Jesse Jackson and Eric Holder have taken stands repulsive to America's independence, using the Zimmerman case as a cover. Jackson wants an UN investigation of the case, while Holder has denounced stand-your-ground laws.

The George Zimmerman case may have been decided, but the ramifications of that decision continue to reverberate. Following the jury’s acquittal of George Zimmerman for second degree murder in the shooting of Travyon Martin, a former employee at the Florida State Attorney’s office has indicated that he will be filing a whistleblower suit against George Zimmerman’s prosecutors.

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.
