If George Zimmerman Is Found Not Guilty, Can The American People Handle It?

Should we take the thousands of people that are threatening to riot if George Zimmerman is found not guilty seriously?  After all, people make idle threats online all the time.  Sometimes people say things on Twitter or on Facebook that they don’t actually mean and would never actually do in real life.  And of course not everyone that is threatening to commit violence if George Zimmerman gets off will actually go out into the streets and start smashing things.  But without a doubt, it is quite alarming to have thousands upon thousands of supporters of Trayvon Martin publicly declaring that they are going to violently lash out if the verdict does not go their way.  In fact, things are so tense that police in Sanford, Florida are actually going door-to-door right now in an attempt to cool things down.  They remember what happened more than 20 years ago when a jury acquitted LAPD cops in the Rodney King case.  Nobody should want to ever see a repeat of that.

But our justice system has got to be able to function without having to be concerned about threats of violence if the “wrong result” is reached.  George Zimmerman deserves a fair trial just like everyone else does.  If he is actually guilty of a crime, then let him be found guilty.  If he is not guilty of a crime, then let him be found not guilty.

This notion that he must be found guilty “for the good of society” is complete and utter nonsense.  If we start allowing public opinion and threats of violence to determine the outcome of court cases, our legal system will lose all remaining credibility.

And honestly, right now the case is not going very well for the prosecution at all.  It appears that there is a really good chance that George Zimmerman will be acquitted.

Hopefully the American people will accept whatever verdict is reached.  If he is found not guilty, it should not be interpreted as an insult to one particular race of people.  We are all Americans, and we need to start considering ourselves to be one people.

Unfortunately, racial tensions in this country are extremely high right now, and many are warning that if George Zimmerman is found not guilty that it will unleash a wave of rioting unlike anything that we have seen in decades.  The following is from a recent article by Paul Joseph Watson

“I fully expect organized race rioting to begin in every major city to dwarf the Rodney King and the Martin Luther King riots of past decades.” warned licensed private detective and former Chicago police officer Paul Huebl, advising people to “be prepared to evacuate or put up a fight to win. You will need firearms, fire suppression equipment along with lots of food and water.”

Columnist and former senior presidential advisor Pat Buchanan cautioned last month that, “The public mind has been so poisoned that an acquittal of George Zimmerman could ignite a reaction similar to that, 20 years ago, when the Simi Valley jury acquitted the LAPD cops in the Rodney King beating case.”

Of course most of us are hoping that nothing like that will happen.  Most of us are hoping that cooler heads will prevail.

But authorities are definitely concerned.  In fact, police are actually going door-to-door in Sanford, Florida in an attempt to keep everyone calm…

Cops are going door-to-door in an American city again, only this time at least they are knocking on doors instead of knocking them down.

The most recent example of a police-state presence is developing even now in Sanford, Fla., where neighborhood-watch participant George Zimmerman is on trial for murder for the death of teenager Trayvon Martin.

While the media has portrayed Zimmerman as white, he actually has a Hispanic heritage, and Martin was black.

Police say they fear the backlash from the community which could develop at the point the jury verdict is delivered. Los Angeles had days of rioting when the Rodney King verdict came down.

So Sanford Police Chief Cecile Smith confirmed officers are going door-to-door talking to people.

“Our worst fear is that we’d have people from outside the community coming in and stirring up … violence,” he said.

But if Zimmerman is found not guilty, Sanford will not be the only community that could potentially see rioting.

The truth is that we could potentially see violence nationwide, and the mainstream media is at least partially to blame.

They have sensationalized this case and have stoked racial tensions for months and months.  They have turned this case into a giant media spectacle, and so now this verdict is going to be one of the most anticipated in U.S. history.

If the verdict does not go the way that the media and the supporters of Trayvon Martin want it to go, what is going to happen?

I think that we can get some clues by reading what people are saying on Twitter.  The following are some examples I found that have relatively clean language.  Many of the other examples I found were even more violent.  The threats that some of the supporters of Trayvon Martin are making are absolutely chilling…

    If Zimmerman gets off, and the Hampsters riot, then the good folks of Florida get to exterminate more rodents.

