Feels like Salem in the late 1600's
Yes he is much more of a racist than the Black Panthers who took out a bounty or the Black panthers who intimidated voters with clubs and were not prosecuted by our racist AG.
Stupid move in my opinion. Best thing is to let this die down.
I think they need to investigate to preserve an appearance. However, their investigation should conclude with a finding of not enough evidence to prosecute.
doesn't look like it will get very far
from the article
After interviewing nearly three dozen people in the George Zimmerman murder case, the FBI found no evidence that racial bias was a motivating factor in the shooting of Trayvon Martin, records released Thursday show.
Even the lead detective in the case, Sanford Det. Chris Serino, told agents that he thought Zimmerman profiled Trayvon because of his attire and the circumstances — but not his race.
Serino saw Zimmerman as “having little hero complex, but not as a racist.”
The Duval County State Attorney released another collection of evidence in the Zimmerman murder case Thursday, including reports from FBI agents who investigated whether any racial bias was involved in Trayvon’s Feb. 26 killing.

The FBI gave their year long investigation report to both sides the Thurs. before the trial. It stated that there was no indication of a hate crime by GZ and the profiling done by him was done for the clothing type in the previous robberies matching TM. Guess Holder, Prezbo , et. al. didn't like the verdict?
I don't think the DOJ will act. At least, I hope it doesn't. The jury has spoken.
This isn't Mississippi in the 1960s when the jury laughed at the law.
They need a controversy that doesn't involve Obama's idiot appointees. They can hide behind this and hope we all forget about the NSA, DOJ, EPA, Benghazi, The National Debt, QE infinitum, and most notable the IRS and the Obama-care/TAX.
Not going to work and if they push hard enough on this GZ thing the Liberals just might cause a riot where dozens in innocent people are killed... they will be held accountable if that were to happen.
Totally agree. Unless I missed something during this trial there is absolutely nothing there...
100 percent agree. This would do way more harm than good if it were pursued
I said before a move like this could turn Zimmerman into the Democrats' own Terri Schiavo. Ultimately, the push back the GOP felt back then wasn't about the life issue as much as it was the sheer hubris of an administration and majority so full of self-importance that it wanted to make specific named individuals, whose issues are state law issues, special causes for the exercise of federal power. That's my take, I don't want to have a Schiavo thread on the fly. Point being; the federal government trying to circumvent a state jury verdict on a matter in which they obviously have a far weaker case than the state did... not something that would sit well with the average American.
I am in complete agreement. During the worst days of desegregation, in my opinion it was necessary to find cute ways around the 5th Amendment's proscription on double jeopardy, because in most cases white defendants who committed crimes against black people were never in "jeopardy" in the first place. Trials against scumbags, such as Byron De La Beckwith, were farces with no serious chance of resulting in a conviction.
Now Congress needs to step in and keep the DoJ from having a second chance when they don't like the verdict at the state level. It's not a popular opinion, but I think it was a travesty that the DoJ retried the LA police officers in 1992; like the verdict or not, they had a fair trial and a fair acquittal under the rule of law. If the federal government wants to bring civil rights charges because they don't trust the state, then by all means. But they should do it up front, not after the state trial results in a fair acquittal.
The DOJ is doing it's job. I expect - and hope - they drop it, but reviewing for a different charge than what the state brought is legitimate.
They are doing their job when you expect and hope they drop it?
I think you know they are not doing their job (as your expectation and hope speak to the ridiculousness of what the DOJ is doing)...and I agree they are not.
Their job requires doing a proper review of circumstances before proceeding, no matter what direction they take then. If they decide against bringing a case, that legitimizes the process for the many citizens who are now questioning it.
No, this Florida in the 2010's, where the President essentially laughed at the jury verdict. In not so many words.
DOJ will investigate but highly unlikely they bring charges...
Now a civil suit being pursued is a whole different matter...
OJ was found criminally innocent but guilty in the civil matter.
I missed that. Link?
Your President's pathetic statement yesterday. My reaction was to what little he said, how he said it, what he left out, and how woefully inadequate the statement was, if in fact it was some lame attempt to heal and bring closure.
Instead, my guess is he and Eric had been figuring out how to "honor" the fallen felon, Martin, with a DOJ investigation - on top of the FBI already completed investigation - for a possible civil rights prosecution, and he didn't want to say anything that would contradict that effort.
From the child who would be King.
