        I’m sure that black people that are hardworking and law abiding have no desire to put themselves at risk to make a point. Plus being called an “Uncle Tom” is probably really annoying after a while.

        • Destiny Bowser

          my question is who said it was black people or should I say Just black people alone whats being missed in the majority of these pics that I have seen it is more white people and other races than it is blacks! Everyone is angry about this not just Blacks!

          • radicallyalyssa

            Someone left the TV at work today on HLN, and I never happened to change it. While one white chick mentioned it to me, saying she wasn’t surprised at all by the verdict, more black patrons than I can count have bitched at me or to the TV (when they realized I wasn’t listening) about the verdict.

            If you ignore the faux outrage by some, particularly the idiots in Oakland that are in the photos to which you’re referring, the real outrage is coming from black people. Oakland is an OccupyWhateverWeCan hellhole that’s made up of nothing but white stoners.

          • Destiny Bowser

            Do u honestly think anybody cared just what you thought are you serious….girl it does not matter and to call those people white stoners who are u to judge them you dont know them and I dont either! Hell I was mad and screaming at the tv as well when I heard the verdict… how does that hurt you… it doesnt so why do you care…. I am affected by this just as much as anyone else because personally I have to raise a black MAN… I have to teach him yes honey we dont live in the hood but because of the type of people that are out there I dont want you outside after the street lights are on… you need to understand we are tired of the killings there are murders that are not heard of that happen locally by white cops shooting black men while they are asleep in there cars and getting away with it Emmit Till killed for no reason and no justice was served back then… It is bad that in 2013 a man can be sent to jail over killing a dog for a year and some months and can be put on probation for 23 months, a woman goes to jail for 20 years for shooting 2 warning shots in the air on her land with the protect your ground law, it is sad that a man goes to jail for 2 years accidently shooting himself in the leg…. shall I go on…. and GZ gets off for killing a kid 3 weeks into being 17 that is armed with an Arizona Iced Tea and a bag of skittles…. so if your mad about the bitching walk away because its nothing personal towards you its just time for a change and I live in the south honey aint nothing you can tell me about anything. “A system cannot fail those that it was never meant to PROTECT” W.E.B. DuBois

          • radicallyalyssa

            I’m not reading all that LOL. I stopped when I read that you’re “raising a black man,” and therefore it “affects” you. No it doesn’t, not if you raise your kid well. If you raise your kid not to be a criminal, which Martin was, since he was selling an illegal gun.

            You picture Trayvon as a little guardian angel, and compare him to other, TRUE icons of black oppression and racism. What an ignorant, overreaching girl you are. Shame on you. Trayvon didn’t die because he was black, he was shot because he was on top of another man, beating him up, and didn’t realize the dude had a gun.

            Should Trayvon have died? I don’t think so, especially now that this stupid case has caused an uproar in “OMG WE ARE STILL A RACIST COUNTRY.” Puh-lease; we have a black president, Attorney General, Justice, and there are more black people employed by the government than every other race combined. This shit doesn’t affect you, just like it doesn’t affect me, my mother, my neighbor, or my employer.

            As a final note: if you plan on going further in life, I’d open a book and read. Your spelling is ATROCIOUS, and Americans should have better knowledge of their own language than you are. Public education is free, and you should really take advantage of it.

            really nothing was spelled wrong and if it was it was because u pissed me off and I was typing fast yeah I read everything you wrote and I do raise my child up very well thank u but hey that wont stop you from thinking he is a thug…. my child is now 8 at 6 years old some children told him they could not play with him because he was black so kill your self on that note… it affects me and your not in my shoes better yet in my skin to know how we feel so have a nice life and go play in traffic some where bye!

          • DG

            It affects anyone raising a black male because that could have been their son being shot. It has nothing to do with him being a criminal, that’s like me saying it’s wrong for a random white guy to walk through my nieghborhood at night. No one knew he was a “criminal” until after they did a background check and that information is irrelevant to the fact that he was killed over something stupid.

          • radicallyalyssa

            It doesn’t affect “anyone raising a black male.” Black people have advanced so much, why are they trying to set themselves back?

          • DG

            The fuck are you talking about. Anyone who is raising a black male knows that their son could have been in Trayvon’s place. I was talking about the case…I wasn’t talking about the riots.

