Attorney General Eric Holder questioned the legitimacy of "stand your ground" laws that 25 states have adopted, claiming they "sow dangerous conflict." This directly contradicts Supreme Court precedents since the 1890s.
Various news media are trying to make the facts of the Zimmerman case fit the preordained conclusion of racism.
Neighborhood watch volunteer George Zimmerman, acquitted Saturday in a Florida court of second-degree murder and manslaughter charges, may yet face criminal prosecution by the U.S. Department of Justice for civil rights violations in the February 2012 killing of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin in Sanford, Florida.
NYPD Commissioner Raymond Kelly's close political connections with Senator Schumer and Mayor Bloomberg, coupled with his mini-police state technology keeping watch over New Yorkers, make him the "perfect candidate" to replace DHS Secretary Janet Napolitano.
Shortly after George Zimmerman was found not guilty late Saturday of second-degree murder and manslaughter in the self-defense shooting death of Trayvon Martin, unrest hit the city of Oakland as race-mongers like Al Sharpton, the NAACP, and even some Democrat members of Congress publicly demanded that the Obama administration pursue federal “civil rights” charges instead. So far, the verdict has elicited outrage and sadness from Martin supporters, while those who believed Zimmerman acted in self-defense reacted with a mixture of relief and anxiety about what comes next.
