Oakland CA. Hit By Riots After Zimmerman Verdict

Oakland CA. Hit By Riots After Zimmerman Verdict

Demonstrators smash windows, attack police cars, start fires

Civil unrest is beginning to hit US streets following the acquittal of George Zimmerman, with demonstrators smashing windows, attacking police cars, overturning dumpsters and setting fires in downtown Oakland.

One police car was daubed with the words “Kill Pigz” as American flags were torched.

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.

I would classify this as a "symbolic" protest. The flag just got burned at the McDonald's on 14th St in Oakland http://twitpic.com/d2k3tb

"overplayed" is being kind.

They went all in and busted!
They'll never admit it of course, and will pile on again at the next opportunity.

Oakland Riots Every Weekend

I lived in San Jose, and it seemed every time the Raiders lost a game, there were riots in Oakland being broadcast on the news. And the one night I was there, I helped catch a purse snatcher.

Huh, only the disarmed states?

Oakland, San Francisco = California restrictive firearms laws.
Washington, DC = restrictive firearms laws.
New York City = bans practically all firearms.
Chicago = restrictive firearms laws.

I find that surprising.

I thought gun laws were supposed to reduce violence!

Now we know

Now we all know the one place in Merica where we should not move to.
In New Orleans, LA. people are ready to party at the drop of a hat, in Oakland, CA. people are ready to "riot" because things did not turn out like "they" wanted.
Give it a break people...Justice has spoken, go on with your lives.
Love you wife, your children, spend some quality time with your frineds, enjoy a hobby, try to better yourself, and for crying out loud...Get a better attitude!

Riot monkies

are their own worst enemy

just a reason to loot and steal

you won't see riots in Florida because everyone is armed to the teeth.

Riots in Compton? Hard to

Oakland? Really?

Why am I not surprised?

Funny story...

Did you know that crossing the bridge into San Fransicso there is a toll but crossing back over into Oakland, its free.

Not discounted for two-way traffic but, FREE.


No one goes there (unless they HAVE to).

because it is wasteful to collect in each direction when nearly all cars eventually make the round trip?

Oakland Airport Usefull

The Oakland Airport is useful as a West Coasts Transit Point. The fares and hotels near it are cheaper and the Bart will be connected soon directly to the Airport.

Southwest flies there which helps on airfares across the 48.

That area of CA seems to riot

every time the wind changes directions. I wonder if these riots are government sanctioned, employees.
