Potential riots?

Everything that's going on, reminds me a bit of 1992 riots.

I'd like to hear other people's opinions on what they think will happen when/if George Zimmerman is found not guilty/acquitted. I have a bad feeling about this happening on a nationwide level and not just in the state of FL.


PS - Did the 1992 riots stay only in CA? I can't seem to find any other area rule of law ceased to exist and chaos erupted at the time for the same reason anywhere else in the country.

Sure hope I'm wrong, but I'd bet my right nut that there WILL BE VIOLENCE if Zimmerman is not convicted of something.

BTW, how would you feel if you were one of the jurors who voted for acquittal? Don't think for a minute that you and your family won't be threatened by the black community for letting Zimmerman free.

FL has a long history of pushing prosecution on those involved in cross-racial shootings when the "victim" is black. I recall at least two incidents in FL (officer Luis Alvarez and officer William Lozano cases) where massive riots broke out after a shooting where the prosecution did everything the could do to try and get a conviction in order to appease the riotors. The Zimmerman case will be no different.

Yeah, it's called pandering. Treating a certain group like petulant children.

Isn't the jury to remain anonymous?

I do sympathize/have respect for the jury being stuck in a rough position, regardless. I hope the jury does the right thing here, though.

What if the 'right thing' is convicting GZ?

That's like saying "what if the right thing is denying gravity exists".

If the state pulls out some concrete evidence proving GZ guilty beyond a reasonable doubt, yes... I hope the jury does the right thing.

At this point though, I don't see that happening, do you?....

Big difference, in 1992 it was portrayed by the media as a group of white cops against a black motorist, edited film on TV.

Today it's portrayed by the media as a lone gun-nut vigilante hunting down and killing a black child. Not the police.

Besides, addicts staring at free Obamaphones all day forget to show up and riot.

The media is against him . Every leftist with an agenda is against him . The best he can hope for is a conviction on a lesser charge . There will be small scale disturbances in select cities , and a TON of rhetoric from the likes of Jackson , Sharpton , etc.

What scares me the most is the attitude that Zimmerman needs to be found guilty just to appease the baser tribal instincts of a certain part of the population.

Sadly some of those with this attitude are in the Florida judicial system.

There's no way Zimmerman can get a fair trial.

If GZ looked caucasian and not hispanic there probably would be riots if he is aquitted. I truly believe the BP's came down here before they knew what GZ looked like. I could be wrong though.

I've seen a felon who was carrying ilegally and killed two other guys who attacked him on video not even charged. Of course they were all the same race so no riots.

I'm not sure as I'm not on the jury. I think' GZ is going down because he put himself in the situation where he had to shoot and kill an unarmed man.

Were you right when you voted for Obama?

Obviously, some people must be wrong about what is right.

I have a real problem when "what the black community will do" has any bearing vs the evidence presented in the case.

I don't know any other way to put it. There's only one group of people that goes berserk and riots when things don't go their way.

When society starts making decisions based on the "potential" unlawful actions of a few people, then those people are in charge of society.

Odd that you just don't say African Americans but rather dance around it.

You think, or is that how you feel what should happen to him?

Is putting yourself in a situation where he had to defend himself later on illegal? If so, please cite the statute for us. I'm talking law, not feelings here, because if we go by feelings I think they're both idiots..... But the constitution and law should apply to everyone, no exceptions.

See, you know just as well as he does who he's talking about. Even you, a champion of the white guilt movement knows some groups are more likely to cause trouble than others.

Also, I'd hate for this thread to be derailed into a race issue or who voted for who issue. I really am curious on what people think will happen IF GZ is found not guilty.

Riots? No riots? Zombie apocalypse? etc? What will you do to survive it? etc again...

I don't know what else you think a thread about blacks lashing out in anger at whites over a Hispanic guy shooting a black guy could be about if not a race issue. I really don't.
