WASHINGTON (AP) -- The Justice Department says it is looking into the shooting death of Trayvon Martin to determine whether federal prosecutors should file criminal civil rights charges now that George Zimmerman has been acquitted in the state case.


The statement said that, in the government's words, "experienced federal prosecutors will determine whether the evidence reveals a prosecutable violation."


Is this real? Lol, man idk what's going on with this country.

What's going on you say?

How about how the majority of peoples getting butthurt over one death in the sea of thousands. The African race thinks they can bend the rules to fit their needs. Haven't you noticed the pro martin side of the protests rarely include any Latinos or Caucasians. They can't complain about slavery anymore because that has come to past, so they find a Latino killing a black and turn it into a war. They never care when a black kills a black because its in their own group. When a black kills a white its revenge for slavery in their eyes. But when another race takes one of their ow n they make it the biggest deal in the world. When as I see it we are all just people.

If only americans cared half as much about freedom as they do about one black kid dying out of thousands throughout the world.

I guess Rwanda never happened because it was justified by reason of oppression.

I think the media should have charges brought against them for magnifying the whole thing and bringing it to the forefront of every news channel 24/7. Had they not done this, nobody would have cared or given it a second glance or brought in the racial element and George would have faded into obscurity.

What Federal charges? He was tried for a crime and found "not guilty"...we have laws against charging someone multiple times for the same crime.

The "State" found him innocent. It is done.

Oh wait...that implies the States have sovereign rights over the laws within them...I guess this Administration wanted a guilty verdict no matter what.

This madness has to stop. You can't have the Guns sir...now go play some golf until your term is over...you'll do less damage that way.

What's going on? In my opinion--which is based on years of observation of major events, and how they end up shaping public opinion, followed by related legislation--it's yet another case of "Problem-Reaction-Solution."

The case was cherry-picked when, about a month after the incident, the Justice Department opens a probe for the case. Zimmerman had been allowed to go free, as there were no disputes to his self-defense. At this point, the media circus began. All of this has been orchestrated by the media; the result of countless internal story meetings (that's how media outlets slot the reports for broadcast) in every network and independent news media station.

This is how I'm calling it:

The media's divisive reporting on the whole case, right through to the verdict and beyond, gives us the public perception of the
Problem: Senseless shooting of unarmed, innocent youth by a racist cop wanna-be.
Reaction: (where we are at this moment) Protests and threats of violence from the general public, seeking justice for the the death of this innocent youth.
Solution: It will begin with Government initiating a national dialogue on what more can be done to "curb gun violence." It's very likely it will move on to drafting of actual bill more draconian than the U.S. has seen to date. Then it would be a matter of getting the legislation passed by all three branches of Government.

I want to be wrong in this "prediction." However, having witnessed the wholesale exploitation of the 9/11/01 events to give us the Patriot Act, the TSA, and several other pieces of legislation and Government departments, I may be close.

You can easily tell that a majority of the voices out there protesting the verdict have not made themselves familiar with key points in the actual trial, but rather the encapsulated spin version of whichever media brand they were getting their info from. You can tell, because everyone seems to be parroting the buzzwords; "stalking," "wanna-be cop," "racist," "disobeying police orders," vigilante," and so forth.

So now we will see what the Justice Department does.

The Federal Charges are Civil Rights under Federal Statute. I was in another thread on this last night and looked up all the relevant statutes on this. It fits ..and it's the same way they got the cops in the Rodney King case on the second trial for Federal Civil Rights when the first state trial was an acquittal.

It's not right..but the change of level apparently skirts the Constitutional protection. Whatever I say... They do what they want. Remember this?


Attorney General Eric Holder acknowledged on Wednesday a previously unspoken proviso to the controversial decision to try alleged 9/11 mastermind Khalid Sheikh Mohammed and four co-conspirators in a federal court in New York: even if the defendants are somehow acquitted, they will still stay behind bars.

I just about fell out of my chair when that happened. Even taking the guy from the whole period of military process into Civilian court for politics was insane. Evidence issues alone make it absurd. However, what he SAID there shows there is absolutely no respect for the spirit of the Constitution among some in Government. None at all...and that man is the same one who'll decide if and how to charge Zimmerman with Civil Rights violations under criminal code.

The page you've requested does not exist at this address.


Is it real? Sources, before today were indicating it was, but no verifiable info. Now we have more sources, coming from AP? Well, interesting and concerning considering it's going to cause some bigger issues with the administration, not only that but cause more tension. They are calling it a "civil rights case", "civil rights violation violation" etc.

Searching for it I found sources from;
Fox and HuffPost to the Blaze, Nydailynews and more.

Funny the DOJ website, does not mention that they want to do this.

Well since the state has made Zimmer public enemy number 1.

Zimmerman should drive to an embassy of his choice and request political asylum.

Thats what people do when they are being politically persecuted.
