Reid, MoveOn, NAACP Want Zimmerman Re-Tried

First we have this from Breitbart:

Reid on Zimmerman: ‘This Isn’t Over With’

14 Jul 2013

On Sunday, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) asked for the Justice Department to prosecute George Zimmerman, who was acquitted Saturday night in the killing of Trayvon Martin.

“I think the Justice Department is going to take a look at this,” Reid told NBC’s Meet the Press. “This isn’t over with and I think that’s good. That’s our system, it’s gotten better, not worse.” …

So the former lawyer, Harry Reid, thinks it’s a good thing to put someone in double jeopardy because he didn’t get the verdict he wanted.

And this, from the Daily Caller:

MoveOn and NAACP pushed Holder to look into civil rights case against Zimmerman

By Patrick Howley | July 14, 2013

The progressive activist group MoveOn.org partnered with the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) in successfully pushing the Department of Justice to review the verdict in the George Zimmerman trial.

“Last night MoveOn members from all walks of life joined with the NAACP to demand justice for Trayvon,” MoveOn announced Sunday, the same day the Department of Justice (DOJ) announced that it was reviewing a potential civil rights case against Zimmerman, the neighborhood watchman acquitted Saturday in the shooting death of Trayvon Martin.

NAACP President Benjamin Todd Jealous sent an email out to MoveOn members early Sunday at 1:43 AM entitled “George Zimmerman found not guilty.”

“We’re calling on the U.S. Justice Department to open a civil rights case against George Zimmerman and have launched a petition to Attorney General Eric Holder,” Jealous told MoveOn members.

The petition has been signed more than 180,000 times as of this writing…

It’s easy to get a lot of online ‘signatures’ when you have professional astroturf groups like Organizing For Action. Each of whom have hundreds of bogus internet accounts.

The DOJ announced Sunday that it is looking into the possibility of a civil rights case against Zimmerman. “Experienced federal prosecutors will determine whether the evidence reveals a prosecutable violation,” said the DOJ in a statement…

And never mind that the FBI has already investigated whether Trayvon Martin’s civil rights were violated, and found a year ago that they were not.

From the archives of the Miami Herald:

FBI records: agents found no evidence that Zimmerman was racist

By Frances Robles and Scott Hiaason | July 12, 2012

After interviewing nearly three dozen people in the George Zimmerman murder case, the FBI found no evidence that racial bias was a motivating factor in the shooting of Trayvon Martin, records released Thursday show.

Even the lead detective in the case, Sanford Det. Chris Serino, told agents that he thought Zimmerman profiled Trayvon because of his attire and the circumstances — but not his race. Serino saw Zimmerman as “having little hero complex, but not as a racist.”

The Duval County State Attorney released another collection of evidence in the Zimmerman murder case Thursday, including reports from FBI agents who investigated whether any racial bias was involved in Trayvon’s Feb. 26 killing. The evidence includes bank surveillance videos from the day of the killing, crime scene photos and memos from prosecutors…

Federal agents interviewed Zimmerman’s neighbors and co-workers, but none said Zimmerman had expressed racial animus at any time prior to the Feb. 26 shooting of Martin, a black teen, in a confrontation at a Sanford housing complex. As Sanford police investigated the circumstances of Martin’s death, the FBI opened a parallel probe to determine if Martin’s civil rights had been violated.

Notice that the DOJ did not have to wait to be asked by the NAACP and MoveOn to investigate whether "Martin’s civil rights have been violated."

Several co-workers said they had never seen Zimmerman display any prejudice or racial bias…

In all, the FBI interviewed 35 people about Zimmerman, from current and former co-workers to neighbors and an ex-girlfriend…

And never mind the fact that Zimmerman is himself from a ‘mixed race’ family. (His father is a white American, his mother is Peruvian with black ancestry through her Afro-Peruvian maternal grandfather.) Or that he ‘mentored’ black kids.

Still, it’s clear the FBI screwed up their investigation last year, so they will have re-investigate Zimmerman again. And they will have to keep investigating him, until they find the evidence their bosses demand. In the name of ‘social justice.’

      No, they want to string him up and beat him with sticks until the evil comes out.

      They are savages by any definition of the term, tribal savages who don’t understand the world around them so they light fires at night, howl at the moon and give power to their tribal witch doctors.

    This from the dude that can’t and won’t present a budget even though the law says otherwise.
    Go figure.

  3. canary says:

    I think the feds need to raid Senator Harry Reid’s mega weapons ranch or do an audit.
    How could one person possibly need dozens of weapons and guns to shoot just one turkey.
