George Zimmerman found Not Guilty - Let The Riots Begin!


That's right, let the riots begin!

Justice has prevailed and now let's see if those black militant leaders in the black community follow through with their threats to attack "Whitey" if they didn't get things their way.

Let's see if their lynch mob mentality rears its head and attacks the rest of America.

Like it or not, George Zimmerman has been acquitted of all charges in the February 2012 shooting death of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin in Sanford, Florida, after being attacked by Martin.

Attacked with intent to kill! Yes, that is what took place!

When someone is trying to smash your head into the cement pavement, they are trying to kill you! And yes, that is what Martin did.

Fearing for his life, Zimmerman used deadly force to stay alive!

There are many in the black community who did not care if Zimmerman was fighting for his life. They didn't care if Zimmerman was dead or not.

Martin was killed in the process of trying to kill Zimmerman, and many militant leaders in the black community wanted revenge on Zimmerman.

And yes, they threatened riots in the streets and attacks on "Whitey" if Zimmerman was found  not guilty.

Well, now that's the case, so let the riots begin!

Why do I say, let them begin? Because we as a nation cannot bow down to any group who threatens the rest.

We cannot allow any group or minority to use the threat of violence to intimidate our justice system into accepting their demands - or else!     

The jury of six women informed Judge Debra Nelson shortly before 10 p.m. local time Saturday that they had reached a verdict after deliberating for approximately 15 hours over two days.

Zimmerman, 29, blinked and barely smiled when the verdict was announced. After hearing the verdict, Judge Nelson told Zimmerman he was free to go.

"We're ecstatic with the results," defense attorney Mark O'Mara said after the verdict. "George Zimmerman was never guilty of anything except protecting himself in self-defense."

Another member of his defense team, Don West, said: "I'm glad this jury kept this tragedy from becoming a travesty."

Prosecutors called Zimmerman a liar and portrayed him was a "wannabe cop" vigilante who had grown frustrated by break-ins in his neighborhood committed primarily by young black men. Zimmerman assumed Martin was up to no good and took the law into his own hands, prosecutors said.

State Attorney Angela Corey said after the verdict that she believed second-degree murder was the appropriate charge because Zimmerman's mindset "fit the bill of second-degree murder."

A court public information officer said that members of the jury had no desire to speak to the media Saturday night. Identities of jury members are currently protected by a court anonymity order.

No surprise at all!

Supporters of Martin's family who had gathered outside the courthouse yelled out "No! No!" when the verdict was announced.

"Today, justice failed Trayvon Martin and his family," said Roslyn M. Brock, Chairman of the NAACP in a statement.

"We call immediately for the Justice Department to conduct an investigation into the civil rights violations committed against Trayvon Martin. This case has re-energized the movement to end racial profiling in the United States."

"We are outraged and heartbroken over today’s verdict," said Benjamin Todd Jealous, President and CEO of the NAACP, in another statement.

"We stand with Trayvon’s family and we are called to act. We will pursue civil rights charges with the Department of Justice, we will continue to fight for the removal of Stand Your Ground laws in every state, and we will not rest until racial profiling in all its forms is outlawed."

Around an hour after the verdict, Zimmerman's father tweeted: "Our whole family is relieved. Today... I'm proud to be an American. God Bless America! Thank you for your prayers!"

The verdict came a year and a half after black leaders angrily demanded Zimmerman be prosecuted.

And yes, the New Black Panther Party even put a Bounty on George Zimmerman's head at one point.

That anger appeared to return Saturday night outside the courthouse, at least for some who had been following the case.

Several Zimmerman supporters also were outside the courthouse, including a brother and sister quietly rejoicing that Zimmerman was acquitted.

Both thought the jury made the right decision in finding Zimmerman not guilty -- they rightfully felt that Zimmerman killed Martin in self-defense.

Authorities in Martin's hometown of Miami said the streets were quiet, with no indication of problems. The neighborhood where Martin's father lives in Miami Gardens was equally quiet.

O'Mara, Zimmerman's attorney, said his client is aware he has to be cautious and protective of his safety.