          • SpinMeNot

            Trayvon Martin was not a kid. He was a thief, a drug user, and looking to buy a gun of his own. Had Trayvon Martin been the shooter, he would have been tried as an adult.

            Get over yourself. If Trayvon had gone straight home instead of wandering around looking in yards, etc, and had not doubled back to confront Zimmerman, and had not initiated a physical conflict, he would be alive today.

            And lets cover this now .. the dispatcher said “we don’t need you to do that”, not “do not continue to follow the individual”.

            Zimmerman committed no crime. Please provide references for the cases you state resulted in wrongful criminal convictions. Hint, they weren’t wrongful. Firing a gun into the air is a crime, you don’t know where the bullets are going to land. The dog issue, I cannot comment, because I don’t know the circumstance. The shooting in the leg — I think you are talking about the case where one friend asked another to shoot him in the leg because he wanted to know what it felt like. A .22 at close range is more then capable of inflicting a fatal wound should it hit an artery, the criminal conviction was correct, reckless endangerment.

            Any more nonsense you want to vomit? Facts are hard, I know ….

          • Pamela Hendrix

            although i agree 20 years is too long a sentence, how is it standing your ground when you leave the area of imminent danger, return with a gun and shoot at a wall(not the ceiling) bullet ricocheted in the ceiling? That woman was NO LONGER IN IMMINENT danger.

          • SpinMeNot

            Ma’am — did you intend to reply to me or the bat-crap crazy Ms. Destiny? My spelling is pretty good, my typing is atrocious.

            20 years for someone that recklessly discharges a firearm into a wall as a warning shot … seems about right to me.

            Use a firearm responsibility, and this means shooting to kill if you draw it on another person, or don’t pick it up.

          • TexSizzle

            It is conjecture that he would be alive today; he seemed to be looking for trouble, and might have found it with someone else at a later date, and wound up just as dead.

          • SpinMeNot

            agreed, it was conjecture. I do not disagree with your assertion at all.

          • radicallyalyssa

            For someone who knows everything about the case (sarcasm, since you probably won’t pick up on that), it wasn’t Arizona Iced Tea. It was a watermelon flavored Arizona drink. My personal favorite flavor, actually. Did you pay attention at all the case, cause that was clarified weeks ago. Seems you’re ignorant of that, too. Also, “u” isn’t a word. It’s “you.”

            You make this way too easy.

          • Markward

            Travyon was no angel. He beat up a homeless man- for fun! His friends recorded it!

            Sorry, no remorse for the criminal. He thought he could beat up anyone and all he got for it 124 grains of justice in 9mm.

          • Mr_Wrestling_XIII

            Actually, Trayvon did not beat up a homeless guy. He filmed two homeless guys fighting over a bike. *sigh* It looks like both pro-Zimmerman or Pro-Trayvon people don’t care about facts.

          • Markward

            Oh, my bad. I will make sure to keep it in mind for the future.

        • SpinMeNot

          That was a serious question. I graduated high school, in 1967, raised by a father that was post-racial long before there was such a term. I joined the Army in late 1967, and started my training in early 1968. I left the Army in 1985.

          My best friend, a person that I had known man and boy died next me to in 1972 in the jungles of South East Asia. Skin is meaningless, character is everything.

          Being called Uncle Tom should be considered a badge of honor. Both for the fact that it is used to describe those members of the black community that strive to be Americans first and foremost, and secondly, because Uncle Tom was a figurative Christ in the classic Stowe novel.

          • radicallyalyssa

            First, I’d like to say to God bless you for your service. I appreciate your hard work for our country.

            Next, I know it was a serious question, but my answer was also serious. Black conservatives, I’d expect, would be just like me – not willing to sacrifice my welfare or the welfare of my family to play vigilante or go make a speech to teach these idiots a lesson. Of course, I have the courage of a watermelon, so you can picture that as me!

            I agree with your final point – however, in this day and age, “Uncle Tom” is a derogatory term, unfortunately. I believe any black man that considers himself a true conservative is good in my book; they’re brave and stronger than most. They don’t toe the liberal, kool-aid drinking line, and that’s respectable.

          Have you actually seen the pics from this riots I mean all of them go to Instagram where they are showing the riots as they were in progress I seen all of 5 Black people in one pic the rest of the crowd was white so to say ‘white riots’ this just may be that because they are the main ones out there… Americans are upset with the verdict not just Black People….

