Hmmm...precautionary steps are being take if George Zimmerman is ACQUITTED, but not if found guilty; that speaks volumes.

pretty wise move considering the lengths the presidential administration has gone to encourage people to think of this trial as a racial incident instead of a tragedy.

look at the history of Sanford Florida and their police department for your answer. Why did it take public pressure for an investigation into the death of Trevon Martin to even take place?

The responsibility for any violence that follows the not guilty verdict falls squarely on the mainstream media, race-baiting celebrities and "civil rights" advocates and uninformed, meddling politicians, including our own President.

"Why did it take public pressure for an investigation into the death of Trevon Martin to even take place?"... After following this trial very closely the past few weeks its painfully obvious. The State simply HAD NO CASE. Now they have spent this entire trial making utter fools of themselves.

Where do I begin? NBC news editing audio-tape to make GZ sound like a racist. Shortly after the incident, Jesse Jackson, lying to his minions that Trayvon Martin was shot in the back. U.S. Rep Frederica Wilson "Trayvon was hunted down and shot like a dog in the street!". Spike Lee putting making GZ's home address available to the public (although he provided an incorrect address). US Rep Hank Johnson publicly stated "Trayvon Martin was executed for WWB, walking while black. U>S Rep Bobby Rush wearing a hoodie on the House floor. Even our president foolishly interjecting stating "If I had a son, hw would look like Trayvon."..... These peopler are the architects of the violecne that may very well arise in the wake of the verdict.
