Being Black is not a crime, but breaking windows and attacking people on
I predicted this would happen if acquitted. Zimmerman supporters
would not have engaged in this behavior if he was convictedSpeaks
volumes about the character of the people on both sides.
I guess that some of these folks believed that Travon's justice was in a
retail establishment and just went in to get it.
Nothing show greater commitment to civil rights than looting stores.Dr. martin Luther King would be mortified by the actions of modern "civil
rights" demonstrators, and their sleazy "leaders."
I don't get that mentality. I agree, How is beating up other innocent
people and breaking windows and stopping the freeway and destroying stores going
to bring back Treyvon? How are people going to understand your words when your
actions speak louder and speak of stupidity? You are acting just like George
Zimmerman. Go to school, get an education, become a politician and make a change
in the system. This young man's parents are hurt by this verdict and I feel
for them but they don't want violence, they have said so. Did people riot
and break into store when O.J. Simpson was found not guilty of killing his wife?
No. People are hurt I understand that but this doesn't make anything better
nor does it bring this young man back. The world is watching and we look stupid!
This kind of behavior does little to support the notion of a young teen just
getting a cold drink and a snack on his way home and then being brutally
attacked by a bully. It furthers the notion of a group of individuals bent on
violence against any and all who are not "of color."
This is not good people protesting, these are thugs taking advantage of the
I understand and accept protest rallies, if they remain protest rallies. When
some (all?) in the rally commit crimes, they are as guilty as they believe
George Zimmerman to be. What they are protesting about will not stop, will not
end, until they do. They are not improving the plight they imagine themselves to
The irrational behavior of the protesters speaks volumes about the justice of

ChristineNot sure we get the irony. Please explain. Seems to me

appeared just a poor attempt to use the word irony.
Sounds like a group of unprincipled, angry people who are confident life is
unfair looking for an excuse to commit crimes. I'm also guessing that
there are many in the crowd that don't often need an excuse.
Lets look at the ramifications of what they are doing.These people
are complaining that non-blacks think that the black community is full of thugs
and criminals. So, when a non-black pleads self defense to killing a black kid
and is found "Not Guilty", those blacks that don't like the image
that others have of them go around rioting and comitting crimes.I
wish they would take a step back and look at how counterproductive it is to say
that your community isn't full of criminals and thugs, at the same time
your community is going around rioting, looting, and beating innocent people.
Is this what was meant by "keeping the momentum going" in an earlier

These protesters are doing to innocent people what Trayvon did to George...just
