    [​IMG] Reaction: Many came from their homes into the streets last night to protest the Zimmerman ruling. In LA young and old joined marches and vigils in remembrance of Trayvon Martin while in New York crowds gathered in Union Square, pictured, and Harlem




    [​IMG] Marches: New York, Los Angeles and San Francisco all broke into protest last night. In New York peaceful protest lined the streets of Harlem

    [​IMG] Angry: A protest march broke out in the Leimert Park area of Los Angeles following the George Zimmerman verdict


    The Oakland demonstration followed a raucous but largely peaceful one in San Francisco. Police say officers escorted demonstrators as they marched on the city's Mission District. The group was dispersed by 10 pm.

    The verdict also sparked protests in Los Angeles, where demonstrators gathered in Leimert Park, the city's historically black neighborhood.

    Police said that about 200 gathered for a peaceful vigil.

    Lt. Andy Neiman of the LAPD Media Relations Department said another group of 50 to 100 demonstrators started marching around midnight.

    'There was a period where crowds were running among vehicles, but police dissuaded them,' he said.

    Neiman said he knew of no arrests. Further protests are expected to take place across the country tonight with police officers on alert to watch for sudden bursts of violence.

    In Washington D.C., CBS reported the group of protesters grew from three people to about 400.
    They marched for an hour and a half, picking up people from bars and clubs along the way.

    People carried signs and chanted for racial equality.

    'Stop criminalizing black men,' one sign read.
    'I will not walk on these streets in fear,' one protester told the broadcaster. 'I’m not afraid'.

    Another rally is expected tonight at Meridian Hill Park and New York's Union Square while many are expected to re-converge outside the trial courthouse in Florida at 3pm today.

    The Miami Herald reported that many churches in the state were planning to remain open throughout the day to help people deal with news of the verdict.
    Two protest areas have been erected to allow protests in the city and police officers will be ordered to remain in uniform today to show their presence.

    Courthouses and other public buildings were the focus of many of the marches.

    More than 40 people gathered at Sacramento City Hall.
    The Sacramento Bee reported that protesters chanted: 'What do we want? Justice. When do you we want it? Now. For who? Trayvon.'

    Demonstrations were organized quickly in the hours after news of the verdict broke.
    The outcry first poured out over social media and from demonstrators in front of the Florida courthouse in the moments after the not guilty verdict came down.

    Demonstrators outside the court started chanting 'Justice for Trayvon,' according toUSA Today. Others shouted 'The system has failed,' in front of the courthouse where they were gathered en masse.

    Amongst the protesters at the courthouse were members of the New Black Panther Party who wore shirts reading, 'Freedom or Death.'

    The Sun Sentinel reported that the militants spoke of 'injustice' in the moments after the ruling.

    'No one, no one could have foreseen that he would walk away,' said James Evans Muhammad, the party chairperson told the newspaper.

    A crowd of college students were amongst the louder voices present, chanting their dissent well after the verdict was announced.

    Violent words were thrown around on social media and vitriolic posters threatened that Zimmerman was a 'dead man walking.'
    Several online commentators sent out George Zimmerman's address while others post threats using the hashtag 'If I Ever See Zimmerman'.
    However, most heeded the Martin family's immediate calls for calm and sadness was the pervasive feeling among the thousands reacting to the divisive verdict last night.



    Stevie Johnson, wide receiver for the Buffalo Bills compared the Zimmerman verdict to Michael Vicks dog fighting case.
    'Living in a world where you fight dogs; you could lose everything (Mike Vick).. If you kill a black man you're not guilty! #INjusticesystem,' Johnson wrote.
    Miami Heat's Dwyane Wade lamented the verdict Tweeting,' How do I explain this to my young boys????'

    Several African American leaders also spoke out.
    Reverend Al Sharpton was amongst those who came out strongly against the court's decision.
    'The acquittal of George Zimmerman is a slap in the face to the American people but it is only the first round in the pursuit of justice. We intend to ask the Department of Justice to move forward as they did in the Rodney King case and we will closely monitor the civil case against Mr. Zimmerman. I will convene an emergency call with preachers tonight to discuss next steps and I intend to head to Florida in the next few days,' Sharpton said, CNN reported.

