Skip to comments.Outraged NAACP Wants Feds to Prosecute Zimmerman (civil rights probe opened by DOJ)
Posted on 07/14/2013 8:30:13 AM PDT by Innovative
"We are outraged and heartbroken over today's verdict," NAACP President Benjamin Jealous said in a statement.
"We will pursue civil rights charges with the Department of Justice, we will continue to fight for the removal of Stand Your Ground laws in every state, and we will not rest until racial profiling in all its forms is outlawed," Jealous said.
A civil rights probe had previously been opened by the Department of Justice and a spokeswoman said the department would continue to "evaluate the evidence generated during the federal investigation, as well as the evidence and testimony from the state trial."

you mean ala Black Panthers on video??
We knew the ‘justice’ department would not let this stand. They will harass this innocent man and heap on his back all the alleged evils of Whites since the beginning of history.
This would have negative fallout for the Obama administration, therefore it "aint gonna happen." Trayvon Martin and George Zimmerman have already been used for their purpose during the General Election. Their purpose was to instigate racial division and hate to get the minorities to the polls to vote for Obama. Martin and Zimmerman are not longer of any use to Obama and have a negative value to him at this time.
“Thats why he should just say eff it and leave the country.”
He can’t leave. He has to stay here and make money. You can’t live on thin air, and he’s basically close to broke. Plus his wife still has charges against her that will have to be addressed, as the State of FL will now go after her vociferously. If they can’t get George, they’ll get his wife Shellie and toss her in the clink if they can get away with it. However, MoM and West to the rescue again.
“Zimmerman being half Black”
Zimmerman is half Peruvian (hispanic), 1/8 Black, and the rest White
Agreed. A federal prosecution of Zimmerman would tick off a lot of swing voters in the upcoming midterm elections, thus making a Rat takeover of the House impossible.
I am holding my tongue...because what would be said would reflect very badly on FR.
So now neighborhood watchers are stalkers?
I’m getting really sick of the idea that because of a “history” that most blacks weren’t even alive for, because they weren’t even born yet, that they get to run around exacting revenge for it.
yep really damn sick of it.
Ben Jealous is a “White Black”. Son of a “White” man and a “Black woman”.
And on top of that, they really don’t actually seem to know anything about that history.
Martin was killed while in the commission of a violent felony.
The NAACP promotes violence.
They should be charged under RICO statutes.
They say racial profiling should be outlawed yet they’re racial profiling Zimmerman as guilty based on his race. The irony.
I’ve read that his GF was black and his mother 1/2 that would make it 1/4 in any case they generally say anyone with black blood is black
yep really damn sick of it.
As am I. It has come down to this: Racism has become the new charge utilized to explain why any group is unwilling to improve their socio-economic status through hard work, or to justify being a failure and burden on the broader population. It has been ingrained into the mush filled skulls since birth that someone owes them something just by nature of their existence and if anything ever gets difficult, it's racism.
This needs repeating :
I have no idea what trial the NAACP was watching , but the Zimmerman trial obviously wasn't it !
That having been said, this "SHOW TRIAL and the allegations have run their course for a year and a half.
Why call it a "SHOW TRIAL" ?
Because it was politicized , commercialized not only by politicians,and race baiters,but especially by the media !
The media jumped on this case 2-3 weeks AFTER the assault.
The media altered audio tapes to demonstrate non-existant racial profiling, when they KNEW that it didn't exist !
The media selectively showed Trayvon's picture at age 13 yrs old, a purposely deceptive tactic.
The media selectively showed George's photo in black and white, purposely to not see broken nose, or blood on both temples , or the back of the head.
The media then ran with the propaganda , especially when the president said : "If I had a son ,..."
Then they worked themselves into a frenzy, already finding Zimmerman guilty BEFORE trial.
The media poisioned the community against Zimmerman for OVER A YEAR with their propaganda ; each network tried to out-do each other with the sensationalization .
If anyone is selectively running "racial profiling " , .. it is the NAACP !!
It's all about energizing the potential voter base !
'Stand Your Ground' was never an issue in this trial !
This trial was all about 'SELF-DEFENSE' from a 'sucker-punch' ,a broken nose ,banging someone's head on concrete , and MMA "Ground-and-Pound", choking on blood , vs. the use of a firearm .
we want white people to have to legally run away when a black person attacks them. hat’s basically what they want. total safety when they feel dissed and want to punch and attack someone. put it onto the victim to get the hell away from the violent attacker before figuring thinking about fighting back.
imagine saying to women you have to try to put a condom on the rapist before fighting back from being raped.
you are already guilty in their minds anyway. guilty by being white.
i’m gonna steal that statement.
With all the "racial homogenizing" that 's been going on for thousands of years, I'd guess that everyone currently breathing has a drop or two of "black blood". Actually it's just as red as all the rest...
