As the verdict drew near, police and city leaders in Los Angeles and other parts of California said they were taking precautions against the possibility of mass protests or unrest.
'There is no party in this case who wants to see any violence,' Los Angeles County Sheriff said immediately after jurors began deliberating. 'We have an expectation upon this announcement that our community will continue to act peacefully.'
Crowds outside the courthouse were outspoken about their disappointment at the verdict, yelling 'The system has failed us', and hundreds took to Twitter to voice their discontentment with the justice system and jury.
Moments after the verdict was read out, people reacting on Twitter had described him as 'a dead man walking'.
Simpson's defense attorneys said the verdict had not sunk in for him yet...Oh, wait. I might have got some of that wrong...
Benjamin Crump, the attorney for the Martin family, acknowledged the disappointment of Trayvon's supporters, as he ranked the teenager alongside civil rights heroes Medgar Evers and Emmett Till in the history of the fight for equal justice.This kind of hyperbole makes me want to vomit over the keyboard. Evers walked twelve miles to school to earn his high-school diploma and fought for his country in WWII. Martin was a street rat with a record; he wasn't fit to shine Evers' shoes.
And but for the meddling of the worst President the US has had, he wouldn't even be a cause celebre.
Just all part of only 'whitey' can be racist and therefore is guilty regardless of the circumstances mindset of the politicians and media.
Truly the 'race grievance' industry has a lot to answer for.
True enough. Although the defendant's family not above playing game too : interesting quote from the Mail's report:
"George Zimmerman's fahter (sic), Robert Zimmerman, writes a letter to the Orlando Sentinel in which he explains that his son is Hispanic and is being erroneously portrayed as a racist"
Those 'friends and supporters' of the deceased do sound rather inclined to violence...
As someone else wrote:
A hispanic man shot a black man but was acquitted by six women. But it's all the white man's fault.
The name Jordan Begley would be far more well known if he had not been white..
Amazing how easy the 'community' can be manipulated by their collective victim hood by spivs like JAckson, Sharpton, Obama and all the pastors.......still, hot evening, 52" plasma is broken (or just fancy a new one), want some new Nikes....hmmmm....let's go looting and blame de racists.

Low information voters..?
XXafter the jury of six women took more than 16 hours and 20 minutes over two days to reach their conclusion.XX
Any one spot the usual Mail cock up?
A jury is "TWELVE men, good and true."
(Although I have heard a rumour they now allow women on to the jury. WHAT is this bloody world COMING to!!!)
