Absolutely beyond belief. They have nothing to work with after a year of the FBI digging in an effort to find something with which they can work to bring a civil rights case against George Zimmerman, so
On Monday afternoon, the US Department of Justice appealed to civil rights groups and the general public across the country for tips on George Zimmerman in their pursuit of potential federal civil rights charges against the just-acquitted defendant in the Trayvon Martin killing. The DOJ actually went so far as to set up an e-mail address to allow such tips: Sanford.email@example.com. The email address is slated to go operational by the end of the week.
Barbara Arnwine, president and executive director of the Lawyers Committee for Civil Rights Under Law told the Orlando Sentinel that the DOJ had held a Monday conference call calling on us to actively refer anyone who had any information that would help build a case against Zimmerman. They said they would very aggressively investigate this case, Arnwine stated.
According to Arnwine, the call began at 3:30 p.m. with Tom Perez, Assistant Attorney General for the Civil Rights Division of the United States DOJ, and representatives of the FBI on the line. Several prosecutors joined the call, too.
Thomas Perez, who is up for Labor Secretary and whose nomination has been held up by Republicans in the Senate so far, is the same walking disaster who opted not to prosecute the New Black Panthers for brandishing night sticks and making racist threats outside a Philadelphia polling place in November 2008.(SNIP)And now Perez is heading up what can only be described as a fishing expedition in an effort to find something anything which would support the nonexistent narrative of Zimmerman as racist who hates blacks...

Dollars to doughnut holes they pass a new law and apply it to Zimmerman retroactively.
We now have a full-blown dictator. He flaunts the rule of law.
We could have some fun with this...(whistles innocently)...
Do you really want to go on the DOJ’s list of enemies?
Yeah, me too!!! :)
I hear Zimmerman may have watched Paula Deen on the Food Network once or twice. Should I submit my concerns???
Considering how widespread government surveillance is. (that we just learned about because of the Snowden affair) I'm guessing all of us have been on that list for quite a while....
This Very Well Could Be The Worst Thing The Obama Regime Has Done
you forget , “ YET “
Worse than allowing the murder of 4 in Benghazi?? I DON’T THINK SO.
I fully expect the Homo-in-Chief to unilaterally nullify the Constitution any day now.
I pretty much think Fiona the Hutt has blown all future action against Zimmerman with her interviews on various TV shows.
It’s an official witch hunt.
Hold a brown paper bag up next to your face and look in the mirror.
If it’s darker than your face, you’re on that list.
It can be easily proven that Zimmerman once called for the murder of all weathermen (’You don’t need a weatherman to know which way the wind blows’)!
When Zimmerman was in 5th grade he had to do a report on the country of Niger, that is only one letter from the dreaded N-word! Should be enough evidence for a hate crime charge under Holder.
Not even close to the worst thing this lawless commie has done....
Nope, the worst THINGS this lawless commie has done involve the DEATHS of United States citizens (as well as Mexican ones).
in all matters the race industry no longer want justice or equality. they want to go back to the way they believe things were for black people in the 1950s. Only this time white people's civil rights are violated.
where is the aclu?...where is the aba?.....what has been going on is obscene and IMO illegal action....
Is the tip line the same number they used for the IRS and Bengazi investigations?
Whoever remembers something that Zimmerman said way back when better have a tape recording of the conversation.
However, there is at least one documentable race-related angle:
As you can see, Zimmerman, in an excess of zeal, motivated by his delusions as (in his own mind) a protector-of-the-weak, actually intervened in an incident where the son of a (white) Sanford police officer beat a homeless black man, and the police covered up the incident. Zimmerman took the side of the black man, against the police.
This could be viewed in such a way that Zimmerman was really anti-black, and was using the homeless man to position himself as a hero (white or white + Hispanic = strong) as compared to the victim (black or black + homeless = weak).
This feeds into the whole anti-black stereotype which has formed part of the historic ruling-class meta-narrative since the very beginning of the overt white hegemonic system of the Ante-Bellum South. This certainly includes Sanford, FL, where unexamined assumptions of superiority must certainly run deep in the entrenched elite Anglo-Peruvian community.
Somehow, you've got work it out that the Sanford police were right, and moreover the homeless man would have preferred cover up the video which documented the beating.
