GZ isn’t “home free”...not by a long shot.Anyone who’s been paying attention for the last five years or so knows that Saint Trayvon’s DC “dad” will order that he be tried...will order,in fact,that he get life.The *entire* weight of the United States Government will,sadly,be falling on GZ in the not-too-distant future.

It SHOULD be under review. That travesty of an indictment surely violated Zimmerman’s rights. The judge letting that laughable prosecution go to the jury over the defenses motion for a directed verdict put the lives of six women in jeopardy.

Absolutely unreal! There are thousands of guilty defendants who are acquitted every year because of various reasons.
There wasn’t a case to take him to court in the first place!

Zimmerman should file charges against the administration. Use the “ if I had a son he would be trayvon” as proof the white hut incited this. Then use the beer summit as further proof.”

Combine that with the SEIU, new black panthers and ACORN and we can YouTube Obamas racism. Then add in the white bs support and you have some serious campaign commercials.

They have looked into this before and found nothing. I would not be surprised though if they try to hang ANYTHING on him. The prosecution team never used the term “racial profiling” during the case because it just isn’t so. They only said Trayvon was “profiled”, nothing more.

It should be full speed ahead for Zimmerman to sue NBC, Corey and others for false statements. Time for him to go on offense now.

Totally believable, The Power of Government... Sometimes it’s used for good but more often than not it’s used to destroy.

Why? Because like fire, when it’s small it ‘can’ be a good servant. When it’s large and out of control it is a ‘terrible master’ and fire by it’s very nature is a destroyer.

This case if continued somehow, will be far overboard.

Up until this point, though Zimmerman was picked on and railroaded to a point, one could rationalize things as being just the way things are perhaps, when the black guy is in charge.

However if this continues now, Zimmerman is being railroaded.

Let this go, Obama. Move on.

If I were a member of that jury, that spent my time and effort to deliver a verdict and put myself at risk...I would be livid.

All morning long on the Sunday talkies they were ginning up support for the Justus Department going after Zimmerman — but they won’t file diddly squat because they don’t want to be the federal equivalent of Angela Corey and what will now happen to her.

They have no case. They can’t win. The FBI already found no evidence of racism. And this jury verdict found no evidence of “hate” in their acquittal — the necessary element of a federal “hate crime”.

Interesting summary on broader agenda

… At bottom, this is one more way of insisting that the individual no longer matters. It’s a way of claiming that what matters is the group an individual belongs to. In this instance, skin color defines the group. The primacy of the group over the individual is the true devastating operation in America. Individuals have freedom. Individuals have independence. Individuals have potential power. These elements are anathema to fascists.

Groups only have agendas. They seek fulfillment of those agendas through government. That kind of partnership increases, in the long run, the dominance of government.

Underneath it all, this is what we’re talking about here: individuals must go, only groups should remain.

This Zimmerman acquittal is a gift (not from God) for the Democrat Party. If they didn’t have this case to try in Federal Court to rally their base for the 2014 elections, they’d have to create another one.

Their biggest challenge would be finding a jury to convict the guy. I suspect the unanimous “not guilty on all counts” verdict — and after only 16 hours of deliberation — is a pretty good indication of public sentiment in this case. They’d have a hard time getting even 2-3 jurors to convict Zimmerman in a Federal civil rights case, let alone 12.

Considering the FBI did a several months investigation involving over 10,000 man hours in to racial aspect of this incident and found———nothing. IMHO this is just puffery on the part of the Administration/DOJ to placate the unwashed masses that constitute their base.

Zimmerman was not charged with a hate crime, he was not charged with murder 1, he was charged with murder 2 with an option of manslaughter, and was found innocent by a jury of his peers. Key to his acquittal was evidence that he was defending himself from an attack by Martin. How do you turn this into a civil rights case without - in effect - placing Zimmerman under double jeopardy?

Obama is going to side step the constitution again (the double jeopardy clause) and keep trying Zimmerman until he is in jail again. Zimmerman needs to get out of the country before he is locked up again.

The other big elephant in the corner of this room is that nobody (including Martin’s family) will ever want to make this a case entirely about race. A big problem they face is that every racially-charged statement in this case — from “creepy-@ss cracker” to all the “n!ggas” in the text messages — have been attributed to Martin and/or his friends.

Martin (Obama’s son) was found with stolen property.

Of course, the DO”J” has no interest because the
property was stolen by a black hoodlum.

How many were previously murdered by Martin??
and how many are already murdered, or burnt alive,
by Holder?? and Obama??

Not really. Holder is a racist bastard who works for a bigger racist bastard.

The only thing they are trying to finesse at this point is Zimmerman’s Hispanic background.

I think that if anybody has a civil rights claim it is Zimmerman against the City of Sanford for their little conclave in the mayor’s office with the evidence that the police were still processing.

I suspect right now that Mr Bonaparte is searching his maps for a little island off the coast of Tuscany for a long vacation.

The Obama administration has been looking for an issue they can use to win back people on the left they have lost over the Snowden case.

They have lost support bigtime because the left is just about 100% in favor of Snowden.

Here's their issue. We'll see if it works.
