Skip to comments.How taxpayers paid for DOJ unit to 'support protests after killing of Trayvon Martin'
Posted on 07/11/2013 4:25:26 AM PDT by IbJensen
Documents published online Wednesday by a conservative watchdog group show that the Community Relations Service, an arm of the U.S. Justice Department, spent taxpayer dollars to help organize and implement plans for the initial string of rallies in Sanford, Florida following the 2012 shooting death of Trayvon Martin.
The protests were openly hostile to George Zimmerman, the volunteer neighborhood watch organizer who killed Martin, 17, after a struggle. Zimmerman is currently on trial in a Florida courtroom, charged with second-degree murder.
(Rev. Al Sharpton (C) spoke at a 'Justice for Trayvon' rally along with Tracy Martin (R) and Sybrina Fulton (2nd L), parents of slain teenager Trayvon Martin, on March 22, 2012 )
(George Zimmerman, shown in an evidence photo with injuries he sustained during the confrontation that ended Trayvon Martin's life, is charged with second-degree murder)
(Thousands of posters were printed demanding Zimmerman's arrest for killing Martin. These signs were funded by the Service Employees International Union local 1199, a health care workers union)
(Trayvon Martin supporters marched before a town hall meeting about the shooting on March 26, 2012. Rev. Al Sharpton, Rev. Jesse Jackson and NAACP president Benjamin Jealous all spoke at the event)
The agency's Florida activities did include providing 'technical assistance' to law enforcement and city managers in Sanford.
The Orlando Sentinel reported earlier in the same week that the DOJ's Community Relations Service 'helped set up a meeting between the local NAACP and elected officials that led to the temporary resignation of police Chief...'
The Sentinel also reported that Community Relations Service employees arranged a 40-mile police escort for students calling for the police chief's ouster who were traveling from Daytona Beach to Sanford.

A conviction of George Zimmerman will mean that the American 'justice' system has finally collapsed.
Holder, weaponizer of narcoterrorists,
burner of living American children,
and defender of all terrorists (by Magistrate judges+),
is behind this racial, unjust abomination.
The GOP controlled House also controls the purse strings.
If the House did its job, it would withhold funding until those responsible have been held accountable.
This administration is the worst kind of banana republic dictatorship. But, with a few exceptions, the GOP-e enables it.
This supports my ideas that rather than riots the Dems will again go for protests and Holder will charge Zimmerman with some hate crime or civil rights violation, if he is acquitted. It would be consistent.
Riots hardly help Dems or Obama.
“This supports my ideas that rather than riots the Dems will again go for protests”
How do they control the kids with Obama phones orchestrating flash mobs just for the fun of it?
Do they shut down all phones which in and of itself would lead to a riot?
You may be correct about the response, but it’s also possible (and I believe, likely) that the Progressives have started something that will quickly spread out of their control. The difference between a protest and a riot is one guy throwing a brick. If that happens, the dam bursts.
When do we start burning our 1040 forms?
In such a situation Obama would if need be get on TV and call for calm.
But the left like Sharpton will be organizing peaceful protests maybe lumping the killing with the recent SCOTUS VAO decision to form a 1960s civil rights narrative.
Their end goal to to try to raise non-white voter turnout for next years midterms. Riots would only hurt them.
In fact if a progressive-hater was evil (not suggesting this) they would infiltrate the leftist crowds and instigate trouble then disappear.
The purpose is to make them look more crazy then the media made the Tea Party out to be.
Srry, not VAO, I mean VRA=Voting Rights Act decison
Thank you foreign media for doing the job our lazy a**es won’t do.
“But the left like Sharpton will be organizing peaceful protests maybe lumping the killing with the recent SCOTUS VAO decision to form a 1960s civil rights narrative.”
I believe that will follow the riots which have been set in place and can’t be stopped.
It’s during these so called peaceful protest that I believe there is going to be 1 or more IED set off, in one or more cities where the protest are taking place.
Of course they will be set off AFTER the so called Black leaders are a safe distance away.
The bombings will of course be blamed on “crazy ass crackers” wanting to hold the Blackman down.
