Law Enforcement Agencies In Florida Prepare For Possible Violence After Zimmerman Verdict

July 9, 2013 by  

In anticipation of a forthcoming verdict in the George Zimmerman trial, officials with the Broward County Sherriff’s Department and the Sanford Police Department in Florida are working to avert possible violence stemming from racially-charged tension.

The Broward Sheriff’s Office issued a press release and an accompanying public service announcement via video in a bid to encourage people to express any discontent with the Zimmerman verdict peacefully.


From the release: “Freedom of expression is a constitutional right. While raising your voice is encouraged, using your hands is not. BSO has created a public service announcement with the help of kids from the Jason Taylor Foundation, H.A.N.D.Y. (Helping Abused, Neglected, Disadvantaged Youth) and basketball star James Jones of the championship Miami Heat team urging young people not to let their emotions get the best of them.”

A verdict in the Zimmerman trial is expected as soon as next week.

“We don’t have information about a specific event that might take place at the conclusion of the trial, but we encourage everyone to keep any protests peaceful,” Sheriff Scott Israel said.

Members of the agency’s Strategic Investigation Division have been maintaining open lines of communication with community leaders, civic activists, members of the clergy, as well as local, state and Federal agencies in an effort to stay one step ahead of potential violence.

Over the past several weeks, Twitter and other social networks have exploded with threats of violence throughout the Nation if Zimmerman is not found guilty.

    If the evidence shows Zimmerman guilty beyond a reasonable doubt, he should be convicted, if not he should be acquitted. If found guilty because the jury is in fear for themselves or their families then we have verdicts based on mob rule. If that happens we have lost our system of law and order and our country is finished.

    Zimmerman has already been found guilty in the court of public opinion. Because of the media and special interest politicians giving opinions before the investigation has even started, can Zimmerman even get a fair trial?

    When the Army Doctor killed those solders at Fort Hood, President Obama said lets don’t rush to judgement, even with all of the eye witness. Doesn’t Zimmerman deserve the same? I think he does.

    You know I really understand why white men hate black men. The pride of a man is a woman, who know your great great grandma and her descendants would have such a enormous appetite for black -@$!. White power!!!!… What an oxymoron. The weakest color in the box. Save our race. Hilarious, deep down you know your woman’s loyalty to you is about as long ass your @$&!. Again hilarious. So many of you guys want to be black. your women are botoxing themselves to death, walking around looking like science projects. Hilarious. In a society that ess designed by white for white, yet white has the highest suicide rate. say what you want, the black race does not house Adam lanza, Jeffrey Dahmer, Tim mcveigh, etc. Ewwww. such a tainted blood line. Devils span. Do keep making your assault rifles, your coward kus are going to continue to kill you, their college mates and innocent babies…Losers!#
