Oakland Hit By Riots After Zimmerman Verdict


Demonstrators smash windows, attack police cars, start fires

Paul Joseph Watson

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. “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.

    Surprise, surprise folks and who may I ask is shocked about rioting in Oakland. The natives in places lke Oakland, Chicago, Los Angeles, Detorit and New York City are so out of control, they don’t need a reason to riot, burn, steal and commit assaults. Fanned by the rhetoric of the biased media and “race baiters” like Jessee Jackson, Al Sharpton and the NAACP, rioters took to the streets, many being local hoodlums, not even understanding why? It is fun for them to run amok, burn other peoples property and have the Cops turn the other cheek because of race issues. When you look around for the racist attitudes in this tragedy, most of the faces will be black.

    Now look at who is perpetuating racism. It is created by the very people who say they abhor it. It is perpetuated by the Media and the Elite who want race war instead of peace and understanding. Divide and conquer is not a new concept.
