It was widely reported in the news at the time that the Justice Department's Civil Rights Division was looking into the killing of Martin and release without arrest of his killer. That's their role. That's what they were created to do.Zimmerman Trial: The Holder Justice Department’s Latest Abuse of Power
Judicial Watch has released documents showing the latest abuse of power by the Department of Justice (DOJ): helping “organize and manage rallies and protests against George Zimmerman.”
Whatever one may think about the guilt or innocence of Zimmerman in his ongoing trial, we should all agree that the chief law enforcement agency of the federal government should not be involved in stage-managing public protests. Yet according to the documents obtained by Judicial Watch through a Freedom of Information Act request, the Community Relations Service at Eric Holder’s DOJ “deployed to Sanford, FL, to work marches, demonstrations, and rallies related to the shooting and death of an African-American teen.”
The Community Relations Service provided “support for protest deployment” and “technical assistance” to event organizers for a march and rally on March 31. According to the Orlando Sentinel, Community Relations Service staff even helped organize a meeting between the city of Sanford and the local NAACP that resulted in the temporary resignation of police chief Bill Lee.
Seriously, you'd have to be a wingnut of the lowest intelligence to think that the Civil Rights Division investigating a possible civil rights violation is somehow scandalous. LMAO!
