... how many people will die for 13yo Trayvon Martin not surviving, but dying at the hand of a George Zimmerman? and will it be nationwide riots?

i hope it can be stopped but this just reminds of LA riots like de ja vu, ie Rodney King La Riots Pt2: The Sequel.

but this is far, far worse.

in a way i see it as a long-awaited test by American gov itself, on what Americans has become, socially in the 'civil' sense.

perhaps, a subliminal 'divide & conquer'.... as well.

Thank you for posting this and making people aware of the massive influx of Hypocrites and spouts of "racism" that has recently bombarded ATS.

I dont think you can compare the 2 subjects...

Rodney king - Handcuffed and beaten by several police officers while completely restrained.
The LA riots were a rebellion against LAW and LAW ENFORCEMENT. It was caused by years of racist treatment of black people by the LAPD - the final catalyst being the Rodney king incident. The riot happened for the CORRECT reasons.

Trav case - There isnt a straight story as to what happened, the incident was to do with another member of the public.
Now, if you had 100% proof that this teen was killed by Zimmerman and the accused still walks away from the trial, That doesnt warrant a full scale riot, that warrants a man hunt.

significant difference between both of these cases, please dont blur the lines to make them seem one and the same.

Tell that to the 53 dead people .. the hundreds injured physically .. the many more injured psychologically ... Reginal Denny the innocent truck driver who was permanently severely injured .. and all those Korean American stores and store owners who were targeted by the L.A. Rioters simply because they were Korean-Americans.

Time Magazine - 15 years after Rodney King

had left 53 people dead and $1 billion in damage

Reginal Denny

On the first day of the rioting, Denny was attacked, pulled from his truck and brutally beaten, sustaining serious head injuries and other injuries. As a result of the injuries he suffered during the attacks, Denny had to undergo years of rehabilitative therapy, and his speech and ability to walk were permanently damaged.

Korean America Stores Suffer During the LA Riots

When the smoke cleared, Korean Americans were among those suffering the heaviest losses: 2,280 Korean American-owned stores had been looted, burned or damaged, amounting to about $400 million in losses.

I do not deny that other people were killed or injured because of the riots - but that's what riots do. It was a statement to law enforcement. The LAPD couldn't handle it and it showed them up to the entire nation/world. The coppers that committed the crime were let off for gods sake, if the same thing happened these days people would stay at home.
And also, i have no doubts that thugs used the riots for there own benefit, but can i ask you, if the riot never occurred, what would you say then? Just another travesty by the police that went unpunished?
You gotta fight fire with fire imo.

hmmm, but Zimmerman is also law enforcement and KILLED a black teen.

caucasians and hispanic persons seem to be targetted in the "payback" mob beatings and killings(?)


just imagine by the time the Zimmerman killing goes to COURT.... and a decision is made - there will ongoing social uproar against random Americans...

in the end, who knows how many random innocent Americans will be beat senseless and/or die for perceived "justice" for Trayvon nationwide.

the MSM will further perpetuate and feed the sensationalism and angry emotions. things are heating up fast - not cooling up. this could be explosive across the whole nation (as opposed to just one city ie LA) - this time around

Rodney King was 47; not 52.

Nothing is going to happen. All of you race war people do not live in reality.

There was a video, taken by George Holliday, that proved what happened to Rodney. A corrupt police force, used by the CIA to ensure their crack and opium business ran well, was finally caught demonstrating their abuse of power.

The Treyvon murder will always be a mystery, used by the psy-ops media to divide or nation while the rich continue to steal everything. At the end of the day, this was a rent a cop playing Rambo against a villain he had grown in his mind.

Two different subject entirely.
