My ‘cynical self’ thinks DOJ (and BO) want a not guilty, have a day or so of ‘civil unrest’ (why am I so kind) THEN turn around and charge and try GZ under the Fed statutes.
Win-Win for the admin, they get to ‘allow’ a little unrest, then ride in and save the day and get Zim on the Fed charges, throwing in a ‘hate crime’ while they are at it.
I think they should just give GZ a gun while in the dock and tell him to off himself. That should ‘please’ everyone.
Oh yes, how many people have been charged with the (supposed) death threats directed at GZ on twit, tweet, twat or whatever?
Of course ‘the Fed’ will say it is impossible to find the threateners. Try threatening one of the ‘beautiful people’ on the Social Enema (oops I meant Media) circuit...and see how much ‘freedom’ you have...
There are no federal statutes to try Zimmerman under. He is not a government employee so civil rights violations do not come into play.
