Skip to comments.Outraged NAACP Wants Feds to Prosecute Zimmerman (civil rights probe opened by DOJ)
Posted on 07/14/2013 8:30:13 AM PDT by Innovative
"We are outraged and heartbroken over today's verdict," NAACP President Benjamin Jealous said in a statement.
"We will pursue civil rights charges with the Department of Justice, we will continue to fight for the removal of Stand Your Ground laws in every state, and we will not rest until racial profiling in all its forms is outlawed," Jealous said.
A civil rights probe had previously been opened by the Department of Justice and a spokeswoman said the department would continue to "evaluate the evidence generated during the federal investigation, as well as the evidence and testimony from the state trial."

“Outraged” because their racist agenda took a big hit.
Tough toenails, losers.
From The Daily Caller article on the petition’s words..
The most fundamental of civil rights the right to life was violated the night George Zimmerman stalked and then took the life of Trayvon Martin, the NAACP wrote. We ask that the Department of Justice file civil rights charges against Mr. Zimmerman for this egregious violation.
I think this administration has already spoken on “right to life”
Yup, I (and probably many others) called this. It’s just like the officers that apprehended Rodney King. Found not guilty, so the feds arbitrarily prosecute them on bogus civil rights charges.
Zimmerman could still be held responsible for Martin’s death
The NAACP is pushing the U.S. Department of Justice to file a civil rights suit.
The Rev. Jesse Jackson told CNN’s “New Day” on Sunday that his Rainbow PUSH Coalition also wants the Justice Department to look into possible civil rights violations in the case.
The FBI already investigated this case. They don’t have any more than the state does. I just hope The contents of Martin’s phone get out to the public. We already know he was caught with stolen jewelry. The feds have to know the stink around this mess of a case. Do that want that on them too?
Stand your ground was not invoked in this trial. And if you want racial profiling ending, work to try and halt so many black males from acting like thugs and criminals - you know, the way Trayvon was acting in the months leading up to his death.
Ben Jealous? There is no civil rights case to follow up. The criminal case result was not guilty. What civil rights abuse happened as Z was being pummeled and his head bashed on concrete and he defended himself?
If the NAACP wants to find a ruling that a person is not legally allowed to defend themselves then they could make an argument of sorts. This is ridiculous And of course the pursuit of it is in pursuit of money from libs and others.
Right to Life. Really? Those three words make liberals go crazy. Oh, the irony. The race hustling operators took a big hit last night. Time for America to move on.
“Stand your ground law”, or not...threaten me or mine and you’re dead meat.
They’re going to call me racist anyway, so there’s nothing to lose but my life if I do nothing.
The first and most difficult hurdle for Zimmerman is over. But this is a marathon, and the trial was just the first steps. They are going to be relentless and hound Zimmerman and his family are completely destroyed,,,or dead. DU’ers are calling for Zimmerman to be gunned down in the street. This will never end for Zimmerman. Thats why he should just say eff it and leave the country.
“....we will continue to fight for the removal of Stand Your Ground laws in every state....”
Changing it into Cower And Run laws instead?
My right to self defense is not restricted by the color of my attacker. FU NAACP
These people are beyond stupid.
Where is the NAAWP when you need them.
Obama’s trinity church is holding a seance to allow Trayvon to speak about the trial outcome.
you mean ala Black Panthers on video??
We knew the ‘justice’ department would not let this stand. They will harass this innocent man and heap on his back all the alleged evils of Whites since the beginning of history.
This would have negative fallout for the Obama administration, therefore it "aint gonna happen." Trayvon Martin and George Zimmerman have already been used for their purpose during the General Election. Their purpose was to instigate racial division and hate to get the minorities to the polls to vote for Obama. Martin and Zimmerman are not longer of any use to Obama and have a negative value to him at this time.
“Thats why he should just say eff it and leave the country.”
He can’t leave. He has to stay here and make money. You can’t live on thin air, and he’s basically close to broke. Plus his wife still has charges against her that will have to be addressed, as the State of FL will now go after her vociferously. If they can’t get George, they’ll get his wife Shellie and toss her in the clink if they can get away with it. However, MoM and West to the rescue again.
“Zimmerman being half Black”
Zimmerman is half Peruvian (hispanic), 1/8 Black, and the rest White
Agreed. A federal prosecution of Zimmerman would tick off a lot of swing voters in the upcoming midterm elections, thus making a Rat takeover of the House impossible.
I am holding my tongue...because what would be said would reflect very badly on FR.
So now neighborhood watchers are stalkers?
I’m getting really sick of the idea that because of a “history” that most blacks weren’t even alive for, because they weren’t even born yet, that they get to run around exacting revenge for it.
yep really damn sick of it.
Ben Jealous is a “White Black”. Son of a “White” man and a “Black woman”.
And on top of that, they really don’t actually seem to know anything about that history.
Martin was killed while in the commission of a violent felony.
The NAACP promotes violence.
They should be charged under RICO statutes.
They say racial profiling should be outlawed yet they’re racial profiling Zimmerman as guilty based on his race. The irony.
I’ve read that his GF was black and his mother 1/2 that would make it 1/4 in any case they generally say anyone with black blood is black
yep really damn sick of it.
