Well -- one on -- -- for Neil Cavuto on this is your World Bank's.
All under attack and now amid the bashing the boycotts groups targeting the sunshine state where the decision came down going for a boycott of everything from Disney.
The Florida oranges added up and it looks like a tsunami of anti capitalism from coast to coast.
-- Cooper co chair of the project 21 in Los Angeles and Mike Huckabee in Florida thank you gentlemen for coming.
These guys say the protests are off the mark when we start with you mr.
Cooper I read a blog from you today said.
This is all wrong protesters fine but boycotts are -- Absolutely it's not inappropriate to blame the state of Florida if you're -- -- -- -- outcome.
I'm not clear on how effective a such a claim or an attempt is going to be in the first place but it's misplaced anger.
The resources and time and energy about you of being killed in America could be far more constructively address.
To issues like the shootings that are occurring in cities like Chicago and Detroit and Milwaukee all over the country.
8000 a year -- happening and I'm not saying much attention focused on it for someone that try to claim that Florida is the problem.
Misrepresenting the reality or they are distorting reality.
Hey governor I'm in fact the defense use the self defense defense in the trial they didn't use a Florida senior ground -- wears -- saying you're coming from.
Well I think they're just frustrated but it's ridiculously wrong on two counts one is as you just mentioned.
Stand your ground was not a factor in this trial they never brought it up they -- -- they didn't they went for the self defense and secondly.
Why you're gonna blame this at a Florida it was the state of Florida that prosecuted George -- for preference takes it didn't think the people who are mad at George Zimmerman.
Ought to be happy that the governor appointed a special prosecutor.
To prosecute George Zimmermann when local authorities couldn't find enough evidence to go to trial as by the way neither could the FBI.
Looks a lot like the the Occupy Wall Street -- protesters that turned violent all.
They have two Summers ago they're breaking windows in fact -- California one of the epicenter is of the Occupy Movement that's what they're doing it again.
Well it does appear to me that some of these people are just interested in mayhem for mayhem -- No one no one has ignored or forgotten that a young man's life was lost.
But the -- proportionality here is what the point here is you know who's going to suffer.
When these businesses are -- burn under -- pact or destroyed.
If those -- that are unable to recover they're going to leave the community.
And if those members those people who live in those communities that are going to suffer.
It is not -- not affect.
The governor of Florida it's not gonna affect the Zimmermann family it's not gonna do anything about the whole issue that they Clinton.
I would argue that we need to have the police be vigilant.
Be hyper alert.
To -- that to the consequences of this because the citizens and not people who live in that community are going to be the ones who suffer the most from all government.
Let's talk about -- for a second governor Scott in Florida was the one who after the police said -- investigator says.
We don't really have a case there have been the prosecutor assigned originally to the case if we don't have enough evidence to get a guilty verdict on this they said no governor Scott said let's bring in special prosecutors.
That are willing to do -- so sounds like to me.
The Florida's big big big government in Florida did everything in -- possible power to do -- -- what what these people are protesting and boycotting.
Well I think he went.
I think he went on the other side of caution to try to make sure that there was never going to be an allegation like they're currently has and now you have Stevie Wonder saying he's never gonna come to Florida again.
He won't go to any state where there's a stand your ground law.
Which again is absurd because that wasn't even a factor in this case.
I think Stevie Wonder is gonna be fine with -- without floor but frankly I think Florida will be fine with a without Stevie Wonder.
But the problem is is when you see these national -- trying to get people to not bring conventions to Florida don't -- Florida products.
That is really absurd.
Because I don't understand the connection.
Between the entire state of Florida and people who operate businesses and somebody who's upset because six jurors.
Taking a look at evidence applying it to the law.
Decided that the man wasn't guilty of what he was charged far that's not something you can blame millions of people in the state of Florida far.
Mystical forgive us if you could look look -- Cameron talked to these -- -- to these protesters what's your message.
-- -- Thing is there's absolutely no justification for the mayhem and the crime.
Again it hurts the very people who live in the communities where these crimes are taking place the second point is.
That people need to understand and and the media in particular that the individuals that are engaging in these kinds of behaviors.
Are actually part of the problem.
They're the predators that seven days a week when there is no trade -- Martin's protests that are going around harming the community.
These -- individuals.
We need to have the police come -- interdict them and prevent them from going forward and finally again.
It punish as the whole state of Florida.
For what I believe we ought to understand is a constitutional privilege.
That other countries don't have but to actually do have a jury process right I appreciated that the president said that we're going to.
Recognize and accept the outcome of this particular -- of the speaker -- but if these.
Boycott school board right they're saying no we don't accept that premise right we leave -- there or scuba thank you very much Governor Huckabee always great to see -- -- --
