How in the world could Attorney General Eric Holder prosecute Zimmerman when his investigators, the FBI, found “no evidence Zimmerman was a racist” – click to read article

By Greta Van Susteren, Originally published on GretaWire

This article below is from last Thursday. Surely the Attorney General has spoken to his FBI, right? If this Miami Herald article is correct, I can’t imagine how the DOJ can prosecute George Zimmerman. But….I might be missing something so we will have to wait and see..

FBI records: agents found no evidence that Zimmerman was racist

By Frances Robles and Scott Hiaason | Miami Herald

After interviewing nearly three dozen people in the George Zimmerman murder case, the FBI found no evidence that racial bias was a motivating factor in the shooting of Trayvon Martin, records released Thursday show.

Because Holder will invent material and make up stuff that never happened. That's how. Holder's DOJ was responsible for turning this self-defense case into a "civil rights" case from the very start. On orders from his boss.

How?
Greta, let me point you to the trip down the rabbit hole known as the Black Panthers voter intimidation case.
It was cut and dried, easily provable, even had videotape of racist voter intimidation by the black panthers.
Yet the DOJ said there was nothing to see here, move along.
That same somnambulance is how Holder will manufacture a case against Zimmerman, by pretending that there is something where there is nothing, pretending has worked so well for him in the past.

Is Holder that stupid? Stupid enough by invent false evidence against Zimmerman? It better be some air tight BS or I see goodbye to the DOJ their lawyers.

Defense attorney MO’M has about 40 witnesses courtesy of the FBI that say otherwise in a 300 page investigative report from 2012 to slam Holder and rest of the nutso in this administration.

They are determined to get Zimmerman for something, doesn't matter what.
If they can't, they'll still harass him until the day he dies.

Here’s a question: is documented racism (or behavior based on race) a prerequisite for a Civil Rights prosecution? It is for a hate crime, but that’s not what I’m talking about.

There was some talk/discussion out there about the possibility that Holder will charge Zimmerman based on violating Martin’s freedom of movement Civil Right. That may not require any sort of evidence that Zimmerman did so based on racism or racial profiling ...

In the absence of knowing more, I think a better option think of here is that violations of Civil Rights can only occur by the government and its agents. Zimmerman was a Neighborhood Watch volunteer. That’s a MASSIVE stretch to get to him on. One that would have a complete chilling effect on ALL neighborhood watch organizations, nationwide.

Easy.

Once you believe in the rule of man instead of the rule of law.

And who alive better exemplifies the rule of man than Obama and Holder (with apologies to Robert Mugabe of Zimbabwe and Kim of North Korea)?

“How in the world could Attorney General Eric Holder prosecute Zimmerman when his investigators, the FBI, found “no evidence Zimmerman was a racist.”

Holder’s DOJ don’t need no stinkin’ evidence; Ebono-statistics PROVE his guilt. Young black males constitute less than 20% of the Florida population, yet 100% of those shot by Zimmerman were young black males.

(This is offered as sarcasm, but is awfully close to the truth as seen in DOJ lawsuits attacking companies that consider criminal history for racism since blacks are disproportionately criminals.)

You'd think that Zimmerman would at least get an apology from Rick Santorum.

That's right, Rick... we remember your stupid-ass comments from May, 2012.

Gingrich says Fla. shooter found "dangerous" hobby

WASHINGTON (AP) — Republican presidential contender Newt Gingrich calls the shooting death of a black Florida teen "a tragedy" and describes the man responsible as "a guy who'd found a hobby that's very dangerous."

How could Holder not prosecute the Black Panthers for voter intimidation when they were caught on video??

How could this administration spy on citizens and journalists?

How could Obama delay damaging parts of Obamacare until after the election?

Oh, yeah...... nevermind....

I can’t imagine how they could prove such a case or even bring it to trial.

It would require evidence that Zimmerman prevented Martin from moving freely on the street before he killed Martin. It has already been established that there are no witnesses to the start of the confrontation.

The only possible civil rights action against Zimmerman is wrongful death; that Zimmerman did not have just and lawful cause to take Martin’s life. That train has left the station. The State of Florida pretty much exhausted that line of evidence.

Of course if you are running a show trial valid evidence is a take it or leave it proposition.

Read Holder’s statement.

He is only going to pretend that he is looking into it, pretend that he is investigating, pretend that he is leaving no stone unturned as he searches for racism, but other than pretend he will do nothing.

Holder wants an honest discussion of race - really he said that...

The first tip off the 'honest discussion' might be one-sided was when Holder opened the discussion with this comment, "you dumb crackers sit down and shut up - we'll tell you how you're going to feel about race...If you disagree the FBI will take notes and investigate you for hate crimes.

If the FBI won't arrest you, we'll do our own investigation and I've already decided all of you are guilty of hate crimes.

The hate crime? Thinking the wrong thoughts.. - and what's that? Anything Holder wants it to be... Oh, and how many fingers am I holding up, Winston?"

Democrats and other leftists do not need facts and information to form their opinions. It does not matter what the FBI found, or what the jury found, or the facts of the case concerning Zimmerman. Does it with this Administration?

Given the number of riots and protests based on nothing, we have already become a third world country. Young people have been taught to fight the law to support their version of justice. We are living in dangerous times.

It makes no difference whether the DoJ will win against Zimmerman in a civil rights case. With the weight of the federal govt. they will grind him down to powder and turn public opinion.

Mark Levin said something interesting tonight: This is just a distraction. They have no case, and will fail at any more prosecution efforts. But the whole effort is to take the attention off Benghazi, 0bummerCare, and especially immigration.

We should send a few bucks to Zimmerman's legal defense fund if we can, and then move on to immigration right away. Zimmerman is in good legal hands—but the immigration bill is an existential threat to America right now.

O’Reilly just said Zimmerman instigated the whole thing. He says it was not a racist killing, but nevertheless, Zimmerman was responsible for what happened because he got out of his
car and was suspicious of Martin because he was wearing a hoodie and there had been lot of burgleries in the neighborhood. I posted an article this morning where I predicted that O’Reilly would blame the killing on Zimmerman.
