How Zimmerman’s Colorblind Trial Helps the Justice Dept.’s Case

Veteran civil rights attorneys and advocates are convinced that enough evidence of wrongdoing remains from the George Zimmerman case to allow the U.S. Department of Justice to file additional charges against Trayvon Martin’s killer.* Over a million people have signed an NAACP petition in agreement. The Justice Department has responded by reopening the investigation they started early last year, when the Sanford police still were figuring out for weeks if they would even arrest Zimmerman.

“I am concerned about this case and as we confirmed last spring, the Justice Department has an open investigation into it,” U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder told the NAACP at their national convention in Orlando yesterday.“While that inquiry is ongoing, I can promise that the Department of Justice will consider all available information before determining what action to take.”

Civil rights division attorneys in the Justice Department are working with the FBI to evaluate the Zimmerman case above and beyond what was argued in state court. There are two main differences between this federal investigation and the state’s: One, the federal government has broader resources and authority to examine everything that went wrong in the Zimmerman case; and, two, unlike the state’s prosecution, they have no reason to leave race out of it.

Actually, the Justice Department’s intervention is made possible by the state trial’s racial disappearing act. The judge presiding over the Zimmerman trial barred racial profiling evidence from arguments, and the prosecution didn’t bother bringing it up. The jury was instructed to rule based exclusively on the evidence before them, and that evidence made no reference to the idea that Zimmerman may have followed Martin because he was black.

“Race was clearly the centerpiece of the case,” Vincent Southerland, senior counsel for NAACP Legal Defense Fund, told me in a phone interview.“It was the reason for the encounter [between Zimmerman and Martin] in the first place and it’s the reason Zimmerman thought [Martin] was a criminal from the moment he laid eyes on him.”

But local and state officials aren’t built for these kinds of racial investigations; the Justice Department is.

Lewis Black: New York City is better than Texas because ‘F*ck you, Texas’
Listen, Texas,” he said,“trying to steal jobs from Illinois and California is one thing, but you’re going to try to trash-talk about New York? Not on my watch.”
Vowing to “fight fire with fire,” Black rolled his own ad, in which he said in voice-over,“This is New York City, the city that never sleeps. People come here from all over the world, for the freedom to live as they choose, for the variety of cultures, but most of all, for the fact that it’s not Texas.”
“Fuck you, Texas!” New Yorkers gleefully shout at the video’s climax, in a multitude of languages.
“‘Don’t mess with Texas?’” Black mocked.“Don’t fuck with New York.”

Illinois is a joke in itself. Chicago= The next Detroit. There is no way out for the people there except to leave. Liberalism has taken over. California may as well be given back to Mexico and New York? they can have the Untied Nations as their capitol. Democrat liberal bastions of hell all the states you mentioned.

Great Republican ideas:

Hey George! Just borrow trillions for war!
I am glad I am not a commoner is all I can say. It was another 2000 dollars in refund and then the state of Wisconsin passed out another 800 dollars. Were the commoners the ones that never worked?

George Zimmerman won't be getting his gun back anytime soon after all. Good Move, Attorney General Eric Holder! "The Sanford Police Department froze its plan to return Zimmerman's gun Thursday after the FBI put a hold on evidence in the case, Sanford police spokesman Capt. James McAuliffe told the Los Angeles Times.

The FBI's request signals that the Justice Department is proceeding with its civil rights investigation into Zimmerman's killing of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin.

McAuliffe said the gun, a 9-millimeter semiautomatic, won't be returned until the department completes its investigation and had no further need for evidence in the case."

Missed the point, again.

THE MONEY WAS ALL BORROWED.....TRILLIONS.

$50 million for each billionaire.

Scraps for the people.

Taken from the US Treasury during wartime.

The USA still owes every dime borrowed by Bush!

TRILLIONS.

Plus the ensuing economics destruction caused by Republicans.

Wake up clueless.....

Oh, and I would love to see federal charges filed against "your" pudgy killer.

RICHMOND — Investigators looking into gifts to Gov. Robert F. McDonnell and his family have asked questions about whether first lady Maureen McDonnell received cosmetic dental work for free, according to two people familiar with the probe.

Federal officials have been investigating allegations that a dentist within the large Richmond-area practice of W. Baxter Perkinson Jr. provided cosmetic dentistry services at no charge to the first lady, according to the two people, who spoke on the condition of anonymity because the investigation is ongoing.
Free dental work would expand the number of gifts that the first family has received and add a new name to what has been a short list of benefactors. It also would fit a pattern of items given to Maureen McDonnell — including designer clothing and accessories — that appear to have been aimed at polishing her image as first lady.

(Polish her image? So she had no teeth and wore Walmart clothes? Sounds like that hillbilly from Alaska)
