Posted on 07/09/2013 4:26:39 AM PDT by servo1969
On Monday, the Broward County Sheriffs Office released a video calling on the public not to riot in the wake of the George Zimmerman verdict, expected this week or next in Florida. The Sheriffs Office released a statement explaining that it was working closely with the Sanford Police Department and other local law enforcement agencies to coordinate a response plan in anticipation of the verdict.
The video, titled Raise Your Voice, Not Your Hands, focuses on attempting to channel reaction into non-violent response. It depicts two youngsters, one black teenage boy, one Hispanic teenage girl. Raise your voice! says the girl. And not your hands! says the boy. We need to stand together as one, no cuffs, no guns, says the girl. Lets give violence a rest, because we can easily end up arrested, says the boy. I know your patience will be tested, says the girl, and then both conclude, but law enforcement has your back!
Lets back up and choose not to act up, and deputies are with us, so no need to act up, says the boy. Let it roll off your shoulders, says the girl, its water off your back, dont lack composure, because in one instant it could be over. Both conclude: So lets make the choice to raise your voice and not your hands. Sheriff Scott Israel says, Im Sheriff Scott Israel, and law enforcement does have your back.

This is not about a cause or Trayvon or Zimmerman. It is about thugs who are looking for a reason to behave the way they want to. Of course they aren't rallying or demonstrating. That isn't what they find interesting/fun/profitable at the moment. After the verdict, it will be like the urban 4th of July. Although, I am sure they will be excused by the media and our President for blowing off a little steam.
I was living near LA during those riots. The riots didn’t start to calm down until the rioters realized that since they burned the post office down, they had no place to pick up their checks (it was the beginning of the month).
So it’s simple. If you riot, no EBT cards for anyone for 6 months.
That’s really the only way to communicate with the type of folks who would riot like this.
“Riot! I needs me a new TV.”
Simple way to quell or prevent rioting is to cut off public aid for anyone identified rioting.
Old Fifty-Seven-States-Stupid will be complicit, as will be the Lame Stream Media, in the event of rioting following the white Hispanic’s exoneration.
sounds utterly moronic. was this sherrif a democrat?
he must be pro-obama and anti-constitution.
Broward is highly urbanized and even its “suburban” communities, such as Sunrise and Lauderhill, have large black populations.
I agree there won’t be riots in Sanford, because it is a quiet suburbia. Broward county is five counties away from Seminole county, where the trial is being held.
Seminole county is 9.5% black; Broward about 20.5% black.
At 16%, Florida has the second largest number of blacks per capita among states. Its black majority county is Gadsden, with 57% black, in the north, part of the Tallahassee municipal area. However, just north of there in Georgia, 17 counties are black majority.
But I do think that riots in Florida are less likely than they are in other cities around the US. Places always looking for an excuse to riot.
Oh yeh that’ll work. Black teens believing law enforcement has their back. It appears Broward County was not listening to Rachel Jeantel when she said black people don’t call the police.
Broward county better just roll out the decades tested plan of surrounding the Hood til the fires burn out and the Walmart is looted.
They were very upset.
Sanford is 40 percent black and 20 percent hispanic.
According to the US census (2010):
Non-Hispanic White or Caucasian 45.0%
Hispanic or Latino (of any race) 20.2%
(The two combined as white or white Hispanic) 57.3%
Black or African-American 30.5%
That is still a very high concentration of nonwhites for “quiet suburbia.”
At the nearest walmart, I’m the only white person when I go there.
Miami-Dade is far worse, and actually did have a very large race riot in 1980.
Even at sunrise you are outnumbered???
Disseminate this widely.
One or two people shot will lead to peace.
How in heck is telling people to keep their cool racist? I’m aware it’s mainly addressed to the Demographic That Must Not Be Named, but it certainly does not disparage that demographic.
By the way, if there are any Zimmerman riots, I’m holding the media partially responsible, along with such idiots as Al “They’re Killing Our Children!” Sharpton.
I suspect that the media covers the stories up because it’s the reverse of their “white racism behind every corner” worldview.
Great “graffic” from you as usual (the Zimmerman one)!! Keep it coming, FRiend.
Maybe someday I’ll figure out how to use these little beasties (computers!!).
