Unrest continued for the third night in Los Angeles as protesters against the Zimmerman verdict stormed a Wal-Mart, attacked bystanders and stomped on cars.

“People protesting George Zimmerman’s acquittal marched along Crenshaw Boulevard on Monday night, stomping on cars, chasing bystanders and storming a Wal-Mart,” reports the LA Times.

“Several protesters made their way into the Wal-Mart as guards scrambled to close security gates. A short while later, Los Angeles Police Department officers wearing helmets and carrying batons swarmed the store as others marched through the parking lot.”

Footage shows demonstrators attacking moving vehicles, as well as stationary police cars, in a flashback to scenes witnessed during the 1992 LA riots. Protesters also lit fireworks in the middle of the road and threw rocks at store fronts while lashing out randomly at people in the street.

Some of the protesters were seen wearing t-shirts featuring an image of George Zimmerman which read “Wanted Dead or Alive” with the last word crossed out.

Following a wave of threats to riot in major cities if Zimmerman was cleared of all charges, trouble flared up almost immediately after the verdict was announced late last night.

The extremist New Black Panthers Party has predicted “unrest all over America” if George Zimmerman is acquitted, although the group denied that it was organizing riots in light of claims its leader had vowed to burn down white communities.

A quote being attributed to New Black Panthers leader Samir Shabazz by numerous Internet sites states, “This time we’re doing it right… This time we’re not burning down our communities. This time we’re going out to Whitey’s suburbs and burning down HIS community. We’re going to make Whitey feel the pain.”

There appears to be no primary evidence that Shabazz actually made that statement, although he has previously made vile threats about murdering white people.
