Although No Riots in Sanford, FL after Zimmerman Verdict of ‘Not Guilty’ … About 125 People Riot in Oakland, CA Breaking Windows, Burning Flags & Defacing A Police Car With “Kill Pigs”
Nothing says honoring the memory of Trayvon Martin like vandalizing a police care and wring “Kill Pigs” on it … This is what happens when so-called Civil Rights leaders gin up emotions and holler “no justice, no peace” and a willing liberal media supports the agenda.
The authorities in Sanford, Florida had asked for the people to act responsibly in the wake of the George Zimmerman murder trail verdict. Although the individuals who were pro-Trayvon Martin were very disappointed and irate following the “NOT GUILTY” verdict in the George Zimmerman murder trial, there was really no rioting as the media had hyped and probably some what hoped for ratings. Many people protested the verdict outside the court house in Sanford and were in disbelief; however, they did it peacefully with their voices. That cannot be said as to what happened in Oakland, California. As reported by the AP, in Oakland, pro-Tayvon Martin protesters broke windows at the Oakland Tribune and started small fires in the streets and the Oakland marchers vandalized a police squad car and police formed a line to block the protesters’ path.
