DOJ Wonít Give Back Zimmermanís Gun
PJ Tatler ^ | July 18, 2013 | Bryan Preston

Let’s step back and take a long, hard look at what Eric Holder’s 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 jury’s verdict, Holder’s 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? It’s extremely unlikely that they do.

Holder’s 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 can’t have it.....

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’ Zimmerman’s gun because they were unable to track it (Fast & Furious).

I second that.

The Republicans remain silent and cowering on the outrageous persecution of GZ by this racist pig Holder.

Yep.

Then that is what should be done.

It is time to bring these harpies to a halt.

I once had a firearm confiscated unlawfully by LEO.

It took a lawsuit and more than a year to get it back just days before they were going to cut it up.

"That is the most valuable Kel Tec PF-9 in history."

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?

If anyone in this matter should be in jail and not trusted with a gun, it is Holder.

It’s apparent to anyone paying attention that the NSA spying uncovered a lot of dirt on a lot of republican politicians.

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.

Actually 5th Amendment. And it's multiple felonies: 18 USC 241 and 18 USC 242.

I don’t think Zimmerman should get his gun back, but that is the state of Florida’s call.

They never gave me back mine after my husband shot himself with it.

I guess that is how FL does things.

I suppose i could demand it back, but I have a doggie whom I love.

It’s not really Florida, per se, who is doing this, they are taking orders from the US Attorney General.

Uhmmm, why shouldn’t he get his lawful property, that he is legally entitled to, back from the state? Believe me, I’m ALL EARS on this one.
