“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.
So what can we do about this? Contribute to his defense? It’s past time that freedom-loving Americans start standing together. United we stand.
EXACTLY what it looks like.
All these scoundrels who ganged up on Zimmerman now see what is coming their way and are running to the guys in Washington for protection or thinking that if they just get enough signatures on a petition — petition for what???
They are resorting to what they did 16 months ago thinking that it worked then it should work now. But none of that will help them this time.
This is WAY more than that. This is about the 2ndA and about freedom to protect ourselves against tyranny and about seeing just how far they can push before the masses rebel. Frog. Pot. Water.
Ditto to the Nth Degree...
The DOJ has solved the murders of all border agents, so now they’ll go after George.
Holder is a clown, and this is nothing but a fundraising tool.
PISS OFF Feds...........
Zimmerman should join Snowden and ask for asylum.
Federal case against Zimmerman would face obstacles
Not just that — he has rights as a citizen being accused of a crime and those rights were violated at the Martin family conclave in the mayor’s office.
Reminds me of the old saying: fanatacism consists in redoubling your efforts when you have forgotten your aim.
They wanted GZ to be tried in front of a jury. They got it. Just not the decision they wanted.
At some point 2 nations may be needed.
No, who said about winning it? They can resurrect the dead and create whole voters from computer programs.
We all knew this was coming. Obama saying “a jury has spoken” was just boilerplate.
Gotta placate Sharpton. Yes Al we’ll look into it - We’ll get back to you.
Holder will end up losing big if he does.
Fox - Zimmerman Not a Racist, FBI Report Says
This is the real Obama statement.
The other about “jury has spoken” was sleight of hand. Watch the other hand, which in that case was this one.
Preponderance of the evidence to show negligence is what one talking head said would be required. Then he said that Zimmerman “following” and “not identifying himself” would play into negligence.
My sense is that he did NOT get a chance to do those things because he was in his truck for the most part at night in the rain. When he did get out, he was just checking to see direction and that was what the dispatcher meant by following. We’re not talking about STALKING which is a repeated pattern of unwanted attention type following, and is the type of following that is illegal.
More than that, they won’t have the failure to have discovery and they will have the info about Martin’s fighting, burglary tools, drugs and paraphernalia, and his racist and sexist commentary.
O’Mara seemed to have a “bring it on” attitude yesterday.
The media is doing a great disservice in continuing to play their “child Trayvon stalked and murdered” meme. They are nuts and there is a reason they want this moment to be a racial moment. Wagging the dog, but I’m not sure the direction I should be looking.
I pretty much figured they would continue the race war. Disgusting.
Wise words i will pass on to my children. Thank you
THIS IS OUTRAGEOUS. THESE BASTARDS ALREADY DID THIS AND CLEARED HIM.
THIS IS TOTAL HARASSMENT. Where are the Republicans? Oh yea..never mind about them hiding under the bed.
I believe the proper terminology calls it "criminal profiling".
For everyone who keeps saying GZ needs to leave the country... WHY?
He shouldn’t have to leave the country to get away from a Dictator! The friggin Dictator and his corrupt DOJ need to stop acting like we have no rights and they’re our Overlords!
What will THAT solve if he leaves? First Zimmerman leaves, then Joe leaves, then Bill leaves, then Bob leaves, and pretty soon they’re coming for you and you have to leave.
NO ONE should be leaving — WE ALL should be standing up for him. This should be the pivotal moment when we decide that enough is enough, and we’ll help defend our fellow brother — black or white or yellow or red — who is being railroaded by this Kenyan foreigner and his Chicago mob who have turned the GOPe into a bunch of sad, panty-waisted, lilly-livered, scum-sucking, pea-brained amoebas!!
Who cares! Who wants to be “Under investigation” for God knows how long by the Federal government.
The real investigation should be of Holder and the DOJ and Angela Corey.
They found nothing. But that was BEFORE the ‘not guilty’ verdict. A mob forced an arrest and trial. Now that same mob is going to try to force a federal trial.
I fully agree.
Another poster stated (and I’m so sorry, I lost my place and I’m not sure who posted it) that we should protect Zimmerman the way we would protect the Constitution, as in doing so we are essentially protecting both.
Listening to JJ on FOX. Aaaarrrrrg!
He is so stupid. How did he ever become a leader ?
Think it was Arthel who did the interview. When she corrected him that Z wasn’t white but Hispanic he blink blink blinked and finally spit out a nonsensical utterance.
[How do you turn this into a civil rights case without - in effect - placing Zimmerman under double jeopardy?]
Well, first you get a half-white(Sabbatean?) / half-Kenyan 100% Communist Useful Idiot an Ivy League edumacation so he can call himself a “Constitutional Professor”.
Then the Weathermen tell the “professor” which way the wind should blow...
The media YET AGAIN pushing this nonsense since last night.
Beating the drum. The pigs on the left never stop..they never retreat.
Not only that, the Ukraine girls really knock me out, they leave the West behind.
Plus, Russia has a flat tax and a low (or no) business tax.
Nonsense. We need to stand up against this BS and not just fold and leave.
The DOJ started it even before the verdict:
Outraged NAACP Wants Feds to Prosecute Zimmerman (civil rights probe opened by DOJ)
“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 NAACP Wants Feds to Prosecute Zimmerman (civil rights probe opened by DOJ)
Looks like we should start referring to DOJ as DOJACP (Department of Justice for the Advancement of Colored People).
That's why I think that bright and early tomorrow morning the schemers and their prosecution team will be given no quarter and no room to breathe as shtf from every quarter.
Like I;ve said countless times, Holder will do everything to prosecute him. This regime is truly evil.
Who didn’t see this coming?
No, I’ve met some Ukraine girls, they actually were pretty hot.
Even if no charges are filed, Zimmerman will have a terrible time getting a job and probably will have to leave Florida to start over. What was done to him is beyond disgusting.
So if GZ is somehow re-arrested, charged and incarcerated for .... something.... I’ll expect to see you leading the way to break him out. Is that it?
From a theorectical POV, I agree with you. But if I was GZ, after what I just went thru, you think I’d be sitting around hoping some Constitutional Cavalry would be coming to my rescue?
