On the third night of Trayvon Martin‘s supporters rally in Los Angeles, California, the Zimmerman protesters are not only getting out of hand but also becoming dangerous. Wal-Mart was raided, windows of businesses like Men’s Wearhouse and Jack in the Box got smashed, reporters got assaulted, a waiter at Flora restaurant got hit in the head with hammer-wielding masked protester, more vandalism and flag burning and for the first time since the Sunday protests L.A. police made 13 arrests.
If this will continue, the spread of more violence is going to cost California a lot of money. Not only businesses have to shut down early to protect themselves from being mobbed, they would be worried too of possible property damages in case the ‘peaceful protesters’ decide to smash their windows or worse. Californians have to be careful also going out at night because you don’t want to get caught in the middle of these protesters or worse get their car smashed.
As for travelers, the Zimmerman protest is not going get anyone excited about going to California. There will be fear to go out at night – although unlike Las Vegas there’s not much to do in L.A. in the evenings. The Trayvon Martin rally is California’s summer nightmare. If this won’t be stopped right away, expect the millions of financial damages to the business sector of Los Angeles and other parts of the state.
California has become a dangerous travel alert in just three days just because of the Trayvon Martin mayhem. But if you really want to go to California, I think San Diego is going to continue to be safe because of its Hispanic majority, so if you really want to go to there just go south and play safe.
