"There's been much speculation — some of it stupid and ugly — about how Zimmerman's antagonists will react if he's acquitted."

- Althouse

The only problem with this is that Zimmerman antagonists were at the courthouse yesterday chanting "No justice, no peace!" Anyone want to bet on how the jurors might interpret such chants if they hear them?

And it isn't so stupid to speculate about riots when (a) Zimmerman antagonists have been threatening to riot, (b) the police are taking this very seriously, (c) community leaders are worried that their people might riot and (d) there was looting last year at some of the anti-Zimmerman rallies in south Florida last year.

It is stupid to pretend that this isn't a real problem.

...

With any luck, it will be raining all across Central Florida when the verdict is announced. The should help keep things cool here.

Zimmerman found not guilty. MSNBC blames the prosecution, says the evidence was there for a conviction.
