WASHINGTON (AP) -- The Justice Department says it is looking into the shooting death of Trayvon Martin to determine whether federal prosecutors should file criminal civil rights charges now that George Zimmerman has been acquitted in the state case.

DOJ statement on #zimmerman is political cover. There’s no way they’re going to charge him. Legal hurdles would be even higher.

Bring it. The dims can’t win any more of the black vote then they already have. This action would only serve to energize the conservative voters that turned out in droves in 2010.
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.
We need to protect and defend GZ like he was the constitution itself because he may as well be.
Yeah. Bonaparte had a flippant attitude in the courtroom. He couldn’t wait to get out of there.
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.
How DARE GZ defend himself against the chosen race. How Dare he!
That’s what it’s all about, folks. Race. We’ve got a very racist government right now, and they’ll do anything to exercise their superior position.
Is Obama gonna put his street cred on the line to go after GZ? He will lose big time...
What ever happened to double jeopardy?
“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. Theyd have a hard time getting even 2-3 jurors to convict Zimmerman in a Federal civil rights case, let alone 12.”
Even if they file it in the District of Columbia and hand select a jury from the citizens of the District?

The corrupt and disgraced Justice Department, with prejudice, is going to further persecute George Zimmerman because they failed to convict him during an unfair trial. They stacked the deck with a judge of questionable character, with funding to questionable rabble groups, and support from a corrupt and twisted media. Now they plan to bring an infinite amount of resources to "punish" Zimmerman.
Can this be a surprise with Eric Holder in charge? Eric already said he plans to support his "people." What a country!
He might be wise to claim refugee status in Russia. I think that Putin’s Russia would provide better justice than Obamugabe’s USSA. Besides, I hear the Black Sea is very nice.
Thinking on the same line. Z is a minority. What about his civil rights
Finally listen to brothers interview on CNN. At the end Lemon asked him about race. It needs a seperate U Tube site. And should be widely distributed. Robert Jr nailed it
Ask OJ Simpson.
This will bite 0bama and the Dems in the azz so hard in the midterm elections and beyond, that they'll regret regret pursuing further charges.
FUBO, FUEH.. THESE TWO are 'double jeopardy' for America!
Hey JD, and while you do that don’t forget to look in the mirror.
I agree. Zimm should leave this 0bamanation for a predominately white, white/Hispanic country.. The blacks in the US-of-Africa will never find him, including Eric WithHolder.