      • SpinMeNot

        I read an interesting paper a few months back by a liberal-arts professor that claimed the violence in the black community is the result of the violence in the Irish and Italian immigrant communities post civil war. It was rather convincing, with the notable exception of the fact that its been more than 100 years since the “inheritance.”

    • Patrick January

      I completely agree Catherder. Tho I am appalled by the verdict (not because I am black, but because a child was killed by a grown man), I STILL do not think breaking and destroying a neighborhood like a bunch of pissed off teenager will get anything done. They are disgracing Trayvon’s parents and the STRENGTH and CLASS they showed during the verdict.

        A “child”? At 17 years old, he would have been handled as an adult by the court system, if he had successfully beaten Zimmerman to death.

        • Bathing Suit Area

          And if he had, you’d totally have believed his claim of self defense just like you believed Zimmerman, right?

      The word “excuse” hits the nail on the head. I like how one person pointed out that the “cops” (it was 911) urged Zimmerman to stay back, they took out their aggression on the police anyway. Just goes to show there are other motives at work.

      • aclay777

        Sometimes the police gets a BAD WRAP, this is one of those times, It’s the state prosecutors that messed this whole thing up, not the cops, the cops should have made to call, not bypassing them and getting an illegal indictment, beyond the police evidence, who are the experts on the evidence, not the prosecutor.

        • The Monster

          I believe the term you’re looking for is “bad rap”, where “rap” refers to the spoken word, and also alludes to “bad rep(utation)”. No actual wrapping is involved therein.

          • Robert Quinn

            if not for white who will join the seals lol.

      • The Monster

        Actually, not even “911” did any such thing. The dispatcher said “we don’t need you to do that.” I don’t need you to eat anything. I did not just urge you to fast, nor to binge, nor anything else. In fact, I did precisely the opposite of “urge” you to any course of action, by stating that following a particular line does not satisfy any need of mine.

        Note that “we need you to not do that” is exactly the same words in a subtly-different order, which means something very, very different.

        One of the reasons I’m so damned picky about this is that the Left routinely changes what we say to erect a straw man against which they can argue. By redefining the argument, they win before we can even put up a fight.

        That was dumb John! If that all the “black race” is good for why did your race bring us over here to build you country and work your plantations? Now had you said “that was all the “Black Thugs are good for” then you would not look so foolish but being that you have lumped all black people into this belief of yours, you now show your colors which are dark and ugly.

        • aclay777

          I apologize for John, we know he’s the Caucasian version of whats rioting. Please accept my gratitude for all of what your race has done, in equal friendship, for all Americans.

          • Guest MVP

            LOL the people who sold us off were not our own any more than Nazi Germans can identify with Americans. What a shmuck. Also if you are truly racist White people killed more of their “own” than anyone. WWI and WWII combined was 70 million. So I guess you are part of a murdering race. Then again I’m not a racist idiot like you

      exactly. Black people are the racists! And I think America is getting sick and tired of it. Thank God our court system was able to prevail and an innocent man was not sent to prison because Black people want to start riots when a person of a different race kills one of them but they say nothing in an opposite scenario or if it’s black on black…they are HYPOCRITES!

      • Rodtfactor

        Remember this my friend by your saying “black people are the racists” shows that you are one too. Do you know all black people?? or any??

        • aclay777

          I’m sorry Rod, I guess some had their white hoods buried in the closet waiting to be dusted off. These generalized statements as to “all” puts them in the same category as the rioters, only bolstering it instead of condemning it, the cops are not the bad guys this time, like in the Rodney King incident.

        • Sacha Desousa

          No shit. I can’t believe the racist shit coming out on here. These issues are serious, idiotic rioting is infuriating, and people can be ignorant hypocrites – yes, of course black people as well – but are you for real Janet and John? When you start to generalize and separate people, forgetting how big the world around you is, and how many different people are on this planet – you are one step away from being just like a Nazi. Or is that something you agree with? Mass murder, ethnic cleansing, and Hitler are totally cool with you? You think we shouldn’t have fought that war then? Seriously, how arrogant can you be to think that societal issues, even ones that involve race issues, can be summed up by claiming that an entire race of people are just “bad”? You honestly think that? That is so stupid it’s laughable. Get a grip. Go watch a documentary on MLK and the civil rights movement or something, which you should have already done in grade school. Fucking small minded, soulless insanity. Scary.

