I'm going to be sorry to see this end---I think this was the longest thread I've ever started.

Damn defense lawyers, couldn't have stretched this out a bit?! :x :lol:

I have no idea of the guilt or innocence of Zimmerman, but I am certain the prosecution did not meet the standard of "beyond reasonable doubt". If this goes guilty, the fix is in.

Maybe tomorrow. The Black Panthers were outside the courthouse this afternoon supposedly. The police were hoping for a weekday verdict, but if it comes tomorrow we could see a lot of rioting if he goes free. I doubt he will, but I hope he does.

Probably not a good weekend to take the kids to any 'urban' events.

I wouldn't worry. Media hype aside, there is NO "violent rioting" atmosphere down here. Whatever the verdict comes in as, I'm not expecting any real issues locally.

Well I hope not. I know several cities (including Denver) are preparing for the worst. There were several violent attacks shortly after the media kept pushing the non-existent racial angle to the story though. This was around the country, not in Florida.

My prayers are with you all, I hope the Race Wars are over soon before you guys gotta feed you kids with Hunger Games.

I hope we have some race riots. I'm bored and my tank isn't going to bath itself in blood...



... Or will it?

This we can agree on.

I also agree with Simian, there won't be any riots.

Of course not, the fix is in. He'll be found guilty of something, probably manslaughter, but possibly the second degree charge. The real riots will be on appeal, when it's overturned.

Still, if there ARE riots, maybe my thread can get longer. That's all that really matters... :wink:
