17 Peaceful Protesters Arrested After Mostly Peaceful Trayvon Temper Tantrum

Posted by on Jul 18, 2013 at 6:52 am

As with the mostly violent Occupy protests the media coverage of the post-verdict anti-Zimmerman protests are textbook cases of bias sympathetic toward the mobs. Pretty much every story insists everything is “mostly peaceful” or “largely peaceful” while casually dismissing the violent tendencies, criminal behavior and multiple arrests. Contrast these stories with the fictional accounts of “rowdy” Tea Party gatherings a few years ago. Anyway, last night in Victorville, CA, a bunch of thugs used the Zimmerman verdict as a pretense to go get themselves some free stuff.

See if you can spot the operative word here.

Demonstrators held a peaceful rally in Beverly Hills against the George Zimmerman trial verdict, but 17 people were arrested during a rally that turned rowdy in Victorville, authorities said Wednesday night.

Isn’t the 17 arrests more noteworthy here? Why must everything be prefaced with how “peaceful” things were?

Some carried signs saying “We Are All Trayvon” and “Sin Justicia No Hay Paz,” or Without Justice There is No Peace. The marchers snarled rush-hour traffic in the area but were peaceful, the Beverly Hills Police Department said.

Preventing people from their commute is peaceful? Really? More like disturbing the peace, at minimum.

In Victorville, eight of the 17 people arrested Wednesday night were juveniles, the San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department said. Most of the arrests were made on charges of unlawful assembly.

A department spokeswoman said most of the 80 people who took part in the rally were peaceful.

How do 17 punks getting arrested translate into “peaceful” behavior?

But 10 to 15 juveniles went into a store at a Chevron gas station near Bear Valley Road and Balsam Avenue and reportedly opened items and left without paying, authorities said.

A large group of people gathered at the Mall of Victor Valley parking lot and tried to force their way into the mall. They were stopped by security guards who locked the doors.

Elsewhere, things were — yep, you guessed it — peaceful!

Another peaceful rally and march was held Wednesday evening in Pasadena.

    Well, we did warn that riots were coming. The fact that those are being covered up from NYC to Chicago to Oakland is nothing new, just like the hundreds of daily black-on-black crime deaths that occur in America’s cities that never make the Liberal News.

    Tens of thousands of African-Americans killed by other African-Americans every year. Throw in abortions, it’s hundreds of thousands. It’s genocide against the black race. Similar numbers are true for Hispanics.

    But because it’s enabled by liberal fascists like our first black president, nobody seems to notice. If black and Hispanic voters knew the truth, they’d be voting 95% Republican and there wouldn’t be a Democrat left in office nationally.

    Want to get rid of liberalism permanently? Work to educate minorities politically.

    California Penal Code ยง 407 – Unlawful assembly; definition

    Whenever two or more persons assemble together to do an unlawful act, or do a lawful act in a violent, boisterous, or tumultuous manner, such assembly is an unlawful assembly.

    So almost a quarter of the protesters were arrested under this definition. Somehow I think peaceful does not mean quite the same thing in California.

    Protect the meme. Protect the movement. Protect the regime. Everything else is insignificant. This kind of thing is right out of Pravda or Volkischer Beobachter.

    @#1: Your basic premise is correct, Lightwave, but your numbers are skewed. The US has something like 16-17 thousand homicides per year and victims identified as “black” are roughly 50% of those. So the tragic number is around 8-9 thousand per year, not tens of thousands.
    Considering that the homicides usually involve offenders and victims who are young men between 16 and 30, it actually means that something like a demographic of 5% of the population is committing something close to 45% of homicides — far out of proportion. It’s only fair to note that the age-gender demographic applies across ethnic groups, i.e. a small portion of whites or Hispanics make up offenders and victims in most homicides in their ethnic groups as well.
    Most crime is ethnic-on-same-ethnic. When crime crosses ethnic lines, it is most commonly reported as black-on-white. White-on-minority crime occurs, of course, but it’s the least common ethnic event.

    I want justice for Trayvon and a new widescreen TV! Is there a protest near a Best Buy?

    IowaHawk pointed out that there are 1000 black males aged 13-19 killed by gunshots every year, these “protestors” and the online commenters who support them know the name of exactly ONE of them – because they’ve been trained to bark like a seal at the circus.

    I notice that the community that seems to be having the quietest expression of concern or disagreement is — Sanford, where the incident and trial occurred. The people closest to the event are not burning, beating or looting. Some are clearly disturbed by the verdict but their response is appropriate.