        • Farleyagain

          Every racist I know is black. It’s more of a chip on the shoulder against whites any white person, than anything. I guess that’s racism. But no, this is not to say, my neighbors who are black are of that mindset, just some others I know – not in my business circles, mind you, but elsewhere.

        • SuMB

          that is no friend of yours…

        • Hal Fast

          Rod factor, fact; 97% of the black racist community voted for Obama for more hand outs, and envy of the rich whitey (coveting), redistribution of wealth (sealing by the Chicago thug politics through a out of control rough Muslim regime in the WH now who lies, steals and cheats the American people constantly and helps the Muslim brotherhood and our direct terrorist enemies), and consistantly votes for,the first racist party in America. Yes, the party of the KKK, the black panthers and of the confederate flag, and causing over 700,000 Americans to die on America soil. Yes so we can’t say all blacks, that is true, just 97% by stats that sold out to the sell out and slanderer, liar, and thief, who is working on all fronts to destroy the Constitution so he can allow Muslim sharia law in America and enslave all Americans through obamacare/IRS, and killing the good flow of energy recources like coal and oil to this country. Figure it out yet you sell out rodtfactor?

          And how many times have you looked at a white man and thought he isnt being treated fairly? NEVER white people died to free black people and this is all the thanks we get. Racism works both ways.

        • Janet

          So by your standard every black person crying that white people are racist are ALL racists… Sure, I know good black people and I know black people who are complete and utter liars. They don’t give a sh!t about Trayvon…all they care about is perpetuating their “victim” status. If they cared they’d stop killing each other. America is sick and tired of paying for people (Democrat’s) actions of the past. (I’m native American and am having to pay for it too…where is the fairness in that!) Stop playing the victim and start become a responsible people. And stop the race baiting game. For God’s sake idiot, we have a black president and it wasn’t Black people that got him voted in. I wonder what it would have been like if White people started riots over the Simpson trial…ha GROW up and join the small group of decent black people and stop crying.

      • chocolatebunnie

        You sound silly! You’re the racist. Who started this mess? White folks racism lives within a lot of you guys and just are ashamed to admit it! Build a bridge and jump over it!

      • SuMB

        We’re racists? Really? It’s part of the culture of California if you ask me to riot! No one rioted in Sanford Florida. I’m mad about the verdict also but I have no plans to riot whatsoever. I’m not a rioting person, GO FIGURE…Not every black person in the US was in California last night rioting. To me, that makes no sense, it solves nothing and it’s just unproductive and wrong. And I’m no racist so slow your roll…everyone is an individual and it is indeed a naive and small mind that stereotypes an entire race like that! Get a clue!

        If Zimmerman were black he would have been found guilty. THAT’S WHY WERE UPSET!! A black woman in florida was given 20 years last year for firing a warning shot at her abusive husband…no one died, no one was hurt. Zimmerman kills a child and he is acquitted? Something is soooo wrong in Florida so stop with your self righteous stance!

            But don’t doubt even in the red states that someone will say, I just doesn’t want to deal with the headache and deny him even though it might be baseless. You are right about the mental illness, they’ll use that as a blanket excuse to deny him what he is entitled to.

            I’ve been saying to folks since shortly after Zimmerman was charged.

  • Robert

    There is two major differences between Rodney King riots and now. One is the cameras. You will be caught on camera if you are walking through a major metropolis. Two is the logistical support needed to herd up people and move them to detention centers. The government has the ability to round up people in large groups and move them. I think the government doe snot want to show their whole hand yet, because they want more rioters and looters across the country to test the operational readiness of their emergency systems.

  • High_Tech

        Miss Jones, clearly agitated, sputtered out “Well… what if your mom were a crack whore, and your dad were her pimp and drug dealer? What would THAT make you?” Mary thought for a moment, then tentatively said…

      The same with Detroit, except that it has only been about 30 years since that city was fully down the same road. In 20 more years, it’ll be worse than Oakland, if not sooner.

