we should protect Zimmerman the way we would protect the Constitution,

I'm sure that's very inspiring to GZ these days.

Last night, Mark O’Mara sounded almost as if he relished the opportunity to take on whatever “civil rights” cases the Left thinks they’ve got. Then he told the media to F off.


That was my take also....

I think he/West are ready for the next round....

We need a new press release group ! FR once had contact information for the media.
( JR may know if there is still one)
If we sent a tweet, email etc each time a lie is presented on the media and insist on a redaction we might see some changes
Media is lazy and have little time to do actual research The easy thing for them to do is just let the wheel squeak. We need to provide the oil to correct the problem.

GZ’s smartest move right now would be to go to the Soviet embassy, or the country of some embassy that has a history of abusing human rights, and ask for asylum from the American justice system. I’m sure they would be happy to embarrass America, and right now we deserve it.

Unfreakingbelievable.

Actually no, it is quite believable. When the leftists don't get their way, then "justice has not been served." The left never gives up, and they have already destroyed Z.

Remember how well the left took the election and recall results in WI? They are like little pouting crying babies stinking like a load in their pants. In the end when you put leftists in charge of a country you wend up with anarchy.

e collapse of law is the Obama administration’s most egregious scandal.

Re "Wise words. This quotation is often attributed to George Washington, but no primary source exists. The ostensible quotation is "Government is not reason, it is not eloquence, it is force; like fire, a troublesome servant and a fearful master. Never for a moment should it be left to irresponsible action."

Wikipedia...Attributed to "The First President of the United States" in "Liberty and Government" by W. M., in The Christian Science Journal, Vol. XX, No. 8 (November 1902) edited by Mary Baker Eddy, p. 465; no earlier or original source for this statement is cited; later quoted in The Cry for Justice : An Anthology of the Literature of Social Protest (1915) edited by Upton Sinclair, p. 305, from which it became far more widely quoted and in Frank J. Wilstach, A Dictionary of Similes, 2d ed., p. 526 (1924). In The Great Thoughts (1985), George Seldes says, p. 441, col. 2, footnote, this paragraph “although credited to the ‘Farewell’ [address] cannot be found in it. Lawson Hamblin, who owns a facsimile, and Horace Peck, America’s foremost authority on quotations, informed me this paragraph is apocryphal.” This can be found with minor variations in wording and in punctuation, and with “fearful” for “troublesome,” in George Seldes's book, p. 727 (1966).

That’s silly talk. He’s immune from civil prosecution in Florida, and thanks to our Constitution he’s immune from Federal prosecution on the same charges.

>> 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

In what court? On what charge?

>> will order,in fact,that he get life.

Not possible to do that.

clear case of double jeopardy.

To: Obama_Is_Sabotaging_America

I am so disappointed in how the US has changed. To me, the US used to be a land that I wished my homeland was more like. A land where, with honesty and hard work, all could succeed. Unfortunately, for many, it has become a land of ‘entitlement’, where many feel that they are ‘owed’ just because they are drawing breath.

When I was a teenager, I would misguidedly give the ‘Pierre Trudeau’ middle finger salute when O Canada was played! My protest was not against my country, but against a government that did not stand for the ideals that I grew up with, those of freedom, democracy and respect for Her Majesty, the Queen of the Dominion.

I looked to the States as the principal ‘protector’ of the values of freedom and democracy and Trudeau as a communist threat to Canada. My distrust and dislike of the man was such that I chose to decline an opportunity to attend RMC (Royal Military College - Canada’s equivalent of West Point/Anapolis/USAFA) in Kingston, ON because I believed that if a shooting war broke out between the West and the USSR, Trudeau would side with the Soviets, against the West! Don’t misunderstand; in case of an American invasion, I would not have hesitated in fighting against Americans to defend my country, but I certainly was not prepared to shoot at Americans if we sided with the Soviets!

It is only since we voted Stephen Harper into office as Prime Minister and America voted Hussein Obama in as President, that I am now proud to be a Canadian and do not desire to be an American. I pray that the people of the US and Canada humble themselves and turn back to the Lord! Unfortunately, I think that will take a catastrophe that will make 9/11 look like a Saturday picnic.

If they do turn back to God, I believe that Mr. Harper will be re-elected and that Hussein and his ilk will be soon tossed out, and perhaps facing prison for treason. I also pray that the Democratic Party in the US and the Liberals in Canada return to their roots, rather than the quasi-socialists that many currently are.

Mr. Zimmerman is the one who should file civil rights charges here. He’s the “Cracker”. He’s the one who was labeled as the white Hispanic. He was called a “self described” Hispanic. Trevon was assiociated with the President’s gene pool.

I say “Make a mockery of these liberals. They’ve painted themselves into a corner. Let them keep digging their hole! Their hipocracy will become plain as day. And stuff. “

It doesn't matter. How long are the Feds going to investigate GZ? How long is he going to be monitored, his friends interviewed? How long is his entire life and activities be under a microscope by the DOJ in this “ongoing investigation” is what I want to know.

They already looked into this and found nothing, but the verdict doesn't go their way and they're investigating again? And for the millionth time where are the Republicans to say “stop or else we'll investigate the DOJ’s involvement in this case”
An American citizen has just been acquitted and was already investigated by the Feds. Case closed. Time for these childish, coddled, hissy fit throwing blacks deal with it, and move onto other things. It's over, let it go.
The sense of entitlement is mind boggling.

He was required to give up his passport as a bond condition.

Having been acquitted of the crime, all of those conditions are essentially immediately reversed. In theory.

“”10 Black teenagers are shot and killed every week in Chicago alone and Eric Holder’s inJustice department is going after George Zimmerman?””

If I was from a black family in Chicago who lost a child due to black violence, I’d really be ticked off that not one of those black teens murdered by other blacks, registers any concern in the media or by the race hustlers (you know who they are), or by politicians, or by the White House. Those killed don’t even warrant a yawn.

The FBI already conducted one investigation and concluded TM’s civil rights were not violated.

Given that George Zimmerman has been found not guilty, by a jury of his peers, this new investigation can’t possibly go anywhere, particularly since pertinent facts were withheld from the trial, but will surface in the new investigation: i.e. TM’s text messages, TM’s THC in his blood, etc.

Also, Mark O’Mara made it clear during his press conference that he is fully prepared to fight the Feds. and any others seeking to further harm George Zimmerman.

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.

Semantics question. If you want to call it a “new investigation” I suppose you could think of it that way.

I don’t... from the article, it looks like more of a review of existing evidence to see if federal prosecution is warranted (or possible — they can’t try him on murder or manslaughter, because he has been acquitted of those and there’s no double jeopardy).

I think they’re just blowing smoke to appease their race grievance friends. We’ll see.