Perhaps the homeless man enjoyed the beating, and Zimmerman did not understand the needs and wishes of the Sanford Sadomasochist Community. Zimmerman was therefore not only a racist meddler, but also insensitive towards Sexual Minorities.
He was absurdly over-confident and morally arrogant because of "White Privilege", since he is allegedly half-white, or 7/16 white, or whatever the racist meddler's ratio is.
You might want to find that homeless man and him to remember that Zimmerman had inappropriate attitudes toward racial and sexual minorities. Black, white, brown, LGBT or BDSM, who cares? One way or another, I'm sure you can pin it on Zimmerman.
I think it's worth a try.
P.S. I love that Homeland Security slogan, "See something? Say something." Forward for America!
And me:) Let’s do it.
4 PM Orlando news reports the DOJ has put a hold on all the evidence from the trial.
Absolutely. My son-in-law, a LEO, asked me to NOT go to FR on his computer, as FR is considered full of crazies who need watching -- and we are being watched.
“Do you really want to go on the DOJs list of enemies?”
We post on Free Republic, so we already are...
That’s all about keeping George from getting his gun back.
If Trayvon’s killer had been black, would anyone be claiming Trayvon’s Civil Rights were violated? No!
If that’s the case, then the ONLY difference is that Zimmerman ISN’T black. And that makes it a “hate crime”.
But a murder is a murder. One isn’t any better or worse than another. The minute we start prosecuting people for what’s (allegedly) in their head when they act, that’s the end.
Then again, if Trayvon’s killer would have been black, we never even would have heard about him. Just would have been one more statistic. Right?
This is a government searching for a crime with which to charge a citizen who they wish to punish because a jury of his peers found him innocent in a trumped up case that the government itself tried to contrive.
This is worse than nativism, racism or partisanship.
See if this word fits what's happening:
1.cruel use of power: cruelty and injustice in the exercise of power or authority over others
2.oppressive government: oppressive government by one or more people who exercise absolute power cruelly and unjustly
3.state ruled by tyrant: a country or state under the power of an oppressive ruler
Here is someting all Freerers should know about:
A bill of attainder (also known as an act of attainder or writ of attainder) is an act of a legislature declaring a person or group of persons guilty of some crime and punishing them without privilege of a judicial trial. As with attainder resulting from the normal judicial process, the effect of such a bill is to nullify the targeted persons civil rights, most notably the right to own property (and thus pass it on to heirs), the right to a title of nobility, and, in at least the original usage, the right to life itself. Bills of attainder were used in England between about 1300 and 1800 and resulted in the executions of a number of notable historical figures. However, the use of these bills eventually fell into disfavour due to the obvious potential for abuse and the violation of several legal principles, most importantly separation of powers, the right to due process, and the precept that a law should address a particular form of behavior rather than a specific individual or group. For these reasons, bills of attainder are expressly banned by the United States Constitution as well as the constitutions of all 50 US states.
Holder and Obama make our legal system distinctly resemble Putin’s. They pushed the Constitution and its Bill of Rights aside long ago. Freedom of the Press was happily given away by the mainstream media and Brietbart’s death. It’s only resisted by a couple od Democrats and a dozen or so Republicans. The lynch mobs of the 1920s are back chasing crackers this time.
It’s pretty hard to top leaving 40 people to die in Benghazi or suborning the murders of 2-300 Mexicans.
Well, since there seems to be nobody that can stop them they will do everything they want, and more.
Nice application of the much revered separation of powers. Who’s watching the detectives, huh?!
The Dept. of Just Us is on the job!
What does, “put a hold on the evidence” mean?
YES...I say we flood the address...

It means it must be kept secure, the chain of custody maintained, for POTENTIAL USE IN A TRIAL. They are obviously deadly serious about compounding this witch hunt. It puts the elders of Salem to shame. This is no longer the Land of the Free.
Sign me up too. Remember Napolitano’s statement back in 2009 regarding those that opposed abortion, owned guns, or were returning war veterans? I’d say Freepers are already on the DHS list. Might as well get on a DOJ list too.
Yes, might as well fulfill the role they've made for us and make the most of it.
I'm absolutely convinced that, even though Zimmerman won his trial, that he is being subjected to a "cruel and unusual punishment" by our federal government.
You better believe it. If conservatives don't go on the strong offensive over this, we've lost.
It is already operational.
Just sent in my tip :-)
I know that. That’s why I said it. I was just illustrating absurdity.