    – Sending Arms, Jets and Tanks to those same Egyptian enemies
    – Violating the Constitution by appointing cabinet members while Congress is still in session.
    – Implementing executive orders to allow him to arrest whoever he wants for no reason (again violating the Constitution).
    – Killing Americans overseas with drone strikes without a trial (another Constitutional violation)
    – Saying cops acted “stupidly” when they asked a Black man for his I.D….thereby implicating the cops as racist before he had any facts.
    – Most recently….saying those who commit sexual assault in the military should be “court-martialed, be dishonorably discharged and lose their rank” thereby tainting any trial these offenders could have because his comments can be considered testimony and can invalidate EVERY case.
    – Oh…and then injecting race into a non-racial situation, and having his DOJ funnel money and supporters to Florida to enflame the Trayvon Martin situation.

    And think….we still have 3 1/2 years more of this Clown.

    Bullies are bullies. I watched a strike go on for 3 1/2 years because the strikers likes doing the things they were doing. They thought it was fun. Oakland had the most Occupy violence too. If it was an excuse to loot and riot, Oakland would show up to protest Saturday only coming once a week. That’s a reflection on politicians breeding the policies that attract the biggest scum. That evil tea party needs to stop running that town…….what?…….sorry. I guess it’s not the Tea Party’s fault. Never mind.

    They know its all BS and its time everyone wakes up and gives them the big FU for clinging to racism all these years to scam people.

      Hmm… I wonder what it would look like if Americans, in general, still held grudges against King George and went around whining about what brought on the American Revolution. We could walk around bitterly, everyone of every race, and scream that the British of today owe us for all the taxation and other abuses of former times. It doesn’t make much sense, though, because those battles have been fought and we’ve won our independence.

      Slaves were freed–something people of all races fought to secure for them during the American Civil War. We celebrate this every June. Some of our ancestors fought on the side that made sure no one would ever be enslaved in America again. Some of our ancestors hadn’t reached America’s borders until long after slavery ended.

      No one alive today participated in any of this any more than any living Brit supported King George. We don’t go around hating people who wear red coats or speak with an English accent.

      It’s time to stop hating people just because of the color of their skin. Yes, I am calling out racists of all colors who assume things about another race. Just stop it already. It’s not pretty coming from anyone.

      Can’t we all just be AMERICAN?

        I’m sorry, but Black slaves did not actually win their independence any where in the world except for the island nation of Haiti, and then, only on half of the island.

        In every other country where they achieved freedom, it was Whites who gave it to them, and it was Whites who pressured all the other races to abolish slavery of Blacks. White America was especially effective at outlawing Black slavery in Asia in the late 1800s, for instance.

        Slavery still exists, of course, but only in the open in Black countries, where it has continued uninterrupted for thousands of years.

        • http://www.RuthAnnHogue.com RuthAnn Hogue

          I stand semantically corrected. American slaves did not rise up to secure their own freedom. I will say, however, that being granted their freedom was definitely a “win” for them and all of their descendents. If only people of today would focus on what was done then to prevent future wrongs rather than focusing on what went on before, we’d all be happier, in my humble opinion.

        • aclay777

          Yes, history of our country shows how divided the white race was, white against white, two sides in the civil war, more whites died for this cause than in any other war and it was to free the black man, which is what God and society teaches us. Cold Harbor seen 12,400 die in a day for these freedoms, I know, it’s in our family history. it’s simple human nature. It’s hard both races living in the country working on a tobacco farm shoulder to shoulder the only children to play and grow up with were Caucasian and Afro-Americans, those kids grew to adults and it’s impossible to try to teach them (racism) that their childhood “best friend” is a lesser being, finding in the civil war, brother against brother, northerners crossed the southern line for their belief and southerners crossed to the North for their beliefs. Still we try to pigeon hole color of skin into a lesser or greater being, which is just plain stupid.

    • Ernie

      You are correct. And notice that those businesses are mostly hard working immigrants such as Vietnamese, Chinese, etc. who actually work more than 16 hours per day to get to their American dream. Martin Luther King himself would have deplored such shameful actions to those using violence.

        more revisionism…”Martin Luther King himself would have deplored such shameful actions to those using violence.”

        utter nonsense! there was violence wherever he marched, and he knew fell well there would be. you need to read for historical accuracy and get your facts straight about certain people, black or otherwise — MLK was far from holy, yet still referred to as the Reverend. What a joke!

