What's all this talk of Riots? Where anywhere in the US has there been anything that's come close to a riot? And furthermore why would anyone think that any of this was going to automatically escalate into a riot?

Because according to the right, angry blacks = riots.

You're ridiculous, when's the last time you were in Jacksonville? This town just elected it's first Democratic mayor in 20 years, the first black mayor in the city's history. Duval County was in play for Obama in 2008 where he lost by just 5k votes. It's just as much in play in 2012 for Obama. Jacksonville has changed amigo, my neighbors aren't morons.

We just had a video clip of it provided by DesertPunk and I saw coverage of it on the local news here in Miami. I would say that is something close to a riot. Tensions are very high in the general population over this, particularly in Sanford where I have relatives.

Trayvon Martin case: Screams on 911 tape aren’t George Zimmerman’s: experts

2 Forensic experts say screams captured on neighbor's 911 call don't match Zimmerman's voice: report


By Philip Caulfield / NEW YORK DAILY NEWS
Published: Sunday, April 1, 2012, 10:06 AM
Updated: Sunday, April 1, 2012, 10:06 AM

The panicked cries for help caught on a 911 call the night Trayvon Martin was killed were not coming from shooter George Zimmerman, forensic experts say.

Two leading forensic voice identification experts who listened to a 911 call from a neighbor at the Sanford, Fla., gated community where Martin was gunned down told the Orlando Sentinel that the screams didn't match Zimmerman's voice.

Using sophisticated voice match software, Tom Owen, forensic consultant for Owen Forensic Services LLC and chair emeritus for the American Board of Recorded Evidence, told the Sentinel that there was only a 48% chance that it was Zimmerman crying for help on the tape.

Usually, a positive match rates higher than 90%.

"As a result of that, you can say with reasonable scientific certainty that it's not Zimmerman," Owen said.

READ IT: FUNERAL DIRECTOR SAYS MARTIIN'S BODY SHOWED NO SIGN OF BRAWL
Owen, the former chief engineer for the New York Public Library's Rodgers and Hammerstein Archives of Recorded Sound, also said he couldn't be sure that the voice was Martin's because he didn't have a sample of the teen's voice.

But a second audio sleuth said he heard the teen screaming for his life.

"I believe that's Trayvon Martin in the background, without a doubt," Ed Primeau, an audio engineer and forensics expert from Michigan, told the Sentinel.

LISTEN TO AUDIO OF 911 CALL BELOW
Primeau didn't use Owen’s CSI-style voice analysis software, but instead relied on audio enhancement and his own well-trained ear to compare the screams to Zimmerman's voice on a 911 call he made shortly before the killing.

"That's a young man screaming," Primeau said.

THOUSANDS OF PROTESTERS MARCH THROUGH SANFORD TO CALL FOR ZIMMERMAN'S ARREST
The experts' analyses were the latest blow to claims from Zimmerman's camp that he shot Trayvon in self-defense during a life-and-death struggle on Feb. 26.

Last week, a Miami funeral director said Marin's body showed no signs of a brawl, and EMS documents obtained by the Daily News suggested the 28-year-old insurance agent didn't sustain any injuries either in the alleged dust-up.

Zimmerman's friends have said that the volunteer watchman suffered a broken nose and wounds on the back of his head during a fight with Trayvon.

But police station video shot shortly after the killing appeared to show Zimmerman without any bruises, cuts or blood stains on his clothes.

Zimmerman has not been arrested and has gone into hiding.

On Saturday, thousands of people marched through Sanford to protest his freedom.

A colleague of mine and I were discussing this yesterday. More and more evidence that there was no struggle, no injuries on Zimmerman, the screaming wasn't Zimmerman's, just more and more things that do not match up with Zimmerman's story.

That was over a college basketball game. Anyway, I knew in this day and age that there was a way to tell who really made the screams on the 911 tape.

I was in Sanford earlier in the week and spoke to people at the courthouse. all that's been going on is some people in the park over there downtown. anything reportedly more than that is the situation being blown out of proportion.

a black caucus or whatever in dc is proposing getting rid of the stand your ground law nationwide because of this.

That's good to hear. Tearing up the town certainly isn't going to do anybody any good.

Bear in mind that when I said this, my sources are my own family, two of whom are young male cousins around Trayvon Martin's age.

There seems to be much speculation that perhaps Zimmerman has fled the state...

Who can blame him ? The pitchfork-wielding mob has already tried and convicted him.

Trayvon Martin shooter George Zimmerman to be charged today

Orlando Sentinel, File / AP Photo
FILE - This recent but undated file photo taken from the Orlando Sentinel's website shows George Zimmerman, according to the paper. Zimmerman is losing weight, suffering from high levels of stress and unable even to perform the simple task of buying a soda at a grocery store because of the intense public scrutiny he is under, his former lawyers say. Florida special prosecutor Angela Corey is expected to charge as early as today neighborhood watch volunteer George Zimmerman in the shooting of Trayvon Martin, according to a law enforcement official close to the investigation, The Washington Post is reporting.

It was not immediately clear what charge Zimmerman will face.
Corey has called for a news conference for 6 p.m. today.

Martin, 17 and unarmed, was shot and killed Feb. 26 by Zimmerman, who said he was acting in self-defense. Police in Sanford, Fla., where the shooting took place, did not charge Zimmerman, citing the state’s “stand your ground” law.

I agree with you.

I even think it was self defense. and he was attacked first by Marting.
I can't believe the mob have to dictate our rules specially with the Obamas and holder backing them up.
I will be willing to donate money for his defense

Obama can start saying good bye to Florida in november.
At least here in Arizona he will never win an election
