Police Are Monitoring Social Media, Setting Up Areas for Possible Protests

Police in south Florida are bracing for the verdict in the racially charged George Zimmerman murder trial, creating places for people to peacefully protest, monitoring social media and urging people to remain calm.

"It's a trying time for all of us. We're not sure what the verdict is going to bring but it's a great opportunity for evolution of the Sanford community," Sanford Police Chief Cecil Smith said at a news conference Friday as the jury began its deliberations.

Zimmerman shot and killed Trayvon Martin in Sanford on Feb. 26, 2012. Zimmerman, 29, maintains he shot Martin, 17, in self-defense, while the state argued that Zimmerman "profiled" Martin and concluded he was a criminal.

Jill, isn't it what's happening?

Where are the angry colored mobs? Or the angry white/hispanic in response?

I get the feeling the MSM is getting disappointed/impatient...

Maybe nobody in either "communities" the freaking-really-care about Zimmerman's fate after Martin's?

Awww.... Too bad, for the MSM !

Tsk tsk tsk tsk tsk.

Well, then:

"Same player, shoot again." (?)

Either that or, "same player, get a clue":


"Cyril" pronounced "see real". I code stuff.