      @j95lee no I don’t remember any “white” riots following the OJ Simpson trial.

I think some of these people just get in a crowd, and they suddenly feel it’s ok to do things they would never do on their own. It shows a complete lack of character. I would move my business out of there fast if it was me. And I am so sick and tired of morons and hippy-wannabes calling the cops “pigs” and scrawling their mindless insults all over everything.

They have had every opportunity to succeed and it is a shame that so many of them just can’t get it done as they have to much hate about something that really didn’t effect them at all. Why is it everytime a black man get his due process, they have to riot and burn things, yet when a white man gets killed or beat up by a black and the black man gets off, the white man doesn’t riot and burn things. WTF Maybe they should look at what happens in Chicago everyday and especially on the weekends and try to solve those problems instead of rioting over a hispanic man shooting a black guy.

If they were so angered by a black getting shot, why not riot over the black baby shot, the black 5 yr. old gut shot, the black 7 yr. old who was shot 2 times IN THE HEAD, and too many other innocents (really innocent, unlike Trayvon who liked to fight)? This is about straight up destruction, and the mob mentality.

        Excellent point, and there are racists on both sides. But it’s pure folly for either side to make it about race when the real problems are cultural in nature.

        If someone presents himself as a thug, we will take him at face value (i.e., believe him). Thugs should be dealt with as harshly as need be.

        The hug-a-thug types don’t understand this, and refuse to acknowledge that decades of doing it their way has been an epic failure.

  • Snowbird1234

    So outrage of a verdict leads to destroying your own [communities] property. Hmmmm. Jury followed the facts of the law regardless of personal feelings. Agree with one small segment of a statement made on Fox and Freinds by Martins attorney “…who we are and what we are” – Martin Attorney. May disagree with him how he stated his disappointment in verdic, but Glad Lady Justice stayed blind when media couldnt. Feels good to finally “weed out” bad media and “bad bloggers.” Huge fan of Twitchy and Malkin.

  • http://www.RuthAnnHogue.com RuthAnn Hogue

    This is America, people, where we are presumed innocent until proven guilty
    based on evidence presented to a jury of our peers. Part of our social
    contract is to accept verdicts those juries make and to sometimes
    participate as members of those juries.

    When you second guess them and riot because things didn’t go your way,
    remember that the opposing side could just as easily do the same. Do you
    really want to live under mob rule rather than the rule of law? Think
    hard before you answer. Mobs you agree with today could turn on YOU
    tomorrow. Public opinion is flighty.

    You don’t like a guilty verdict? Ever heard of filing an appeal? You don’t like someone being acquitted based on current laws? Campaign to change them. There are reasonable ways to respond that do not include harming people who had nothing to do with what happened in Florida.

    By the way, who do you think paid for those police cars being defaced? Who will pay to have them cleaned? Uhm, you, dear residents of Oakland. Why are you wasting your own tax dollars by destroying things you paid for and will pay to fix? And why burn the very flag that protects your right to have a dissenting opinion?

    Wake up, Oakland. You’re disgracing America.

    • AnnieO

      Very well said!

    • Jrad

      I’d bet that most of the rioters don’t pay tax and are very good at playing the system for foodstamps, free housing and other benefits. Just as many hud tenants destroy the homes they live in for free, these government leeches destroy the society we tax payers provide them.

      ps. I wonder how a few hundred dead rioters would be reported by our racist politicians who started this mess?

      • http://www.RuthAnnHogue.com RuthAnn Hogue

        I’m referring to local taxes we all pay at the grocery store, etc. I guess if you are paying with Food Stamps, however, even sales tax is not coming out of your own pocket. I hadn’t considered that, Jrad.

