Students honor Trayvon’s memory by looting Walgreens


Police: Trayvon protesters ransack store

North Miami Beach police said surveillance video shows dozens of high school students demonstrating in the Trayvon Martin case Friday ransacking a Walgreens store.

The incident occurred during a walkout from North Miami Beach Senior High School in support of Martin, 17, who was fatally shot in Sanford. Protesters have been calling for the arrest of George Zimmerman, 28, who has not been charged because he claimed self-defense in the shooting, according to police.

Minutes after walking out of their school Friday, a large group of students walked through the streets of North Miami Beach. Along the way, they stopped at a Walgreens at 163rd Street and 15th Avenue at about 10:40 a.m.

Surveillance video shows dozens of teenagers running through the store. Police said about 80 to 100 students stormed in, ransacking the shelves, before the school’s vice principal ordered everyone outside.

Trayvon Martin was killed in Sanford, Florida – several hundred miles north of Miami. Walgreens had no involvement in the shooting.

The worst part is the looters discredited other protestors of the killing. Let’s hope this was an isolated incident and there aren’t any copy-cat incidents. Otherwise sooner or later someone will get hurt.

    And the media actually reported the entire protest as “mostly peaceful”. I shit you not. I guess if only 100 out of 400 protestors actively riot, that meets the bar?

  2. WMCB says:

    OT, but racists are stoooooooopid. Those dirty Phillipians are almost as bad as the nasty Ephesians and swanky Thessalonians, ya know.

    When this is all over, there are a lot of people who need to just shut up for a while. Not that they will.

    Rev up the troops with racist claims and make them think there is been horrible injustice, and make them think they could be murdered in cold blood next, all for cynical political gain. What would possibly go wrong.

    Can’t make out if these are Obots or Owies.

    I had my front tire and seat stolen from my bicycle this afternoon. I had gone to get a new social security card and was in the building for tops ten minutes. managed to get a picture of the two guys fleeing wheel in hand. Police were a joke. One even said that a picture of them with my tire didn’t prove anything. To boot he kept my cell phone and I had to walk 2 plus miles with a wheelless bike. Not sure exactly how it came into play but at one point the cop accused me of accusing random black youths. Huh? Can’t do anything about it as I own a bar and don’t want to antagonize the police. Officers didn’t even look in the direction I told them I saw them going. Thing is where I live petty crime has become an epidemic. Stores don’t bother to prosecute as it isn’t worth the time and everyone knows it. best you can do is tell people they can’t come in anymore and then you are treading on thin ice

    Obama owns this one. I hope Walgreens sends the bill to Obama.

    Today on The Good the Bad and the SCOTUS, they’re hearing about the separability issue. If the mandate goes poof, does the rest of it go too. Not too interesting unless what really happens today is more about the mandate snuck in under the guise of talking about separability.

  11. DandyTiger says:

    Here’s a horrible thought I had last night. I’m leaning towards the SCOTUS upholding this law. As I thought about it, I realized the political party machines want it, the insurance industry wants it (hell, they wrote it), and the business side of the medical industry wants it. And since with it, companies can actually opt out of medical coverage, I suspect they all want it too. And since in the end SCOTUS is more political than we’d like to think, I think they’ll do what TPTB want.

    I hesitate to go off topic but WOW!!!

    “The Supreme Court’s conservative justices said Wednesday they are prepared to strike down President Obama’s healthcare law entirely.

    Picking up where they left off Tuesday, the conservatives said they thought a decision striking down the law’s controversial individual mandate to purchase health insurance means the whole statute should fall with it.

    Meanwhile, the court’s liberal justices argued for restraint. Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg said the court should do a “salvage job,” not undertake a “wrecking operation.” But she looked to be out-voted.”

    Does Ginsburg really think that the Supremes should have a red pen and go through 2700 pages and decide what should stand? The law did not have a sever-ability clause so would she really want the Supremes to have that power on all future cases where there isn’t a sever-ability clause. WOW! How frightening and dangerous. The Dems played a game of chicken and may have just lost.,0,2058481.story

    Neither Dems or Repubs anticipated the fall 2008 financial meltdown that ultimately helped sweep Dems into office. Despite the dire consequences of the worst recession since the Great Depression the Dems were determined to proceed with their health care legislation agenda come hell or high unemployment.

    If the Supremes strike down the entire legislation, think of the wasted precious resources spent on this turd for the past three plus years. And additional resources will be spent at the Fed and State level to dismantle what is already in place. Was a massive health care legislation what the country really needed at the height of the Great Recession?

    Clearly the Dems planned to pass major health care legislation if they won the 2008 Presidential election and had veto proof majorities in both houses of congress. Quasi health care lobbyist former senate majority leader Tom Daschle had a key role in the planned legislation and was planning on being HHS Secretary if Obama won. After Daschle lost his election in 2006, his chief of staff, Pete Rouse, went with Obama as he came into the senate and has wielded much influence behind the scenes in the Obama administration.

    The Dems’ pursuit of their health care legislation agenda in 2009 when the country needed to focus on our financial and employment health reminds me of the Bush administration’s determination to take out Saddam in 2003 when they should have remained focused on Afghanistan and the Taliban.

    Both parties make me sick!

    Whitehouse gives out confidential tax information about the Koch brothers. Nice.

    Democrat Sen. Dick “I am a Vietnam war hero – oops I misspoke!” Blumenthal has just launched into a full-throated panicked diatribe against the Supreme Court and their legitimacy.

    Seriously, he is fucking unhinged-sounding. He’s saying that the court loses all credibility if it strikes down Obamacare, that “The court commands no army,it has no money,it depends 4 its power on its credibility & its reputation.” Says that they are presuming the power of Congress if they do this, etc etc.

    I think the Obots in Congress are scared shitless, and are trying to intimidate the justices.

    • DandyTiger says:

      It is serious. If this is struck down, everything they’ve done for the last four years is shit.

    • yttik says:

      Cripes! Honestly the exact opposite is true. I believe that the Supreme Court has no business trying to “salvage” Obamacare or to try and edit it into a proper law. THAT really is the job of congress, not the SC.

    after making this couple’s life pure hell, spike lee is not even man enough to apologize.

    • DandyTiger says:

      If he didn’t, it should be a new policy from twitter. That’s a direct threat of harm and the means to do that harm. Basically inciting to violence.

      • elliesmom2 says:

        Publishing someone’s address on Twitter without their permission is a violation of Twitter’s terms of service.

        • Lola-at-Large says:

          Ooooh, does that mean they are gonna ban Spike Lee? And we’ll get treated a new round of racism charges? Will Twitter get racially smeared? Enquiring minds want to know.

  18. HELENK says:

    Al Sharpton does not learn from his mistakes. He keeps inciting and does not care about the consequences that others pay.

    • DandyTiger says:

      Al’s such a nice guy.

    • WMCB says:

      Why should Al care? He’s making a very nice living, and lives in a secure home with bodyguards. Think his fat ass is gonna be out there stupidly rioting and getting his head caved in? Nu uh. That’s going to be some naive 15 year old black kid that got all fired up by him. No skin off his nose.
