Zimmerman: Holder Announces (possible) Pursuit of Criminal Civil Rights Charges

Attorney General Eric Holder promised that the Justice Department "will continue to act in a manner that is consistent with the facts and the law" as it considers whether to pursue criminal civil rights charges against George Zimmerman for the death of Trayvon Martin.


Carney said he's not sure Mr. Obama has spoken with Holder on the matter. "I don't believe this is something the president views as something he would discuss with the attorney general," he said.
Carney added that Mr. Obama's personal views shouldn't influence the Justice Department's decision.

There goes our right to

There goes our right to defend ourselves from great bodily harm. I knew something smelled about this whole thing! Even after GZ gets acquitted on the count of self defense...he is still the bad guys in the narrative. And now people everywhere are honoring TM the thug with Skittles and AZ tea...ingredients along with Robotussin DXM or codeine for a popular thug concoction called "Purple Drank" or "Lean". Such idiots!

This could very well become a pro federal government power grab

Thank goodness for Obama and his Federal DOJ, fighting for justice where the state of Florida would not. Its like the civil rights movement all over again.

There should be a federal law that says every crime must be decided by Eric "Truth and Justice" Holder. And that self defense should be outlawed along with guns.


What does the Great White

What does the Great White African American President BO do now?

What's the MSM gonna do about all the white people running around with all the black people in the streets protesting together? Divide and conker is not working.

It's Holder

that should be investigated for high crimes! The arrogance of these people is astounding.


My first thought when I heard this on the news was "Isn't ol' Eric supposed to be under the jail right now? along with the other crook who got busted Gun Running" ol what's his name. Obombya.

Short Version

How about if Holder applies

How about if Holder applies his new vigilance to discovery of the facts in fast and furious.

Discovery of the facts... More like running to the shredder...

...as fast as he could. Fast and Furious II
