This video shows why it is important for all of us to show up at Lake Sumter Landing on Jan. 21st. The rally of support begins at 1pm at Market Square.

the video does very emphatically demonstrate (pun!) the media/camera completley ignores the non protestors who can be seen in the background and ONLY focuses on select big mouths acting stupid and talking the talking points assigned.

I do one hundred percent support the work and efforts and discipline of the police. I would not be able to stand as dutifully as they did while some uncontrollable big mouth foul mouths are in my face. My hats off to them.

The issue as is usually the case the media magnifying the isolated few atagonists and present it as a general condition.....all the while hoping they can be there to add fuel to the isolated fire.

If there is any message to be delivered along with supporting the police it should be to denounce the actions of the media and special interest groups (Sharpton, Jackson, Soros, et al). All who have a personal gain to have the unrest continue. Do not let them define who and what the 98% of us are!!!

It would be better to inundate our political leaders with letters of protests and to send a carbon copy to the New York Times

I agree that the media blows so much out of proportion. Yesterday they gave prime time coverage to a group that closed down Rt 93 (Southeast Expressway) in Boston. Nobody mentioned it was a group of 29 protestors. Not exactly worth the publicity that it generated. The silent majority has to stop being silent.

Is this a Villages (developer) sanctioned event? I can not find it anywhere on an events schedule.

I agree that the antagonists are no longer empty barrels. These are decisive individuals/groups who stir the pot. CAN ANYONE SAY TAWANA BRAWLEY??????
the flip side for me is that there are tactics being used by law enforcement..choke hold while man is down... not fighting... cant breathe... and five hefties on him... he died.
I do not think that the offender was the dead man. I come from a family of cops. This group of cops were wrong. IMHO and nothing humble about it.
HOWEVER..... there is othing REVEREND about Sharpton and Jesse is a pot stirring media sucking worm as well.
