    Trayvon Martin protest leads to ransacking Walgreens
    http://www.wtsp.com/news/topstories/article/247456/250/Trayvon-protesters-ransack-store

    I'm with you, rioting is a rediculous response to Trayvon's tragic death and all it does is harm the cause of gaining justice. After this incident a lot of people sympathetic to the black call for justice will turn away in disgust.

    well as time goes on this whole episode is taking on a scene similar to the Rodney King incident.

    Hopefully stooges like Al Sharpton play less of a role. He has no credibility from his history with the Tawana Brawley case.

    He brings trouble wherever he goes.

    I'm sure Doomsday finds this inexcusable too. I've read nothing in his posts to suggest he approves of this.

    Btw, for clarification, my little '++++' were not to imply that he did. I find the Walgreens' incident inexcusable.

    Agreed. Rioting or looting is counter to the principles of civil disobedience.

    People are making judgments without knowing the facts. I have a feeling that Trayvon Martin isn't exactly the sweet kid he's portrayed to be. My guess is that Zimmerman felt he was suspicious (that's what neighborhood watch people do), confronted and followed Trayvon (when he really should have called police IF Trayvon did something to make him suspicious), and eventually Trayvon fought back. The fault lies in both of them, but Zimmerman shouldn't have pulled the gun.
