Posted on 07/18/2013 5:53:34 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet
Lets step back and take a long, hard look at what Eric Holders Justice Department is doing right now.
George Zimmerman was acquitted in the shooting of Trayvon Martin. He has no further business in court with the state of Florida and is a free man.
Rather than accept the jurys verdict, Holders DOJ convened a conference call with several left-wing groups to plot a course to continue harassing Zimmerman. With FBI agents on the call, Holder sought information from those groups to help build a case.
Do those groups know Zimmerman or have any personal knowledge of the case that was not presented in the trial? Its extremely unlikely that they do.
Holders DOJ is also releasing an email address to which people are being exhorted to send tips about George Zimmerman, again, to build a case against him.
Did George Zimmerman rob a bank? Did he shoot an airplane out of the sky? Did he bring a building down?
No. He was acquitted by a jury in a fair court trial.
But the United States Department of Justice is focusing on this one man, who has been put through due process and acquitted in a court of law.
Today, we learn that the United States Department of Justice is ordering the state of Florida to break its own law.
The state case against Zimmerman is over. He won. He is entitled under Florida law to assume custody of any of his property that the state seized in the process of prosecuting him.
Holder says no, he cant have it.....

Florida officials should ignore the racist DOJ, return the law abiding citizen his gun and dispose of the evidence of the trial.
After he ends up owning NBC (for editing the 911 call) and the prosecutor (for calling him a murderer after acquittal) he could go after the DOJ in a Fifth Amendment takings case.
The DOJ doesn’t have his gun, so they can’t keep it or return it. They can only try to make Florida do what Holder wants.
I suspect he would unabashedly answer in the affirmative.
Put him in Prison and toss the key away.
The Byzantine Empire fell when the citizens no longer thought it was worth saving...
I will actively discourage my children from following my footsteps into the armed services. Somebody is going to kick this rotten stump over and I won’t give a damn.
What, did Eric already sell it to a drug outfit in Mexico?
This man is a menace.
It’s plainly stated and simple, Eric Holder and Barry Sotero are both racist pieces of sh#t grasping at straws to make their pitiful existence relevant. Here’s a little hint . . . your relevancy is not worth a fart in a windstorm.
Florida should tell Eric WithHolder that they ‘lost’ Zimmerman’s gun because they were unable to track it (Fast & Furious).
A lawless and criminal government.
At what point does the Battle of Athens, Part II happen?
The gun’s all fine and dandy - Zimmerman can only get a new one.
The question is, was a similar order given to Martin’s hometown police force? The one that has custody of the allegedly burgled items found in his backpack.
Unlike the gun (which is just adding insult to injury), those a really FRIKKING BIG DEAL. Because if the rightful owner (still don’t know whether she’s been notified, right) tries to identify and claim them, suddenly there’s a nice big juicy piece of evidence supporting the notion that Martin really was casing Zimmerman’s neighborhood in the 45 minutes it took for him to walk the .8 miles from the 7-11 to the house he was staying in.
If Martin had survived the fight he instigated, he could of and should of been charged with attempted murder.
Holder is an enemy of our Nation.
We should all chip in and buy Zimmerman a gun if they do this.
Let’s see if Gov. Scott, who started this mess, will step up for the rule of law.
That is the most valuable Kel Tec PF-9 in history.
And since Scott is their apparent bitch boy do you think GZ will ever get it back?
I have to take time to mention that because, in my opinion, not only in Mississippi and Alabama, but right here in New York City, you and I can best learn how to get real freedom by studying how Kenyatta brought it to his people in Kenya, and how Odinga helped him, and the excellent job that was done by the Mau Mau freedom fighters. In fact, that’s what we need in Mississippi. In Mississippi we need a Mau Mau. In Alabama we need a Mau Mau. In Georgia we need a Mau Mau. Right here in Harlem, in New York City, we need a Mau Mau.

Eric Holder: What happens when a sloth slowly tender loves a turtle.
George will soon have enough money to SUE their ASS and WIN!
The Republicans remain silent and cowering on the outrageous persecution of GZ by this racist pig Holder.
I am willing to donate to hire George’s lawyer, in order to sue for him to get A. A speedy charge if one is forthcoming, and B. To get his shootin’ iron back.
I care much less about the specific gun, I am concerned about his concealed carry permit. Has this been restored?
George may need it in the future. He can probably get another gun—many would contribute toward the cost.
If the governor of Florida wants to save the taxpayers of the state some money defending a against a law suit he will lose, he should override the racists sitting in as president and attorney general.
Meanwhile Zimmerman can just do a face to face buy from a private owner in the state.
He is not a convicted felon so it’s perfectly legal and no paperwork is required.
I have definitely had enough of these corrupt racist bastards.
Question to all:
This assertion of federal over state authority seems to me to have the potential of becoming a major constitutional crises.
Am I over-reacting?
Yah, great, two Nazis in office.
This about where we are, Ma’am.
Laws are being used to harass law abiding citizens and those same laws are being ignored when it comes to organized racists openly soliciting murder.
The Black Panthers are racist terrorists, and they are being allowed to operate with impunity by our racist government.
Holder has sequestered the evidence from the trial. That gives him an opportunity to tweak it and add in some more useful evidence that he has his Creativity Department working on even now.
I think this was one step too far, for this bunch.
It has taken a second Obama term, several months of trial, and an acquittal.
All of which was ... agreed to by Americans.
This was a step too far. I think Obama lost his welcome.
Not that I’m sad, but I think so. It is all downhill from here.
Just my .02.
The DOJ has no authority to order the gun “held.” If they want it they need to go to Federal District Court to get a warrant, based upon sworn evidence of probable cause, to seize it. I believe the Florida authorities are under no obligation to honor a Justice Department request. If Zimmerman demands the return of his gun, and the Florida authorities refuse to comply, they have violated his 14th Amendment rights.
Does the DOJ have the authority to do this? Isn’t this a State jurisdictional issue?
This looks like a job for—O’Maraman! Go get ‘em stud.
Betcha Ricky Holder has already run that beauty to Mexico.
every time I see Holder’s name I think the same thing
Why have there been no calls for his resignation? why hasn’t he been impeached? What the frick is he still doing there?
Florida should tell Eric WithHolder that they lost Zimmermans gun because they were unable to track it (Fast & Furious).
I second that.
Then that is what should be done.
It is time to bring these harpies to a halt.
It took a lawsuit and more than a year to get it back just days before they were going to cut it up.
It's normally a $300 gun, but I wouldn't be amazed by anything it might bring at auction.
It's obviously the most costly KelTec PF-9 in history, considering Zimmerman's legal bills.
so a law abidding US citizen cannot have his own gun...
yet the same dept will give away automatic weapons to Mexican drug dealers.
why are we still tolerating these people? why aren’t they arrested?
George can get another gun...
does he have his passport back yet
theres no legal reason to keep it any longer...
If anyone in this matter should be in jail and not trusted with a gun, it is Holder.
