Holder isn’t going to charge him.

He'll charge him if instructed so to do.The order will be given if Osama Obama feels that he might benefit in any way.This kind of situation is covered in pages 225-232 of "Rules For Radicals".

It’s an abuse of power for Holder to keep this “investigation” open. There is nothing there. I hope GZ can take some legal action to force Holder to put up or drop it.

None of those sons of b’s in Washington are going to do anything to Holder. Those politicians are only interested in keeping their jobs, their pensions, and all the perks associated with their offices.

Why hasn`t a investigative reporter looked into Trayvon Martin`s background? Get to the bottom of his fighting skills, and all the stuff that the court would not allow in evidence?

Why is he not in Peru?

Peru? No No NO!

Joren van der Sloot is imprisoned in Peru. Let's not give the Left the opportunity to equate the two, even in location only.

Right, then, ehrmmm... I'm no trevvan martin supporter, but I am having some difficulty understanding what point you are attempting to make by continually posting the pic of (allegedly) martin holding a fake pistol. That he was a wannabe gangbanger and deserving of no sympathy is a given, but that he posts pics of a (fake) 'semi-' is hardly a reason to condemn someone.

I have better pics than that, truth be told.

It was nice not hearing from the two idiots Trayvon and Zimmerman. Damn it just had to end and another story appears. Yuk. I can’t wait until these two are never heard of ever again.

Holder wouldn’t be going for a murder charge, but civil rights violations. It’s evil, but it’s not double jeopardy.

It's not only double jeopardy, it's the very definition of tyranny as experienced by the Founding Fathers.

King George and his thugs didn't have enough brass to lie bald-faced about what they were up to when they went after their American colonial enemies.

The criminal Holder can call his "charges" against Zimmerman what he likes, but the fact remains that in Police State America, you can find a felony charge to pin on a peasant all day, every day:

Three Felonies a Day: How the Feds Target the Innocent

The average professional in this country wakes up in the morning, goes to work, comes home, eats dinner, and then goes to sleep, unaware that he or she has likely committed several federal crimes that day. Why? The answer lies in the very nature of modern federal criminal laws, which have not only exploded in number, but, along with countless regulatory provisions, have also become impossibly broad and vague. In Three Felonies a Day, Harvey A. Silverglate reveals how the federal criminal justice system has become dangerously disconnected from common law traditions of due process and fair notice of the law's expectations, enabling prosecutors to pin arguable federal crimes on any one of us, for even the most seemingly innocuous behavior.The dangers spelled out in Three Felonies a Day do not apply solely to''white collar criminals,'' state and local politicians, and professionals. No social class or profession is safe from this troubling form of social control by the executive branch, and nothing less than the continued functioning and integrity of our constitutional democracy hang in the balance.

I, for one, am sick of the swaggering, snide posturing of The King's Men and their little jackboot police state.

Could be even worse, could be grounds for any American who so much as politely critiques someone from a special interest group having their lives turned upside down, if they are lucky, on any kind of civil rights charge the feds can come up with. And charging ordinary Americans with whatever crime they can think of is one area where the feds, particularly nowadays, lead the way in innovation.

There is no basis for any charge. Zimmerman was never a racist and his prior life showed he was pro helping blacks.

He went to the prom itch a black girl. Tutored black children. Voted democrat often I am sure.

the goal here is to keep harassing and “punishing” GZ who was acquitted.

Beg to differ.

The goal here is to keep the ethnic low information voters hopeful and riled-up. No chance of federal charges and everybody else knows it.

Double jeopardy ? Please

Bush senior started this crap when he had the Feds try the cops who were aquitted on the Rodney King trial for “Violating Kings civil rights”.

A different charge.

I understand that. In intent it still amounts to the same thing. It boils down to a political leader attempting to appease the masses for political purposes by punishing the alleged perpetrator when one method fails to do the trick. In King’s case, I agree; the officers did violate his civil rights. They used excessive force no doubt, however had King pulled over immediately when they first hit their lights it probably wouldn’t have happened. In Zimmerman’s case I don’t see any grounds for filing the charges (or tort violation). Its a completely different scenario.

What GZ needs to do is sue the family of the Martin as Martin was still a minor when he attempted to murder Zimmerman. They want to bust his balls and bring this to civil rights charges all because he had the audacity to defend his life? Then fine, sue them back for all the hell he’s gone through not to mention he almost losing his life when their gangsta son ambushed and attempted to kill him.

Did you leave “sarc” off at the end of your post? The picture of the “fake” pistol he posted had, in the background, a loaded magazine for the pistol. I suppose that was fake also?

You’re right.

For the American people have a limit. And while at first there were open minds across the country as regards Zimmerman and Trayvon....the trial is done.

To charge that man again for a trumped up federal charge will infuriate the citizenry of this country.

Not going to happen. And the WORST Attorney General this country has ever had really needs to shut up.

You may be able to leave without a passport, but you may not be able to enter another country without one. Since Zimmerman was born an American, there’s no guarantee that he could stay in Peru. I don’t know the laws, but Peru is Peru and not America.

From Wikipedia:

Those children born overseas to Peruvian mothers or fathers who were not registered before reaching 18 years of age can acquire Peruvian nationality by choice if:

Foreigners can also acquire Peruvian nationality, including:

You don't need a passport to leave the US.Having left the country a number of times,including as recently as two months ago,I've never had to show a passport to a US government official on exiting.Just last September I crossed into Canada,by foot,and the only government official I encountered was a Canadian Immigration/Customs officer.

Federal laws regarding violations of certain people’s civil rights are kept on the books for the sole purpose of getting around double jeopardy when the federal government wishes to do so.

I hear what you’re saying but I’m looking at his record. I know a lot of things are supposed to be “by the book” but he keeps findng ways to circumvent them. Who would have ever thought Justice Roberts would have declared the Affordable Healthcare Act legal and a tax 5 years ago before it passed. Most didn’t but he found a way around that. I think removing Reid would definitely hinder his efforts at continuing his current mission to destroy the foundations of American society. Until you do that he will stay in power IMO.

I guess holder is talking about a federal civil rights violation. The federal government’s position would be that Zimmerman only defended himself from an attack because the attacker is black, therefore it is a civil rights case.

Maybe he should emigrate to a more free society...Russia, China, Cuba...somewhere offering less corruption and less of a Police State.

Or he can stay here in the USSA.
