There have been dozens of acts of violence and destruction of property during those riots and rallies.

Isn't it interesting that even though Zimmerman had many supporters, police were only preparing for riots and violence in the event of an acquittal.

Speaks volumes about the character of people on both sides of the issue.

The president should speak out right now against these marches and help put a stop to them. He is actually helping to instigate these rally"s and this action alone speak volumes as to the type of person he really is.

Grateful to live in America where people peacefully and legally form a group, and then march out in public for something they believe in.
Some of these posters must be forgetting that Conservative groups do the same thing.

@ Chris B

Character? We all know that conservatives resort to violence. How many abortion clinics have these knuckleheads blown up and how many doctors and nurses have been killed in this mindless violence. I doubt there is one Democrat in the KKK and we all know the proclivities of that group. When you speak of "character" you better do some research first.

Peacefully, River of Sun? You and I must be reading different news...there have been riots in California, and attacks on white folk around the country. Why that is, I don't know, Zimmerman is a hispanic. PG#1 Fan -- there have been few abortion clinics blown up, and was the work of a few extremists. Conservatives, as a whole do peacefully march, and actually clean up afterward.

Hi PG #1 Fan.

I lived in Alabama in the 70's. I hate to break your bubble but the KKK was mainly formed by people that were part of the Democrat party. The south used to be a strong Democrat region. Please check your facts....you can be Democrat and strongly conservative in your values.

To riverofsun and PG #1 Fan:

You are wrong. Conservative groups do NOT do the same things. They don't riot by the thousands, burning police cars, storming and stealing from stores and beating up strangers to promote their political and personal points of view.

These people doing these things are all liberal Obama supporters... almost without exception. And also, large groups of conservatives don't bomb clinics and kill abortion doctors. Those things are done by individual extremists, not national level organized conservative groups.

Also, you are purely guessing about kkk politics. You quote no statistics whatsoever. Perhaps it's you that should be doing more research before publicly spouting unbacked accusations and assertions without evidence.

Pg fan,

And yet police were prepping for violence and riots ONLY in case of acquittal

They expected no such violence by Zimmerman supporters if convicted.

And there would have been none.
