Skip to comments.The injustice [Even author of Stand Ground says shooter should be arrested-Why is Holder stalling?]
Posted on 03/21/2012 2:39:25 PM PDT by NoLibZone
THE news that the Justice Department will investigate the shooting death of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin is a welcome development in a horrible story. Last month Martin, a high-school student from Florida, was walking to his father's girlfriend's house and talking on the phone to his own girlfriend when he was spotted by George Zimmerman, a 28-year-old man who had appointed himself as a neighbourhood monitor, and who had made dozens of 911 calls over the past year or so. He made another one that night, saying that he had spotted a "suspicious" black man. The dispatcher told Mr Zimmerman to stay in his car, but Mr Zimmerman had already set out after Mr Martin. "These assholes, they always get away," he said in one of the 911 calls, which are posted at Mother Jones. Martin was, in fact, trying to get away; his girlfriend, whose identity is being protected because she's 16, had advised him to run after he told her he was being followed. Mr Zimmerman caught him, and some kind of fight ensued, ending when Mr Zimmerman shot and killed the unarmed teenager. When police arrived, they questioned Mr Zimmerman, but released him, and have since explained they have no cause to bring charges.

The Obama DOJ has had the files for 3 days now.
Based on reports and audios everyone knows that Gerorge Zimmerman stalked and murdered Trayvon Martin.
Even the author of the Stand your Ground law , says that George Zimmerman should probably be arrested.
Why is Eric Holder stalling?
He’s waiting for the riots to begin?
george zimmerman did NOT appoint himself watch monitor! He did NOT make 911 emergency calls, he made non-emergency line standard phone calls! There had been many criminal incidents over past several months in area. Now, start the story over...
Another case from last month that the Obama DOJ has buried:
This is what you deserve. You get what you deserve, white boy. So spewed the attackers of Melissa Coons 13-year-old son, as they doused him with gasoline and set him alight.
Because the longer he stalls, the more agitprop the “community organizers” can put out about how The Man is out to keep them down and kill/eat their children. Holder does nothing, least of all his job, unless there’s political gain to be had from it.
And next you say George Zimmerman is not white!
Are you saying there is more to the case???
Because murder isn't generally a federal crime unless it happens on federal property or in Washington, DC. This would be a crime under the State of Florida's laws.
While I am cynical to think that Obama and Holder are trying to figure out which path would be the least politically risky, I am also willing to chance that the law is conducting a thorough investigation as honesty would ultimately be the least risky path.
I don’t hear anyone calling for FBI to investigate the burning of the Coon kid. (Coon being his real name)
The more dribs & drabs that get out, the more this smells like a setup by a blackwash lynch mob.
Wrong, the feds will charge him and the charge will be a civil rights violation and they will win.
Big Red the liberal and race baiters are foaming at the mouth to make this a racial incident. I am sure if Mr Zimmerman had committed a crime he would have been arrested and not released.
The problem is the race baiters are not happy with the outcome of an apparent justifiable homicide of self defense. They are angered and what to make Mr. Zimmerman a guilty man, based on their hysterical and left-wing mindset.
I am a retired LEO and have seen this too many times with the FUBU crowd. I am glad to see another sane person on the FR.
But in this specific case , the DOJ has been asked to investigate.
And yet , after 3 days- nothing.
I am no supporter of shooting innocent unarmed kids.
However, the lack of charges being filed by this point indicates to me that there is more to this story.
I think it is common knowledge that Zimmerman had pretty serious injuries to his face and head.
Were they defensive on the boy’s part? Or had Zimmerman been attacked? I don’t know, but, there has to be a reason charges haven’t been filed yet.
Is there damage to the car door where the kid drug him out of the car, tear marks on the seat, blood and teeth marks on the steering wheel, he may have hit his head trying to stay in the car. That is it he was holding the door on his head so the big old seventeen year old could not beat the crap out of the twenty eight year old. You are probably on to something here, keep digging.
They are thinking this out so they can use it as a political weapon. Long long trial, ending as an Oct surprise, with him getting off and people so angry, they all come out to vote. They just have to figure out how to tie this to the republicans.
Apparently asking a stranger what they’re doing doesn’t mean you should be beaten, sued and/or prosecuted.
The more tension and public outrage, the better for the divisive purposes of this administration. If there are apparent racial problems and if minorities need a hero in DC who better to fill the bill than O. Some riots would be nice to show all the injustice the tea party is causing.
I don’t like the way the media is pushing the race angle and treating hearsay as fact to condemn the shooter. I don’t know what went down that night but I wish the media would stick to the facts. Showing the picture of the kid when he was 13 years old is also misleading. He was over 6 feet tall when this happened. It’s like they are working to create racial tension.
