Houstonians Shut Down 288 In Trayvon Martin Protests Day & A Dream Team July 15, 2013 Flicks, News, Top Posts 16 Comments Hundreds of Houstonians peacefully marched through Third Ward earlier this evening in the wake of the George Zimmerman verdict. The march continued on towards a stretch of 288 where protesters blocked vehicles and continued moving in anger, disgust and pain over the verdict. Carrying a coffin, protesters walked across Southmore and downward onto the highway in a sea of colors and races. Zimmerman was acquitted of second degree murder in the February 26 shooting death of teenage Trayvon Martin.

Bunch of retards. Reply Racist to yourself July 15, 2013 Good thing i take 59. Go Protest at Yellowstone where i got robed black on black crime. Reply pappysteel July 15, 2013 Typical view of peaceful, blocking moms and dads from getting home, from taking their kids to the doctor, blame others, don’t take responsibility, what others can I say. Oh ya a black man murdered a black firefighter in front of his daughter today. Where are you protesting now? Reply DDW July 16, 2013 i agree with the protest, but we have to stop the Black on Black crime, it is a serious issue. Reply Neil Parker July 16, 2013 I was just curious is ignorance truly bliss? I thought you might know since your statement is exactly that. While I agree that black on black crime is a problem, you are agreeing with a protest that is not about that. It is about white on black crime (which is not any where near as major a problem that black on black crime is) that the protestors are acting a fool over. Therefore, by your own statement you are supporting a protest that is not protesting the “serious issue” that you seem to feel needs to be protested. By the way, “the crime” that is being protested was declared self-defense by the jurors of the case therefore they are not actually protesting a crime at all. Reply You2Know July 16, 2013 Um, hey Retard, the protesters were crossing 288, not just standing there blocking traffic. Pedestrians legally have the right of way. And the protest started after 7pm, so doctor’s offices are closed. Who do you think you’re manipulating with your retarded comments? Reply Kam July 16, 2013 actually crossing highways is illegal because foot traffic is illegal on highways… get your shit staight Reply You2Know September 18, 2013 Funny, no one was arrested and no major media source mentions your archaic legality claims. Obviously they received clearance from authorities prior to the protest. Face reality! John July 16, 2013 How about these black people get a job’s then they wouldn’t have time for this crap!!! Reply Guest July 16, 2013 At 7 at night people are off work by that time Reply clambydaham July 16, 2013 There would have been a lot of people bouncing off the hood of my car…..

Reply Rob Kempton July 20, 2013 only idiots block traffic Reply T August 22, 2013 I see a sea of colors, as in different colored clothing…. And a sea of one race… and last I checked light skinned african americans are still considered black…. Trayvon’s death although a tragedy was justified in self defense….. I doesn’t make anyone feel good, it just makes it legal to defend yourself.
