WWJ-TV ^ | July 23, 2013

It’s been almost two weeks since the acquittal of George Zimmerman in the shooting death of Trayvon Martin in Florida. Now, the Detroit City Council is adding its voice to a call for a federal investigation.

Council members unanimously passed a resolution Tuesday calling for the U.S. Department of Justice to look into the case for possible civil rights charges.

Zimmerman, a neighborhood watchman, was acquitted of murder charges in Martin’s death on July 13.

WWJ Newsradio 950 Stephanie Davis reports that Council’s resolution was unanimously passed the resolution....

The City Council,no doubt,had to cut that meeting short so they could run to the bank to make sure that their paychecks cleared.

I would have thought that Detriot had problems enough of their own without inserting their proven wisdom into a local issue 1,000 miles from home.

But then, that’s just me.

Any mention of the “Detroit City Council” should include “bankrupt” as a modifier.

Loud mouths telegraphing their loyalties to Obama's purse.

They've destroyed Detroit, now it's time to become useful destroying other places. That's what Obama calls community organizing.

With all of the problems Detroit has, why are they spending time on an issue which they have no control over, and no authority to do anything about anyway????

But if they make enough hate Whitey/scare Whitey noises, that will induce the Federal government to send them money, they hope. (Detroit’s bankruptcy is all due to white racism.) It’s worked in the past.

Detriot sounds right to me.

Zimmerman should spend the next 5 years suing the pants off the MSM and racebaiters like Detriot’s council and Jesse Jackson, etc. He obviously will get sued anyways by TMartin’s family, so... since life gave him lemons he should make lemonade.

The entire Detroit City Council should be doing 15 to life in prison.

For the same reason the circuit court judge said, “He is watching.” as if she were Kruschev directing Hero of the People Vasily Zaitzev’s eyes to the giant print of Stalin:
They’re hoping Big Bro’ will send a few semis full of cash Motown way. It’s like living in Uganda, or some south-of-the-border s***-hole, isn’t it?

168 shootings in Detroit from 5/23/13 to 7/23/13 and they’re worried about 1 shooting in Florida! These people are totally screwed up! No wonder Detroit is bankrupt and in the disaster it is....

The Justice Department intervening in a State Case like this is a Civil Rights Violation.

God is not amused.

The Black Ku Klux Klan racism is just insane...

Their city is bankrupt...and they are more worried about a Hispanic man who lawfully defended himself from a violent potential gang banger

The Hate is just so unreal

I am tempted to say something like “dyed-in-the-wool” liberals, but I am sure the PC Crowd would deem that racist. So in anticipation of that, I give not a single niggardly fig!

Many Neigborhood Watch areas consist of modest dwellings including the one Zimmerman was a “watch captain in are comprized of single dwelling units or as in Zimmermans case townhouses.His was a mini US melting pot which includes a number of black families which banded together and set up patrols to protect their area.. In this case they were struggling with single and groups of young blacks from other “hoods” on the prowl., In some instances armed, preying on homeowners in his area..Watch activities are closely co-ordinated with local police departments and follow very set protocols. Most conservative hosts demonstrate their ignorance.and are rendering no futhur information then their listeners get from MSM .thus allowing the MSM to set an agenda of distraction from this regimes history of corruption and scandal..

http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/3043817/posts

Usually such neighborhood watch areas are posted with a window or garden sign announcing that fact and those patrols will observe any one; black,white, green, or blue . If the area is “gated”even stop and question them. .When such an area is “gated” public right of way is restricted to the entrances and exits to the area.. .That fact and the area wasn’t even divulged by any of the so called media because it wouldn’t fit their agenda if true journalisim existed, because it couldn’t support any racial assertion or questioning of movement. ..

It might even explain Zimmerman’s action taken during his surveilance of Martin because this watch volunteer got out of his car and continued his observation on foot because he lost sight of Martin. In many watch areas that’s done frequently when the subject disappears from view they may leave their vehicle and continue surveilance on foot.. ....

According to the testimony there was an exchange after which as Zimmerman was going back to his vehicle Martin attacked him and was severly beating him to the extent he feared for his life. To put it bluntly Saint Trayvon was a smart ass punk who attacked a guy with a gun and got killed in the struggle over it when he had the guy on the ground.beating the hell out of him..

Obama in his latest attempt threw more gas on the fire by portraying Saint Trayvon as what he was, an irreponsible pot head and subsequently found to be a petty thief ..That explains Bengahazi, where he left a top American diplomat and his aides die and the rest of his yet uninvestigated other scandals Obama hopes his diatribes will hide. .

Even after learning the shooter was a staunch Obama supporter, not Jewish, (very quickly dismissed ?) and a dark skinned “hispanic”. Obama did nothing to curtail the hyperbole or tone down his edict creating this as a white racist episode. Obama the boss of bosses and gets all the information about anybody ignored Zimmerman’s defence of a homeless black maltreated by a local police officer which resulted in the disciplining of the offending officer which Zimmerman fearlessly waged a campaign for and got.. .

The socialists controlling the media propaganda machine oblidged.. They began claiming the exclusive “gated” neighborhood watch captain was a “white hispanic” . Used a picture of a 12 year old Martin instead of the 6 foot 165 pound person he was vs the smaller 140 pound lttle fatty neighborhood watch captain. Worse yet allowed his US Attorney General to use questionable activities to promote a show trial and ignored using a threat of prosecution to black militant groups threatening the watch captain’s life.

Do not confuse todays politicians and their ahearants in the press and academia as followers of “Liberalism”. . These are die hard God denying I’m right you’re wrong socialists incapable of independent thinking running todays media.. Devising political campaigns of lies and manipulated inflamatory languange disguised as “news or reliable information” designed to destroy any opponent or group to what is edict-ed by their leader. You must wind up goose-stepping in unison protecting the collective otherwise we will through the use of the government we control step on you and squash you like some insect..

Why is this being done ? Who accompained Obama on his many trips around the world at taxpayer expence ? Were they the heavy hitters or their friends holding the president’s hand ? Seems like that could be considered pay back at US taxpayer expence. Isn’t that an impeachable offense ? Now if somebody even suggests impeachment. What better way to discourage that by organizing the base for riots in the streets ?

Until the quashers are quashed this will continue..