        • Jrad

          Another thing to consider is that not every state has sales tax. I’m no fan of “social justice”, but I do believe we should be taxed according to our ability to pay so income tax is probably the best option, as long as it’s simple rate that varies slightly by income and no deductions/loopholes. Sales tax however taxes the widowed grandmother the same as a billionaire. We should abolish sales tax and the IRS and let everyone pay tax weekly, everyone pays the same, no tax at all on the first $200 earned and have the rate start to slowly rise at about $800. Business owners will still need to do complex tax returns to prove their income or perhaps pay an alternate gross tax on all incoming money. This would be complicated because some businesses work on very small margins so they would have to prove that (for example) a million dollars coming in is really only $10k profit, where another business may have 500k profit, but for employees it should be as simple as a flat percentage deducted from each check and if you’re sick and cannot work or you have to take off to care for a sick family member, you pay no tax, you only pay when you earn. When you retire you’re done paying tax. If seniors didn’t have to pay sales tax imagine how much easier it would be to make social security wages liveable. The ONLY sales tax I’d be in favor of is for Vices like tobacco, alcohol, or extreme lux items like cars over $100k or homes over $500k, but even then it shouldn’t be a huge tax, just a % or two at most and only on the excess. It would be strictly voluntary because no one needs a 100k car or a 500k house to live VERY comfortably. We should also tax the airwaves, radio, tv etc… they make billions selling ads and forcing us to watch them, but don’t the “people” own the airways??? and should they have to pay us to use them if they want to get rich doing it?

          I could go on, but I’m probably boring you lol

      The story of Jesus is trying to tell us how people think. When Pilate put Jesus and Barabbas before the crowd, the crowd chose Barabbas to be set free. The lesson? People will choose criminals over light bringers. Look at our last election and how the criminals set aside Ron Paul.

    THIS IS JUST BEING A BUNCH OF SORE LOSERS! I thought it was an “Open-and-Shut” Case against Zimmerman, secretly hoping for (At least) A Manslaughter conviction;But I’m a good enough person to Hold my tongue until after the Verdict. I (still) have numerous questions about the case in general,and think there should have been a mistrial.
    That being said, Now I can say this:I’m upset about the verdict, and am (Partially) living in fear for something Neither I nor my race, nor the Police (who were pressured into arresting Mr. Zimmerman for the purpose of filing charges) ARE NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR! This was the act of one Gonzo, lone Hispanic man, a wanna-be Cop, Who (kinda) got carried away with his duties as a Neighborhood Watch member.
    Atop that, Mr. Zimmerman lived in a neighborhood that had a problem with crime (e.g. Break-ins), and was trying to protect his community; and, according to some, Trayvon may not have been so Innocent in the first place, but on the night in question, he was doing Nothing wrong.

      The law basically declared that shooting a young black man is legal. Don’t act surprised when young black men no longer respect the law. Ever heard the phrase “by the consent of the governed”? These guys are revoking their consent.

      • unklbrad

        Not true. It’s clear that both parties foolishly escalated the situation. The guy with the gun will always win. Civil court awaits.

        • Truth

          Yeah, as “fair” as that is. Zimmerman will lose in civil court. Why Case Law doesn’t apply, I’ll never know. He was found not guilty in a criminal court of law but civil courts don’t have to accept that. Why?

      • Truth

        You are full of crap! The law basically declared that, when someone is bashing your head against the concrete sidewalk, you have the right (at least in FL) to defend yourself, by shooting if necessary.

        Many young black men already don’t respect the law. That’s why the jails are full of them. Not because of whatever racist excuse people like you give. Many of them had black juries, judges, and prosecutors.

    For heavens sake, DO NOT relate this to 99% of the Afro-American, they are one with common sense. The evidence was the evidence the jury spoke and Tryvone wasn’t that 13 year old in the photo, Trvone Chose his path and this horrible thing happened before he could, or he would, have turned his life around. Nevertheless, this destruction is so mindless and baseless. The few to insight passions of the many. Accept this justifiable verdict and move on, don’t let this be a platform for continuing injustice. (Another thing, a full white Caucasian best not defend himself or shoot for any reason a person of less that Caucasian nationality,) It’s obvious that our current government and NAACP will pursue and destroy them, not your average Afro-American, who I’m close friends of many. The NAACP and DOJ don’t speak for them, just the prejudice few.

    I know that when I am upset, the only thing that makes me feel better is to vandalize buildings, break glass, and threaten the police. I don’t know what it is about those behaviors, but clearly I’m not alone. Why, the folks in Oakland must feel great this morning. So cathartic.

