AG Holder: if evidence in Trayvon Martin case warrants, Justice Department will act
Yahoo! News ^ | April 11, 2012 | Pete Yost, Suzanne Gamboa

WASHINGTON - Attorney General Eric Holder says the Justice Department will take appropriate action in the Trayvon Martin case if it finds evidence that a federal criminal civil rights crime has been committed.

The attorney general made the comment in an appearance Wednesday before a civil rights organization founded by the Rev. Al Sharpton.

Divide and conquer! This issue can be used in the Hispanic Community to create division with the blacks and thus hurt O’Bummer’s voter strategy. Just like Elian Gonzalas could have hurt Clinton if used as an issue. Look at the heat the Castro supporting baseball coach got recently.

The number for the house judiciary committee is

202 225-3951

I asked the girl who answered if the judiciary committee is going to look into why the justice department isn’t looking into the panthers group that put a bounty on the head of Zimmerman. I told her they should investigate why the department of justice isn’t charging the panthers for the bounty and for their racial rhetoric.

Call Chuck Grassley’s senate office.

Call Jeff Sessions senate office.

Both of these have shown willingness to severely question Holder.

Both are Judiciary members, I believe.

Somebody needs to open their mouths about the dead or alive bounty, meanwhile Holder is threatening civil rights charges against Zimmerman and ignoring the Black Panthers threatening that the blood of whites needs to run in the streets.

That even goes beyond the bounty.

Federal law is not the controlling legal authority and holder can go **** himself!

Zimmerman has a wife and kids, does he not?

He might be thinking of how to get himself and them away from danger, rather than thinking of killing himself.

One would hope.

The term Hispanic is misleading to the point of being deceptive. An ethnic German from Argentina or Chile is Hispanic as is my ancestor, a Mayo Indian from Sonora, Mexico. Hispanics I know usually refer to their country of orign unless they are hopelessly PC. Americans of Mexican ancestry that I know claim Spanish only blood. So, yeah, you can have a “White Hispanic”.

Let's see NPR said, "New Black Panther Party Offers $10K Bounty For George ZImmerman" ... When a leader was asked if he was inciting violence, he said, "An eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth."

How does Eric Holder feel about the New Black Panther Party, anyway?

WSJ says, "Eric Holder's People"

His behavior appears to be erratic. That’s all I am saying. I don’t think I’d handle that kind of pressure any better.

Of course, Eric "The Black Racist" Holder will ignore the Black "The New KKK" Panther's illegal bounty:

A federal criminal civil rights issue? For Blacks or Hispanics? Which protected class gets no consideration?

Waco.

Holder will have his “Justice Scalp.”

I’m glad I’m not Zimmerman, but if I were him I would wait to see if local charges are filed. If so, off to trial. If not, off to....Poland or something.

In that situation my behavior would appear erratic, too.

He has more than himself to consider, and suicide is a self-centered act, was my thought.

He needs a plan for his family’s safety, no matter what the lawyers say or the prosecutor says, or how erratic he appears.

I pray he has a plan and acts on it.

>They may just push this Zimmerman lynching a step too far. There is a point where patience runs out on our side.<

Amen to that! That’s exactly how I feel. They keep pushing for a race war. What they gonna do when they get their wish? These idiots need to look at census data and recognize they are vastly out numbered!

Senator Grassley 202 224-3744 or 224-1308

Senator Sessions 202 224-4124

You’re right. What a good suggestion. The people who answered the telephones in both offices were very articulate and informed about the issue.

Justice Department prosecution flowchart:

Is there evidence, yes?
Is perp white, prosecute
Is perp black, dismiss charges.

Is there evidence, no?
Is perp white, prosecute
Is perp black, launch investigation into racial profiling.

Thank you. I tried Mr. Laughman but apparently he is out for lunch. I’ll try Ms. McDowney later this afternoon.

It is the funniest thing I have seen in a long time. It’s a black comedian mocking blacks for focusing on Zimmerman and not caring about all the black on black crime.

Zo is not a comedian. He is serious. He has been doing YouTube videos since 2008 or so and does an excellent job of illustrating the hypocrisies of the "Afro-Centrist Community". He gets called an Uncle Tom all the time. He is not an Obama voter. ;-)

The video you linked to is Pajamas Media but Zo has his own YouTube channel and a website called Machosauce Productions.

because she is going to decline prosecution. ..................................... If there is enough evidence,in favor of Zimmerman, what will Mrs Martin do next? The printed hoodies business will reduce her trademark income.

He already did.
He’s allowed the Black Panthers lynch mob to put a bounty on his head.

Obama wants the election to be about race and class warfare. That is his only chance to win.

In realspeak that translates as: “Unless the state courts convict this guy of murdering one of ‘my people’, and sentence him to death or life without parole, DOJ will get the desired result. Unless of course some public minded citizen collects the Black Panthers’ bounty, with the knowledge that all will be forgiven”.

“The reason Angela Corey is waiting until Friday afternoon to hold a press conference on the Zimmerman case”

Clarification, yesterday she announced she would release information within 72 hrs. I think she’ll make the announcement tomorrow, not on Friday.

If GZ has half the composure of his brother that appeared on CNN then he'll be fine. On Monday, GZ called a neighbor.

"Of course he's going through some fluctuations in his life right now, but I can assure you that he was, once again, lucid, concise and clear. He wanted to share with the public that he called me."

Glad to hear it.

George is the first target of Ubama's campaign to disarm non-Eric Holder's people.

If Ubama gets a second term, I predict that one of his first acts will be to unilaterally sign the United Nations Small Arms Treaty.

Yes, I know he needs Congress's approval, but separation of powers does not seem to apply to him.

The City of Sanford and the state of Florida should turn over 1% of the documents in the case, black out 80% of those and make excuses for a year about turning over the rest.

IOWs pull "a Holder" on 'em.

Yesterday was Tuesday.

Wednesday would be 24 hours.

Thursday would be 48 hours.

Friday would be 72 hours.