"There still is a fringe element that wants revenge," O'Mara said. "They won't listen to a verdict of not guilty."

Zimmerman was initially charged with second-degree murder in the death of Martin, but jurors could have also convicted Zimmerman on the lesser charge of manslaughter.

The jury had asked for a clarification on the manslaughter charge earlier in the evening.

The question read simply: "May we please have clarification for the instruction on manslaughter?"

As jurors awaited an answer, Nelson talked to lawyers at the bench and then said court would recess for a half hour. When attorneys returned, prosecutor Richard Mantei said that after conducting research, he would suggest asking the jurors to elaborate. Defense attorney Mark O'Mara agreed.

"Let's get clarification on their confusion," O'Mara said.

The judge then sent a note back to the jury that read: "The court can't engage in general discussion but may be able to address a specific question regarding clarification of the instructions regarding manslaughter. If you have a specific question, please submit it."

The jury also recessed for an hour for dinner, during which they were allowed to continue deliberating. They did not immediately respond to the judge's note.

If convicted, the former neighborhood watch volunteer would have faced a maximum sentence of life in prison if convicted of second-degree murder or 30 years in prison if convicted of manslaughter.

During the day about two dozen people gathered outside the courthouse awaiting a verdict, with supporters of the Martin family outnumbering those there for Zimmerman.

One man held a sign that read, "We love you George." A woman lay in the grass in a hoodie, her arms spread, in a re-creation of Martin's death.

During closing arguments, Zimmerman's attorney attempted to portray him as a neighborhood activist who shot Martin in self-defense and prosecutors attempted to paint him as a wannabe cop whose misguided suspicion resulted in the teen’s death.

As the jury began their discussions, police and civic leaders in this Orlando suburb went on national television to plead for calm in Sanford and across the country, no matter what the verdict.

"There is no party in this case who wants to see any violence," Seminole County Sheriff Don Eslinger said. "We have an expectation upon this announcement that our community will continue to act peacefully."

There were big protests in Sanford and other cities across the country last year when authorities waited 44 days before arresting Zimmerman.

Zimmerman shot Martin after being attacked and was in fear of losing his life. The court agrees that Zimmerman was justified in doing what he did.

So yes, the threats and the intimidation has not worked.

All of those black leaders who said that they were going to attack "Whitey" where he lives gave the white community notice that their intent was to do harm up them and their families.

So now, now that justice has prevailed in spite of their blustering and their threats, let the riots begin!

I read a number of statements talking about how "Whitey" is in for trouble if Zimmerman would be found not guilty. Many saying they want to "Kill Whitey" and burn their houses down.
Well, let them go over to "Whitey" and find out if "Whitey" is just going to dial 911 and cowardly crawl  under his or her bed while their homes are being burned down around them?
Yes, let them find out if that's the case?
Ever since last year after George Zimmerman defended himself from a bigger stronger younger man who was trying to kill him, if white Americans didn't know it before than, white Americans learned that there are thousands if not millions of black Americans who hate him and wants to spill his blood.

And yes, "Whitey" should know that the police can't protect his or her families and friends.

I recommend all White and Hispanic Americans be armed and ready to use deadly force if attacked by Blacks!

While black hatred for Hispanic Americans is evident as well, "Whitey" is the target of black rage.

And yes, since that is the case, Hispanic and White Americans should be ready to defend themselves.

If "Whitey" is smart and has listened to the reports of probable riots and assaults, then "Whitey" should know full well that his family should defend itself and not sit passively by while being attacked by militant blacks who will use this verdict as an excuse to go on a killing spree.

So will blacks riot and attack "Whitey" knowing that "Whitey" will shoot back when fired upon to protect his family?

Will black militant leaders call for calm knowing that the blood that they have called for might be spilled on both sides - and not just that of a white or Hispanic American?

But I ask you, do those black leaders who have threatened violence even care if black-Americans get killed if they tried to attack White and Hispanic Americans who will fight back?

Looking at the rate of black on black crime, I don't think so!
