CNN ^ | June 21, 2013 | David Mattingly

Posted on 06/24/2013 5:27:44 AM PDT by Beagle8U

With its all-female jury now in place, the trial that's become a hot button for racial tension in America is one step closer to a resolution.

Don't beat me up too bad if I screwed this up. This is the very first article post I've ever made at FR.

It is a good video story at the link, Sanford PD is worried.

There will be riots regardless of the verdict, and not just in Sanford.

This story is meant to intimidate the jurors.I hope that Zimmerman’s lawyers are paying close attention because this is a perfect reason for appeal.

I agree. Even in the video Sanford PD thinks there may be riots either way.

The black churches say they don't know if anyone in their church will accept a not guilty verdict.

If riots happen because of a lawfully rendered verdict, so be it. People should put the blame for them on the rioters and the people fomenting riots. Sue them, arrest them and most importantly use EVERY method at our Constitutional disposal to defend ourselves from them.

That simple.

I agree. I also have been wondering for a long time if the government has been buying up all those bullets because of this case.

There is a big difference between present-day Sanford and South Central LA of 21 years ago; Unlike California, Florida has had concealed carry for 19 years, and everybody in Sanford is going to be armed on the day of the verdict.

Any questions?

Because thugs SHOULD be able to beat down whitey if he disses them.

CNN is playing the similar tactic in a play at the jurors that Chuck U. Schumer is doing to reticent Republicans on the immigration bill. “Your failure to give us what we desire just might result in mobs burning your neighborhoods and houses, and raping your daughters. Better not let them down.”

Please do not worry about security.

The St. Trayvon Memorabilia Sales Co, LLC. has just contracted with Al Sharpton for an armed Black Panther Team to take time off from their election work to guard the sales booth.

Jesse Jackson has also negotiated a very good split with the 94 black churches in Sanford on sales. A damn shame the Catholics have not made significant inroads here. St. Trayvon Rosaries could sell like hotcakes!

No...no...no.There won't be any riots if he's convicted and gets at *least* ten years.Not by blacks at least.Are you suggest that Hispanics will riot if he's convicted? You're surely not suggest that *whites* will if he's convicted.That would be a silly thing to suggest.

OTOH there very probably *will* be riots...perhaps even nationwide...if he's acquitted.Add that obvious fact to the fact that these white jurors would be justified in fearing for their own safety if they acquit and you realize that Zimmerman doesn't have a prayer here.

I am so SICK AND TIRED of the whining race baiting RACISTS on the left

that I’d almost welcome the riots - and the reprisals by law abiding citizens.

Let’s see who shows up today at the courthouse. It would be nice to see Allen West sitting with the Zimmerman family and subsequently announce his campaign to put an end to frameups like this one with a run for Governor.

Last week someone said a deal was struck that the prosecution would remove all blacks from the jury if the defense would allow all white men to be removed.

The latter will happen.

We are in a different world than we were back then. I mean utterly different. Preppers were “nutcases” back then. It is now a growing wave in this country and a LOT of them are suburbanites. Fred’s articles on the subject become more relevant with every passing year:

Get out the shotguns and load them up. At the first sign of trouble - BEFORE THE LOOTING STARTS - use them, and use them often!

I don't need to watch it.IMO if Zimmerman gets 10 years or more there's no way that blacks will riot.If he *only* gets 10 years they might grumble but won't riot.If he's acquitted or only gets a year or two all bets are off...with blacks,that is.I don't know this nation's Hispanics well enough to know whether they'd riot if he's convicted.My sense is that they wouldn't but I certainly wouldn't bet on it.And whites rioting if he's convicted? Nope...far too many of them are too busy making a living.

You think a woman juror would be more, or less, affected by potential threats to her personal safety than a male juror would?
