Richard, a reader here at Vlad, was thoughtful enough to collect a series of links about reactions to the Zimmerman trial verdict.
These actions I believe are a rather concerning example of a move away from law and order and a move towards tribalism. We did not see, for example, these sort of events when O.J. Simpson was found not guilty after he killed two white people, and not in self defense but because he wanted to do so. They presented no actual threat to him whatsoever. There was however, after a person who’s rap sheet was so long it was not allowed to be read out loud in court at the trial of the police who arrested him as it would “prejudice the jury” at the trial over the Rodney King arrest. Even Toronto Canada had riots over this. I believe it was less than 2 years after the initial Rodney King arrest made so famous by a partial video shown on TV that he was rearrested for child prostitution charges, although I haven’t got a link for that at the moment.
Below are the list of links. If any of you would like to add more, please do so in the comments. Thank you Richard and all.
