New Adventures of the Compassionate Curmudgeon

In which I tend to rant. A lot. But compassionately...

Trayvon Martin Rally in Love Park

The rally at Love Park (Center City Philadelphia) for the verdict in the Trayvon Martin killing.

I'm not much of one for rallies, as I tend to think they're often counterproductive, but I thought I'd take a look at the Trayvon Martin rally in Love Park, since it's only about five blocks away. 

There were signs calling for boycotts of Florida tourism and orange juice; those seem to me to be misplaced, as those industries have nothing to do with the case.

I had no sooner arrived at about 6pm, when the rally turned into a march, and the people started heading down 15th street, blocking traffic as they went. 

The Trayvon Martin rally in Love Park becomes a march down 15th street; don't know where they were headed.
