BOWARD COUNTY, FL – Remember how you felt after you heard OJ Simpson’s verdict? What about when you heard Casey Anthony was going free?

People get pretty worked up about the outcome of high-profile court cases, and you know the George Zimmerman trial will be no different.

They even took time to make a P.S.A. with a catchy little phrase we know will be at the front of everyone’s mind when the verdict is read; “Raise your voice, not your hands.”

An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure, but doesn’t this seem a bit preemptive?