    Leaders from the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People also made statements condemning the Florida court's verdict.
    NAACP President Benjamin Todd Jealous said: 'We are outraged and heartbroken over today's verdict. 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,'
    Local Florida NAACP President Adora Obi Nweze added: 'We lost a young man due to senseless violence, but justice did not prevail. Last year we pushed for the arrest of George Zimmerman and a thorough investigation and trial. Today, we are still called to act. No one should be allowed to use this law to commit a senseless crime again.'

    At a press conference after the trial Florida State Attorney Corey declined to comment on the verdict, but instead thanked the judge and jury for their participation.

    'We have done our best to ensure due process. .. to show that the American justice system can and good only be done in a court of law. I don't think it helps anyone to be out espousing opinions about our cases,' Corey told reporters.
    However other Florida state officials were more emotional about the court's verdict.
    Speaking vehemently Bernie De La Rionda, Assistant State Attorney simply said: 'I'm disappointed by this verdict but we accept it.'

    [​IMG] A demonstrator cries after hearing th not guilty verdict in the trial of George Zimmerman at the Seminole County Criminal Justice Center in Sanford, Florida
    Zimmerman was acquitted on all charges in the shooting of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin which occurred outside a Florida gated community back in February 2012.
    The jury of six women took over 16 hours to deliver the verdict which was unanimous.

    Zimmerman fatally shot Martin last year after the community watchman spotted the teen wearing an over sized black hoodie waking home.
    After calling in a report of a suspicious person, police arrived on scene to find that Zimmerman had shot Martin and killed him in what he alleges was self-defense.
    Zimmerman's family spoke out today to say that the justice system had spoken and should be respected.

    Robert Zimmerman, George's brother, told Brietbart.com: 'The hallmark of our judicial system is a trial by jury of your peers. People called for George’s arrest and called for him to have his day in court, and both of those things have come to pass. The hallmark of our society is the rule of law. It should go without saying that respecting the rule of law and the outcome, this verdict, is our duty.'

    [h=1]Riots Started In America After Zimmerman Verdict[/h] July 14, 2013 · by judgementdayentertainment · in News. ·
    [​IMG]
    Civil unrest is beginning to hit US streets following the acquittal of George Zimmerman, with demonstrators smashing windows, attacking policecars, overturning dumpsters and setting fires in downtown Oakland.
    One police car was daubed with the words “Kill Pigz” as American flags were torched. “Kill Zimmerman” was also scrawled on the Alameda County Court.
    Following a wave of threats to riot in major cities if Zimmerman was cleared of all charges, trouble flared up almost immediately after the verdict was announced late last night.
    Unrest appears to be confined to Oakland for the time being, with more peaceful protests taking place in San Francisco, Washington, DC, New York and Chicago.
    Twitter messages threatening to violently kill George Zimmerman continue to flood the social network.
    A hoax is also circulating concerning a video of riots in Vancouver from 2011 which was falsely labeled as having taken place in Miami.
    Hopefully some of the unrest seen in Oakland last night will remain limited and the wave of rioting threatened by many will not materialize

    Back in the old days of a crisis in this country, people went to work and helped the country get through, like in World War II. Now they put on their filthiest clothes and take to the streets like vagrants. We're finished

    Well...one thing that strikes me is that some of these protestors have pretty nice signs. Probably couldn't have had them made after the verdict came in. Soooooo...I guess they had a feeling that they'd be protesting. Either that or they just love to be prepared.

    Maybe explain to them they shouldn't start pummeling someone who wasn't breaking any laws. The only law broken that night was when Martin decided to throw fists at the wrong guy.

    Of course not, dummy. But neither did the prosecution and they didn't even come close to proving otherwise.
    Idiots are saying "the system has failed" but the system worked exactly the way it was supposed to. Innocent until PROVEN guilty. The prosecution proved nothing.

    Get a fucking clue.
