Screenshot From Broward County Sheriff’s Office Zimmerman Verdict Public Service Announcement

Broward County Sheriff’s Office released a public service announcement urging the public to raise their voices instead of their guns after George Zimmerman‘s verdict is read, CNN reports.

However, some may find the message very insulting to the community it is suppose to reach. In the video are two teenagers, one Hispanic and the other African American, who stand in front of five police officers and a small group of people of various ages behind them.

The boy says,”Let’s give violence a rest, because we can easily end up arrested.”

The girl chimes in, “Let it roll off your shoulders. It’s water off your back, don’t lack composure. Because in one instant it could be over.”

The video was made in anticipation of possible violence steaming from the verdict the jury will find in Zimmerman’s murder trial. The former neighborhood watchman fatally shot 17-year-old Trayvon Martin in February of 2012 as he was walking towards his home. The racially charged trial has authorities worried that violence may ensue, no matter the verdict.

“Freedom of expression is a constitutional right,” the sheriff’s office said. “While raising your voice is encouraged, using your hands is not.”