As am I. It has come down to this: Racism has become the new charge utilized to explain why any group is unwilling to improve their socio-economic status through hard work, or to justify being a failure and burden on the broader population. It has been ingrained into the mush filled skulls since birth that someone owes them something just by nature of their existence and if anything ever gets difficult, it's racism.
This needs repeating :
I have no idea what trial the NAACP was watching , but the Zimmerman trial obviously wasn't it !
That having been said, this "SHOW TRIAL and the allegations have run their course for a year and a half.
Why call it a "SHOW TRIAL" ?
Because it was politicized , commercialized not only by politicians,and race baiters,but especially by the media !
The media jumped on this case 2-3 weeks AFTER the assault.
The media altered audio tapes to demonstrate non-existant racial profiling, when they KNEW that it didn't exist !
The media selectively showed Trayvon's picture at age 13 yrs old, a purposely deceptive tactic.
The media selectively showed George's photo in black and white, purposely to not see broken nose, or blood on both temples , or the back of the head.
The media then ran with the propaganda , especially when the president said : "If I had a son ,..."
Then they worked themselves into a frenzy, already finding Zimmerman guilty BEFORE trial.
The media poisioned the community against Zimmerman for OVER A YEAR with their propaganda ; each network tried to out-do each other with the sensationalization .
If anyone is selectively running "racial profiling " , .. it is the NAACP !!
It's all about energizing the potential voter base !
'Stand Your Ground' was never an issue in this trial !
This trial was all about 'SELF-DEFENSE' from a 'sucker-punch' ,a broken nose ,banging someone's head on concrete , and MMA "Ground-and-Pound", choking on blood , vs. the use of a firearm .
we want white people to have to legally run away when a black person attacks them. hat’s basically what they want. total safety when they feel dissed and want to punch and attack someone. put it onto the victim to get the hell away from the violent attacker before figuring thinking about fighting back.
imagine saying to women you have to try to put a condom on the rapist before fighting back from being raped.
you are already guilty in their minds anyway. guilty by being white.
i’m gonna steal that statement.
With all the "racial homogenizing" that 's been going on for thousands of years, I'd guess that everyone currently breathing has a drop or two of "black blood". Actually it's just as red as all the rest...
NAACP went off the rails along time ago. What was once a serious organization dealing with serious issues has devolved into an association whiners begging to go “back to Egypt” where the slaves were given daily bread by the government..
If racial unrest follows Zimmerman jury decision, blame it on Activist Obama

This is reference to an editorial run in Canada Free Press. The Canadians got it right.! Too bad half of the so called conservatives talk show hosts Ive been listening to cant seem to be willing to connect the dots to what a heavy hand his imperious highness played in this example of socialist justice meted out to serve the policies of the state . Turning this into a show trial replete with wall to wall tv coverage.
.For certain since the not guilty verdict has been rendered the facts of this case are still being concealed by the media such as pictures of both side by side they look like cousins. The mixed area that Zimmerman was a “watch captain” in was struggling with single and groups of young blacks on the prowl.,In some instances armed, preying on homeowners.in his area..That area wasn’t even examinined because it wouldn’t fit their agenda.. Which if done ,if true journalisim existed, because that might explain his action of surveilance . In many watch areas that’s done frequently when the subject disappears from view.
Even after learning the shooter was not Jewish and a very dark skinned “hispanic” Obama did nothing to curtail the hyperbole or tone down his edict creating this as a racist episode. The socialists controlling the media propaganda machine oblidged.. They began claiming the neighborhood watch captain was a white hispanic .or used a picture of a 12 year old Martin instead of the 6 foot 165 pound person he was vs the smaller 140 pound neighborhood watch captain. Worse yet allowed his US Attorney General to use questionable activities to promote a show trial and ignored using a threat of prosecution to black militant groups threatening the watch captains life.
Meanwhile attacks by black groups on selected happless white victims which wind in their death get ignored by the mainline socialist messengers MSM service and black on black killings many of the age of the so called victim is likewise same-o same-o.
It's true. I'm probably no more than 1/4 black, and my dad even less, but it clearly says, "negro" on both our birth certificates.
I’ve a book on DNA that says most of the people in the South have black blood as most of the black people have white blood
I remember an archaeologist's comments about statues of Roman citizens. In the early days of the Republic the statues were depicted with straight hair. As the Roman influence expanded through conquest, commerce linked the far corners of Empire. Trade developed in all sorts of goods, including slaves from North Africa. Statues suddenly developed curly hair! Imagine that, who would have thought that might happen?
That old push, push, push is what makes the world go round. My roots trace back to northern Europe (Baltic Sea). My Father had ruler straight hair, my Mother's hair was curly. She had four children, my two brothers had straight hair, my sister and I have curly, wavy hair... Give it another thousand or so years and the human race will be mostly brown eyed, dark curly haired people with a permanent "coffee, two creams" golden brown complexion.
Between them, Gregor Mendel and Charles Darwin have set the stage. Dominant genes have survival value, recessive genes not so much. Limiting the species birth rate is not a long term strategy for survival. Breeding like rabbits seems to work better for the rabbits, (insects, fish, & frogs too), (it gives dominant genes more room to work), (It's a lot more fun)...
