Skip to comments.Zimmerman civil rights violations ruling coming soon? Holder hints Trayvon murder decision coming
Posted on 03/26/2014 7:00:40 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet
U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder strongly hinted on Thursday that the government will soon determine if George Zimmerman will face federal civil rights charges in the 2012 killing of Trayvon Martin.
A self-appointed neighborhood watch patrolman, Zimmerman was acquitted by a Florida jury of murder charges last year and soon thereafter the federal government announced that the Justice Department would be probing the case for any civil rights violations that might have occurred.
The 17-year-old Martin was unarmed and just steps away from the doorsteps of his father's gated community home when Zimmerman ignored a police dispatcher's stern advice to cease with following the teen, whom he later admitted he thought looked suspicious because he was wearing a hoodie.
"We are still in the process of doing the kinds of investigative things and analysis that are necessary before we can make the determination," Holder told MyNews13.com. "So that matter's ongoing."
In a video released just last week, Zimmerman claimed he now wants to attend law school and perhaps become a civil right attorney, even though since being acquitted he's and several run-ins with police, including being arrested on domestic violence charges.
Think George Zimmerman should face civil right charges? "Tell us @SportsWN"
He only has to look at Louisville, KY to see what this asininity has encouraged already.
There’s nothing I know of in the case that would make such a thing stick in any sane court. However courts are not all sane any more.
He really is an effin retard.
Probably will end up sharing a cell with OJ.
The oppinion of the majority of the people in this country just don’t seem to matter anymore.
This is a pant-load.
Sounds like he’s doing a lot of arm twisting.
oh no, please God, I just realized that he could schedule a trial to run around the same time as the November elections that can whip up the base.
Do it, holder. Might inspire a few folks to express themselves directly on your incompetence and racism.
According to BOR that was just a bunch of “teens.”
Zimmerman’s attorneys should introduce the myriad instances of feral urban yutes playing “knockout” as evidence, along with Trayvon’s history of criminality and say “Hey Eric, it was justified. Tell your people to stop behaving like animals and we’ll all be better off for it. It wasn’t George’s fault that Trayvon chose to be a piece of garbage and live the life of a criminal.”
If Holder goes after Zimmerman it’ll be open season on taking out the trash all across this land. Preemptive glock-out to stop the knock-out.
Get Whitey Holder is racist #1.
Apparently, GZ has no civil rights.
Said like a real hick (salute to hicks)
Someone oughtta take out a full page ad in the Washington Times if the ComPost won’t take it.
We aren’t going to worry about the sensibilities of a career criminal... Tray was not innocent.
This is beyond absurd.
Eric Holder is the most politically driven AG in history by far.
And with regard to civil rights, he only cares about “his people”.
His people continue to play knockout king and he does zero, just like his boss.
I pray he goes to prison one day.
Hicks are tired of being nagged, too?
I suppose. Nagging is an offensive action.
The BS and lies never end.
It would be awfully hard to get all the pieces in place in only six months. Remember, Zimmerman’s lawyers are well aware of the politics behind such an action and they would make it a point to delay things nicely. Lots of options to do so, too.
“when Zimmerman ignored a police dispatcher’s stern advice to cease with following the teen”
The article is pure BS. But on the other hand, Holder’s InJustice Department is not bound by the rule of law. They make up the rules as they go along, for not.
Holder’s own criminal past will eventually devour him. Just wait.
Well hell. Even Alan Grayson has been involved with domestic violence charges.
If he MUST lie, let him. Let the lies besmirch him.
Holder has gotten away with some incredible stuff, including what amount to serious crimes. So there’s no saying what he might decide to do.
He and Obama may think it would be a good way to stir up the base.
If they do, the press can be counted on to play all the usual race cards. And the GOPe can be counted on to go along with it all, for fear of losing their 9% of the black vote.
Stalinist Show Trial.
Civil rights violations? What “civil right” did Skittles have to start beating the crap out of another person?
What civil rights did Zimmerman violate? Killing this punk who was trying to bash his head in without cause? Zimmerman was watching this punk because he was acting suspicious and the complex has had problems with burglaries. Zimmerman was attacked viciously.
So in your world, he doesn’t have the right to go to the school of his choice or determine his own vocation? Do you live in America?
I retire now, have a good night.
Zimm violated Tray’s right to have a fear-free criminal mind, by standing there looking. Looking! The audacity!
They need something to rally the sycophants, things haven’t been going real well lately.
The media still refuses to report accurately
Of course not. George is a White-Hispanic!
Yep. Every sentence is a load of crap.
But if you read the comments, you'll see that almost nobody is reading the article.
It would be a galvanizing event for pro 2nd amendment types. I’ve read about those people.
Sure he does.
If he was smart though, he would keep a low profile.
I think he is a moron, and his shooting of the untermensch Martin, while justified, was the result of the actions a low IQ individual like GZ, which he continues to demonstrate every chance he gets.
I wouldn't bet the farm on this idiot passing the bar exam either.
His profile does not matter. Holder is a racist who is determined to convict him no matter what. We are a totalitarian dictatorship now. Stop blaming the victim!
I wonder if this will be argued on the facts or some social justice bullshit that is spewed by that nagger that is on PMSNBC at six o’clock.
I almost wish he was that stupid.
Well, he IS actually pretty stupid. I guess he wants Obama’s approval ratings to sink down into the 20s.
Stern advice? That’s a new interpretation. Do dispatchers have a whole spectrum of advice from mild to stern to really, really stern?
BTW, based on the court evidence and Trayvon’s supposed girl friend’s statement on the Piers Morgan show, it was Trayvon who ultimately stalked and confronted Zimmerman.
So apparently a police dispatcher’s stern advice (which wasn’t stern, nor was it a cease order) is advice that MUST be taken, or you will face federal persecution from Mr. Eric the Black.
Bingo - this is all about the election and turning out the base. Of course, Putin could put a damper on turn out if-when he moves on Ukraine. If Obama attempts to get aggressive with Putin, the left won’t turn out.
And the most politically connected. His first appointment within the Department of justice was by Republicans , albeit NYC GOPers, during the Reagan Administration. He is truly a consigliere and represents K Street and Wall Street to the Mahdi while pimping race hatred. He is a truly sinister man. Just watch his very quiet composed iciness when he is not speaking. He is like some minion of Satan watching and waiting to do his master's bidding.
The victims down in Victimville are *still* beating this “unarmed” nonsense to death!
Geez, how about the babies killed or left brain damaged because they were violently shaken by their inconvenienced sperm donor or mommy’s deadbeat boyfriend? Unarmed, all!
I wonder if we could persuade some of the feral yootes in the DC area to ‘flashmob’ the chief criminal Holder?
Everything I read and saw from legal expert types during and immediately after the Zimmerman trial is that a Civil Rights trial would be a non-starter even if Zimmerman had been convicted during the murder/manslaughter trial.
So, if Holder does pursue this route, I don’t see it accomplishing anything but maybe keeping a few political promises to “seek justice” on behalf of Martin.
Of course, I am not an attorney, and I have been wrong before...
