Exactly. This is why I hate progressives.After 18 Months of trying to ANY piece of evidence they could use -- Factual or not, they have to give up in their racist pursuit of an unfortunate, and not real bright, wannabe-Cop.
Too bad they couldn't just invent some evidence.....
But that's okay, they got their mileage out of it. Now they don't need St Trayvon anymore...... His 'parents' are rich and they have the Black Lives Matter bullshit going on.......
Whatever. dimocraps are what they are -- the scum of the earth.
ALL of them
I don't hate progressives. I don't hate liberals. I like both, in fact but.....Exactly. This is why I hate progressives.
Or Zimmerman's previous criminal behavior, as he assaulted a cop and had other domestic violence episodes before he shot Trayvon Martin.
You can find this on Fox. If Zimmy didn't have a daddy who was a retired judge, his fat ass would be in prison.
Missouri state law allows for a police officer to fatally shoot a suspect in retreat.Now they can concentrate on trying in vain to charge Darren Wilson with something.
What I don't understand is how they can even investigate someone for violating civil rights if they they have no affirmative obligation to protect civil rights to begin with, like a sworn peace officer. How many private citizens know civil rights laws, so how could they act in willful defiance of those laws? This is why I thought this to be nothing but politics from the beginning.Or Zimmerman's previous criminal behavior, as he assaulted a cop and had other domestic violence episodes before he shot Trayvon Martin.
"Attorney General Eric Holder said in a statement that the Department of Justice’s investigation found that the evidence available could not meet the “high standard for a federal hate crime prosecution,”

It boils down to whether Zimmerman acted based on racial bias alone.
Since it was in the evening and Martin was wearing a hoodie, they couldn't prove that Zimmerman saw clearly that Martin was a black kid.
""The federal investigation sought to determine whether the evidence of the events that led to Martin’s death were sufficient to prove beyond a reasonable doubt that Zimmerman’s actions violated the federal criminal civil rights statutes, specifically Section 3631 of Title 42 of the U.S. Code or Section 249 of Title 18 of the U.S. Code, as well as other relevant federal criminal statutes. Section 3631 criminalizes willfully using force or threat of force to interfere with a person’s federally protected housing rights on account of that person’s race or color. Section 249 criminalizes willfully causing bodily injury to a person because of that person’s actual or perceived race. Courts define “willfully” to require proof that a defendant knew his acts were unlawful, and committed those acts in open defiance of the law. It is one of the highest standards of intent imposed by law.
The federal investigation examined whether Zimmerman violated civil rights statutes at any point during his interaction with Martin, from their initial encounter through the fatal shooting. This included investigating whether there is evidence beyond a reasonable doubt that Zimmerman violated Section 3631 by approaching Martin in a threatening manner before the fatal shooting because of Martin’s race and because he was using the residential neighborhood. Investigators also looked at whether there is evidence beyond a reasonable doubt that Zimmerman violated Section 3631 or Section 249, by using force against Martin either during their struggle or when shooting Martin, because of Martin’s race.""""
