The DOJ is considering Federal Civil Rights Violation charges against George Zimmerman in the shooting death of Trayvon Martin. Can’t say I’m surprised; this administration will do anything to grab some headlines. My issue is that Attorney General Eric Holder is promising ‘compassion’ and ‘truth’ in the DOJ’s investigation of the matter. Truth?! I don’t believe that for one second. Where is the ‘truth’ about the ‘fast-and-furious’ guns in Mexico scandal? Where is the ‘truth’ about the Benghazi cover up? Where is the ‘truth’ about the IRS scandal? Where is the ‘truth’ about the NSA surveillance programs? This administration is using Holder as it’s puppet to drive a media campaign designed to appease those who disagree with the verdict. What about double-jeopardy? Zimmerman was found not guilty! Move on! If the DOJ charges Zimmerman with civil rights violations, it will be because people like Al Sharpton stirred up enough racists in the streets for Obama to put down his 9 iron long enough to get his Holder puppet out. I don’t know about you, but I would expect some civil rights violations getting filed against OJ Simpson… Here we go… Complete Bull$hit.
UPDATE – 08/29/13 – In a speech at the social action luncheon of the Delta Sigma Theta sorority, Holder pledged that the Justice Department would “continue to act in a manner that is consistent with the facts and the law” and would work to “alleviate tensions, address community concerns and promote healing” in response to the case. People! Zimmerman was found not guilty. Get over it!
