    If Black People In LA Riot, Can The Victims File A Class-action Suit Against Sharpton? Sharpton Sows Seeds of Next L.A. Riot

    Sunday, April 29, 2012

    As we remember the last riot in Los Angeles, the seeds of the next one are being sown.

    Al Sharpton was in Los Angeles on Thursday, attending a church rally marking the two-month anniversary of Trayvon Martin’s death. Why Los Angeles should be chosen as the venue for such an event may at first seem a mystery, but whatever one may think of him, Sharpton can be counted among the true masters at manipulating the media. And here in Los Angeles this week, much of the media has been consumed with observing the 20th anniversary of what is often referred to as the Rodney King riots. The not-so-subtle message Sharpton was here to convey is this: Listen to me, do as I say, or face the consequences.

    Recall that on April 29, 1992, four Los Angeles Police Department officers were acquitted in the beating of Rodney King, who had led police on a high-speed pursuit through L.A.’s San Fernando Valley. When he finally pulled over, unlike his two passengers King refused to submit to arrest and was struck with batons, kicked, and shocked with a Taser, all of which was captured on that famous videotape by a man who lived nearby. The tape (edited portions of it, actually) was played on television in what seemed to be a continuous loop for months, and then was played again ad nauseam throughout the officers’ trial. It was that tape, and the careful but deceptive manner in which it was edited and shown, that led to the near-universal expectation that the accused officers would be convicted. When they weren’t, much of Los Angeles was put to the torch in days of rioting and looting.

    By yoking himself to the memory of the Los Angeles riots, and to the coming trial of George Zimmerman in the shooting death of Trayvon Martin, Sharpton is implicitly threatening violence even as he explicitly denounces it. “I’ve fought for justice for Trayvon,”Sharpton wrote at the Huffington Post, “because I believe in America and I don’t believe we should burn it down. Let’s prove that we are in fact the United States of America, and let’s not miss another opportunity to show just how great we can be.”

    And just how great can we be, Mr. Sharpton, if “justice for Trayvon” results in an acquittal of George Zimmerman?

    Sharpton surely knows this is a real possibility. As pointed out by Harvard law professor Alan Dershowitz, among others, the case against Zimmerman is feeble. But this is of little import to Sharpton, and indeed may even be to his advantage.

      The Obama campaign searched high and low for a case to turn into a race baiting hysteria like the Tawana Brawley hoax of 1987.

      The Trayvon Martin case fit the bill. The evidence only support Zimmerman’s claim of self-defense, so Zimmerman is unconvictable.

      When Zimmerman is acquitted, the race riots are as predictable as they are inevitable.

      Sharpton should have been reduced to working as a janitor in a public school in a ghetto somewhere. Instead he has made a career of being a media celebrity.

      When the president associates himself with a known fraud like Al Sharpton, it shows that our country already has gone down the toilet.

    What Thoughts Do You Have About The LA Riots 20 Years Ago? The violence, looting and destruction made me sick. To see people act like that was disgusting! I was ashamed to call LA my hometown back then, and I’m not sure things have changed for the better. What do you think?

    Why Do These Riots Tend To Happen In Election Years?
    Al Sharpton, Trayvon Martin family urge peace on 20th anniversary of LA race riots
    ‘Civil rights activist Al Sharpton tells Yahoo News that he and Trayvon Martin’s parents are urging peace at events to mark the 20th anniversary of the deadly race riots that engulfed Los Angeles following the 1992 Rodney King verdict. The group is addressing a church Thursday night.

    ‘”Twenty years ago I came out here after that protest after the verdict and tried to discourage the violence, and 20 years later now I’m here with Trayvon’s parents and we’re saying we don’t want violence,” he said. After four white police officers were acquitted in the recorded beating of Rodney King on April 29, the city exploded into one of the deadliest riots in American history, leaving 54 dead and causing $1 billion in property damage.’

    20 years ago was an election year, too.

    Who won that election?
    Kirk, so what you’re saying is we should vote for people who incite race riots.
