Holder: We Might Still Prosecute Zimmerman
Despite the complete failure of both local and federal law enforcement to find any evidence whatsoever of George Zimmermanís supposed racism ending in the death of black teenager Trayvon Martin in February 2012 in Florida, the Obama administration continues to threaten prosecution against Zimmerman. On Monday, Attorney General Eric Holder said that despite Zimmermanís acquittal in his second-degree murder trial, the Department of Justice was still considering whether to bring civil rights charges against Zimmerman. ďI'm not sure exactly how much longer that will take, but we will get to a point where we are able to make a determination,Ē he said.
The Obama administration has taken an incredibly active role in the Zimmerman case, with President Obama originally intervening before Zimmermanís arrest to state that if he had a son, he would have looked like Trayvon Martin; after Zimmermanís acquittal, Obama gave a speech on race relations in America implying that Zimmerman had racially profiled Martin.
The Department of Justice also sent members of the government to facilitate rallies against Zimmerman in Sanford, Florida, prior to Zimmermanís arrest.
Black Blade: Now it's just persecution. Nothing to do with justice. Didn't get the verdict they joped for now they will dog Zimmerman until at least a new regime takes power.
