Eric Holder’s Department of Justice’s banana-republic bona fides are solid. But if true, a new scandal bolsters these “credentials” considerably.
Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton alleges that “the little-known [DOJ] agency, the Community Relations Service,” helped to organize “marches, demonstrations and rallies related to the shooting and death of an African-American teen by a neighborhood watch captain.”
That description could only apply to the Trayvon Martin killing, for which Zimmerman is currently on trial. The heated protests and national media attention helped build the pressure last year for Zimmeran’s arrest — he was not initially charged after claiming self-defense.
“The Community Relations Service was in Sanford, Florida fulfilling their mandated mission.”
The Blaze investigates the story (because Big Media won’t).
UPDATE I (7/12): “Not Guilty – Beyond Reasonable Doubt” By Pat Buchanan:
“What we have witnessed in Sanford, Fla., is the prosecution of an innocent man for murder because the politically and socially powerful demanded it.”
George Zimmerman’s defense has proven, beyond a reasonable doubt, that he shot Trayvon Martin not out of malice, rage or hate – but in a desperate act of self-defense.
Zimmerman was being beaten “ground-and-pound,” mixed martial arts style. His head was being banged on the cement. Screaming again and again for help, he pulled out his gun and fired.
Even the prosecution is now conceding Trayvon might have been on top and is now scrambling for a compromise verdict on a lesser charge than second-degree murder, a charge that never should have been brought. Indeed, this trial should never have been held.
UPDATE II: The Black Zimmerman Walked.
Ann Coulter proves, contra the lying media, that were he black and his “victim” white, George Zimmerman would have walked. In fact, the black Zimmerman did walk. “It is only when the victim is black that we must have a show trial, a million-dollar reward paid to the victim’s parents and the threat of riots”:
The only reason it’s hard to imagine the Zimmerman case with the races reversed is that it’s hard to imagine a white teenager living in a mixed-race, middle-class community, mugging a black homeowner. This is not a problem of society’s reactions, but of the facts.
There is, however, at least one case of a black homeowner fatally shooting a white troublemaker. He was not charged with murder.
In 2006, the ironically named John White was sound asleep at his nice Long Island home when his teenage son woke him to say there was a mob of white kids shouting epithets in front of the house. The family was in no imminent danger. They could have called 911 and remained safely behind locked doors.
But White grabbed a loaded Beretta and headed out to the end of the driveway to confront the mob. A scuffle ensued and White ended up shooting one of the kids in the face, killing him.
John White wasn’t jumped, knocked to the ground, repeatedly punched and his skull knocked against the ground. He wasn’t even touched, though he claimed the white teen was lunging at him. Talk about no reason to “follow,” there was no reason for him to leave the safety of his locked home. White’s son knew the kids by name. They could have waited for the cops.
