The U.S. Department of Justice on Monday afternoon appealed to civil rights groups and community leaders, nationally and in Sanford, for help investigating whether a federal criminal case might be brought against George Zimmerman for the shooting death of Trayvon Martin, one advocate said.
The DOJ has also set up a public email address to take in tips on its civil rights investigation
You've got to be kidding me. I mean, seriously, what can they possibly be expecting to learn? That Zimmerman at some point in his 30 years of life used a racially insensitive word? Are we really going to prosecute Zimmerman for a crime because he thought a wrong thought or said a wrong word sometime in his life?
And, without putting too fine a point on it... does anyone really think that there won't be enormous incentives for people to make things up about Zimmerman?