  • only an idiot thinks zimmerman is honestly guilty,zimmerman head was struck on the ground i dont care if it was only one time and was attacked at punched,there is no doubt about it..so whoever thinks zimmerman is guilty is a prejudice punk that not only is prejudice but cant tell hes not even white..so if your attacked by a black guy you should do nothing ..NO YOU KILL HIM IN SELF DEFENSE..so any of people that think your going to riot i wouldnt do it by my house or we will see the next trial going on in right here with me being the defendent

  • Florida is NOT California. They start that shit here and you try to pull a truck driver out of his truck to smash in his skull, you’ll be surprised to find out that his truck is included in the “Stand Your Ground” law. That truck driver will probably have a very large pistol waiting for anyone attempting to pull him out.

    Also, any business is also included and of course, private homes. If people think they can use this an excuse for violence, there will be some very ugly scenes. There won’t be many assholes grabbing TVs and Reebok’s or skull smashing on the roadways. We’re all well armed here. Let’s remain peaceful.

  • Barn Cat

    If he’s found innocent we’ll have the worst race riots in our history.

    • theDOOOD

      Gosh I hope sooo. So should we find an innocent man guilty simply because the Black community will riot? That’s bullshit !!

    • Of course they’ll riot if Zimmerman gets justice (acquittal). They did after the Rodney King verdict, they’ll do it again. Be prepared to defend your family and your property from the vermin.

    • Stock in an extra case or two of ammo …

  • Evie

    Oh so people will riot over this but not about unemployment, housing or anything important. Kinda dumb.

    • RickE.

      Evie, you’re right! And it shows the level of intelligence, maturity, and priorities that these young blacks show.

  • mc

    FL does allow citizens to uphold their 2nd Amendment rights, unfortunately, this will spread well outside of FLA, places like Chicago, Newark, Camden, LA, even NYC will have issues. If the justice system bends in order to appease the maggots, then all is lost in the country. Keep your powder dry!!

  • RickE.

    I realize the cops are trying to defuse the situation by going door to door, but this could conceivably go bad, because it may skew the jury’s decision. Just like the media stirring it all up, so can the going door to door.
    The jury WILL hear of what’s going on one way or another. They always do.

  • akvamet30

    Let ’em riot, and thewe can let ’em rot as their bullet ridden corpses collect on the streets. F***ing Niggs.

  • theDOOOD

    Hmmmm, Threats of violence from the black community…SHOCKER!! Where were the threats when OJ got off?? What we are experience is an explosion of racism, Black on white racism, from the same Hypocrites who cried foul when it was White on Black racism. OK for them to do, not for anyone else.
    And as for the section of the article stating “If we start allowing public opinion and threats of violence to determine the outcome of court cases, our legal system will lose all remaining credibility.” I spent 15 years as a police officer and can say TOO LATE for that

  • theDOOOD

    Well Yes , they mostly do…Like if the weather is too warm, or too cold, too much sunshine, too much rain, they didn’t get dem food stamps on time, soemone says that should get jobs…all reasons to riot….I hope they do riot because the only ones they usually shoot are themselves and each other, Let’s thin the herd of morons a bit!!!

  • theDOOOD

    And here’s a valid question…WHy is it that Homeland security is Allllll over the palce when someone mentions the constitution, 2nd amendment, patriotism or anything else, yet these F#$%king morons can make threats ALLL over twitter and …Nothing but crickets chirping. ???

  • Lone Dissenter

    The level of intellect here is quite staggering! How many innocent Black men do you think are sitting in a prison somewhere at this very minute? I honestly see why TPTB view the vast majority of you as the “bewildered herd” and fodder for the elite. TRULY PATHETIC!!!!!

  • JasonC

    Americans bought 17 million new firearms since the last election, and bought the entire retail channel dry of every type of ammunition there is. Fear nothing, we are ready.

  • Andy

    Lets just wait and see,I think he will be found not guilty.Maybe folks won’t riot,just depends if some civil rights leaders like Al Sharpton or Jesse Jackson incites a riot or if they try to keep tempers from flaring.Hopefully people will have enough sense to be cool and let it go.But I do have a question for some,if he is found guilty will some riot?Be prepared and ready.Keep your powder dry.

  • Of course they’ll riot if Zimmerman gets justice (acquittal). They did after the Rodney King verdict, they’ll do it again. Be prepared to defend your family and your property from the vermin.

  • Dave
