Okay, after listening to the new leader of the new Black Panthers, he is basically inciting a riot.

Do you think there will be one? Due to Trayvon shooting?

Do you think Obama, or other presidential candidate should get involved?

If Zimmerman is not arrested or arrested but not convicted then yes. But not to worry they always riot and loot their own hoods. There has never been a riot in any of the places I would step foot into anyway.
I was deployed in a mutual assistance to the Rodney King riots. I never understood the point of destroying your own area.

I think the city where the incident happened will have a strong police presence the day that the grand jury makes their ruling.

Some people will be quite upset and want to cause a major disturbance.

Time will tell.

Is the black panther leader you are speaking about the same Panther that called for Zimmerman "dead or alive?"
Sickening that one of the Panthers is potentially inciting murder, also.

How Many days? I thought of the Rodney King riots and they didn't happen until a verdict, and how we now have riots ready to erupt before a man has even been formally tried,I mean CHARGED and I just got really saddened.

The black leader that said "Blacks are under attack" is being pretty inciteful, too.

I'm just, like many of you probably are, sickened, saddened and not able to guess how soon some burning and looting could occur. There seem to be a lot of folks that want this to happen, and sounds like sooner than later.

Yes, I think if Obama has any honor that he should try to quell the racism but from what I've found of his administration being racist I'll just hope some of our candidates try to speak about it, but they're all white. Sadly, I doubt they will do anything but bring angry replies.

I don't see any realistic way for this to be quelled.

I see too many public figures whipping things into a frenzy.

I imagine the riots will amount to the usual breaking windows, and stealing toilet paper in bulk, from stores owned by Koreans in the hood.

It's quite possible. This is the perfect storm.

The riots won't be in Florida.

Koreans always own the markets in black neighborhoods. Walmarts are not allowed in these areas for fear they may ruin the neighborhood.
