Sanford braces for possible Zimmerman riots

What's the potential fallout from the George Zimmerman murder trial?

With its all-female jury now in place, the trial that's become a hot button for racial tension in America is one step closer to a resolution.

But what will happen in Sanford, Florida - the town where 17-year-old Trayvon Martin was shot and killed last February, if George Zimmerman is acquitted?

CNN's David Mattingly has the story.

    If the race baiters stay away, nothing will happened, if they show up with the parents who are using their sons death for financial gain show up there will be trouble.

    According to Erin's statement on air Zimmerman is not white but Hispanic, and this is my doubt: If Zimmerman is Hispanic -not white !!! – then Spain is not in Europe, or white people just come from Switzerland, Sweden, Norway, Germany, Netherlands and however -why not, after all- from the egregious British Islands, including north Ireland of course; no way to be considered white here in the US -might be different in Nigeria or India?- if you were born in Spain, Argentine or Cuba, even if your skin is whiter than milk; smart eh...?????????????

    Who’s rioting? George may have a Germanic sounding last name but he’s obviously Hispanic. Are we going to see Hispanic support for George like the blacks have for Trayvon Martin?
