There is a large minority population in Sanford that the Revs. Jesse and Al spun up. People are afraid of large demonstrations that might get out of control. and potential "revenge" attacks. I would not go downtown Sanford unarmed. According to my friend who owns the restaurant, there has been a bit of an uptick in robberies downtown the last few months. May be related, may not.

Not trying to be racist, regardless of how this sounds...
But we've seen the outcry among the black community in the area. If I were in the area, I would stay home for a couple of days if Zimmerman gets off the hook, because I'm white.

Remember when groups of black young people were ganging up on individual whites, beating them to a pulp, and yelling "revenge for Trayvon", back when this first happened? Funny how that didn't make mainstream news.

If Zimmerman is acquitted, it's likely going to have a similar effect.

Common sense.

Liberalism is a mental disorder and political correctness suicidal.

I guess I just don't know the area around Sanford. I do vividly remember the Rodney King riots and what happened to Reginald Denny. That could happen again, but only if somebody like Denny is clueless enough as to what is going on and drives into the fray. Trip has the right idea, stay away if you don't want to get caught up in the ugliness. This applies regardless of skin color. The LA blacks who got caught up in the riots, many of them were there to watch and got caught up in the mob mentality.

Just a little forum housekeeping this morning. We mods try to keep as open and friendly environment on here as possible. Particularly in the Bunker and other restricted areas, we're fairly liberal in what we will let slide on some posts.

However, there are some things that just will not be tolerated. Violence and disdain against women is one of those things. Unfortunately, those types of comments got one member permanently banned this morning. As we saw with another post earlier this week, this community is pretty good at policing itself. Let's do our best to keep it that way.

Out of curiosity, did anyone ask, "just what is going through your mind?"

I just kinda get the idea that it was more of an epic brain fart than anything.

Side note: I updated my phone the other day, which erased much of the off color language I'd taught it. I just had to reteach the word "fart" to my phone. I thought y'all would get a chuckle out of that.
