Thousands protest Zimmerman verdict as DoJ vows to restart hate crime inquiry
http://rt.com/usa/zimmerman-protests-trayvon-justice-090/ ^

Posted on 07/15/2013 5:33:42 AM PDT by kronos77

Thousands took to streets across the US on Sunday, as protests against the acquittal of George Zimmerman entered their second day. Zimmerman, a former neighborhood watch volunteer, shot and killed 17-year-old Trayvon Martin in 2012.

Follow RT's LIVE UPDATES on Zimmerman verdict fallout.

The Justice Department said Sunday that it will restart its investigation into last year’s killing to consider possible separate hate crime charges against George Zimmerman. The news follows huge public outcry and calls from civil rights leaders to reopen the inquiry.

"Experienced federal prosecutors will determine whether the evidence reveals a prosecutable violation of any of the limited federal criminal civil rights statutes within our jurisdiction...and whether federal prosecution is appropriate in accordance with the department's policy governing successive federal prosecution following a state trial,” a Justice Department spokesman said in a Sunday statement.

So, no legal result is valid as long as "protected individuals" are willing to riot.....

The DOJ will persecute Zimmerman regardless, like the DA facts will not matter.

After an exhaustive investigation the FBI concluded that “race played no part” in this incident. There nothing more to investigate and there is no basis for hate crime charges. I think Obama is just announcing that the Justice Department is “investigating” the filing of federal charges to buy time and let things settle down. I don’t think anything will come of it.

“Thousands took to the streets across the U.S.”

BFD. Notice the ferals are only rioting in big, liberal cities where guns are essentially banned. Try that in the more conservative climes of southern states and they’ll get a strong dose of justice, all right.

Dear God, going after a private citizen is despicable. I guess the DOJ just doesn’t have anything else to do - no guns to run south of the border or anything like that?

Obvious that the administration wanted the acquittal so as to spur this hatred even harder. They will “organize the Chaos” with protests that “pop” up. They will continue to make statements that fuel the anger...this is just starting in my opinion.

The FBI already cleared Zimmerman of any racial motive in the incident. The DoJ has no case.

How'd that work out for the DA?

The DOJ has even less evidence than the DA.

That's what I've been thinking. Law by mob does not end well. Why do they think mob law can work? ...because the criminals in this administration allow them to believe so, nay, encourage them to believe such.

I’ll bet the Obama administration is investigating Zimmerman’s background with as much scrutiny as any opposition candidate in an election. If Zimmerman has any “Paula Dean” moments in his past, or really, any dirt whatsoever, they’ll find it and use it to obtain a successful prosecution.

DOJ inquiry will come to nothing and the threats of civil charges as well.

They are the ones who fear litigation because the defense will at that time unleash the rest of what they know about the Scheme Team and Trayvon Martin and it won't be pretty, especially how on April 2nd 2012 while the state was interviewing one DeeDee, the FBI was interviewing another different one --

and they didn't know it??? except for the Scheme Team itself???

A Federal lawsuit would require the opening of those FBI files and how embarrassing will that be when it comes out.

The FBI can be Serino'd and Corey'd. In other words, fired from the case and replaced with someone that toes the line.

This is just democracy in action... the People demand justice, and the gov' will provide it. Worked in France - they celebrate it every year, yesterday.

They look to be largely led by white marxists.

People really need to study up on the tactics employed by Alinsky and Ayers. The people in the street are seldom the source of outrage. Its the quiet voices in the shadows that need to be eliminated.

The fix is in,boys and girls.The Department of Just Us,with Trayvon’s DC “dad” at the helm (in reality) had hoped that a jury of 6 Florida women would give GZ 30 years.But they're determined...so we can count on jury pool tainting of epic proportions now because,after all,the “First Son”,aged 11,has been wantonly gunned down by a cracker.

I didn't see them covering TEA party protests against Obamacare with anywhere near this kind of enthusiasm

So far I have been able to shut down several “justice for trayvon” threads on other sites by asking a simple question:

You look outside tonight after dark and see a 6'1 tall man walking around in your backyard- would you consider that ‘suspicious activity’?”

George needs to get out of obamaville as soon as possible. I was going to write the United States, but they expired November 6, 2012 of self inflicted voter wounds. If George is going to have a future, it will not be in obamaville.
I don’t know how he would leave or where he would, but I do know that if he remains in obamaville , his fate will be the same as the Jews that stayed in Germany in 1940. To wit: dead.

“I thought we were a nation of laws.”

We are, sort of. When travesties like the Obamacare and DOMA decisions are handed down, we are supposed to shut up and accept the result. When the slightest thing goes against the communists, the result is not final, and they can riot until the extract a price.

As Orwell said, “all animals are equal, but some are more equal than others.”

Maybe...maybe a few thousand all across the country. A few hundreds here, a few dozen there.

As to the DOJ, just what could we possible expect from the likes of the black liberationist and Marxist, Holder? He proved his "colors" when he refused to prosecute the blatant voter intimidation by the Black Panters in 2008.

Well, in the end, the proof is in this pudding, "NOT GUILTY!"

They had no evidence. The original DA and police knew it, the defense knew it...and this prosecutor and the DOJ all know it.

It was never about Zimmerman's guilt, because he never was.

It was all about the politics of race, corrupt politicians and race baiters trying to make something out of nothing there, and corrupt prosecutors looking to make a name for themselves.

ZIMMERMAN NOT GUILTY!
