The NAACP on its website has posted a petition requesting that Attorney General Holder, himself a criminal, open a civil rights case against George Zimmerman. The FBI previously investigated the case and found race to be a non-issue. In a political move by the Obama Administration, with the return of a not guilty verdict ,the DOJ has decided to "look into" pursuing civil rights inquiries. The government will need to focus on hate crime statutes but will be hard pressed after state and federal level investigations both insist the killing was not racially motivated which leads one to believe that the DOJ can only be pursing the matter for political reasons.
DOJs selective investigation is the real civil rights violation. These are tools that tyrants use. This country was founded on the idea tat laws applied equally to all; all the time. Zimmerman has gone from defendant to pawn as the Obama Administration continues to use the publicity to spin attention away from his administration and the scandal upon scandal that keep stacking up daily. The real crime in the death of Trayvon Martin is the immediate and relentless media bias by the major networks - ABC NBS CBS CNN as well as interference with state sovereignty by the DOJ and President Obama. The local prosecutor now is complicit in this orchestrated malicious prosecution attempt.
The tragedy of Trayvon Martin's death is that his legacy will be one of government misconduct in its conspiracy against the rights of one of it's citizens (18 U.S.C. 241) and waste of taxpayer money.