  • Michael John Naretto

    It amazes me how people will destroy property and burn the American flags of businesses and personal property of people that weren’t even part of this. Yet, they want justice but, shouldn’t they be putting all that anger and rage towards the individuals responsible and demand action from them? Shouldn’t they focus and write letters to the leaders asking why? There is no good in all these riots. Are they not acting just like those who bombed the Trade Center, Oka., bombing, or any other number of terror attacks upon God’s green earth? We may never know the truth about what happened between Zimmerman and Martin. However, shouldn’t we focus on this never happening again instead of rioting in the streets? Especially in the streets of cities that had nothing to do with this or the verdict!

    well, does Al Sharpton know about this? He said, “we’re not stupid, we know how to behave.” Yep…just acting their color.

  • right_on

    It amazes me that these people do this to their own communities. Let’s try something different. How about cutting off federal funding to rebuild city infrastructure when the city’s residents cause the damage? Have insurance companies refuse to cover losses from riotous vandals. Those (if any) arrested who are currently receiving federal or state benefits, immediately lose said benefits. A parent, or parents who get federal/state assistance lose it if any of their children, under the age of 21, are convicted of vandalism, rioting, or assault during any protests. Maybe this would be a step in the direction of personal responsibility?

    • bonnieblue2A

      People who have made no investment in their communities (sweat of their own labor, time and/or money) have no reason to improve, protect or defend it from thugs intent upon property destruction.

      These rioters and anarchists don’t have a dime in “their communities” so what do they care if they destroy them? That government welfare check, SNAP card, Medicaid and free cable TV/phones will keep their standard of living the same regardless of where they live after they have destroyed “their communities”.

  • Guest MVP

    Isn’t Oakland the place where the White Cop blew the black kids brains out in the subway station after they had him handcuffed, face down, and he wasn’t resisting. Leave it to the conservative gun nuts to try to justify that murder. I’m convinced the right loves the thoughts of teenagers being killed.

    • Charles Hammond Jr

      Conservatives don’t trust cops… especially so after the Zimmerman case.
      They also fight for the right of the people to have guns… not cops.

      Lastly… the person who pulled the trigger on that guy was probably a union member… and he was probably protected by his union goon buddies.
      You’d get a lot more accountability from the police departments (and many other government agencies) if they weren’t allowed to form public sector unions. Even FDR believed that police unions (and generally speaking other unions in the public sector) should be forbidden.

      BTW: I’m Asian. I don’t trust cops period… it don’t matter if they’re black, white, asian, latino, whatever.

      I also will shoot anyone who tries to kill or rob me. Again… don’t matter if they’re black, white, asian, latino, whatever.

      • Guest MVP

          Especially so nowadays.

        • Jrad

          Your understanding of conservatism is fundamentally flawed. The core principle of conservatism is less government, the more extreme the conservative, the less government he wants.

          ps. We could do with a lot less government today

  • Spasmolytic

    First thought, you’ll hear very little about this from the left. And if they do mention it, they’ll somehow justify it.

    Second thought, its an unfortunate reality that Zimmerman will have to look over his shoulder for the rest of his life but I fear his family might also be in danger. His mother, wife, and brother should invest in bullet proof vests.

    • Charles Hammond Jr

      I have to concur with you. Zimmerman and his family (and maybe his friends and the jurors) needs to GTFO of Floriduh ASAP… or at least that damned county where Angela Corey is the prosecutor.

  • dan cooper

    Normally I don’t consider myself to be a racist, BUT when 90% of blacks

    special kind of stupid.

  • Richard Lopez

    This is what happens when mobs rule the streets.

  • Logan

    I live in San Francisco and seeing this reminds me of the Oscar Grant case when that verdict was reached. Now that was a different compared to this. But this riot crap needs to stop, its freaking ridiculous. Instead of rioting, why not get involved and start writing petitions and submit them to your government. Make you voice heard instead of being a idiot costing business tremendous money by destroying it. When Oscar Grant verdict was reached it was crazy downtown San Francisco. People were setting fires, smashing in windows, threw a cherry bomb next to my apartment building nearly blowing out my windows, and they robbed the Apple store. How you make your voice heard through that. I hope Jerry Brown make an announcement about this soon so shit won’t get out of hand like what did during Oscar Grant. What happen between Zimmerman and Martin, no one really has deep solid evidence of that moment when he shot Martin.

    This is one of the reason when I get in a conflict I walk away. If they want to call me all kind of names and look at me weird than so be. It’s better to have that than to be some tough guy and attempt to whoop some @ss and get shot. It’s too dangerous to fight like you Mike Tyson. It’s not worth it.

  • james