That’s when all hell is going to break loose in every city in the US.
The left will for all practical purposes have their race war they have been pushing for for over 50 years.
Don’t burn them. Just don’t mail them in.
This nonsense about federal dollars paying for demonstrations shows how unethical bloggers can twist facts beyond reality. The money was spent to help the city manage, defuse and accommodate protests that were going to occur anyway. The Justice Department office involved is charged with keeping the peace when civil rights tensions get dangerously high. They did not foment racial discord or protests. These folks may want to get back on the case of Obama’s birth certificate.
You have quite an imagination. Entertaining though
Obama would get on TV and call for calm and announce that the justice department is pressing charges against Zimmerman and then invoke stories of the peaceful civil rights victories of 1960s in South as a parallel(FBI vs KKK) , demanding that congress repass that part of VRA, to drum up lib voters to vote.
Such a scenario that you imagine would be the worst nightmare for libs and Obama. It would be Christmas for conservatives.
Tony is full of crap and is a Holder sycophantic pants wetter.
So you think it’s just my imagination the left has been pushing for a race war for over 50 years?
You have quite an imagination. Entertaining though.
It would serve as a symbol done in conjunction with demonstrations of dissatisfaction with ongoing government waste, intimidation, and corruption (e.g., the iconic burning of bras, draft cards in times past).
I’m all for the burning of bras as long as the Democrat female Congressthings are in them at the time.
Hillary wears a bra, but it’s stuffed with padding that could be highly flammable.
They are winning that war in national elections, they have no reason to screw it up by doing what you suggest.
If a GOP was POTUS such as Romney, then riots and disorder could help them as with Clinton in 1992.
But with Obama as POTUS that's shooting themselves in the heads. I am sure in the 1960s there were anti-civil rights instigators trying to get the mobs to riot, but the other side knew better.
Let me guess, you’re one of these kooks that doesn’t accept the premise the left wants absolute power.
You believe the left are really good people that are willing to share power with the right and they really want what’s best for the country.
You also believe the left are champions of freedom and would never take away your constitutional rights such as your right to own a gun or control your speech with “hate speech” laws.
You also believe King Zippo and the rest of the left have done everything to unite the races and not divide, it’s those evil “right wingers” that are dividing the races by taking away Blacks right to vote.
The left in this country are no different that leftist in every other country.
They have always known they can get power without violence but they can’t get absolute power without violence much less keep it.
Let me guess, you are one of those kooks who see the country being completely blown up tonight, everynight.
Dems are winning using elections and office power. Obama-voters rioting can only hurt them and their causes
The thing you miss is the fact in 1996 the Clinton WH was doing everything it could to gin up civil unrest (Black churches being burned ring a bell?) then Clinton’s buddies the Chinese were smuggling in full auto weapons for the gangs in LA to make sure Clinton didn’t leave the WH.
You also missed during Clinton’s impeachment, Hillary had herself a little plan known as “The Scorched Earth Policy” which was a plan to orchestrate race riots. The premise is from Bill Ayers book “Prairie Fire”.
Find an incident, a spark to ignite the flame, ratchet it up to a raging inferno.
WOW what a coincidence!
Obama is following is good buddy Bill Ayer’s Weather underground playbook.
Here’s something else you’re probably not aware of from the Weather Underground playbook.
When the left is out of power they will orchestrate civil unrest and terrorist attacks so as to make the claim the govt is becoming a dictatorship when steps are taken to stop the violence.
When the left is in power they will orchestrate civil unrest and carry out terrorist attacks, blame it all on the “right wing extremist”, then take steps necessary to subdue the “violent right wing extremist” by taking away civil rights like free speech claiming it’s hate speech or taking away guns for the good of the people.
Think of the Clinton’s and the aftermath of the OKC bombing where they tried to control “right wing hate speech”.
You live in dream world about the left.
The left wants absolute power and they don’t care how they get it.
You don’t think riots help democrats? Gimme a break - it keeps all their ‘victim groups’ in line. Besides democrats don’t need the respectable or white vote anyhow. They’re the party of criminals...
