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"
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!
