20 years after the Rodney King riots, what have we learned?

This excellent article examines the backstories of the Rodney King aftermath in light of the Trayvon Martin case.

The best hope for avoiding a repeat of the L.A. mayhem, should blacks not be satisfied with the verdict in the Trayvon Martin case, is that police forces across the country have learned the lesson of the Rodney King riots: that outbreaks of civil anarchy must be immediately and unapologetically suppressed.

It's fairly lengthy but well worth a read.

One of the things that we have learned is that, as time goes by, more unthinking members of the black community, duly led by the professional race-baiters, which includes much of the mainstream media, have come to understand that they have a nice little extortion racket that they can use to duly inglulence public policy, when they wish, by simply implying that they are ready to burn (fill in a town or city name) when it suits their political agenda.

Tell me again that George Zimmerman was charged with second degree murder, because evidence exists to prove that, and not because of the impending violence threatened by the black community.

I saw some of the sappy CNN special report on the LA riots.

What was most inspiring is the footage of the Koreans protecting their neighborhood. With all the Bloomberg talk about citizens not needing firearms, watching what happened when the police got themselves into a jam, and couldn't hold back the mayhem, is a good reminder of just who really protects us.

As said above, Take a lesson

As said above, Take a lesson from the Korean shop owners. Rely on yourself and your buddies, armed to the teeth, and your business and property will survive a riot of idiots. Wait for the police, and they will simply take note of your burned out hulk, pillaged belongings and then file a report....