Sure, we look at the situation and figure that cooler heads will prevail. Some of them look at the situation, see that they're winning elections and political power - and figure that gives them license to drop the go along / get along pretense and act however they want. Here, that may still seem like a foreign concept - but it's very common in other parts of the world.
No, that would hurt them and turn out GOP vote and repress Dem vote next year,
Obama will press for protests and prosecutions of Zimmerman as Obama gives speeches about how much more civil and principled libs are compared to those Tea party cave dwellers, and how Dems must make their voices heard AGAIN in 2014 elections.
Riots would blow the whole thing up, wishful thinking on this side I am concluding.
HA-HA, all your terrible sounding conspiracies have something in common, they are ‘little known’ as you say because none of them were executed, there were no race riots under Clinton. Clinton made sure of that as Obama will.
Great fiction though. Call Oliver Stone
Reading comprehension is your friend introduce yourself sometime.
“Little plan known” which is what I said and “little known” which is what your reading comprehension level sent to your brain, have two completely different meanings.
The protest turns into a riot when the first window breaks and nothing is done about it.
The numbers don’t add up for a “race war”.
Even though it appears that there are a lot of “minorities”, ie, blacks, it’s just because they are concentrated in urban centers.
Overall, the ratio is still about 12:1. If they intend to use black thugs as punishment squads for conservatives, they’d have to spread them out over huge swaths of land, inhabited by a lot of folks that have well calibrated, scoped deer rifles.
‘Little known’ because nothing ever happened just like with this. Clinton made sure as Obama will. This will be 'little known' after nothing happens too.
Lets see, you read that in American Spectator?
Dems want the Tea party to race riot under Obama, not their own voters.
You get parts of cities where nobody from different races can enter without getting shot, it will be called a “war zone” just like when you have “war zones” for gangs.
A member of a gang enters another gangs territory they get shot, it's called “war zones”.
You get entire areas of cities where no one but Blacks or Hispanics can enter without getting shot, not just run the risk of getting shot, but get shot or shot at, and you have a race war. There is no other name for it.
A good example is south of the border is called a “war zone” because the drug gangs are at war with each other.
Are whites going to go Medieval on the other races? Of course not, but at the same time they come to whites neighborhoods looking for trouble there will be a response. Whites will not sit back and do nothing.
Up until now, for the most part they have.
“Little known because nothing ever happened just like with this. Clinton made sure as Obama will. This will be ‘little known’ after nothing happens too.
Lets see, you read that in American Spectator?”
It’s past time for you to back away from the bong.
You make a statement then ask me if I read it in the American Spectator.
Right now Blacks can kill Whites or Hispanics and it’s not a race war.
Hispanics can kill Blacks or Whites and it’s not called a race war.
When whites start responding to the Black and Hispanic violence with violence, it will be called a race war.
It’s going to be those “Evil, White, right wing extremist” that are going to be held accountable for starting the race war.
It’s all in the language.
is that what makes your wacky conspiracies go away? The bong?
Yep. You are so right.
No matter what the muslims do to Israel and no matter how many Jews the muslims kill, it's not called war until Israel responds then the whole world condemns Israel and claims the response is out of proportion to what the muslims have done.
The left has a playbook and they never deviate from the playbook.
” Dems want the Tea party to race riot under Obama, not their own voters. “
Nobody is paying attention to you, because you are a bong-sucking, illiterate slob!!
Anyone wondering why we are called(and proven to be) the Stupid Party need only read this thread. : )
HA-HA, remember when Spensors gifts sold real bongs?
If these guys were running a real war they would ignore real information on their enemies movements and strategies and instead just assume that they (enemy) plan on bombing themselves. Then when it ends in disaster cry ‘we were sold out again’
What good does Dems massive rioting in LA and other Dem areas do Obama and Dems when he is seen as responsible, after he said that Tayvon was like a son to him?
Who would support a gun ban after a show like that?
” Then when it ends in disaster cry we were sold out again”
Lucy, Charlie Brown, football...
Shultz was a visionary : )
That is the problem with being a community organizing organization. Sometimes the community does what it wants.
Wow, that's exactly what happened after the verdict. How could you know? HOW??? The Seer speaks.
